The story

The Apple tree, the tree with a fruit full of symbols

Malus domestica, Rosaceae

Today the apple tree is one of the fruit trees the most cultivated, from Europe to China and in the USA, for its fruits with a slightly acid flesh, that are used for many drinks and desserts. Born in Asia Minor, that tree can be 10 meters high; now it exists in thousand different cultivars, and produces edible fruits only after 10 years, but it knows how to adapt itself to many soils. In Western countries, it has been looked for its medicinal properties, as it is been told as a tonic, a diuretic, fighting against fever, etc.). In the Greek mythology, the apple was the symbol of beauty and unhappiness in Pâris’ judgement and immortality for those in the garden of Hesperides.

Because skin changes when we gain weight, it is necessary to balance its composition again.To get a skin firmer, finer, looking smoother.

How it works ?

Soothing Light Apple tree acts at two levels of the inflammatory system, the one of inflammation mediators, responsible for irritations, and the other of vasodilators, responsible for redness. Its part consists in reducing the release of those components that are scattered in skin. Most of them can be found at the level of the epidermis or dermis concerning blood vessels.

Thanks to those different actions, skin gets back a sensibility more consonant with its environment and keeps on fighting external aggressions.
