Eichornia crassipesTHE WATERBORNE
Native to the tropics, the Water Hyacinth thrives in ponds, rivers, canals, lakes and marshes. With its deep green leaves and purple flowers, it's one of the most beautiful freshwater plants; its growth rate is one of the fastest in the plant world—up to 5 meters per day!
The Water Hyacinth is appreciated by botanists for its ability to naturally detoxify and decontaminate waters in which it is immersed.
The Water Hyacinth is not a prominent flower in cosmetics. Only a very particular extraction process allowed us to reveal all its skin-related properties.
NUXE’S R&D Created the sun care range: NUXE SUN
NUXE’S R&D CREATED THE SUN CARE RANGE: NUXE SUN
NUXE’s R&D has selected a water hyacinth extract obtained through oleo-eco-extraction, a natural solvent-free method which allows us to obtain a maximum number of active molecules and thus benefit from all the properties of the plant. Our tests have shown that the Water Hyacinth Oléoactif® product improves the skin’s barrier function, enhancing dehydration-fighting properties.
Before heading to the beach, apply your sunscreen product evenly to cover your whole body and in sufficient quantity to ensure good protection against the sun. Also, think about protecting your hair with a hair care protective oil!

After your day at the beach, wash off all residue (salt, chlorine, sunblock, sand) from your hair and body using an after-sun shower gel and shampoo.
ROUTINE NO. 3
The secret to a beautiful tanned skin? Generously apply your after-sun moisturiser on your face and body after exposure and after the holidays.
