EDELWEISS STEM CELLS
The formulations of the Swiss Alpen Stem products not only contain specific plant extracts, but also Stems Cells from Edelweiss (Leontopodium alpinum) that have a particularly intense anti-oxidant and anti-radicalic action on the skin. In addition, the Edelweiss Stem Cells effectively contribute to protecting the hyaluronic acid and collagen of the skin against degradation caused by environmental hazards.
The roots and buds of all plants contain stem cells, i.e. cells responsible for the growth of the actual plant and renewal of the tissues. They are totipotent stem cells capable of differentiating themselves until regenerating the whole plant. Thanks to sophisticated biotechnologies, Labo can use plant stem cells, in particular Edelweiss stem cells, obtained through in-vitro cell cultivations under extremely controlled conditions.
The Edelweiss stem cells, unlike mature plant cells, contain specific substances with antioxidant and protective biological properties.
