Birch Bark Skin Benefits:

When it comes to plants with cosmetic usage, birch bark is a very familiar ingredient. Its main constituents- betulin, lupeol, and betulinic acid are excellent for providing skincare benefits. This high concentration of triterpenes helps to promote keratinocyte migration, which is responsible for producing keratin-the protein that helps the skin withstand damage and stress. As a result, birch bark can lend a hand in maintaining skin quality and improving one’s complexion.1 2
