Witch Hazel, a flowering plant known for its medicinal properties, has become the brand’s hero ingredient. Today, Witch Hazel is incorporated into Thayers highly sought after alcohol-free toners and astringents, as well as our new facial mists and body bars. Thayers Witch Hazel is Certified Organic and sourced from a family farm in Fairfield County, Connecticut. Their products are made the old-fashioned way – and not distilled – so they contain 195% more tannins, which are naturally occurring substances found in the bark and skin of some plants, including Witch Hazel. Tannins have mild antioxidant properties and help to balance skin’s pH levels.
