Cottonwood buds have been used for centuries for a wide variety of medicinal purposes. The list of uses for the medicinal tree is long indeed. It is most well known for it's powerful anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties. In fact, all of the Salix species of plants, including Aspen and willows, all possess the same chemical in their leaves, stem, bark and bud. That chemical is Salicin, Salicin is converted into Salicylic Acid inside the body. My unique use of the cottonwood bud infused oil might be the first time anyone has brought to bear it's powerful medicine in a cleansing oil blend. .
Made with fresh wildcrafted cottonwood buds from my local environment which I collect in the spring then immediately infuse into organic Avocado Oil. The strained, fresh, infused oil is blended with other astringent, clarifying, deep poor cleansing oils, enhance with therapeutic grade essential oils, and 2.5% Beta Hydroxy Acid.
Salicin is found in concentrated amounts in the sticky, bright reddish orange sap which exudes from the cottonwood buds. I extract this resin from the buds into organic Avocado oil. The resin melts into the oil, creating a Salicin rich infusion which I will then blend with other astringent oils to create safe, effective cleansing oil with gentle exfoliating action which benefits both both acne prone and mature skin.
Salicin's exfoliating action provides anti-aging benefits by stimulating skin cell turnover, working to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The anti-inflammatory properties of Salicin reduces swelling, redness and itching outbreaks, something I personally have suffered from in the past.

The extracted resin from the Cottonwood bud is also rich in tannins. Tannins are complex chemical substances derived from phenolic acids (sometimes called tannic acid). Tannins are what color tea brown and which turns the infused oil a similar color. Tannins penetrate the hair follicle, removing excess sebum, makeup, sunscreen, dirt, grease and grim which can make skin look dull. You may be familiar with the use of green and black tea in skin treatments.

Cottonwood buds have the same quality. Tannins are astringent, meaning they tighten pores by drawing skin tissue together helping minimize pore size, reduce swelling and soothing inflammatory skin conditions. Tannins, similar to Salicin, reducec inflammation so the infused oil brings another level of irritation calming properties..
The buds contain powerful anti-fungal and anti-microbial compounds, helping protect the skin from pathogenic microbes responsible for itchiness, outbreaks, and other skin issues.
