Resurrection Plant: The Exotic Mexican Plant That Provides Intense Hydration

Correct hydration of the skin is essential to keep it smooth, young, fresh and healthy. The extract of the ‘Rose of Jericho’ (Resurrection Plant – Selaginella Lepidophylla) represents an innovative moisturizing component of natural origin.

Native to the desert of Chihuahua, Mexico; the Rose of Jericho stands out for its amazing ability to resist desiccation for long periods of time to then fully recover when exposed to high levels of humidity. This is thanks to its complex of enzymes and response to mechanical and oxidative stress.

Its moisture retention system is composed of polysaccharides, enzymes, stress response proteins and polyphenols that act in synergy to protect and repair. During rehydration, polysaccharides mobilize water through the system and increase the rate of cellular metabolism to accelerate the repair process.

Advances in the cultivation of plant tissues have allowed sustainable isolation of the moisture retention complex of the plant, to obtain an extract for cosmetic use that provides intense long-term hydration and prolonged softness to the skin. Efficacy studies show multiple benefits: it promotes moisture retention, antioxidant action, protects, repairs and improves skin tone.

Therapy & Essence Laboratories, has formulated the hydrating facial line HYDRASKIN and its range of body creams, with this innovative extract that provides intense hydration, antioxidant and soothing effects, anti-aging action and improves the elasticity of the skin.
