This cosmetic contains an active ingredient derived from 2 plants of African origin, Resurrection plant, Myrothamnus flabellifolia and Tamarind, Tamarindus indica, which are combined for a total effect on moisturisation and to protect against harsh UV rays and climatic conditions.
Characteristics of this active ingredient include:
Resurrection Plant This plant, found in the deserts of South Africa, uses a miraculous survival system which allows it to avoid death in environments where prolonged periods of drought are followed by sudden and intense rain. During the drought periods, this plant goes into a state of anabiosis (reduced metabolism or hibernation), only to be “resurrected” when provided with moisture. That is, during the drought the plant appears dry and dead and then is quickly re-hydrated and normal cellular functions are restored with the rain. This plant is extremely rich in anti-oxidants and is especially helpful in rectifying oxidative changes caused by UV.
Tamarind This spice is native to tropical Africa and is a popular addition to many foods and beverages. It contains oligosaccharides which are potent immune stimulators and effective moisturisers. This formula has added Vitamin E, a naturally derived super anti-oxidant which also helps to correct damage to the skin caused by UV.
