Sunflower The name "Helianthus" from the Greek "helios" (sun) and "anthos" (flower), is derived from a legend of Greek mythology. In the myth, a young mortal falls in love with the god Helios and dies from love by constantly watching him. Moved by her plight, Helios turns her into a plant whose flower head follows the movement of the sun throughout the day. In cosmetics, sunflower is used in many ways. The oil and wax from the seeds have moisturising and protective benefits. The oil cake, a product obtained from the seeds after extraction of the oil, has soothing properties. Finally, auxins, substances present in the sunflower stem, promote firmness and flexibility and have recognised firming and toning actions. Discover
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. Discover
Sweet Marjoram Marjoram is a plant with small, white flowers that grow in bunches. The Greeks knew the plant well and took it as the symbol of honour and love. Legend recounts how Venus washed and healed Aeneus' wounds using this plant. It was also valued, even then, as much for culinary as medicinal purposes, and we find it mentioned in recipes left to us by Apicius. Discover
Avocado Originally from tropical America, the fruit of the Avocado tree was considered sacred by the Aztecs. Present in the South American Indian diet since the beginning of time, it was introduced to the Western world in the 16th century and nicknamed "the American Pear". Exceptionally rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins and essential fatty acids, it is an almost perfectly balanced nutritional element. Over the years, it has also been used as a remedy for migraine, respiratory disorders and skin disease. Clarins Laboratories use the most precious part of its oil, the unsaponifiables of Avocado, for their moisturizing, repairing and antioxidant qualities. Avocado oil is also remarkable for its ability to increase collagen synthesis. Discover
