Edelweiss Meristem Concentrate
Origin: Plant and Biotech
INCI: Leontopdium Alpinum Meristem Cell Culture
One of nature’s amazing multi-taskers. Edelweiss (Leontopodium alpinum), sometimes known as “Queen of the Mountain”, is an herbaceous plant that grows on mountain ranges from the Alps to the Himalayas. As the plant has evolved, it has developed a multitude of natural protective defences in order to survive the extreme climates in which it grows. It is these properties that scientists have been able to harness in the Meristem Concentrate.
Edelweiss Meristem Concentrate is one of the most powerful anti-oxidants, 3 x more powerful than Vitamin C or Resveratrol. It offers a high level of natural photo-protection from harmful UVB and UVA rays as well as protection from skin irritations, making it a fantastic ingredient for those with sensitive skins. In addition, Edelweiss Meristem Concentrate is known to activate Sirtuins (proteins proven to promote cell longevity) and can positively influence cell regeneration for a healthier, firmer, smoother, more luminous skin.
Why It's Pure
The Edelweiss plant is known as an extremophile plant, and is evolutionarily adapted to thrive in extreme physical conditions, such as subfreezing cold and intense UV exposure.
Why It's Tech
The plasma from meristem cells is removed in sterile laboratory conditions, without the use of solvents or chemicals which would harm the actives.
Why It's Beauty
Edelweiss Meristem Concentrate has been shown in clinical studies to improve skin luminosity and clarity by +325%.
