Armeria maritima is a seaside plant with pink flowers. Armeria comes from the word “armor” in Celtic and means “seaside”. It is found on the coasts of the English Channel and the Atlantic (Vendée and Brittany regions of France).
Scientists at PHYTOMER have discovered that Armeria maritima is capable of living on industrial wastelands containing high levels of heavy metals; demonstrating its exceptional ability to eliminate soil pollution.
Following the principle of marine biomimicry, scientists at PHYTOMER use Armeria maritima extract as a purifying facial treatment and to protect the skin against pollution and cigarette smoke.
