FSS Plant SIL Blend

A pristine beauty that is uniquely protected. FSS Plant SIL Blend is a blend of edelweiss and sunflower seed extracts that can restore and protect your innermost beauty. When used in skin and hair care, this blend can provide protection, nourishment and moisture balance for younger looking skin.

Edelweiss is a well-known mountain flower, belonging to the sunflower family. Scarce and short lived, this unique plant is known for its rugged beauty and purity associated with the Alps and is often referred to as “noble white”. Particularly found in high altitudes, edelweiss grows dense hair over its leaves and flowers as an effort to protect itself against the ever-changing environment. This unique mechanism allows the plant to produce secondary metabolites, which provide the plant with many cytoprotective properties, which the plant uses as a survival tactic. These secondary metabolites have various beneficial properties, including antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and moisturizing properties.

The Native Americans have used sunflower seeds for more than 5,000 years as a food source due to their healthy composition. Sunflower seeds are rich in Vitamins and minerals, namely B vitamins and vitamin E. Vitamin E is a fat-soluble antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals that damage cells while containing significant anti-inflammatory effects. The seeds are also rich in phytosterols which are compounds found in the plant, structurally similar to cholesterol, and have known health benefits. Sunflower seeds are also rich in phenolic acids, which are natural plant compounds that have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects to keep the plant healthy in various environmental states.

FSS Plant SIL Blend incorporates an extract of edelweiss along with a sunflower seed extract to deliver the benefits of these plants’ powerful response to stress. This blend is then reacted with cyclomethicone to impart a velvety cushion on the skin in order to enhance luminescence and sheen. FSS Plant SIL Blend can be added to skin and hair care formulations to provide much needed nourishment for a clean, healthy look and feel while also adding a nice velvety feel in applications.
