Royal Fern – the perfect symbiosis of highly effective substances from nature and modern anti-aging cell research.
At the core of the new skin care series Royal Fern is a plant with unique properties: the fern. The plant has adapted perfectly to the earth’s changing state for over 400 million years: Ferns were the first plants that came from the sea and developed on land. Ferns are evergreen and act as a natural, tremendous moisture reserve in forests. They are also highly resistant to sunlight.
This adaptability and resistance to environmental influences, such as UV rays, mean the fern is of high interest for research in cosmetics.
International, independent scientific studies show that fern extracts contain valuable substances which positively influence all the signs of intrinsic (genetic) and extrinsic (caused by environmental factors) skin aging. It is proven that fern extracts protect the skin’s sensitive cell DNA and in doing so also protect against light-induced skin aging. They prevent the reduction of collagen and elastin, and stimulate the production of new collagen by releasing increased levels of growth factors. Their huge antioxidant potential ensures that existing damage is repaired and new damage is prevented. Furthermore, the ferns regulate moisture and have an anti-inflammatory as well as antibacterial effect – making them the perfect antidote to stress and environmental influences. Plus, the reduction of pigments provides for a smoother complexion.
Dr. Timm Golueke is one of the most renowned dermatologists in Germany and an internationally sought-after anti-aging expert. Together with a team around the internationally recognized chemist and research scientist Prof. Dr. Leonhard Zastrow, who has developed over 500 cosmetic patents worldwide, he investigated the phenomenon of the fern. With the help of further scientific studies the team identified the very substances that strengthen the photoactive, i. e. the biologically active anti-aging effect of the fern many times over, and created the unique biological ROYAL FERN COMPLEX. For this, the highly concentrated extracts of the fern were combined with seeds from the African Voacanga tree, wild rose blossoms, sea buckthorn and UV light reflecting mineral oxides to form an innovative, synergetically acting complex of natural substances.
Encapsulated in liposomes the valuable substances take effect where the skin really needs them and penetrate down to the deeper skin layers. The deferred release over the course of 12 hours ensures that the skin is provided with long-lasting protection. In addition, highly effective anti-aging molecules – including valuable hyaluronic acid, vitamin C from the Acerola cherry, vitamin A (retinol), vitamin E, flavonoids, macadamia nut oil and cocoa butter – supplement the ROYAL FERN COMPLEX in a unique way and fight skin aging on all levels.
Following four years of intensive research and development the team around Dr. Timm Golueke received the patent for the unique complex of natural substances known as the Royal Fern Complex.
