A major component of Edelweiss flower, Leotopodic acid, is a highly potent antioxidant that is not found anywhere else in nature. As Edelweiss blooms evolved to survive the harsh climate where they grows, it developed compounds to protect itself—these same compounds help protect our skin too. Edelweiss benefits the skin in 3 major needs:

• 2005 study confirmed Leontopodic acid supports antioxidant activity and also helps protect DNA from harmful changes.
• 2009 Researchers found that Leontopodic acid protected cells against fungal toxins while helping to encourage detoxification of those toxins.

Vitamin B5

Hydration: Panthenol is a natural humectant, making it a good hydrating ingredient. It provides the skin a soft and smooth appearance by penetrating into the lower skin layers for absorption by skin cells.
Anti-Aging: Panthenol soothes, softens and moisturizes the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Its exfoliating properties fight free radicals and promote new skin cells, revealing the youthful skin underneath. Panthenol also offers plumping and moisturizing effects that penetrate the upper layer of the skin’s surface. When combined with the moisture-retaining strength of Hyaluronic Acid, this has the effect of “filling out” the area to which it is topically applied, naturally plumping the skin, erasing fine lines around the eyes and mouth and reducing severity of wrinkles.

Vitamin A

It protects against UV damage and slows signs of aging. Most of your vitamin A intake comes from eating foods rich in beta-carotene and provitamin A carotenoids, which are potent antioxidants. Not only do these squelch free radicals that break down collagen (your skin’s support structure) and contribute to fine lines and saggy skin, they also lessen skin’s sensitivity to the sun, providing some natural protection against sun-induced redness and pigmentation.
It encourages healthy skin cell production. Retinal, retinol and retinoic acid are important to cell production and growth. Vitamin A also stimulates fibroblasts—the cells responsible for developing tissue that keeps skin firm and healthy—in the deep layers of your skin. Because vitamin A and carotenoids play such a big role in cell and tissue growth, not getting enough can lead to weakened skin, causing problems ranging from dryness to wounds that heal more slowly.
It protects against infection. Your skin is an important part of your immune system; think of it as your body’s bouncer—a first line of defense against bacteria, pollutants and infection. By promoting cell production, vitamin A helps strengthen this barrier, protecting your complexion from harmful irritants that attempt to attack the surface.

Vitamin C

It helps prevent sun damage. When skin is exposed to UV light, damaging molecules called free radicals attack cells and collagen, your skin’s support structure. This can trigger inflammation and lead to wrinkles, sun spots and even skin cancer. A potent antioxidant, vitamin C acts like an army protecting its territory: It neutralizes free radicals before they wreak havoc and reduces inflammation, minimizing its effects. Research has showed that women with the highest dietary intake of vitamin C had fewer noticeable wrinkles and less dryness.
It helps keep skin strong and firm. Along with minimizing the appearance of fine lines, vitamin C also helps the surface of your skin appear smoother and firmer by activating cells called fibroblasts that make new collagen.
It helps heal skin. Cuts, burns and other injuries that lead to scar tissue need the help of vitamin C to repair damaged skin. The vitamin may also play a role in the formation of keratinocytes—cells needed to close up a wound on the skin’s surface. While increasing your vitamin C intake does not appear to speed up the repair process, not getting enough may delay healing.

Grapefruit Peel Oil
