Myrothamnus flabellifolia, commonly known as the Resurrection Plant, is capable of inhabiting extremely inhospitable habitats due to its ability to exist for years in an air-dried, quiescent state. Upon the provision of water, it can resume metabolic processes within a few hours.
Resurrection plants are a source of several compounds with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-carcinogenic properties. They produce phenolic compounds (flavonoids), terpenoids, and biflavonoids such as robustaflavone that prevent free radical damage and act as natural anti-aging skin actives.
Resurrection plant extract helps turn dry skin into highly moisturised, radiant softness, providing a more youthful appearance and a smooth tactile feel.
