Shea The Shea tree is a magical tree, especially for women, and it is known as the "King of the Savannah" in Africa. It is a sacred tree, which should never be cut down or damaged. Women are considered its guardians and collect the large nuts that yield the butter for which the tree is so famous. Its cosmetic virtues date back to Antiquity; Shea Butter is exceptionally rich in unsaponifiables, the most precious part of antioxidant-rich vegetable oils. Discover
Centella asiatica Centella Asiatica grows on the marshy soils of South East Asia, Australia and Africa. Its slender, creeping stems produce small umbrella-shaped bunches of flowers. Commonly known as "tiger grass" because large cats like to roll in its leaves to soothe their wounds, it is traditionally used to treat dermatological infections, heal wounds and for epilepsy and memory loss. In cosmetics, research on Centella Asiatica has led to the isolation of several active substances. Clarins Laboratories were particularly interested in one of these molecules, Asiaticoside, which is capable of soothing irritation, stimulating collagen synthesis and protecting skin against ageing.

Parsley Parsley is a biennial plant cultivated throughout the world as a culinary herb. Despite its beneficial effects, Parsley is much-prized by "wizards" and is one of the gardener's dreads. Legend says that anyone who plants parsley seeds is likely to die before the year is out. In the south of France, it is still thought if a pregnant woman touches parsley the plant will die. Setting aside these age-old beliefs, Parsley has a taste and scent that conceals important benefits for a healthy balance of minerals and vitamins in the body. It is amazingly rich in vitamins C and A, as well as iron, calcium and magnesium. In cosmetology, Parsley is often utilized to tone the skin and lighten skin colouring. Discover
Kudzu This exotic plant originates from China and Japan. Commonly called the « kudzu vine », it produces clinging vine-like shoots. It was introduced last century to the United States for its wonderful purple flowers, as a rich source of nutrients for the soil and its ability to slow down erosion with roots which can reach up to two metres in length. The pueraria is used in Asian cooking as a starch to thicken dishes. Above all, it has an incredible rate of growth, over 300m a year, which explains its Latin name of Pueraria lobata, meaning « always young ». The plant's vigorous growth greatly interested Clarins Research team and tests demonstrated that the roots contained exceptional anti-ageing properties. In particular they are a rich source of isoflavones, which boost the activity of cells deprived of hormonal influences. As a result, the skin's capacity to retain water is restored, cell renewal is accelerated and the synthesis of collagen is increased. The skin becomes firmer and the appearance of wrinkles is reduced. Discover
