Ivy, Hedera helix, ext. is said to have a slimming and anti-cellulite effect because of its ability to prevent water accumulation in the skin tissue. Ivy extract is considered anti-bacterial, astringent, tonic, and soothing, particularly in burn cases. Apparently, ivy also has detergent, anti-parasitic, decongestant, and analgesic properties. In addition, ivy is indicated as vasoconstrictive and anti-exudative given its vitamin P content and ability to reduce capillary wall permeability. This extract seems to improve massage tolerance of sensitive skin areas as well. It lowers tissue sensitivity, activates circulation, and helps reduce local inflammation. Ivy extract contains saponins, foaming emulsion stabilizers, and surface-active agents that assist in ingredient penetration and the emulsification of fats. Ivy is effective as a circulation stimulant in shower gels and in bath salts for “orangepeel” and bloated skin. In herbal medicine, a decoction of ivy leaves was traditionally used to treat various skin eruptions and skin ulcers. Fresh ivy leaves were used to dress wounds and pusexuding sores.
