A combination of carefully selected ingredients helps to hydrate and thicken the skin by increasing collagen production in order to smooth wrinkles and reverse loss of volume. The synergy of effects from Ice age flower stem cells, Prickly pear elixir, Oligosaccharide derived from red algae and Pomegranate lipophilic extract leads to: • Protecting and vitalizing dermal stem cells (and specifically protecting against UV stress); • Reinforcing the skin’s self-defence mechanism; • Increasing skin density; • Soothing, calming and hydrating the skin.

Key Active Ingredients and Their Effects
ICE AGE FLOWER (SAPONARIA PUMILA) STEM CELLS (THE PRODUCT “NUNATAK®)” – In the Alps, Saponaria pumila is one of the very few alpine plants that have managed to survive the harsh conditions of the last ice age. Clinical studies with Nunatak® have confirmed a positive effect of using stem cells from Saponaria pumila to give improved skin density, firmness, elasticity and effective protection of dermal stem cells against UV-induced stress.
PRICKLY PEAR (OPUNTIA FICUS-INDICA) ELIXIR – An ultra-refined elixir from the prickly pear cactus blocks the release of stress markers from sensory nerve cells in the skin and calms irritated skin. Also, it has excellent hydrating properties due to its high content of water-binding compounds.
OLIGOSACCHARIDE DERIVED FROM RED ALGAE (HALYMENIA DURVILLEI) – Oligosaccharides extracted from red algae can inhibit the beginning of undesired cell proliferation (that cause skin anomalies), and thus allow the maintenance of the youthfulness of skin cells.
POMEGRANATE (PUNICA GRANATUM) LIPOPHILIC EXTRACT – Pomegranate is a source of fatty oil with a high concentration of punicic acid, a valuable polyunsaturated fatty acid. It also contains compounds that promote skin protection and regeneration compounds (antioxidant tocopherols (related to vitamin E), skin oil sterols and vitamin A-containing carotenoids).
SEA BUCKTHORN (HIPPOPHAE RHAMNOIDES) LIPOPHILIC EXTRACT – Sea buckthorn has a unique fatty acid composition, containing more than 50% of unsaturated fatty acids. It also contains compounds that promote skin protection and regeneration (antioxidant tocopherols (related to vitamin E), skin oil sterols and vitamin A-containing carotenoids).
Other Supporting Ingredients
PRESERVATIVES USED – Formulations are made as self-preserving products – with only small portion of benzyl alcohol and dehydroacetic acid, well researched Cosmos and ECOGEA approved preservatives for organic cosmetics. Self-preserving is achieved as a combination of few natural derived ingredients. The mixture is composed of organic acids that are found in nature in many plants and bee hives (e.g. levulinic acid), chelator of natural origin (sodium phytate), plant derived multifunctional glyceryl monoester (Glyceryl Caprylate). The pH of products (= 5.5) is appropriately balanced with the acidic environment. The products are packed in containers with limited access to ambient air, which minimizes any chance of overall product contamination.
PLANT DERIVED EMULSIFIERS, GELLING AGENTS AND THICKENERS:
CETEARYL GLUCOSIDE, SORBITAN OLIVATE, GLYCERYL STEARATE CITRATE, SODIUM STEAROYL GLUTAMATE – A blend of emulsifying ingredients with the ability to develop a liquid crystal structure in emulsions. They reinforce skin barrier, moisturise the skin and have pleasant after feel.
CETEARYL ALCOHOL – An ingredient for regulation of viscosity and texture.
GUAR GUM, XANTHAN GUM – Natural thickeners and stabilisers. Act as transepidermal water loss protectors to maintain desirable levels of TEWL.
SHEA BUTTER, MACADAMIA OIL, JOJOBA OIL -Natural oils, easily absorbed into the skin. These are nutritive, restructuring, and hydrating. Perfect synergy for skin after 30.
SQUALANE – Naturally occurring hydrocarbon made from the unsaponifiable matter of olive oil. It protects the skin against loss of moisture, makes it elastic and pliant, and thereby improves the structure of the natural lipid film.
Instructions for Use
In the morning and evening apply the cream on the clean skin.
