Researchers discover a surprising effect of moss
Suddenly the moment comes when we look at photos and realize that we have become visibly older. The older we get, the faster the clock seems to tick. One thing is certain. Time cannot be turned back, but if you act in time, you can slow down skin aging considerably.
Over 100,000 women even had hyaluronic acid injected last year. However, the risk is often underestimated. The news that researchers have now discovered moss in the fight against premature skin aging and wrinkles is all the more pleasing.
Beware of hyaluronic acid
Hyaluron made from chickens is often used. The problem: hyaluronic acid in creams can hardly be absorbed by the skin. Most users are disappointed with the effect.
Hyaluron is injected better. But beware! There are no strict guidelines as to who may inject hyaluronic acid. Every doctor and non-medical practitioner can put on the injection and earn money from the hype. If a nerve is hit, you can go blind or die off part of your face.
Another disadvantage of plumping agents is that the skin becomes tighter, like an inflated balloon. If the effect wears off, the skin slacks and wears out again.
Moss as an alternative?
To prevent wrinkles, we need to understand the cause of wrinkles. Only 30% of wrinkles are genetic. Approximately 70% of wrinkling is due to external influences.
External influences include air pollution, make-up, frequent washing and improper care. Accordingly, the skin on the face is particularly affected by wrinkles.
In order to prevent wrinkles on the skin, the skin must be resistant to external influences. Researchers have now recognized that the skin’s resilience can be optimized with moss.
This is how moss works
“Mosses are one of the most resilient plants on our planet. Mosses even survived the Ice Age in the age of the dinosaurs. We took advantage of this property to develop a new ointment.” Says research director Dr. Sable.

In vitro studies have shown that the active ingredient produced in this way can optimize the resistance of the skin cells. This is also known as the moss effect. In this way, the vitality of the cell nucleus can be maintained. The active moss ointment from Evertz Pharma GmbH, based in Frankfurt, was created from these findings.
Active moss ointment from the pharmacy
After three years of development, the Biovolen active moss ointment (PZN- 16135179) is now available in pharmacies. A user report that she has already tried countless creams without success. “It feels like Βotox . With the moss ointment, I was able to significantly reduce the wrinkles in the eye area after a few weeks.” (Nadia H.)*
The independent test institute DermaConsult also gave the ointment a very good test result. The application is harmless and it is suitable as a daily face cream for dry skin. It is quickly absorbed, non-greasy and leaves a long-lasting velvety feeling.
The active moss ointment is manufactured by Evertz Pharma GmbH in Germany and is considered a milestone in research. The manufacturer attaches particular importance to raw materials of organic quality. This makes the ointment particularly popular with health-conscious women such as presenter Birgit Schrowange . She acts as a brand ambassador for the ointment.
