Glycoin® natural

Protective and re-activating substance of the Resurrection plant Myrothamnus flabellifolia, which can be found in the deserts of southern Africa. Resurrection plants have the unique and fascinating ability to survive for long periods without a single drop of water. During this time, the resurrection plant totally desiccates. Then the leaves of the plant shrink, appearing withered and dead. But appearances are deceptive; every time, as soon as the rains start, the plant comes back to life. It miraculously re-greens within a few hours.
