S5 Alpine Herb Blend
As one of S5’s hero ingredients, this alpine bioactive is 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. This bioactive is extracted from a blend of 7 alpine plants that reduces the colour and intensity of age spots as well as helping to even skin tone.
Scientific Data and Benefits
This active, alpine plant derived ingredient has been developed as a result of a research program, producing an even more effective compound by combining selected organically grown, Swiss alpine plants, based on their ability to inhibit tyrosinase – the enzyme responsible for the production of melanin or skin pigment. From clinical trials in vivo, this alpine bioactive has shown to increase the appearance of skin lightness by 15% and reduce the appearance of age spot colour intensity by 28.6%.
Inhibition of age spots
This ingredient furthermore has shown significant skin lightening activity after 12 weeks of treatment, with no sign of any particular irritation. Overall it has shown to significantly brighten the complexion and even skin tone.
