Beloved by man and beast

A small annual plant from West Africa, Girdlepod favours light and sandy soils and is also grown as a crop. It is treasured by local populations for its nutritional and medicinal qualities, helping them to supplement the diets of their livestock on the one hand, and to treat skin conditions on the other.

Beauty Benefit

Firming properties

Organic Girdlepod extract promotes collagen synthesis and helps strengthen the skin's firmness connections.

An organic active ingredient

The organic certification of Girdlepod extract meets three criteria: organic farming of the plant, Ecocert-authorized solvent extraction, and approval by an organic certifier of the factory where the processing is carried out.
