Originally a native species of the Arctic regions, Rhodiola also grows in high mountainous areas such as the Alps and the Pyrenees. Because it grows in relatively harsh conditions it has been classed by botanists as an adaptogen due to its ability to resist environmental stresses such as extreme temperature changes, high UV levels and high winds. Rhodiola is a main botanic of many traditional medicines originating from eastern Europe.
It’s evolution as an adaptogen means Rhodiola is composed of many constituents that help the skin fight the stresses from everyday environmental exposure. It is rich in antioxidants, phenolic compounds and proanthocyanidins. These are also found in grape seed, bilberry, green tea and cinnamon and will help protect from damaging oxidation. And Rhodiola is believed to transfer it’s abilities to resist stress to the skin from pollution, UV rays and temperature fluctuations.
