Natural, organic bioactive expert in self-protection

ALPAFLOR® EDELWEISS CB is a Leontopodium alpinum ‘Helvetia’ extract cultivated between 1000m and 1500m altitude in the Swiss Alps, ensuring a maximum content of active compounds such as leontopodic acid. There it has to contend with extremes of temperature, making Edelweiss an expert in self-protection. It supports the skin’s crucial protective barrier, enhancing its resistance to external stress factors and providing an ultimate skin sensation. This product is preservative-free and based on vegetal glycerin. It is COSMOS, NATRUE organic certified and Fair Trade certified according to the Fair For Life standard.

Mode of Action

ALPAFLOR® EDELWEISS CB stimulates key proteins responsible for providing maximum protection and moisturization of the skin. Particularly, levels of transglutaminase 1 and involucrin are increased to reinforce the cornified envelopes. Gene expression studies have demonstrated the multi-target activity of ALPAFLOR® EDELWEISS CB on several levels. In particular loricrin, involucrin, filaggrin, small proline-rich proteins (SPRRs), keratin 1, and keratin 10 gene expression are significantly up regulated. Furthermore, ALPAFLOR® EDELWEISS CB reduces AGEs, glycated collagen IV and detoxifies and repairs after glycation stress in vitro. More over it strongly and significantly boosts Collagen I and V in vitro.
