Good things come in threes like La Prairie’s Cel­lu­lar Power trio

The del­i­cate bal­ance be­tween free rad­i­cals and an­tiox­i­dants nat­u­rally present in our bod­ies is a hard one to man­age – al­most im­pos­si­ble, in fact, what with to­day’s en­vi­ron­men­tal pol­lu­tion. Sk­in­care gi­ants around the world have sought to re­solve this through top­i­cal so­lu­tions, but La Prairie has taken it one step fur­ther by prob­ing deeply into the po­tent, nat­u­ral heal­ing pow­ers of the skin, in­stead.

When La Prairie first launched Cel­lu­lar Power In­fu­sion, the ground­break­ing tech­nol­ogy be­hind its anti-age­ing prow­ess was a sym­bol of real hope for all women. This in­ten­sive four-week treat­ment com­mu­ni­cates with the mi­to­chon­dria un­der our skin, also known as the source from which en­ergy is sent out to revitalise skin tis­sue and pro­tect epi­der­mal stem cells. With this suc­cess came Cel­lu­lar Power Night,g a retinol power pack that aims to re­ju­ve­nate dull com­plex­io­com­plex­ions overnight. What mak­makes it even more unique than com­pet­ing retinol re­gen­er­a­tors is how La Prairie in­jects doses of oxy­gen into the in­gre­di­ent, guar­an­tee­ing that in­tense boost of ra­di­ance upon ap­pli­ca­tion.

With con­tin­ued in­no­va­tion, La Prairie has now dis­cov­ered a new way to reawaken the cells that guard the skin’s nat­u­ral an­tiox­i­dants. The all-new Cel­lu­lar Power Serum truly de­fies con­ven­tional prac­tices of merely fight­ing off free rad­i­cals. Dr. Daniel Stangl, La Prairie’s di­rec­tor of in­no­va­tion and knowl­edge man­age­ment, an­swers all our burn­ing ques­tions about how this rev­o­lu­tion­ary serum com­mu­ni­cates with un­der­ly­ing cells to re­boot and recharge the skin’s first line of de­fence against age­ing.


“Science tells us there are three main de­ter­mi­nants to the way the skin ages: loss of en­ergy; ac­cu­mu­la­tion of molec­u­lar, cel­lu­lar, and tis­sue dam­age; and a de­cline in the skin’s abil­ity to re­pair it­self and fight off free rad­i­cals. Of all th­ese fac­tors, lost en­ergy is the most crit­i­cal, be­cause skin needs en­ergy to live and to thrive. Age­ing and ex­po­sure to en­vi­ron­men­tal stres­sors af­fect the skin’s nat­u­ral an­tiox­i­dant ‘self-de­fence’ net­work, a net­work that is re­spon­si­ble for de­fend­ing the skin against po­ten­tial ox­ida­tive dam­age.”


“Un­til now, we’ve had to rely on top­i­cal an­tiox­i­dants to fight against free rad­i­cals, and ul­ti­mately, against age­ing. This break­through for­mula goes be­yond that. Cel­lu­lar Power Serum works to ac­ti­vate our skin’s an­tiox­i­dant ‘self-de­fence’ sys­tem, which is a nat­u­ral source of pre­ven­ta­tive, restora­tive, and detox­i­fy­ing en­zymes, and pro­vides the skin with the en­ergy it needs to ef­fec­tively com­bat ox­ida­tive stress, act­ing as it would when it was younger.”


“The Cel­lu­lar Power Com­plex iin­cludes Skin Re­newal Pep­tide and Phyto Stem Cell Ex­tract to help main­tain the nat­u­ral epi­der­mal stem cell func­tion; Swiss Snow Al­gae to in­crease the cells’ longevity and coun­ter­act UV stress; and Tis­sue Guid­ance Ma­trix to pro­mote the re­newal of skin tis­sue. In fact, Swiss Snow Al­gae is known to pro­vide na­ture’s most so­phis­ti­cated shield to pro­tect mi­to­chon­dria and its DNA from en­vi­ron­men­tal stress and free rad­i­cals.”

“For the serum, we for­mu­lated a rev­o­lu­tion­ary De­fense-For­ti­fy­ing Com­plex that ac­ti­vates the fad­ing power of our own skin’s de­fence sys­tem. This break­through for­mula is plant-in­fused with pow­er­ful in­gre­di­ents that sup­port and stim­u­late the skin’s an­tiox­i­dant en­zymes and sen­sors, re­boot­ing its in­ter­nal sys­tem to trick skin cells into work­ing at an op­ti­mal level as they did be­fore in their youth­ful prime.”


“Within four to six weeks, the skin’s sur­face will look smoother due to di­min­ished lines and wrin­kles as well as re­stored firm­ness. Skin hydration dra­mat­i­cally in­creases at the deep­est lev­els re­sult­ing in a beau­ti­fully moisturised and brighter com­plex­ion.”
