What To Know About Birch Sap And Its Skincare Benefits

Birch sap is a natural skincare ingredient that’s rapidly gained in popularity these past few years, but few people actually know where it comes from and what benefits it offers. In this guide, we’ll explain how birch sap is extracted, what benefits it offers for the skin, and how to incorporate birch sap into your skincare routine.

What Is Birch Sap?

Birch sap is sometimes referred to as birch juice, birch extract, and birch tree water in the skincare world. It comes from (you guessed it) the birch tree, which comes in dozens of varieties. They are commonly found in the Northern Hemisphere and thrive in temperate climates. They have silver white bark marked with dark gray knots, and sprout teardrop shaped leaves with jagged edges. The leaves turn a beautiful bright golden yellow in the fall, which is what the birch tree is known for.
What you might not know is that the sap of the birch trees has many beneficial properties, which is why birch sap is beginning to be featured in skincare products more often. Birch sap is full of beneficial components such as amino acids, vitamins, minerals, proteins, and xylitol. These compounds are why it’s been featured in many different up-and-coming skincare products over the past few years, including our very own Trail Blazer Anywhere Shaving Lotion.
Birch sap is extracted in much the same way that maple sap is, and then it can be refined and incorporated into various skincare products.This thin consistency makes it ideal for formulation in skincare products. Read on to discover why you should be putting birch sap on your skin!

Birch Sap Benefits

Birch sap extract offers many potential benefits for the skin. First of all, it helps to reduce inflammation and soothe irritated skin. It also has hydrating properties that help to plump up your skin and restore dull or dry patches. These properties are why we decided to incorporate birch sap into our shaving lotion: It lubricates your skin to prepare it for shaving and reduces the chances of razor burn and irritation afterwards.
Birch tree juice is also high in antioxidants, which may help to protect your skin from free radical damage. This can also help to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. Birch sap extract also has purifying properties, which help to cleanse the skin and reduce the number of clogged pores. It’s also high in sugar content, which is a natural humectant that helps your skin to maintain an adequate level of water, resulting in well moisturized skin.

How To Use Birch Sap On Your Skin

To use our Trail Blazer Anywhere Shave Lotion with birch sap, first, dampen your skin with water. Working in sections, rub a small amount of the shaving lotion into your skin, then shave that patch by gliding your razor over the area. Repeat until you have shaved all the desired areas. Don’t forget to finish out your shower by cleaning up with our Get Up & Go™ Invigorating Body Wash!
