Dimethicone

Dimethicone

Dimethicone prevents water loss by forming a hydrating layer on the skin.

It creates a subtle skin glow and feels smooth and silky to touch. It provides a significant amount of emollience and coverage to the skin, without adding any heaviness. It also acts a mild water repellent by forming a protective barrier on the skin, and can fill in fine lines/wrinkles on the face, giving it a temporary “plump” look.

It has a scientific rating of ‘non-comedogenic’ which means it should not cause spots.

Dimethicone can be found in Iconic Youth Serum™, Youth Preservation Moisturiser™SPF20, Overnight Recharge™ Night Cream, Intensely Youthful Eye Cream™ and Hydrate & Protect™ Hand Cream.

 

Elastin

Elastin

Elastin is a protein, primarily composed of amino acids, that give skin it’s ‘bounce’. The amount of elastin in the skin, reaches its peak production in early adulthood, after which production and skin’s ability to produce and store elastin, slowly declines. Age and other factors like air pollution or direct sunlight will greatly affect elastin too.

We formulate using ingredients that stimulate the skin’s Elastin production and synthesis which revitalises and hydrates, to reduce the effects of aging.

Elastin synthesising ingredients can be found in Overnight Recharge Night Cream™, Iconic Youth Serum™, and Intensely Youthful Eye Cream™.

 

EPIDERMOSIL

EPIDERMOSIL

EPIDERMOSIL is a synergistic combination of low molecular weight Hyaluronic and Silicium. Silicium is a natural component of the skin that ensures integrity of the skin’s architecture. As we age, the amount of Silicium in skin decreases, leading to the collapse of the skin’s architecture and the formation of wrinkles. This combination offers improved penetration and enhances the bioavailability of Hyaluronic Acid. Deep wrinkles are reduced, skin firmness and elasticity is improved.

EPIDERMOSIL can be found in Lip Line Restoration Treatment

 

Eusolex® UV-Pearls™

Eusolex® UV-Pearls™

Mineral UV filters, entrapped in micro-capsules, containing sun protection agents. They reduce dermal uptake and prevent skin damage. Encapsulation eliminates the distribution of the organic filter in the skin layers.

Eusolex® UV-Pearls™ can be found in Youth Preservation Moisturiser™SPF20 & Hydrate & Protect™ Hand Cream.

Gatuline® In-Tense

Gatuline® In-Tense

Gatuline® In-Tense contains Spilanthes Acmella. It is a concentrated firming and wrinkle smoothing active ingredient. It acts on the skins natural lifting properties, helping to strengthen and support the collagen network, to restore skin density and improve skin firmness.

It targets cellular dynamism to reinforce the dermis architecture and fight the signs of age. By doing so, skin density and firmness are then rapidly enhanced, leading to a reduction in skin roughness.
