Cultured cell extract of the very rare Uttwiler Spätlauber apple breed — only 20 trees exist in the world. This miraculous apple resists decomposition, staying fresh even up to 4 months after being picked. It nourishes epidermal stem cells, helping to revitalize depleted cells and support cell function.
This evergreen is native to harsh environments in the European Alps at elevations of 2,000m above sea level. It is included to nourish skin stem cells and help reduce or repair damage caused by environmental stressors like UV radiation and dehydration.
Cultured from the rare Vitis grape grown in Burgundy, France, this extract helps repair UV damage and enhances the vitality of epidermal stem cells.
Commonly called the "butterfly bush" in English-speaking countries, this fragrant flowering plant produces abundant nectar. More importantly, it has proven a valuable skin care ingredient due to its anti-aging benefits. The fast-growing shrub is shown to help protect skin from photo damage, oxidative stress, and UV radiation as it enhances immunity.
This rare but hardy plant has thrived in the Swiss Alps since the Ice Age. Applied topically, it vitalizes skin at the cellular level and helps strengthen dermal stem cell immunity against UV rays.
Originating in Old World Europe, comfrey has been cultivated as a medicinal herb for centuries. As a cosmetic ingredient, it helps stimulate the replication of epidermal stem cells and promotes skin turnover.
This alpine plant has adapted to extreme conditions at elevations of 2000m above sea level and temperatures in the -30°C range, including the Alps and the Pyrenees mountains. It is prized as a skin care ingredient that helps protect and rejuvenate skin.
Native to Morocco, this rare plant is remarkably resilient, able to thrive in drought conditions for years. In skin care, it revitalizes dermal stem cell function and promotes skin resilience and smoothness.
The unique benefits of 8 stem cells are encapsulated in liposomes to facilitate delivery to deeper layers of skin. Liposomes are microcapsules wrapped in sacs of phospholipid molecules, identical to human skin membrane.
Ingredients are infused between the layers of these multi-layered capsules. Upon application, naturally occurring skin enzymes melt the capsules layer by layer, allowing sustained delivery of the ingredients to the deeper dermal layers over an extended period of time.
This technology also assists the delivery of hydrosoluble agents that are otherwise unable to penetrate the cornified outermost layer of skin, and allows difficult-to-blend oil-soluble agents to be fully utilized.
Ingredients are encased in highly affinitive microcapsules of 0.1µ in diameter (1/10,000th of 1mm) to deliver their benefits directly into skin layers.
