Edelweiss extract has a long and noble history, and even its name is associated with royalty. The name of this extract, which comes from the Edelweiss flower, means “noble and white” in German. The flower was hugely popular among hikers that came across it while backpacking in parts of the Alps - so much so, that the flower nearly became extinct. Luckily, Germany, Austria, Italy, and Switzerland came together in an effort to protect the flower and its habitat and the Edelweiss flower has been safe ever since. Even a song and play has been written about the flower. And its noted benefits for both health and beauty are again putting this special flower and its extract into the limelight.
