The tiny white flower, a north star of mountaineers, reduces environmental stress.


No other plant is as emblematic of the Swiss Alps as Edelweiss. The rare, velvety white flower’s delicate look belies an incredible heartiness—a trait often found among plants that overcome challenging natural conditions to thrive. Edelweiss contains a natural compound called leontopodic acid, which is prized for its balancing and antioxidant qualities, including its ability to reduce, on the genetic level, stress markers from ultraviolet radiation and other environmental influences.
