Location: FranceThe Silver Birch is a tall tree with smooth, white-coloured bark. The triangular-shaped leaves are often used in phytotherapy and contain flavenoids with diuretic and depurative properties for treating water retention. Recent scientific research has brought to light an active substance, betulinic acid, obtained from Birch bark to help protect the skin from serious changes caused by sun exposure.
