Edelweiss Extract has a positive effect on all oxidative and pro-inflammatory parameters within the skin, it rebalances the skin's stress level and provides vital support for the skin's natural protection power and skin barrier function.
Vitamin C Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate has whitening, collagen synthesis, antioxidant, DNA protection, UV protection properties. it improves percutaneous absorption and stability, promoting collagen synthesis and inhibiting lipid peroxidation. Moreover, it inhibits collagen-degrading enzymes, thus activating collagen synthesis helping to maintain skin elasticity and firmness through stimulating collagen fibres within the skin matrix which act as the skin’s structural support. It is gentle and will not exfoliate or irritate the skin. It is tolerated by even the most sensitive skin types and it helps to hydrate the skin by stimulating it to make its own natural moisturisers called glycosaminoglycans. Also unlike regular Vitamin C, it can be used in high doses and is stable in air and water. It is also able to protect skin cell DNA from mutation caused by UV exposure which in turn increases the viability of the cells.
Rosemary belongs to the Lamiaceae plant family. The plant is common in the whole Mediterranean region and is highly treasured due to its antibacterial effect. Its wound healing, antiseptic and tonifying effects made rosemary oil a popular medicinal plant centuries ago. It also provides antioxidant, radical scavenging, anti-inflammatory, and anti-irritant properties.
Laminaria Saccharina is a brown algae traditionally used in medicine for its anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antioxidant activities. Laminaria Saccharina has soothing and decongestant properties on irritated and inflamed skin. It increases skin moisture levels while improving superficial skin imperfections and helping to regulate the functions of the sebaceous gland. Its hydrophilic properties have the ability to form a protective film on the skin surface to protect the skin from external aggressors making it very suitable sensitive, allergic, irritated, ageing and oily skin types.
Panthenol is the provitamin of D Panthothenic acid (Vitamin B5), which plays a key role in human intermediary metabolism. The deficiency of Vitamin B5 can result in many dermatological disorders. Panthenol works as a deep penetrating moisturiser, it stimulates epithelisation (fibroblast proliferation and normal keratinisation) while providing a wound healing and anti-inflammatory effect
Zinc PCA is a naturally occurring purifying humectant from a vegetal origin. Zinc PCA has astringent, anti-bacterial, anti-irritating and antiseptic properties which help to limit bacterial proliferation, calm skin and help to reinforce skin barrier function. It has a natural moisturising factor (NMF) which helps to keep the structure of the epidermis intact and healthy. It acts as a sebum regulator and is ideal for oily skin, acne, blemishes, and seborrheic dermatitis. Zinc PCA also has anti-ageing properties that reduce the activity of the enzyme collagenase that is responsible for the breakdown of healthy collagen in the skin resulting in increased elasticity.
