Beloved by man and beast

A small annual plant from West Africa, Mitracarpus favours light and sandy soils and is also grown as a crop. It is treasured by local populations for its nutritional and medicinal qualities, helping them to supplement the diets of their livestock on the one hand, and to treat skin conditions on the other.

Cosmetic effectiveness

Firmness connections

In cosmetics, organic Mitracarpus extract promotes collagen synthesis and helps strengthen the skin's firmness connections.

An organic active ingredient

The organic certification of Mitracarpus extract meets three criteria: organic farming of the plant, Ecocert-authorised solvent extraction, and approval by an organic certifier of the factory where the processing is carried out.
