Its longevity and the easyness of its upkeep make it today a species known in many gardens. Nevertheless in China, since the 15th century, it was already cultivated for its culinary and healing properties. The edible flowers, when put on inflammations would be emollient, softening, etc. Thanks to their unique shape, they became a popular pattern on women clothes in India and Tahiti, after having conquered the Chinese painting in the 17th century.

All Fiber Booster Chinese hibiscus acts on the formation of tissues that changes with ageing: this change means a skin with sagged and thinner. Indeed, natural skin ageing is translated by a slowing down of creation of the very material of skin, that happens especially because cells slow down their activities. Then, at the dermis level, the active plant cells will stimulate the synthesis of fibers in the extra cellular matrix: collagens, elastin and proteoglycans. In the same time, they help to balance regeneration of epidermis in terms of production of keratinocyts and specification of cells, a process that decreases with ageing.
Thanks to those actions, the two skin layers can be more densified and globally balanced.
