Original Astringent

(4 customer reviews)


Experience home-grown healing power with THAYERS® Original Astringent. This gentle astringent is derived from a time-honored formula, developed by Thayers to cleanse, tone, moisturize, and balance the pH level of skin. In addition to containing certified organic Aloe Vera, this unique, proprietary blend also contains certified organic, non-distilled Witch Hazel that’s grown exclusively for Thayers on a family farm in Fairfield County, Connecticut. By avoiding distillation of our Witch Hazel, we’re able to preserve the naturally-occurring, beneficial tannins, which are known to offer antioxidant and antibacterial benefits, and bring about a natural glow. Thayers elixirs have been a fixture in medicine cabinets for generations – once you use them, you’ll know why.

  1. brooke

    just started using this and noticed right away my skins brighter and more clear, and so smooth. even though this formula is the astringent and not alcohol free I don’t find it drying at all, the alcohol is just a 10% and its gentle enough to just give a deeper cleanse! give it a try!

    the stuff is great, using the lavender mix. not like the others, these guys seem to be doing something more magical with this potion. tightens pores and clears up skin making it more translucent.

    I love this! I have had acne prone skin. As other reviewers stated, this formula tightens pores and clears skin. It is gentle and not drying to the skin. I am happy with my face! 🙂 I have purchased this for my daughter as well. My daughter is 12 and she was beginning to get those small bumps on her face. I had her to use a gentle face soap, this product, and a little natural aveeno moisturizer. It works!! My daughter quickly reminds me when she is out of this astringent. We love this stuff! Thank you for making high quality products!!
