THE NEW GREEN LIFT COMPLEX
The newly developed Green Lift Complex consists of three components: edelweiss cell culture extract containing highly effective leontopodic acid, the bio-vehicle dipalmitoyl hydroxyproline, and lecithin, an essential component of the cell membrane.
Leontopodium alpinum, better known as edelweiss, has become a symbol of mountain flora due to its characteristic appearance and is also called “Queen of the Mountains.” The star-shaped flowering plant is particularly interesting for the anti-aging sector: lavera research uses a plant culture extract (leontopodium alpinum callus culture extract), which contains a high concentration of the active ingredient leontopodic acid. This reduces the activity of the collagen-degrading enzymes and is characterized by its skin-tightening effect – a true miracle elixir against flaccid skin contours.
Dipalmitoyl hydroxyproline promotes collagen synthesis by helping to introduce the amino acid hydroxyproline, which is essential for collagen synthesis, into the cells. Physiological studies of the skin have shown that the use of dipalmitoyl hydroxyproline significantly reduces the depth of wrinkles and improves skin tightening.
Lecithin is an essential component of the cell membrane and important for the barrier function of the skin. It has a lipid replenishing effect and makes the skin supple and elastic and prevents drying out after washing, especially on dry skin.
Other important components of the firming care series
Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of connective tissue where it supports collagen and elastin fibers, and strengthens these structural proteins. Just one gram of hyaluronic acid can bind up to 6 liters of water, creating deposits of moisture. The special thing about lavera is that three different natural hyaluronic acid molecules are used. These have different molecule sizes and thus optimally supply the skin with moisture to the different layers of skin, and pad the skin naturally from the inside.
Karanja oil is extracted from the karanja tree, the “Indian beech.” The oil has hydrating and healing properties, makes the skin supple, and naturally counteracts skin aging. It also absorbs UV rays and has a natural sun protection factor.
