Beauty from Swiss plants
Swiss plants are a diverse source of valuable active substances for natural cosmetics.
Switzerland is known for its stunning mountains and lakes, but its flora and fauna also have a lot to offer. The range of different altitudes in Switzerland means that the country has an abundant diversity of plants, which are also constantly being discovered for natural cosmetics. Allow us to introduce you to a selection of Swiss plants, flowers and fruits that are carefully selected and processed for BIOKOSMA natural cosmetic products.
Leontopodium alpinum (L.)
Edelweiss, a symbol of the flora in Switzerland, has developed a highly efficient mechanism to protect against cold and strong sun in order to survive in extreme conditions.
Containing a high percentage of antioxidants and numerous vitamins, edelweiss extract protects against premature skin ageing and helps the skin to combat harmful environmental impacts. Reinforces and firms the connective tissue.
The edelweiss extract has a positive effect on the skin's fat and moisture balance, leaving it lastingly soft and smooth.
Edelweiss also has an antibacterial, anti-inflammatory effect on dry, tired skin.
In partnership with BOTANICA, BIOKOSMA uses ORGANIC edelweiss sourced exclusively from controlled organic Swiss cultivation for its delicate shower cream and extra-rich, palm oil-free body cream.
