Revalorization of medicinal plants

Although well known worldwide, Madagascar's medicinal plants still deserve to be revalued. This initiative helps to share with locals and foreigners how the big island has real floristic treasures.

14000 species of plants with miraculous virtues

As a living sanctuary where several plant species live, Madagascar is no longer an unknown in terms of medicinal plants. The big island has at least 14,000 species, some of which are endemic. The population is used to turning to traditional medicine that values the use of these plants to cure various diseases. International researchers have recognized the healing power of these Malagasy plants. That's why they need to be put back in value so that everyone can find which plant will be adapted to this or that case.

Rich flora benefiting many areas

The medicinal plants found in Madagascar do not only concern the medical field, they are also used for other purposes. For years, the world of ornamental creation, cosmetics and pharmacology swear by these plants. This revaluation project is supported by an NGO named « Jardins du Monde ». Its role is to list Malagasy medicinal plants while proposing some species useful for cosmetics. Indeed, after medicine, cosmetics is the second sector that finds a lot of interest in the exploitation of these plants.

A good project targeting major cosmetic brands

« Jardins du Monde » collaborate with world-renowned cosmetic claws. The Clarins brand is one of them. Some formulas made by the Clarins laboratory contain high quality flower essences from Malagasy medicinal plants. His partnership with the « Jardins du Monde » will allow him to know other plants even more virtuous than those already used. For years, the plant « kalanchoé officinal bio » planted north of the big island is one of the favorites of Clarins. This vegetation has healing, moisturizing and revitalizing properties for the skin. The women of the north of Madagascar already know it because they have the custom to use this plant as an infusion.
