The Saponaria pumila is a perennial plant of the alpine mountains. The flowers of these plants are a deep rose pink flower with small fleshy leaves. It has survived through the extreme weathers of the last ice age by moving to rare ice-free peaks called nunataks. Exposure to extreme cold temperatures and high amounts of UV radiation, the Saponaria pumila has adapted to these challenging environments by developing protective and repair mechanisms.
It is for this reason that we have chosen to use the Saponaria pumila in our new Complete Body Firming Lotion. In a study conducted with twenty women between the ages of 44.2 and 59.5 years of age with sun damaged skin, participants were given either a cream with 0.4% of the Saponaria pumila stem cell or the corresponding placebo. The creams were applied twice daily for 28 days to the inner-side of their forearms. The research concluded that applying the active ingredient over 4 weeks re-densified the dermis by almost 10% as compared to the original conditions
Further research has shown that the stem cells extracted from this plant also has the ability to protect our skin from daily environmental challenges, whilst also helping to increase skin density, skin elasticity and firmness.
The Complete Body Firming Lotion is the first all-over body product to be introduced into the Enbacci Skincare line of products. Taking ingredients that have traditionally been reserved for the face, we have decided to harness the power of plant stem cells and incorporate them into a hydrating body lotion.
