Edelweiss Extract is an organic, high-purity extract from the Swiss alpine flower, Edelweiss that stimulates key proteins responsible for providing optimum protection and moisturization of the skin. It enables the skin to preserve its natural balance and noticeably reduces skin sensitivity for an ultimate skin comfort. This extract is a potent antioxidant that aids in improving the appearance of aged and/or irritated skin. It provides antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits for skin and inhibits enzymes in skin that break down its support structure. In summary: it protects and soothes.
