Sustainable bioactive for pro-ageing skin care

DSM has developed an anti-ageing active ingredient made from an Edelweiss ( Aomori Hiba ) extract. It is cultivated between 1000 metres and 1500 metres altitude in the Swiss Alps, ensuring a maximum content of active compounds such as leontopodic acid and flavonoids (luteolin and apigenin derivatives)

Anti-ageing is a highly sought-after benefit in facial skin care products. However, the antiageing claim is evolving to ‘better ageing’ or ‘proageing’ as consumers are more focused on using products that can help them achieve healthier looking, brighter skin with less visible wrinkles.

As such, skin care brands are actively developing new formulations with ingredients that have efficacy in reducing fine lines and wrinkles, boosting collagen, increasing elasticity and providing protection from environmental stressors. One bioactive has demonstrated to be effective in providing all these benefits as well as other useful benefits.

Alpaflor® Edelweiss CB, hereafter named Leontopodium alpinum ‘Helvetia’ extract, is DSM’s natural, organic preservative-free bioactive. It is cultivated between 1000 metres and 1500 metres altitude in the Swiss Alps, ensuring a maximum content of active compounds such as leontopodic acid and flavonoids (luteolin and apigenin derivatives).
