Monroc introduces the well-being edelweiss of Olga Casanova

Edelweiss of Olga Casanova are famous here, together with her staff she created a wonderful botanical garden in Val di Sole where apart from edelweiss are cultivated other medicinal plants like lemon balm, cornflower, mallow, yarrow and mint. Moreover plants for food use such as “radicchio dell’orso” and mountain asparagus, both with an intense and pleasant taste.

But we don’t speak just about cultivation, this certified-organic farm in fact created a cosmetic-herbal line based on the extracts of these precious plants. The effectiveness of these products is given by the fact that the plants are harvested only during the days of xx and brought by the same evening to the lab to extract the active substances from the fresh flower.  

The Edelweiss line is for sure the diamond point of this farm. This rare flower, which grows freely at altitude, is known for its antioxidant properties; the flavonoids contained fight the free radical and are excellent adjuvants for the skin health. The Olga Casanova line is the only one xxx.
