A natural gentle skin toner derived from a time honored Native American formula. Now people with sensitive skin and sensitivity to fragrances have an Alcohol-Free Unscented Witch Hazel Toner.
Thayers developed this all natural toner for healthy-looking skin, adding moisture while helping to protect the skin from airborne impurities, and as an alternative to drying astringents. Witch Hazel helps tighten pores, and to smooth and beautify the skin. Thayers proprietary Witch Hazel extract (derived from the bark) is not distilled, there by maintaining all the beneficial natural tannins. Assay of hamamelitannin shows that Witch Hazel bark extract is 31 times richer in hamamelitannin than the leaf extract and 87 times richer than the stem extract (Resource: Vennat, B., "Tannins from Hamamelis virginiana" Planta Medica 54 (1988):454-457).
Apply with a cotton ball or soft pad to cleanse, soften, refresh and moisturize skin. Use anytime throughout the day as a softening refresher.
Purified water, aloe barbadensis leaf juice (certified organic filet of aloe vera), glycerin (certified organic vegetable), hamamelis virginiana extract (made from certified organic witch hazel), citric acid, citrus grandis (grapefruit) seed extract.
iHerb Customer Reviews
Unlike other witch hazel toners and astringents, this one is free of alcohol, sulfates, parabens, petroleum, phthalates, PEGs, silicon, propylene glycol, phenoxyethanol, toxic and dangerous chemicals, additives, preservatives, dyes, synthetic and artificial fragrances, never tested on animals, and undistilled, which helps it maintain all the beneficial phenols, tannins and catechins naturally occurring in the leaves and bark of the witch hazel shrub. Another great thing about this product is that the witch hazel extract is certified organic and derived from the bark, not the leaves of the witch hazel shrub, which makes this toner more potent, because witch hazel bark extract is 31 times richer in hamamelitannin than the leaf extract and 87 times richer than the stem extract. Witch hazel is one of the best natural astringents known to man and a powerful antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiviral, antifungal, analgesic, antispasmodic, cicatrizant, emollient, toning, soothing, and healing agent. Rich in phenols and tannins of the proanthocyanin type, gallic acid, catechins, flavonols, especially kaempferol and quercetin, carvacrol, eugenol, hexenol, choline and saponins, witch hazel does wonders for all skin types. It gently cleanses and detoxifies the skin, protects it from airborne impurities, exfoliates dead skin cells, draws out excess dirt and oil, removes impurities and debris from under the skin without stripping the skin's protective layer, unclogs and tightens pores decreasing their size, regulates sebum production, soothes, tones, firms, smoothes, invigorates, revitalizes, heals, beautifies and rejuvenates the skin, helping restore its elasticity, calms itching, reduces redness and inflammation, improves the complexion, evens out the skin tone, supports and strengthens the skin's defensive mechanisms, improves cellular circulation, stimulates cell renewal, regeneration and collagen production, fights and prevents acne, spots, blemishes, and infections, facilitates the healing of small wounds, sores, burns, bruises, cuts, insect bites, stings, abscesses, boils, blisters, and even reduces stretch marks and scars and helps prevent premature aging. Witch hazel is also great for the scalp and hair: it soothes and heals dry, flaky and itchy scalp, regulates sebum production, removes excess oil, dirt and product buildup without stripping the scalp's protective layer, prevents and treats dandruff and flakiness, fights infections, protects the scalp at the cellular level, strengthens the root bulbs and follicle connection, stimulates keratin production and hair growth. This product contains other beneficial ingredients, too: certified organic aloe vera leaf juice is an amazing soothing and healing agent capable of calming itching, reducing redness and inflammation, vegetable glycerin deeply moisturizes, nourishes and softens the skin locking in moisture and preventing dryness and dehydration, vitamin E (as suming it's non-GMO) is a natural preservative and powerful antioxidant neutralizing free radicals and preventing premature aging. This toner contains citric acid, as well. Citric acid is naturally found in citrus fruits and generally a safe pH adjusting, chelating and buffering agent stimulating skin peeling and cell renewal, but it may be a little too harsh and dehydrating for very dry, delicate and sensitive skin and cause irritation and allergic reactions. So, this alcohol free unscented witch hazel toner with aloe vera is not hypoallergenic and may not be suitable for everyone. But other than that, it's a great product and alternative to mainstream toners and astringents filled with toxic chemicals and skin irritants. It really works for me: it improves my complexion, evens out my skin tone, reduces redness and inflammation. So, if you don't have incredibly sensitive and allergy-prone skin, this product is worth trying.
1st month : I love how unscented it is. Cus most toners usually drive me crazy. Most toners are drying too , but nope not this one, not at all. (It doesn't have alcohol) most alcohol free toner is expensive in my country . Not only is this toner comes in a big bottle it's so affordable too! This toner moisturizes since it has glycerin in it. I'm planning to buy thayers rose petals toner on my next purchase cus rosewater +witch hazel + glycerin toner? Too much of a goodness for our face!!! I feel so happy using it each time. I'm only using it after each makeup cleansing . I don't know if this is the product but I would say my mouth area which used to be darker in the past due to natural pigmentation has fade so much. Its less noticeable! Maybe its this , maybe its not. Can't guarantee though. My spots has also fade like 30% ? I would continue update on this page each month. So please thumbs up on my review. Thanks!!

Smells like death (since it's unscented)

This smells awwful, but it gets the job done! The smell fades after a little while. I've decanted this into a spray bottle and have taken to spraying it on my face and then cleaning off with cotton pieces. It does clean my face though, so 4 stars!

I use this as my facial toner and in my baby's diaper wipe recipe and haven't had any problems with it. The price is good too.
Effective and value for money

I have used this as a facial toner for about two weeks. Keeps skin refreshed and hydrated after washing. I have yet to see if it has any effects on minimising pores. I put it in a spritzer bottle and add a few drops of glycerine to make it even more hydrating as my skin is dry. So far so good.
