- White Tea White Tea is a rare, much sought after plant grown in China in the Fujian mountains. Drinking it was once considered a route to immortality and it gets its name from its silvery-white leaf buds. These are picked from the plant during the first days of spring. It is one of the rarest, most expensive teas in the world for several reasons: the harvest sometimes lasts just two days, the buds must be picked by hand, the production is on a very small scale and the manufacturing process is difficult.
- Katafray The Katafray is a tree found across Madagascar, and its elegant silhouette is a common sight in the arid forests of the south and west of the Grande Ile. Its light-coloured wood is as resistant as ebony and widely used in local building. In traditional Madagascan medicine, a drink prepared from the bark is reputed to have tonic and febrifuge benefits and its essential oil is known for its fortifying and soothing actions.
- Alpine Willow Herb This plant can be found growing in glaciers, among the piles of stones and rocks known as "moraine". In order to grow and multiply in this mineral environment, Alpine Willow Herb has developed some very special features: powerful underground roots capable of capturing water hidden deep in the rocks, and the ability to reproduce itself by growing shoots – like clones of itself – which allow it to colonize such an inhospitable region. Its bright pink flowers are a splash of colour in this stony universe. The plant hasmedicinal properties and is used to treat digestive problems, burns and skin irritation. In cosmetics, in addition to a recognized soothing action, Clarins Research has revealed its capacity to slow the development of the enzyme responsible for production of sebum.
- Succory Dock-Cress Succory Dock-Cress is a widespread annual plant which flowers from June to September and prefers semi-shade conditions. It is an easy-growing plant which can even be found growing beside motorways. It has long been used to heal scabs and soothe irritation caused by breast-feeding (hence its name of Nipplewort). It was then forgotten for a time until Clarins Laboratories revealed its anti-pollution properties.
- Pomegranate The Pomegranate originated in Iran where it was first cultivated around 5,000 years ago and very early on in history became a favourite fruit of travelers. Easy to transport, it was ideal for quenching the thirst on long journeys thanks to its tough skin, or pericarp, which perfectly preserves the freshness of its 800 or so juicy seeds. It soon spread into Asia, then all round the Mediterranean basinwhere it became the symbol of fertility and love. Today, scientists have become interested in the Pomegranate for its antioxidant properties and their role in the prevention of blood circulation problems. In cosmetics, its tannin-rich pericarp is recognized for its ability to tighten pores andmatify the skin.
- Rhodiola Rosea Rhodiola rosea is a plant from the Arctic regions which is very resistant to extreme temperatures (- 45°C) and is used by local communities for its many benefits. The Vikings owed their legendary strength to this plant and the Inuits of Canada and Alaska use it to heal burns, gastric problems and tuberculosis. Studies have demonstrated its exceptional capacity to help the human body adapt to different environmental and psychological stress factors. Present in Clarins Anti-Pollution Complex, rhodiola extract provides significant protection against all biological stresses.
- Arctic Cloudberry A small, discreet plant which grows in the frozen peat bogs of the northern forests. For a long time, it was an important part of the diet of local populations: in such a poor farming area, it was one of the only sources of Vitamin C. The oil extracted from the pips of the Arctic Cloudberry is used in Clarins skin care products. Thanks to the presence of essential fatty acids and vitamins, it soothes and regenerates the skin, while hydrating and protecting it fromfree radicals.
- Sorbier In times gone by, the sorbier tree was considered sacred and believed to chase away evil spirits and bring happiness to lovers. Its pear-shaped fruit has a pungent, acid flavour and is commonly used in a decoction for its fortifying and veinotonic properties. Its very dense wood is popular with both carpenters and cabinet makers.
- Red algae Chondrus crispus belongs to the family of red algae and grows on the North Atlantic coast. Widely used in the food and cosmetic industries for its stabilizing properties, it also has medicinal benefits due to a high content of vitamins, minerals and amino acids with anti-rheumatic, remineralizing and toning actions. Clarins Laboratories became interested in chondrus crispus because of the presence of two substances, floridoside and taurine, which it synthesizes to survive in extreme conditions (intense cold, reduced light). Energy-giving and protective components also plump the skin by rehydrating skin cells.
- Inca peanut Plukentia volubilis is a creeper plant native to the Peruvian Andes. It is commonly known as Inca peanut because the seeds in its fruit were traditionally eaten by the people of the Andes for their stimulating and fortifying benefits. The oil from the seeds was also used in soothing and relaxing massages. Recent research has revealed that Inca peanut oil is the only vegetable oil to contain such high quantities of the two essential fatty acids omega 3 and omega 6.
