Glycogem is a complex of substances extracted through an exclusive proceeding from cells present in
the buds of some plants cultivated in vitro with a technology specialized in stem cell cultures Glycogem is associated with Hydrolyzed GAG according to the CR&D technology, to allow a better
bioavailability and penetration through the skin layers where the gems derivatives perform their cosmetic
activities. Glycogem Leontopodium derivatives from stems of Leontopodium Alpinum (Edelweiss) complexed
with Hydrolyzed GAG.
The active elements produced by the cell cultures in vitro of Leontopodium Alpinum have been
recognized in: phenylpropanoids, phytosterols, aminoacids, polysaccharides, with restructuring,
protective and energizing activity. Glycogem Leontopodium develops a strong anti ageing activity due to its anti collagenase
properties. It also shows an antioxidant and radical scavenger action, more important than the most part
of the antioxidants commonly used.
