An ultra-protective active ingredient and radiance activator
The ultimately sacred lotus flower (nelumbo nucifera) was dedicated to the Nymphs in Greek mythology. Even today, it remains the symbol of absolute purity in Buddhism and Hinduism. Also considered sacred in China, in Tibet and in India, the lotus flower symbolizes pure and divine beauty.
A Plant with Multiple Virtues **
The sacred lotus flower is an ultra-protective active ingredient and radiance activator.
In India, this ancient flower is used traditionally for its emollient and soothing properties, namely for superficial burns and rashes. Lotus flowers have exceptional soothing, astringent, and refreshing virtues and are used to treat skin imperfections.
Lotus Flower Extract
The flower extract used by SO’BiO étic® is loaded with phenolic compounds and carbohydrates, making it an excellent anti-imperfection active ingredient.
INNOVATION: SO’BiO étic® has patented the lotus, hamamelis and zinc complex found in our “Perfect Skin” line. This complex hydrates the skin, limits sebum production and tightens the pores, while smoothing and evening out the complexion.
SO’BiO étic® Lotus Flower
The SO’BiO étic® Research & Development Department identified an organically-farmed lotus flower in Laos, in a village not far from Ventiane. The flowers are mainly harvested during the months of May and June. The flower must be harvested when it is young because it wilts very quickly. It is then dried in accordance with traditional methods.
In this remote village, lotus flower farming allows the population to be employed, and it reduces migration towards the cities and the resulting population loss in rural areas.
