Grown on the slopes of the Alps, Alpine Rose (aka Rhododendron) eliminates senescent skin cells, increases skin elasticity, nourishes skin stem cells, and helps reduce and repair damage caused by environmental stressors like UV radiation.
Alpine Rose really sets itself apart by its ability to stimulate collagen production. Collagen makes up the foundation of your skin and is responsible for giving you a smooth, youthful complexion.
The alpine rose grows on hillsides over 10,000 feet, where they have to adapt to temperatures well below zero and extreme winter dryness. The ingredient helps the skin’s barrier which has been compromised due to age and environmental factors such as UV and humidity changes.
Reduced barrier function leads to very dry and sensitive skin. Tested on human epidermal stem cells, Alpine Rose has been found to increase the vitality of skin stem cells. This improves epidermal regeneration and thus the quality of the skin barrier.
Boosting your skin’s natural functions like barrier protection and cell growth is an amazing benefit, but where the Alpine Rose really sets itself apart is its ability to stimulate collagen production. Collagen makes up the foundation of your skin and is responsible for giving you a smooth, youthful complexion. The Alpine Rose has the uncanny ability to support this function in your skin, giving it a wrinkle-fighting, anti-aging ability.
The Alpine Rose stem cells are able to survive the frost and dehydrating conditions of dry air and cold. And this protection appears to support more than the plant itself, as studies have shown the same stem cells can offer protection to human skin as well.
In studies, these stem cells were shown to reduce the formation of carbonylated proteins. These proteins are a marker of skin aging. The stem cells were also shown to protect the skin against herpes occurrence due to their strong antiviral effect.
Oxidative stress was measured in vivo by examining the carbonyl protein content in human skin after exposure to UVA radiation. Compared to the placebo-treated skin samples the carbonyl protein content was significantly reduced in the skin sites treated with the Alpine Rose stem cells.
This powerful extract is a key ingredient in the CHARLÍS Nourishing Anti-Aging Toner, which hydrates, restores pH balance, and brightens to reveal softer, smoother skin fully prepped for your skincare routine. In addition to Alpine Rose, this amazing toner also uses:
ORGANIC ALOE BARBADENSIS LEAF JUICE: Aloe Barbadensis is another word for Aloe Vera. Aside from being a staple in your mother’s medicine cabinet for sunburned skin, this amazing plant has been used by different civilizations for centuries for a range of skin care, health, and medicinal purposes. It’s a great moisturizer and also helps wound healing and skin regeneration in general.
BUDDLEJA DAVIDII EXTRACT: Commonly called the “butterfly bush,” this fragrant flowering plant has proven a valuable skin care ingredient due to its anti-aging benefits. The fast-growing shrub is shown to help protect skin from photo damage, oxidative stress, and UV radiation.
CITRUS AURANTIUM BERGAMIA: Extracted from the fruit of a small tree, this sweet-smelling oil is great for toning, cleansing and gently antiseptic. It soothes skin irritations, minimizes the look of scars and other marks on the skin, and also helps even out skin tone by influencing melanin production.
ORGANIC CITRUS AURANTIUM DULCIS OIL: The essential oil from the rind of the orange, this oil has demonstrated antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, skin lightening, and anti-microbial properties and can be beneficial in skin care formulations. Hesperidin has also been shown to offer skin protection against UVA-induced damage of fibroblasts and collagen.
