Live cells of the European beech (Fagus sylvatica)

The European beech (Fagus sylvatica) is a tree which grows in Switzerland, also called the “tree of everlasting youth”. It got this name because it can live up to 250 years old, but its aging stops at 60 years old. The live cells for the SwissGetal products are obtained from its shoots, which form in spring. The shoots are picked by hand under the strict supervision of a botanist, and only from a specific part of the tree, so as not to disturb the balance of nature.


The precious live cells are obtained from the beech tree using a careful biotechnological process, without the addition of chemical products or solvents. These now contain the high-energy active components of the beech shoot.


Integrated into the SwissGetal products, the fresh cells are able to activate the transfer of oxygen into the skin, which stimulates the energy of the skin cell. As a result, the cell functions as a young skin cell once again. This process in turn triggers increased protein synthesis. Through the various processes, the skin is rejuvenated, wrinkles are smoothed and the moisture content of the skin is increased. This biotechnologically derived ingredient is a true fountain of youth for the skin.
