Snow Algae Powderhas been internationally recognised as the: Key to Skin`s Longevity www.snow-algae.com

Well, longevity is actually no longer a secret. It is now known that caloric restriction increases the lifespan of organisms. Swiss researches from world-renowend Mibelle Biochemistry Group have discovered how to translate this amazing anti-aging effect into skin care with Snow Algae Powder and thus dramatically improve the longevity of the skin cells.

In fact, Snow Algae Powder protects and activates two key factors of the caloric restriction pathway: the Klotho Longevity Gene and the AMPK Energy Sensor that together lead to a strong improvement in cellular defences, powerful oxidative stress resistance, cell detoxification and accelerated natural repair.

  • Skin is visibly rejuvenated.
  • The skin barrier is reinforced.
  • In addition, enzymes that destroy collagen are considerably reduced.
  • Skin appears significantly younger, healthier and detoxified as age spots are less visible.
  • The age-induced decrease in collagen production in the skin is stopped and even reversed.
  • The boundary surface between the dermis and the epidermis recovers its original papillary architecture

The Red Snow Mystery

In summertime, perpetual snow fields on Swiss Alpine mountains are tinged with a color that is a mixture of red and pink. This incredible phenomenon is caused by snow algae. Snow algae are able to survive the extreme conditions of alpine and polar snow fields. They even have the unique ability to actively live at a temperature of approximately 0 °C with very low nutrient levels. Conversely, most other plants in these conditions either reduce their metabolic activities or are simply unable to survive.

Following years of research and testing Swiss scientists were able to prove that the valuable stress response molecules produced by the algae in these extreme environmental conditions can protect the youthfulness of the skin in an effective manner.

PhytoCellTec™ has been internationally recognised as the: Key to Age Reversal www.phytocelltec.ch

Swiss scientists from Mibelle Biochemistry Group have conclusevely proven that plant stem cells can effect human stem cells in a positive manner. Every stem cell contains specific epigenetic factors whose task is to preserve the stem cells`multi-potency and its ability to self-renew. It has now been discovered that plant stem cells contain epigenetic factors similar to those of adult human stem cells which work to prevent and repair human stem cell damage though a proprietary Swiss application in the best skin care products for aging skin.

Our products combine plant stems of Swiss Edelweiss, Alpine Rose and High-Alpine Nunatak - a flower with exceptional life force, having survived the last ice age by growing on the mountain peaks of Swiss Alps.

  • Skin is re-densified.
  • Epidermal cells are protected and vitalised.
  • Skin`s self-defence activities are renewed and strengthened.
  • Skin appears significantly younger, healthier and detoxified.
  • Skin adapts quickly to climate changes and can resist harsh environmental conditions.
  • Strong improvement in skin barrier function where a visible fresh look is achieved.

PhytoCellTec™ Nunatak® is a rare alpine plant that survived the last Ice Age www.phytocelltec.ch

Saponaria Pumila is an extremophile plant in Alpine mountains that survived the last Ice Age by moving to rare ice-free peaks called nunataks. Constantly exposed to cold and high amounts of UV, this plant developed protecting and repair mechanisms that enabled it to adapt to its changing environment.

Mibelle Biochemistry Group have developed a unique method through its proprietory PhytoCellTec technology to effectively cultivate and extract stem cells from Saponaria Pumila for use in cosmetic products. Extensive studies have been performed on PhytoCellTec™ Nunatak® to show an amazing regenerative effect on human dermal cells despite UV radiation. This protective effect led to an increase in skin`s elasticity, firmness and density.

Matrixyl® is the winner of the 25 Years of Innovation Award which recognises the product that has had the greatest impact on the Personal Care ingredients market in the last quarter-century. Launched in 2000, Matrixyl® was the first peptide used for Personal Care applications. It has been considered as a breakthrough in the Cosmetic industry as voted for by a panel of over a thousand cosmetic industry experts. www.sederma.com
