cottonwood is a member of the salix family (the latin name for willow) and their buds and bark are rich in salicin.
topical application of salicin significantly influences gene expression profiles associated with various biological processes involving skin structure, skin hydration, pigmentation and cellular differentiation. based on the findings from this experiment, salicin was identified as a key ingredient that may regulate functional 'youth gene clusters' to reflect a more youthful gene expression profile by increasing the expression of genes responsible for youthful skin and decreasing the expression of genes responsible for the appearance of aged skin.
so yeah. it's basically magic. backed by science.
