Plant Genius : Hydration

Our botanists and phyto-analysts have found the best plant-based response to meet the challenge of skin hydration. After extensive research, they turned their attention to Edulis, a plant that contains a powerful moisturizing extract: cellular water.

An agronomic and phyto-analytical study allowed us to determine the best harvesting period and the best extraction process. Cuttings are made in March and, after only 6 months of growth in the greenhouse, the tender shoots of the plant, full of cellular water, are harvested just before flowering.

The ultra-fresh plant then goes directly onto the exclusive and patented extraction stage, solvent-free, in order to preserve the environment and the effectiveness of this extract. Thanks to a natural process in 5 steps (shredding, pressing, decanting, clarification and stabilization), cellular water.

The Origin of Our Plant

Originally from South Africa, this plant is now present on the coasts of many regions of the world. Yves Rocher’s plant biology laboratories chose, in 2012, to grow Edulis where the Brand was created, at La Gacilly in Brittany.

It is grown in greenhouses, to control the growing and propagation conditions. Our organic and sustainable farming model has allowed us to obtain UEBT certification for Edulis and all the rest of the ingredients we grow at La Gacilly.

As a participant in the preservation of the biodiversity and ecosystems of Brittany, we work in close collaboration with the National Botanical Conservatory of Brest. In 2017, we supported a study establishing an inventory of Edulis in Brittany: distribution, ecology and methods of controlling its spread at the expense of local flora. In addition, the Yves Rocher Botanical Gardenin La Gacilly is home to approximately 20 threatened or endangered plant species from Brittany, France and around the world.
