Bissap (Hibiscus sabdariffa) is a herbaceous plant, known in French as Guineaseed because it is native to West Africa.

In Senegal, it is cultivated during the rainy season, once a year. It is a very widespread crop, on large areas but also in backyards. It is the only species of Hibiscus which combines the useful with the pleasant: the young leaves of the Guinea Sorrel are eaten in salads or cooked like spinach, the flowers in cold infusion and the seed oil in cosmetic care.

When the flowers fall, they give way to a calyx which turns a beautiful bright red color. These chalices are harvested by hand and dried. Then used in infusions or in jams, they have a high content of vitamin C, calcium, niacin and iron, with a unique and delicious taste. The seeds contained in the calyces are carefully collected to extract the oil, which has exceptional cosmetic qualities.
