Our partnership with Arise Swiss Alpine Cosmetic, an independent brand from Switzerland was the inspiration behind the name Snow Flower Chic. Arise is an organic skin care line which utilizes local Swiss plants, flowers and EcoCert certified ingredients.
Arise originated from a small family business that operated in the Swiss market for over 40 years. It started with the grandfather who made manicure and pedicure tools. This eventually inspired his granddaughter to develope a beauty care line with anti-aging properties. Her product range is entirely based on the real Alpine wonder in skin care - edelweiss.
There are plenty of skin protecting and strengthening benefits that are found in edelweiss extracts, many of which have been used as a natural medicine for generations.
Here are a few of the powerful ways edelweiss can nourish the skin;
•Potent natural anti-oxidant with anti-inflammatory properties. Soothes reddened or irritated skin.
•Edelweiss contains a natural compound - leontopodic acid, which strengthens the skin's barrier and helps to reduce sensitivity.
•Tightens and protects capillaries.
•Scavenges free-radicals and helps to guard the skin against environmental aggressors like airborne pollutants.
•Contains natural metabolites (small molecules), that protect against ultraviolet radiation from the sun absorbing UV radiation.
The photo above shows a burlap sack of hand picked edelweiss grown organically in the Great St. Bernard Pass. They are ready for the next step which is extraction. All of our products from Arise are formulated with Leontopodium alpinum, edelweiss extracts. You will notice the soothing properties right away! Why not add a few products with this "queen of the Alps" into your daily routine.
