Arnica montana is an indigenous Latin name growing 1 to 2 feet high with vivid, daisy-like yellow flowers that occur in July and August. It is found on the humid, grassy highlands in northern and central Europe and Siberia's mountains and mountains. It is also sparsely distributed in the north-west of the USA. Mountain daisy, leopard bane, and mountain tobacco are the more common names for Arnica. Arnica may either be used on unbroken skin as an ointment, gel or cream or taken internally when homeopathically diluted.

Caffeine has anti-inflammatory effects. In rosacea sufferers, it may also decrease the presence of redness as it constricts blood vessels, leading to less flushing.
Calcium PCA is physiological vector of calcium for skin strengthening, which is a key component of skin’s natural moisturizing factor, or NMF. The NMF plays a role in keeping skin’s barrier healthy and intact.
Calcium plays a critical role in skin, influencing how new cells are formed and how they move from the lower layer (dermis) to the surface (epidermis). Within skin’s layers, calcium serves to orchestrate many aspects of maintenance and repair.
Topically, calcium PCA helps for the reactivation of cellular cohesion and intensive restoration of the epidermis. It also helps with the preservation of dermal fiber degradation to keep younger looking skin..
