Since Edelweiss, Leontopodium Alpinum, is extremely rare and thrives best on exposed, poorly accessible slopes, this precious flower became a symbol of eternal love. Today, the Edelweiss is a protected alpine flower. Over the centuries, the robust and durable plant has developed essential properties which allow it to survive in the harsh mountain conditions. Thus, the Edelweiss produces extremely powerful, natural antioxidants and cell elasticity-enhancing properties which can be specifically put to use in cosmetics for it outstanding anti-ageing effect.
