High above Lake Constance, at the foot of the mighty Alpstein, the Appenzell region has preserved its individuality: Time seems to stand still among the hilly pastures and Alpine mountain idyll; people and nature are in tune with one another; old customs, traditional knowledge and the artisan tradition are as alive as ever. Clocks tick differently here, and a lot of precious things have outlasted themselves.
From the spicy Appenzell cheese to the sweet Appenzell Biber cake, the specialties are prepared according to the centuries-old recipes. From the Appenzell rustic painting to the metal-covered Appenzell leather belt, a rich folk culture is present everywhere, strongly marked by traditional alpine farming, which still defines life and customs: The festive parade through the Alps, when the Appenzell goats and cows are led to the green pastures in the highlands, cannot be passed up.
So, it is no wonder, that the long forgotten knowledge has been preserved here: The knowledge about the secrets of nature and their blessings for our health. Nor is it a coincidence that LediBelle – a truly natural skincare series – was developed here, in the blessed Appenzell region: made with the gifts of indigenous nature, from the nurturing goat whey to the energizing St. Jacob’s spring water.
Goat whey from Appenzell
Goat whey is rich in essential nutrients. Calcium, sodium, magnesium, vitamins A, B1, B2, C, D, E and the precious natural coenzyme Q10 support skin cell build-up and renewal. The lactic acid strengthens the acid mantle of the skin which protects the skin from harmful bacteria, negative environmental influence, infections, inflammation, irritation, allergies and dryness. Goat whey promotes blood circulation, stimulates skin cells, improves elasticity and visibly reduces fine lines.
St. Jaсob’s Spring Water
The valuable minerals like sodium, calcium and magnesium help to maintain an optimal level of hydration, protect the skin from irritation and erase the fine lines. The life-giving water has a special vibrational mode which provides for the optimal effect of the ingredients in LediBelle products.
ALL AROUND THE WORLD
In addition to skin-protecting vitamins A and E, avocado also contains high levels of unsaturated fatty acids, which help to maintain skin hydration. Omega-9 fatty acid plays an important role in cell repair and can help relieve redness and irritation of the skin. Avocado also contains vitamin C, which supports the skin’s elastin- and collagen-building, keeping the skin youthful, supple and smooth. All this makes avocado oil an essential for beautiful skin.
The Aloe Vera plant not only contains important essential oils with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, but is also rich in enzymes that fight free radicals in the body, vitamins including C and E, as well as various amino acids. Its valuable ingredients help to naturally hydrate, firm and regenerate the skin.
Coenzyme Q10 has strong antioxidant properties and plays an important role in the defence against free radicals, thus protecting the skin from environmental stress and aging processes. Because the body’s own production of Q10 declines with age, a Q10-containing care can protect against premature aging of the skin. Our Q10 is a natural part of the goat whey.
The extract of this “anti-aging flower” is rich in antioxidants which protect the skin from free radicals and can reverse the age clock. The anti-aging ingredients of edelweiss stimulate production of hyaluronic acid and prevent collagen degradation, thus improving elasticity of the skin and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Hyaluronic acid supports skin’s firmness and elasticity. As the body’s production of this gel-like fluid declines, hyaluronic acid can be replenished by skin care. This powerful agent penetrates the upper layers of the skin and binds moisture there, which can smooth wrinkles and rejuvenate the appearance of the skin.
For a long time now, jojoba oil has proven a true all-round care agent and a real miracle cure particularly in skin care. Its structure is much closer to human sebum than any other plant oil and it is readily accepted and tolerated by the skin. Jojoba oil keeps the skin hydrated by locking in the moisture and protects it from the drying effects of the environment. Valuable fatty acids make the skin smooth and resilient without leaving a greasy film.
Moringa oil works as an excellent exfoliator, driving away the dead skin cells and deeply purifying the pores. It also has a strong antioxidant capacity fighting the free radicals and thus preventing the signs of aging. Moringa oil is a great moisturizer, especially for dry skin. It is easily absorbed by the skin and keeps it hydrated.
This unique ingredient, also known as provitamin B5, is especially known for supporting the production of new skin cells and thus accelerating the skin’s natural healing process. It also triggers lipid synthesis in the upper layer of the skin which increases elasticity and keeps the skin hydrated. Panthenol is essential for skin care, particularly for mature, stressed and dry skin.
The valuable ingredients found in shea butter make this product a very special cure. The interplay of various ingredients, like vitamin E, beta carotene, Omega-3 fatty acids and allantoin, makes shea butter a real panacea for skin imperfections. Not only can it be used to treat rashes, but also works as a true anti-aging agent and supports the cell regeneration and cell building. It particularly provides gentle care for dry and damaged skin, making it smoother and more elastic.
Vitamin E is one of the fat-soluble vitamins the body cannot produce on its own. It has a strong antioxidative effect and protects from free radicals. Vitamin E captures and neutralises harmful compounds in the skin caused by UV radiation. Thus, vitamin E not only slows down the aging process, but also smoothens the skin and helps to increase its hydration level.
Meadowfoam Seed Oil
Among other valuable ingredients, the meadowfoam is rich in essential oils and minerals like magnesium, potassium and iron. Being close to the natural skin’s sebum, meadowfoam seed oil is easily absorbed and penetrates deep into the skin. High levels of antioxidants help to fight off the signs of aging like lines and wrinkles. Its long-chain fatty acids have a pronounced moisture- retaining effect, as they mantle the skin without sealing it.
