The story

The Great bougainvillea, a tropical climber with paper flowers

Bougainvillea spectabilis, Nyctaginaceae

Discovered in Brazil and named after the family name of the French explorer and admiral de Bougainville when he made his travel around the world (1766-1769), that climbing plant grows very quickly and spontaneously in South America.
Imported in several tropical areas, it shows a lot of assets to adapt itself to its environement: quite hardy, it grows in the northern hemisphere too and, thanks to its curved thorns, it knows how to develop on several supports, in the sun or in the shadow. First used as ornamental plant, it is little known for medicinal use, whereas many studies reveal several activities, against bacteria or lipids, anti-oxidant...

How it works ?

Splint&Slim Great bougainvillea acts at two levels. At the level of the extra-cellular matrix of dermis, by increasing the synthesis of fibers, proteoglycans, collagens and elastin, fibers that create supporting tissues and their network that supports all skin. At the level of the hypodermis, it boosts the lipolysis by improving the burst of triglycerides stocked by adipocytes and by stopping the fixation of two molecules on their receptors, because that fixation limits lipolysis. Yet the over-stocking of lipides can induce alterations of adipocytes, like inflammation.

Thanks to those actions, skin gets back a balanced composition and can better fulfill its essential functions, like protecting and regulating body temperature.
