S5 Alpine Epilobium Fleisheri
Epilobium fleisheri, an alpine bioactive, is one of S5’s hero ingredients, taken from the Alpine ecosystem where organisms have developed highly advanced defensive mechanisms to survive the extreme heights with low oxygen levels, extreme cold and high level exposure to solar radiation. Produced from a rare Alpine herb, this ingredient reduces 5 alpha reductase - the enzymes produced by blemishes that stimulate oil production and can cause surface irritation.
