Key Ingredients:

Lady's Thistle

This is an annual or biannual plant and the fruits are used in this extract.  The fruit contains actives in the flavonolignans category: silybin, silydianin, silychristin. The flavonolignans are added for free radical scavenger action and its anti-elastase properties.

Alchemilla

Widely found across Europe and the leaves are used in the extract. The leaves have tannins and flavonoids. These tannins exhibit anti-elastase activity.

Horsetail

This plant has two different types of stems: the sterile stems and the fertile stems that appear during the Spring. Fertile stems are used as a cosmetic raw material, because of its abundant mineral components, especially silicon, and flavone compounds. Silicon content helps stabilize the glycosaminoglycans in the connective tissue.

Germinated seeds

Amino acids and vitamins from soy beans, wheat germ, alfalfa and radish are added because of their stimulating action on fibroblastic protein synthesis.

Horse Chestnut Seed

Contains escin which inhibits enzymes including collagenase, hyaluronidase, beta-glucuronidase, and elastase to increase capillary permeability.
