Rediscovered and used in the fifties by Russians to increase physical capacities and to help promote cognitive functioning and reduce mental fatigue, for their cosmonauts and athlets, that perennial plant from 15 to 30 cm high grows spontaneously in the cold regions of Europe and Asia, especially in Siberia. But it was in the Scandinavian and North asiatic pharmacopeae for a long time. Its roots contain precious molecules like phenolic components, flavonoids, etc. that give it an adatogen property, meaning it increases resistance towards biological and physico chemical stress factors. Used to create several food supplements all over the world, it is still studied by academics.
Because skin is sometimes tired, it is necessary to give it energy back, maintaining its original energetic balances and improving cell respiration. To get a skin more active, looking more radiant.
Improves skin metabolism. Helps to stimulate cell regeneration and all cell functions in the epidermis.
Limits the creation of free radicals due to the physiological processes and free radicals induced by UVB.
Helps skin to get a tone more radiant, by detoxifing and oxygenating skin cells.

• Aspect: liquid
• Form: cells (20%) in glycerin or sunflower oil (80%)
• Concentration: starting at 0.5%
• Dispersible: in any formulation
Light&Energy Rose root acts at the level of epidermis on three main activities: the production of energy, respiration and oxidation. First, it stimulates the production of global cell energy: it relaunches the synthesis of ATP, the energy form that is necessary to skin cells, at the level of mitochondria – the organits which degrade sugars to make energy. Second, it improves cell respiration, even when skin experiences hard conditions, which helps to increase the production of energy in the same time. Third, it protects epidermis against oxidation, the physiological oxidation and the one induced by UV rays, by limiting the creation of free radicals. And free radicals lead to deletorious effects in long and short terms, especially in the process of cell respiration.
Thanks to those actions, skin cells can get a level of activity enough to perform all their functions, including those limited by ageing.
