Edelweiss, beauty’s best-kept secret from The Body Shop, has been proven to help build more resilient skin with 43% more antioxidant power than retinol. It’s skincare that’s vegan and natural, yet works! You can also say the Edelweiss range is a resilience all-rounder, as it contains the tiny yet resilient Edelweiss flower found in the harshest conditions in the Alps; helps build resilient skin; and the practice of responsibly sourcing Edelweiss flowers that are organically cultivated contributes to a more resilient planet.
In our daily lives, up to 80% of daily skin problems are caused by environmental aggressors like pollution and dust, making skin look dull, dry and tired. The powerful natural protection systems found in Edelweiss make it the ideal skincare ingredient.
The properties of Edelweiss – the flower and the products – have also been shown to maintain skin barrier health, as well as smoothen the skin’s surface, helping you keep a radiantly fresh face, whatever your age. That’s why Edelweiss is the beauty industry’s best-kept secret.
With a new formula and extended line-up, the game-changer is the Edelweiss extract containing Leontopodic acid, a unique and powerful ingredient that’s 60% stronger than ferulic acid, a known antioxidant.
Farm To Face To Beauty: Sustainably Harvesting Edelweiss
The Body Shop is committed to extracting the power of plants in harmony with nature, by working with knowledgeable, experienced botanists. Made within strict ‘green chemistry’ principles, Edelweiss is organically farmed and harvested by hand. It is carefully and respectfully cultivated in areas where the flower is not endangered to respect the Alpine biodiversity. It is then extracted using zero chemical waste, first through drying the plant, and then distilled using a renewable process.

Meet The Edelweiss Line Up: New Improved Formula
The new and improved range has been reformulated to deliver double the concentration of Edelweiss. This season, The Body Shop has an exciting new product joining the lineup, which is the Edelweiss Bouncy Sleeping Mask. An overnight facial mask, smooth it over your face before hitting the sack and wake up to smoother, renewed and bouncy skin! Each jar contains double the concentration of Edelweiss, strengthened with Leontopodic acid known for its antioxidant properties.
In each product, Edelweiss stem cells and Edelweiss extract containing hard-working antioxidants work together with natural-origin peptides, known to boost the skin’s defence mechanism and barrier function. While most peptides on the market are synthetic, The Body Shop sources from rice, an easily renewable and environmentally friendly natural alternative.
