Applications & Uses

Mode Of Action
ALPAFLOR® EDELWEISS stimulates key proteins responsible for providing maximum protection and moisturization of the skin. Particularly, levels of transglutaminase 1 and involucrin are increased to reinforce the cornified envelopes. Gene expression studies have demonstrated the multi-target activity of ALPAFLOR® EDELWEISS on several levels. In particular loricrin, involucrin, filaggrin, small proline-rich proteins (SPRRs), keratin 1, and keratin 10 gene expression are significantly up-regulated.
