I walk with my wife Wendela - creator and curator of the pharmacy herbarium - on the high meadows of Monte Rota here in Dobbiaco, and it is she who makes me notice the arnica in full bloom.
This fascinating plant is of traditional use in the alpine world and its properties are certified in the Official Pharmacopoeia. Pharmacy Dobbiaco has chosen to use the dry extract of this flower, which is up to 300 times more effective than the tincture. This is why our products are stronger. That's why they call us the "Arnica Pharmacy".
On my bike rides on mountain trails, along cool streams, my gaze sweeps over the herbs I know well and use in my supplements.
When I am told that the mallow syrup for the bronchi works better than others, that with the feverfew the cervical is passed, I find confirmation both of my studies and of the traditional treatments of the Alpine populations, who have always used natural remedies.
My mother Mariagrazia began, who passionately wanted to prepare effective treatments for the skin care of mountain people. Skin made drier and more sensitive by atmospheric agents and the sun. It was clear: the products had to have a high concentration of natural active ingredients, be hypoallergenic and possibly unscented. And so, thanks to ours
experience and the use of organic extracts of edelweiss, imperatoria and mallow, we have created a cosmetic line of the highest quality.
It is quite simple to take care of healthy skin. Much changes if the skin dries up, cracks, becomes sensitive to the point of being damaged.
For some time we have created a line dedicated to problematic skin. It is characterized by hypoallergenic formulations, the absence of perfume and a high concentration of soothing and moisturizing active ingredients. Our aim is therefore to restore its intact and healthy appearance to the skin.
I walk on a high altitude path and, on a ridge exposed to the sun, I see an edelweiss. This beautiful flower has developed a sap that protects it from drying out and UV rays. Pharmacy Dobbiaco, wineskin to the filters, adds the extract of this plant to its sunscreens to ensure greater hydration and protection to your skin. Here is the secret of our Dolomite solar products.
AMARO DI DOBBIACO
Only my father Gianangelo could formulate this recipe, invented during his walks in the Dolomites and his outings in the valley on cross-country skis. First graduated in chemistry, then in pharmacy and also an academic of Italian cuisine. This liqueur is the synthesis of a life of study: refined preparation method that optimizes the extraction of the most active and aromatic resins, the best digestive herbs taken from the laboratory of our pharmacy and finally the excellent taste.
Pour it on ice, after a while it changes color slightly:
here is the right time to enjoy it.
