Buckbean is an active agent that offers a firming and toning action and is well-known in cosmetics. Its antioxidant molecules, such as polyphenols and flavonoids, as well as vitamin C increase its anti-ageing action.


Originally from Europe, buckbean particularly enjoys a sunny position but likes to have its roots in water. This semi-aquatic plant holds many medicinal properties in its leaves that were already known in Antiquity, but which have been rediscovered over the past few centuries.
