Natural habitat of salicornia

Locks in moisture

Salicornia can be found all along the shorelines of Europe, and every year it produces cylindrical branches that resemble a type of ragged cactus. Beneath its exterior, the plant has developed a remarkable biological organization. It is halophilic ("salt-loving") and able to survive harsh coastal conditions. It also resists tidal flows by regulating the water level within its cells. Used as a food for its high content of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, Salicornia also produces an oil that is ideal for use in moisturizers.
