Myrothamnus

A remarkable South African Resurrection plant – In the desert-like environment of South Africa, there lives a resilient resurrection plant, Myrothamnus flabellifolia, with unique metabolic properties: in spite of its extreme environment, it can survive long and hot periods of drought in a completely desiccated state and become green again within a few hours of the first drops of rain. This resurrection effect can also be applied to the skin by delivering long term moisturisation, reviving stressed skin and protecting against the effects of dehydration.
