For 50 years, Klorane Laboratories has been extracting cornflower water from the Centaurea cyanus L. plant, rich in active ingredients with soothing and decongestant properties. It is blue gold for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers, guaranteeing beauty and safety.
We cultivate Cornflower in Southwest France because of the area’s favorable temperatures and rich soils, in accordance with organic farming principles with AB certification, to help protect nature.
We harvest the flowers when they blossom, not a day too early or a day too late.
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.
