2. PhytoCellTec™ Solar Vitis is based on stem cells from the Gamay Teinturier Fréaux grapes from Burgundy, which is characterized by an extremely high content of polyphenols for UV protection that has been obtained through Mibelle Biochemistry's unqiue PhytoCellTec™ technology. As we all know UV radiation is responsible for 80% of skin aging. Despite the use of sun protection filters, toxins and free radicals are generated by UV in the skin. This affects sensitive cells, such as the epidermal stem cells, which are essential and most valuable. The activity of skin stem cells is the key factor in ensuring the vitality and regeneration capacity of the skin. PhytoCellTec™ Solar Vitis both protects and maintains the activity of epidermal stem cells – even in cases of stress induced by UV.

4. PhytoCellTec™ DermCom is based on a Crocus chrysanthus bulb extract. It can reverse the aging process by stimulating the communication between skin cells. The crocus is a universal symbol of rejuvenation and youthfulness. With age, the communication process between skin cells, which is mediated by growth factors is reduced. This strongly affects the extracellular matrix (ECM), the structural network of the skin and leads to a reduction of its firmness, elasticity and density. DermCom induces keratinocytes to secrete growth factors that enhance the synthesis of skin matrix

6. PhytoCellTech SaponariaPumila (Nunatak) Stem Cell During the last Ice Age, the whole of Switzerland was covered under ice. This climatic condition represented a threat to mankind, animals and plants. Indeed, most of the plants didn’t survive this harsh climate. However, a small number of plant species managed to escape the ice. They did this by moving to rare ice-free mountain peaks called Nunatak. From one of these plants that displayed such outstanding survival characteristics, Mibelle Biochemistry PhytoCellTec has succeeded in establishing a plant stem cell culture. The extract of these stem cells was able to protect human dermal stem cells against UV-irradiation. It works perfectly well as a super defense hydration, cell-recharging and an illuminating moisturizer.

9. Sun Actin is an organic sunflower shoot extract combined with natural vitamin E in a nano-emulsion. SunActin protects the skin against oxidative stress and complements the protective effect of sunscreens.
Sprouts also called shoots have naturally occurring levels of nutrients (vitamins, antioxidants and phyto-nurients) which are higher than in the corresponding mature plant.
Photo-aging is the main aging process as solar UV radiation is known to be responsible for 80% of skin aging. It affects especially the extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins which form the skin’s connective tissue and whose degradation accelerates due to the increasing level of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs).
• Inhibit the production of MMPs responsible for degradation of major skin components
• Boosts protective effect of sunscreens
• Enhances the skin’s defense capacity
• Prevents formation of sunburn cells
• Reduces aging, even at the cellular level
• Protects skin from UV induced oxidative stress
10. Aqua Cacteen is an ultra-refined elixir from organic cactus. It blocks the release of stress markers from sensory nerve cells in the skin and calms irritated skin. It also has excellent hydrating properties due to its high content of water-binding compounds. Clinical studies conducted on both women and men showed that Aqua Cacteen was exceptionally soothing and firming. Also, it was found to be very hydrating even when used in rinse-off products. The benefits are soothes and calms irritated skin, hydrates the skin, soothing, hydrating and firming.

11. Pore Away Based on mastic, an aromatic resin coming from the bark of a tree that grows on the Greek island of Chios, PoreAway tightens dilated pores. Clinical studies conducted on Caucasian and Asian women with dilated pores and impure skin showed that PoreAway tightens dilated pores, refines the skin grain, reduces imperfections such as comedones and microcysts, and reduces skin oiliness. PoreAway can thus visibly improve the quality of the skin by refining its texture, reducing cutaneous imperfections and improve skin radiance.

12. Super Citrimax Gardenia Cambogia A natural, non-stimulant, safe and effective fruit extract from the South Asian fruit Garcinia cambogia, that helps support healthy body weight. Super Citrimax® is rich in hydroxycitric acid (HCA), a natural compound that supports dieting without affective the nervous system. Super Citrimax blocks the conversion of carbohydrates into fat by inhibiting an enzyme called ATP-Citrate Lyase. It promotes storing excess energy from unused carbohydrates as glycogen rather than fat. This then signals the brain to turn off all hunger signals. As a result, it suppresses appetite as well. Not only does Super Citrimax increase fat oxidation ("fat burning") and suppress the appetite, but it may also help lower bad cholesterol levels while pushing up the good cholesterol. In addition, it increases serotonin levels in the brain, a neurotransmitter that helps improve moods, as well as decrease hunger and improve sleep.
13. Acai berry is the richest known source of potent antioxidant compounds, particularly anthocyanins & Omega 3 Fatty Acids. Acaiberry is also a powerhouse of nutrients and has an almost perfect composition of essential amino acids with an abundance of valuable trace minerals and micronutrients. Acai has the ability to support health and normal cellular tissue growth. These powerful antioxidants help defend the body against life's stressors.

15. Mulberry Extract Touted as superfood & the “next known health sensation”, has effective sugar blocking properties that will combat diabetes, cholesterol and heart disease while helping us to lose unwanted pounds. Mulberry leaves contain an element called 1-deoxynojirimycin (DNJ) that controls the absorption of glucose and helps to reduce the amount of glucose in blood, which is responsible for managing fats and sugars. It’s also packed with powerful antioxidant that are known to help decrease damages caused by free radicals and body cells against the oxidative stress, various minerals and extracts such as beta-carotene, GABA-1, amino acids, carotenoids, flavonoids, chlorophyll, vitamins C, B1, B2, B6, A and fiber.
16. Green coffee extract has been found to significantly reduce fat absorption as well as fuel metabolic rates in the liver, both of which are very important in weight reduction. Green coffee contains a natural chemical called Chlorogenic Acid. This chemical slows the release of sugars in the bloodstream, a process which also helps in weight loss. Since chlorogenic acid increases thermogenesis (a process when body heat is produced), fat is burned faster for energy consumption. Moreover, because green coffee contains much more anti-oxidants than roasted coffee, taking green coffee supplements can also help in reducing the production of fat cells in the body.
