Madagascan beauty secret

Katafray is a shrub found across Madagascar. Its elegant silhouette is a common sight in the arid forests of The Big Island. Its light-colored wood is as resistant as ebony and widely used in local building. Katafray is an essential ingredient in the local pharmacopoeia and beauty rituals of Madagascan women who apply it as a soothing and hydrating mask.

Beauty Benefits

In cosmetics, this powerful plant extract draws moisture to the skin—and seals it in for hours of multi-level hydration.

DID YOU KNOW?

The Katafray Bark extract used by Clarins Laboratories—developed exclusively for the brand —is obtained through a process that preserves the biodiversity of the tropical forest, and is part of a Fair Trade agreement. A fixed amount of the percentage of Katafray Bark is shared with Clarins' Madagascan partners.
