MossCellTec™ No. 1 is a highly innovative active based on a

novel anti-aging concept: cell nucleus health

new ingredient source: first active ingredient from biotechnologically produced moss

Mosses were the first plants to conquer the land about 470 million years ago. They used their extraordinary adaptation abilities to survive from the prehistoric age until today. MossCellTec™ is an innovative technology that now makes it possible to benefit from those extremely resilient properties.

MossCellTec™ No 1 is based on the protonema culture of the moss Physcomitrella patens. The active maintains cell nucleus health that is a completely novel anti-aging concept. The cell nucleus contains the cell’s DNA and it is involved in regulating essential cellular processes.

Extensive studies showed that MossCellTec™ No. 1 activates the lamin A gene responsible for the nuclear envelope structure and the nuclear transport gene RanBP17. Both genes are down-regulated in aged keratinocytes. MossCellTec™ No. 1 supports the skin’s adaptation to climatic stresses in vitro and in vivo.

MossCellTec™ No. 1 strengthens skin against urban aggressors and climatic changes and improves the hydration, barrier and homogeneity of the skin after just two weeks.



PhytoCellTec™ Nunatak® is based on stem cells from Saponaria pumila, a rare flower that survived the last Ice Age in the Alps. During this period of glaciation, Saponaria pumila managed to escape the ice by moving to rare ice-free mountain peaks that are known as nunataks. Despite being continually exposed to low temperatures and high amounts of UV radiation, this rare plant developed unique adaption strategies, effective repair mechanisms and protecting components. And these precious substances have now become available for skin care.
