LANCOME Absolue L’Extrait is being touted as a new miracle product promise. A regenerating cream, it contains 2 million rose stem cells. Stem cells are biological cells, found in any living organism, that take care of the normal functioning of an organism’s system, while repairing and replenishing. The rose stem cells in Absolue L’Extrait are used to enhance the natural barrier of the skin, protecting it against UV rays and pollution, and boosting the regeneration of the skin. Suitable for all ages, and for application to face, eye area, hands, and chest, Absolue L’Extrait is launching this month across Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, and the US in June.
SHISEIDEO Intensive Eye Contour Cream is the latest in the Benefiance WrinkleResist 24 range. The five types of eye problem areas include corner crinkling, under eye wrinkles, lid creases, crows feet, and underpuff lines. After researching more than 20,000 ingredients, Shiseido discovered Mukurossi, a plant extract that prevents the skin from forming wrinkles, while reducing the advance stage of lines by 50%. Combining Shiseido’s amino acid gel emulsification technology with patented Super Bio-Hyaluronic Acid, and Hydroxyproline (found naturally in collagen), and burnet extract, Intensive Eye Contour cream helps to hydrate and support the delicate eye area. Available from selected stockists this month. www.shiseido.com
ESTEE LAUDER‘s new anti-aging collection, Re-Nutriv Re-Creation, comprises two day and night rituals for the face and eye area: a Face Creme; a Night Serum; an Eye Balm; and a Night Eye Serum. Formulated from resources within the Antarctic Ocean, a key component is the sustainably cultivated Glacial BioExtract™, and a unique protein that allows life to thrive in otherwise impossible conditions. The Glacial Bio-Extract™ is said to strengthen and sustain skin in challenging conditions, and it is proven to support skin’s natural elastin. A potent anti-irritant, it also helps optimise hydration levels, and is complemented by a high concentration of Life Re-Newing Molecules™, which are claimed to help repair, recharge and restore the skin. Scented with a soothing fragrance of green floral notes, key ingredients include water lotus, hyacinth, cyclamen, night blooming orchid, tiger lily, and sandalwood. www.esteelauder.com
