Land plants are adapted to live in very different environments, ranging from the humid tropical climate to the extreme temperatures of the deserts, the poles and high mountains. In order to achieve this adaptation, each species developed different strategies that enabled their survival.

As part of this evolution, certain plants produce molecules to store water and energy, as well as molecules to defend them against their natural enemies or from environmental stress.

ASSESSA selected some of these extraordinary plants as a source of unique molecules with high biological activity and cosmetics for the protection, care and treatment of skin and hair.
