The story

The Red-flowered silk cotton tree, a key tree in Africa

Bombax costatum, Bombacaceae

Big tree from the Western and centre of Africa, it can be 25 metres high, its fruit gives kapok, a white vegetal fibre, which looks like cotton. It can well resist dryness and fires in savannah, but it suffers now from late regeneration in particular zones (Burkina Faso) because of the aridity of soil and of the anthropic pression. Recognized as essential to men and animals, many parts of this tree are used in food and medicinal purposes; it is also used as fodder for cattle.

Because skin is continually aggressed by sun rays, it is necessary to protect it as a global way. To get a skin with a better resistance to fight external aggressions.

How it works ?

Whole Protection Red-flowered silk cotton tree is dedicated to give skin means to protect itself by supplying a biological protection efficient till the heart of skin cells, against two natural sources of aggressions, UVA and UVB. First with an action of protection at two levels, at a global level by contributing to release defense proteins and, at a more precise level, by a protection of the DNA of epidermis cells. Then, it is efficient on irritation phenomena by limiting the release of the messengers of inflammation - they accentuate the sensation of irritation.

Thanks to those combinated actions, skin is protected longer and keeps its supply of defenses.
