Thayers witch hazel with aloe vera rose petal description: with aloe vera formula gentle moisturizes vitamin e alcohol-free rose petal witch hazel toner with certified organic witch hazel and aloe vera formula over 120 years ago, rose thayer, niece of henry thayer m.D., developed an all-natural recipe for extra-soft, youthful-looking skin. As she aged, many would comment on how she always looked 10 years younger than she was. Now, for the first time, her secret formula of rose petal water blended with witch hazel extract, certified organic aloe vera and vitamin e, is being made available. Witch hazel helps to tighten pores, and to smooth and beautify skin without drying. Thayers proprietary certified organic witch hazel (derived from the bark) is not distilled, thereby 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 virginana" plant medica 54(1988):454-457).
