THE WHITENING HEROES
TXC (Tranexamix Acid Cetyl Ester) Molecule
The charm behind Le Blanc: Chanel’s exclusive whitening active ingredient.
WHAT IT IS The TXC molecule was first released in 2011, after nine years of research. It was created to target factors responsible for the chain reaction of melanin production in all skin layers. It progressively releases its power for 12 hours when in contact with skin cells’ enzymes to reduce existing dark spots and limit the formation of new ones.
POWER UP Three years of additional research have resulted in the unveiling of a new power behind the TXC molecule. Did you know that even when your skin is not exposed to the sun, it still faces many assaults that put it in a constant state of stress? This causes melanocytes (the cells that produce melanin) to flare up and accelerate in production. In Le Blanc, the TXC molecule is able to counteract this tension by creating a protective zone around melanocytes. This creates calmness and control, thus limiting the overproduction of melanin so that skin is eventually brightened and evened out.
2-Year Pearl Extract
Putting the glow back into your skin.
WHAT IT IS Chanel Research selected the Akoya pearl from Japan, a pearl known for its exceptional luster, delicate colour, and perfectly smooth surface, and cultivates it for two years in Uwajima on the western coast of Japan to reach its prime maturity for the highest quality. Once done, the pearl not only reveals incredible luminosity but also contains an exceptional amount of active moisturising molecules.
POWER UP In Le Blanc, the 2-Year Pearl Extract works on the evenness of your complexion and the quality of your skin. Its glycine-rich composition hydrates skin and traps water inside for longer action. As a result, skin’s barrier function is reinforced to activate cell renewal. At the same time, this extract helps to prevent skin from becoming dull and yellow so that it remains fair and bright always.
One Day Flower
A rare ingredient with precious powers.
What It Is The One Day Flower blossoms at dawn and fades at dusk. It is a potent natural antioxidant that is precious to Chanel for its boost in whitening effects.
Power Up Don’t be misled by this flower’s fragility. The One Day Flower supports the effect of Le Blanc’s 2-Year Pearl Extract by preventing skin from turning dull. It also amplifies Le Blanc’s luminous effect on the skin surface.
