Active substance derived from the cell wall of yeast, acts on the skin to strengthen the immune system. Beta glucan supports the regeneration of damaged cells and stimulates collagen formation.

Plant-derived fresh cells from pumpkins are enzymatically isolated and contain the complete cell information and all the enzymes, lipids, amino acids and an intact cell membrane. The fresh cells fuse with the skin cells, where they release their vital contents.

A legend with phytotherapy herbal extracts. This extract of plants comprising rosemary, ginseng, stinging nettle, brownwort, sorrel, fumitory and bladderwrack supports the skin’s recovery process. It stimulates the skin’s microcirculation and generally revitalizes the skin.
