Botanical In The Spotlight – Edelweiss
INCI: Leontopodium alpinium
Edelweiss flower is best known by the song as well as being a symbol of the Swiss Alps, rather than the wealth of skin benefits it has to offer. Its antioxidant properties ensure the flower does not wither or die due to the extreme temperatures it is faced with.
This beautiful flower has strong anti-wrinkle effects and repairs damaged skin whilst it fights against skin inflammation. Edelweiss contains Chlorogenic acid, a potent antioxidant, which has soothing anti-inflammatory effects on the skin. Luteolin helps to maintain the elasticity and skin tone by inhibiting the degradation of hyaluronic acid present within the skin. This flower is also rich in Tannins which scavenge free radicals hence protects the skins own collagen as well as being and excellent soother and emollient.
This botanical is suitable for all skin types and conditions such as mature, prematurely aged, eczema, scars and reactive complexions.
