Kiwi fruit The kiwi is an Asian shrub that has been cultivated in France since the Seventies. It was the New Zealanders who named it after their national bird. The oblong fruit has slightly acid green flesh and contains an extraordinary number of vitamins. Also known as the fruit of 7 vitamins, it is the richest in vitamins C & E and possesses the highest concentration of nutrients.
Aloe vera Widely cultivated in tropical regions, the use of aloe vera can be dated back to Ancient Egypt. It is said that Cleopatra attributed the secret of her legendary beauty to the plant. Since then, research carried out on the gel obtained from the heart of the aloe leaf has revealed the presence of softening, moisturizing and regenerating compounds. In the medical field, aloe is used externally to stimulate the circulation and encourage healing.
Senna A bush native to the tropical regions of America, senna blossoms in full sunlight with bright yellow clusters of flowers. The leaves are well-known in traditional medicine for effective treatment of various skin ailments. When analyzing the leaves, which are rich in phenolic acids, flavonoids and tannins, Clarins Cell Biology Laboratory revealed their capacity to protect cell DNA from the harmful effects of the sun.
Olive Tree The olive tree is a native of the Mediterranean countries and has been used for a long time for its therapeutic properties. The olive is a sacred tree. For many years the oil and leaves were used to make a cream for the athletes and wrestlers of ancient Greece and Rome. The leaves have a healing and toning action on the skin that is widely used in cosmetics. Vegetal perhydrosqualene is derived from the olive. Extremely moisturizing, it is similar to the lipids in the skin.
Plane Tree In Greek, «platanos » means big, a characteristic that the Plane tree develops easily in favorable conditions. There is a Plane tree in Kos, Greece that is 2000 years old and whose trunk has a circumference of 14 meters. Could its imposing size and surprising resistance be due to its bark's specific revitalizing process? When mature, the bark transforms into large scales called rhytidomes, which then slough off to reveal a soft, smooth new bark. It is this vegetal "molting" that inspired the idea in Greek mythology to choose the Plane tree as the symbol of revitalization. This particularity also intrigued scientists. During their research, they discovered betulinic acid in the tree's bark. Already used in Clarins sun care products for its capacity to remove deficient cells and maintain optimal cellular integrity, betulinic acid is also capable of slowing down the proliferation of cells where hair begins its growth.
Baobab According to legend, God pulled the baobab out of Heaven and replanted it on Earth upside down because it was too proud... And indeed the tree does appear « upside down » with its large, swollen trunk topped by gnarled branches that resemble enormous roots. The baobab is an emblematic tree of sub-saharan Africa and like the shea, is also known as the « tree of life ». It stands out for its enormous size, incredible lifespan (some claim around 5,000 years) and multiple uses and benefits.
