Persian Silk Tree
Sleeping tree, pink silk tree
Iran (Persia), eastern China
Originally native to Iran (Persia) and eastern China, the Persian silk tree can now be found throughout the temperate regions of the world. It is the silky pink or white flowers that give the tree its name. It is also called Sleeping Tree, because the two sides of its leaves close together during the night as if the tree were sleeping.
The Persian silk tree with its exotic flowers and leaves is widely planted as an ornamental plant in parks and gardens.
The Persian silk tree extract offers some impressive cosmetic benefits. It boosts cell energy, revitalizes tired skin, supports the skin’s natural detoxification process and tightens weak contours – for a fresh and smooth complexion.
