The story

The Date palm, the essential plant in the desert

Phoenix dactylifera, Arecaceae

As a tree born in the Mediterranean area, it is a nourishing plant thanks to its high energy fruits and that is used in many different ways - to build constructions, to protect against winds. It is also a decorative element on colums and frescoes, after the conquest of Egypt; and, in the Antiquity, it is planted around Greek temples. Its essential role in the desert ecosystem made it a plant full of symbols: the triumph of soldier in Antiquity, fertility and eternal life in ancient Egypt, paradise in the Koran.

Because skin is day-to-day attacked by sun rays, especially UVB, it is necessary to protect it against their consequences inside skin cells and then to increase their defenses. For a stronger and better protected skin.

How it works ?

Sun Protect Date palm: increasing internal mechanisms of skin cell protection

Sun Protect Date palm acts both on the internal protection of epidermis cell and on the control of their defenses when they are «irradiated» by UVB. First, it provides anti-irritative and immuno-modulative actions, that give and extend a controlled and higher internal cell defense to keratinocytes. Second, it provides a biological protection while preserving their DNA, the element at the root of their operation.

Thanks to those actions, skin resists better external aggressions. It is therefore better protected against cell ageing due to those aggressions.
