Madecassoside: a Promising New Skincare Ingredient
While the word Madecassoside might sound unfamiliar, it is a primary active agent in Centella Asiatica which is very commonly used for reducing inflammation and improving skin hydration for people with sensitive skin. As the studies about different properties of Madecassoside continue, the experts say it’s a promising, up and coming, skincare ingredient.
The effects of Madecassoside that are being studied so far include soothing properties, antioxidant benefits, reduction of free radicals, inhibiting inflammation, and improving hydration, wound healing, anti-aging, and inhibition of hyperpigmentation caused by UV.
About The Brand A’PIEU
As the brands’ Korean intro page says, “Witty, Pretty, A’PIEU”, this makeup and skincare line was created to offer a youthful yet elegant approach to beauty.
A’PIEU is a daughter brand of the famous cosmetics brand Missha. While Missha’s products appeal to a more mature demographic, A’PIEU has tried to capture the attention of the youth and cater to the skincare needs of those in their 20s. Unlike other brands that target this demographic, A’PIEU pursues a gentle and natural-looking beauty which has lead to the popularity of their products in other demographics as well.
A’PIEU’s products tend to include mild ingredients making them suitable for sensitive skin.
The brand was established in 2008 with online stores and in 2011 they began opening brick and mortar shops. Following the success of the brand within Korea, they are now making their way into the international market.

According to A’PIEU the product is also good for reducing wrinkles, whitening the skin, and repairing dryness and damage caused by the environment.
The balm has a texture resembling gel that absorbs really quickly, this does not reduce the product’s moisturizing aspect as it can also make a good final step in the daily routine to lock in moisture.
The A’PIEU Madecassoside Cream is now also available in 120ml tubes which is both larger and relatively more affordable than the original 50ml tubes. This product isn’t recommended for users with oily skin.
