Extract of buds of “the tree of the eternal youth”, this BIO-certified and gemmotherapy-inspired active ingredient is a real elixir of youth to incorporate in your preparations to revitalize the skin and improves its brightness. In vitro tests show that it boosts the oxygenation of cells and stimulates their metabolism, and in vivo tests on volunteers confirm that it decreases the depth of wrinkles and improves cutaneous hydration.

* hydration of the upper layers of the epidermis.


Nicknamed ” tree of eternal youth ” because it reaches its “adult” age only around 60 years and can live up to more than 200 years, the common beech or fayard is a tree with a majestic look (it can reach 25-35 m) whose long thin trunk is typical of European temperate forests.


It is in the wild and semi-mountainous regions of eastern France that the beech buds used in this extract are harvested. Gathering takes place in remote areas of urban and industrial areas, but also areas of cereals, fruit or vegetables to avoid pollution or presence of pesticidesand herbicides. Only the buds on the lower branches are removed so as not to harm the future development of the tree . The cultivation and the gathering thus respect the natural vegetal balance . It is these strictly controlled criteria, as well as the chemical-free and solvent-free extraction process , that enable the BIO certification of this asset.


True embryos of plant life , the buds contain a rich and varied energy reserve: flavonoids, peptides, and especially the phytostimulins , which make it possible to pass from the state of dormancy to the hatching by stimulating the cellular metabolism.


The Gemmotherapy is a therapeutic approach based on plants buds properties. For this cosmetic application of gemmotherapy, the buds are picked at a very precise time of the development of the tree, over a very short period of 1-2 weeks, during which the buds are particularly rich in phytostimulines .


The buds are then stabilized using a patented microwave process, in order to avoid the natural degradation of the active ingredients by the plant enzymes. the process then comprises several extractive phases (without chemical solvent), in order to guarantee an optimal wealth of active ingredients .


PROPERTIES

Oxygenating and energizing : increases the oxygen consumption of cells, resulting in an increase in the cellular energy reserve and a boost in skin metabolism

Helps stimulate cellular protein synthesis : the production of structural proteins by the cells is boosted, which reinforces the structure of the dermis, skin support tissue

Helps to smooth wrinkles and fine lines , thanks to its action on protein synthesis that restructures the epidermis

Helps to maintain good skin hydration : the increase of proteins in the stratum corneum promotes the retention of water the maintenance of good skin hydration
