Organic Teasel Beneath a prickly exterior, Teasel holds a wealth of revitalizing virtues. Also known as Venus’ Basin, the rainwater that collects within its bowl of leaves was used as a cosmetic in ancient times. Helps minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles caused by a stressful lifestyle. Discover
Glasswort Glasswort can be found along all the shorelines of Europe and every year it produces cylindrical branches that resemble a type of ragged cactus. Beneath this ragged exterior, the plant has developed quite a remarkable biological organization - it is halophilic (it likes salt) and perfectly able to survive in its harsh coastline conditions. It also resists tidal flows by regulating the water level in its cells. Used as a food because of its high content of vitamins and minerals, glasswort also produces an oil which is perfectly suitable for use in skin care. In cosmetics, glasswort extract helps retain water in epidermal cells to provide skin with optimal moisturization. The extract used by Clarins Laboratories is organic. Discover
Cocoa According to Aztec legend, the cocoa tree was a gift to man from the god Quetzalcoatl, in tribute to a princess who was sacrificed for refusing to betray her husband. From the young woman’s blood, the god brought forth a tree whose pods contained a treasure of precious cocoa beans, as bitter as pain, as strong as virtue, and as red as blood. To be made edible, cocoa beans must undergo a process of fermentation, drying, then roasting. Afterwards, they are shelled to extract the kernels which give the cocoa paste. It is from this paste that cocoa butter and cocoa powder are obtained. Cocoa unsaponifiables are extracted from the most precious fraction of the butter. These help to nourish the skin, protect it from dehydration, and prevent skin aging. Cocoa powder extract, rich in polyphenols and OPCs (Oligomeric proanthocyanidins), has soothing and anti-free radical properties. Discover
Quinoa For thousands of years, quinoa has grown on the Andean Altiplano and served as a staple food for its people. The Incas regarded it as a holy plant and worshipped its seeds. It is said that its very high protein and amino acid content played a major role in the spread of the Incan civilization. Abandoned on its high plateaus during the Spanish conquest of South America, quinoa was then rediscovered by westerners in the 1970s and its seeds are now eaten for their exceptional nutritional benefits. Discover
Mango The mango is a tree originating from India which is now grown in all tropical countries, mainly for its fruit. The yellow, fibrous flesh of the fruit has a delicious flavour and its stone contains an edible kernel which is used to make a very rich paste used locally to thicken sauces. By pressing this kernel, one also obtains a plant butter, mango butter. In cosmetics, mango butter, which is rich in fatty acids, protects skin from dehydration, nourishes it and provides suppleness and comfort. Discover
Banana With its slender silhouette and large, hanging leaves, the banana resembles a tree. However, it is actually a giant grass whose only perennial part is an underground stem (rhizome). Native to South-East Asia, the banana is now found in tropical regions throughout the world. There are several varieties of banana grown for their fruit, which is eaten green or ripe. In traditional medicine, green banana is used externally for its healing properties. Discover
Leaf of life Originating from Madagascar, the leaf of life is a fascinating plant - its leaves have the capacity to quickly produce new plants, symbolizing the regenerating power of life, and the plant itself appears green and fleshy even in conditions of extreme drought. Known as a “succulent” plant since it is full of sap, the leaf of life has adapted to hydric stress thanks to molecules which act like sponges to retain water inside the leaves. This action, similar to that of hyaluronic acid - the skin’s “sponge molecule” - served as an inspiration to Clarins Laboratories. They have demonstrated the capacity of leaf of life extract to encourage the synthesis of hyaluronic acid. In cosmetics, leaf of life extract helps boost the skin’s natural hydration mechanisms. The extract used by Clarins Laboratories is organic. Discover
Huang qi Huang qi is a tree from the rainforests of Southeast Asia with a deeply furrowed brown-black trunk, which can reach 110 ft in height.

When combined with sunflower phospholipids, it helps optimize the bioavailability of caffeine, thus promoting fat elimination. Discover
Turmeric Well-known for its golden-yellow powder that adds vibrant color to curry dishes around the world, turmeric is a plant native to Southeast Asia and is cultivated across the Asian continent. Its thick underground stem –the rhizome– is dried and ground to produce this age-old, multi-use powder. A sacred spice to Hindus, who use it in their religious ceremonies, turmeric has a bitter, peppery, and slightly spicy taste. Reputed for its use as a dye for clothing and food, turmeric also possesses therapeutic benefits. It was prescribed in traditional Indian and Chinese medicine to treat digestive and inflammatory disorders, and studies carried out in recent decades have revealed that it contains powerful antioxidants. In cosmetics, turmeric extract helps preserve cellular communication. Discover
Goji The fruit of a shrub that mainly grows in southern China, goji berries are esteemed for their sweet, slightly tangy taste. In Chinese medicine, they were prescribed to boost the immune system and improve eyesight, but also to stimulate circulation and protect the liver. Studies carried out on goji berries have shown that, in addition to their richness in immunostimulatory polysaccharides, they possess an exceptional antioxidant value. Discover
Orthosiphon Native to Southeast Asia, orthosiphon is characterized by its disproportionately long stamens, which extend from its flowers and give it its nickname “cat’s whiskers.” It is also known as “Java tea,” and has been used for centuries in infusions to provide relief for kidney diseases.

Present in Europe since the 16th century, it was nicknamed the “American Pear.” Exceptionally rich in vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, and proteins, it is an almost perfectly balanced nutritional element. Over the years, it has also been used as a remedy for migraines, respiratory disorders, and skin diseases. In cosmetics, avocado unsaponifiables (the most precious part of the oil) promote skin regeneration and maintain its suppleness. Avocado peptides help purify and plump up the skin, while organic avocado oil leaves it soft and supple. Discover

Mary’s thistle Originating from the Mediterranean region, Mary’s thistle is a plant that favors dry, sun-drenched soils and, despite its thorny, rather uninviting look, has a benevolent nature. The legend behind its white-speckled leaves tells the story of Mary who, fleeing from Egypt to escape persecution, hid behind a bush of Mary’s thistle to suckle the baby Jesus. A few drops of her milk fell onto the leaves, and since that moment, the plant’s leaves have been marbled white. Since antiquity, the plant has been used to comfort and relieve liver problems. Traditionally, the oil extracted from its seeds, which is rich in essential fatty acids – in particular omega 6 – is used to nourish and comfort the skin. The Mary’s thistle oil used by Clarins Laboratories is organic. Discover

It is the national flower of Cuba where it is called “flor de mariposa” and used in bridal bouquets. In cosmetics, ginger lily extract is used for its anti-ageing properties – it is an antioxidant and also stimulates the synthesis of collagen. Discover
Edelweiss According to legend, edelweiss was born from a star that came down to Earth to experience love. For defying the laws of the kingdom of the stars, it was transformed into a modest flower destined to live on the top of remote summits. Originating from Siberia, edelweiss then migrated towards Europe during the ice ages of the Quaternary period. During the 19th century, it became the symbol of the Alps. The flower, found at altitudes of 4,900-9,800 ft., has pretty little yellow flower heads surrounded by downy white petals in a double star formation. This down protects the edelweiss from desiccation and ultraviolet radiation. In cosmetics, edelweiss extract is recognized for its antioxidant activity.

Cellular communication: the language of youth.
When the skin is young
The cells communicate with each other: they emit and receive messages from other cells and from their environment. This effective communication allows for the optimal performance of 5 vital functions, which are key to the skin’s youth and beauty.
With age and aggressors
Since the cells can’t “hear” as well, their ability to respond becomes diminished. Communication between the cells is impaired.
The 5 vital functions are disrupted and signs of ageing appear.
Clarins has decoded the language of youth: [EXPRESSION + LISTENING]
A cocktail of [20+1] plant extracts
At the heart of Double Serum are [20+1] powerful plant extracts to optimize the [EXPRESSION + LISTENING] abilities of the cell language and to stimulate the skin’s 5 vital functions.
