The root is turnip-like, native to Europe and the UK. Used in organic medicine and cosmetics, Swiss Comfrey Root is a wonderful ingredient when it comes to natural skincare.

How can Swiss Comfrey Root help my skin?


Swiss Comfrey Root contains high amounts of a substance called Allantoin. This incredible ingredient helps to promote new skin cell growth, encouraging wounds to heal quicker, reducing scarring and promote a healthy and youthful appearance to the skin.

Calming Skin Rashes

Cooling and soothing skin issues such as scratches, rashes and insect bites and stings, Swiss Comfrey Root will reduce any redness in the surrounding area, while healing irritated and inflamed skin.

Natural Astringent

Having mild astringent properties, Swiss Comfrey Root tightens, tones and shrinks open pores. It also helps to dry up and ease skin ulcers, sunburn and skin sores, making this versatile ingredient an excellent treatment for eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis.


Found in Swiss Comfrey Root are defensive compounds known as Tannins. These naturally protect the plant, and once applied onto the skin, will protect it from bacteria and toxins from the surrounding environment.

Joint Pain Relief

Another important use of Swiss comfrey Root is that is can help to effectively reduce pain caused by conditions such as arthritis, and injuries like muscle strains and sprains.

Antioxidant & Anti-inflammatory

A substance called Rosmarinic acid is found within the Swiss Comfrey Root and has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects on the skin once applied. It can also help to protect the skin from UV damage.

Vitamins & Mineral Rich

Containing vitamins A, B, and C, along with minerals such as calcium, chromium, magnesium and potassium, Swiss Comfrey Root provides much needed nourishment to the skin, helping to keep it in optimal skin health.
