PLANT EXTRACT CHARACTERISTICS

Peony is a herbaceous plant of the Paeoniaceae family native to Asia that is traditionally used for its soothing virtues. We have chosen to cultivate the Paeonia lactiflora Pall. species for its high paeoniflorin content, a molecule with scientifically proven anti-irritant, soothing and antiradical properties.

BOTANICAL FACT SHEET

Peonies are beautiful ornamental plants native to the Far East, and China in particular. Paeonia lactiflora L., or Chinese peony, has cylindrical, homogenous, straight roots and glabrous, ramified stems that grow to between 24 and 32 inches high. It produces terminal and axillary flowers that are generally solitary, but can be grouped into twos or threes. They are simple with a pleasant fragrance, and measure between 3 and 4 inches in diameter.

TRADITIONAL USES

Peony root was used as far back as the 11th century for its cholagogue properties. Today, it is prescribed in Chinese medicine for blood stasis in the treatment of certain febrile illnesses. It is also frequently used in dermatology for its anti-irritant effect. In cosmetology, antioxidant formulae containing paeoniflorin are used in the fight against skin ageing.
