Found commonly in the tropics, Waltheria satisfies its need to grow by spreading over sandy or rocky areas or in places where ground soil has been damaged. Its leaves are covered in fine hairs that help prevent evaporation. Fascinated by the plant's stubborn desire to grow in desolate areas, local populations throughout history also discovered its antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, anti-asthmatic and pain relief benefits. Clarins has selected Waltheria titrated to 95 % of tiliroside, a molecule with soothing and anti-ageing benefits. By combining titrated Waltheria with a tripeptide, Clarins Research has formulated an innovative and patented complex that delivers a wide range of anti-ageing skin care benefits.
