Active ingredients are what make a skincare product effective. They are backed by scientific data known to bring about a specific change in the skin. The main active ingredients in HANZZ HEIDII are derived from plant stem cells that harness the most potent active substances within snow algae and edelweiss. There is also InfraGuard, another innovative active ingredient that neutralizes free radicals and protects cells against infrared light and the blue light from computers and cell phones. The products also include pure Swiss water, vitamins, minerals and oils with deep, high-performance, anti-inflammatory, and moisturizing effects.
Have the HANZZ HEIDII ingredients and products been dermatologically tested?
Skincare and cosmetic products manufactured in Switzerland are subject to extremely high quality standards. To ensure the unique, high quality of our products, the manufacturing process is carried out according to common GMP standards and guidelines, and subject to physical, chemical, and microbiological testing throughout.
All HANZZ HEIDII ingredients have been dermatologically tested and have BIOCERT, ECOCERT or COSMOCERT certification. The carefully selected ingredients are well characterized from their origin to their use in the final product, approved for cosmetic products in the concentrations used, and assessed as safe for use in skincare.
We also conduct dermatological tests on the products with volunteers before launching any new products on the market. These confirm the excellent tolerability of our HANZZ HEIDII ingredients. Before the market launch in 2018, all products were tested for their safety and skin compatibility with the ingredients used. All available literature data, legal requirements, specification values, official recommendations, and empirical values were considered for the evaluation.
What is the difference between organic and natural skincare?
A natural ingredient is wildcrafted from nature. An organic ingredient has been cultivated by man, without synthetic based fertilizers and pesticides.
At least 50% of the plant-based HANZZ HEIDII Ingredients in the formulation and at least 5% of the total ingredients must be organically grown.
At least 95% of the plant-based ingredients in the formulation and at least 10% of the total ingredients must be organically grown.
What are plant stem cells?
Plant stem cells are localized in the root and shoot of the plant. Plant stem cells are sustainably extracted. They can be produced entirely in the laboratory without any pesticides or need to cultivate land. Stem cells are the “building blocks of life”, responsible for the development and regeneration processes of all living beings. In both animals and humans, all vital organs and functions develop from the stem cells in the embryonic stage. While the flexibility of stem cells in humans and animals decrease after birth, plant stem cells are constantly changing during their life span, making room for new shoots, leaves, flowers, or fruits develop.
This life-long flexibility makes plant stem cells so interesting for the metabolic processes of our skin. Given the right cultivation conditions, the biosynthesis of the stem cells can be controlled, and specific plant constituents can be enriched. Plants enriched with the desired ingredient can then be used as an extract in the cosmetic formulation so that the active ingredient can be used in high concentrations with a quality that is consistently high.
Why are plant stem cells used in skincare?
HANZZ+HEIDII products are part of the Zinzino
Plant stem cells have the capacity to support processes that take place within the cells of our skin and thus counteract the natural degeneration process. Signs of skin ageing caused by stress or light can be effectively combated by cosmetics containing plant stem cells, as can signs of tiredness or lack of elasticity. Plant stem cells are extremely flexible building material promote the regenerative processes of our skin and have a positive effect on the skin’s own ability to renew itself, which decreases with time.
Although our body’s own stemcells ensure continuous renewal of the skin, this ability diminishes more and more as we age. This is where plant stem cell cosmetics intervene: Cellular active HANZZ HEIDII Ingredients of plant origin stimulate the skin’s own collagen production, thereby reducing wrinkles and making the skin fresher, firmer and smoother. Plants also possess outstanding self-healing powers. They form new tissue very quickly from corresponding stem cells – which is another reason why plant stem cells are so interesting to boost our skin’s own wound healing processes. What tests have been carried out on the stem cells and what was the result?
The effect of the active HANZZ HEIDII ingredients was tested on cell cultures with human epidermal stem cells. These tests prove that the active substances can maintain the stem cells’ ability to divide for longer, even when the cells were additionally stressed with UV light. Tests on the 3D epidermis model show that even aged skin stem cells can still build up a complete epidermis through the application. This means that aged stem cells treated with edelweiss and snow algae have an activity like young stem cells. These positive effects could also be confirmed in tests with test persons.
