In Sub-Sahelian Africa, the Desert date is distinguished by its amazing ability to optimise the low nutrition it receives from its environment, building nutritional reserves and remaining healthy for months in the total absence of water. Staying perfectly nourished and hydrated, it produces extraordinarily rich fruit. From this unique model of resistance to the most extreme conditions of drought, Klorane Laboratories have extracted the very best of its proteins and fatty acids, to give silkiness and strength to even the most damaged hair.
A responsible range for sustainable beauty
When we created our range with Desert date, we sought to rise to the challenges of sustainable development. Featuring biodegradable formulas, lightweight recyclable packaging, a fair-trade plant supply chain, this ecologically responsible range also complements the ambitious Great Green Wall.
The Desert date… At the heart of the Great Green Wall
In 20 years, half of the trees growing in some parts of the Sahel zone have disappeared. The lack of rainfall after serious droughts plus human impact have wreaked havoc on the ecological balance of the area and the lives of the local population. To fight this desertification, we have planted more than 10 000 desert date trees annually as part of the Great Green Wall project. This multi-species plant belt is over 7,000 km long and 15 km wide, crossing 11 African countries from Dakar to Djibouti.
The involvement of the local population ensures the success of the Great Green Wall programme. Men monitor the protected areas and young trees. In return, they can harvest the first products yielded by the land: fodder, fruit, vegetables, gum Arabic. Several allotments have been set aside for women to use, in exchange for the nurturing of tree nurseries. As well as diversifying the inhabitants' diet, fruit and vegetables are sold on local markets, which provides them with a source of income.

Our towns are growing and greenery is gradually disappearing. We should refocus on nature and reinvest in our cities!
This year, for the second Botany for Change awards, Klorane Botanical Foundation invited the community of students studying botany, horticulture, architecture, and landscaping to re-vegetate our cities and lives by designing The City Garden of the Future in the Parc de la Villette, the largest park in Paris and the emblem of urban vegetation. A garden dedicated to the beauty and diversity of the plant world, which showcases the best change-through-botany initiatives.
