A world-renowned dermatologist has come up with a luxury cream that goes beyond hydrating the skin by energising cells.
SKINCARE companies are always trying to outdo themselves, topping their last offering with an even newer and better formula.
Well, renowned celebrity dermatologist Dr Fredric Brandt has come up with a creme de la creme product in his Time Arrest skincare collection that is claimed to lift, firm, tighten and restore sagging ageing skin.
The Time Arrest range contains the Age Reversing Platinum Technology, a skincare system touted to counteract the loss of elasticity and firmness associated with maturing skin. This innovative platinum delivery system works like your skin’s own GPS (global positioning system), carrying active ingredients deeper into the skin, directly targeting problem areas to restore the skin’s structure and give a more youthful appearance.
Now with the new Time Arrest Crème DeLUXE, the formula is claimed to go beyond hydrating the skin – it energises cells with oxygen, improves radiance, texture and tone, and lifts and tightens skin while protecting valuable stem cells from UV radiation and other stressors, to delay the ageing process.
The luxurious antiageing cream is enriched with grape stem cells, silpearls, and tourmaline, and uses a nano-particle technology to deliver a unique combination of peptides, silanols and precious metals into the deepest layers of the epidermis to help one achieve a luminous, youthful-looking complexion.
“Time Arrest represents a quantum leap in the way we’re able to deliver active anti-ageing ingredients into the skin,” said Dr Brandt in a press release.
“The grape stem cell comes from a rare red-flesh grape that is tolerant to strong UV radiation, due to its high content of Anthocyanins. This protects stem cells in the skin against UV radiation and other stress factors, and prolongs the vitality of stem cells to delay the ageing process,” said Stephane Colleu, Dr Brandt’s sales director for Europe, Asia, Middle East, South Africa and Australia, who was in Kuala Lumpur recently for the launch of the product. (Anthocyanins are powerful antioxidants and free radical scavengers that act as a sunscreen by absorbing UV radiation.)
Silpearls are actually silanol and pearl powder, inspired by Chinese beauty rituals to brighten skin tone. It comprises 16 essential amino acids, proteins, polysaccharides and minerals which are supposed to increase cell metabolism and help maintain hydration by binding water molecules into spheres, locking moisture into the skin.
“It also improves collagen production, smoothes wrinkles and increases the skin’s radiance and luminosity. In the long term, it provides much needed hydration for mature skin and prevents moisture loss,” added Colleu, who was instrumental in leading the company into many international markets, including the launch of Dr Brandt skincare brand in France in 2005.
“Tourmaline, as you know, is a fine gem that’s often seen on jewellery. Now, people have discovered that it’s useful in skincare as well as it contains energising crystals that increase microcirculation. It is good for improving the skin’s vitality and promoting a healthy, glowing complexion.”
The creme also contains Platinum Heptapeptide and Mamaku essence, a specialised peptide and fern extract, claimed to improve the synthesis of collagen and cell division. This ultimately works to lift, firm and tighten the skin.
It is to be applied on cleansed skin and can be used both morning and night.
The new deLUXE creme complements the rest of the Stephane Colleu with the new Dr Brandt Time Arrest Creme DeLUXE. range, which includes the new time arrest crème, eye serum and face fluid. The creme is an ultra hydrating treatment that firms and restructures skin’s architecture, improves elasticity and helps prevent sagging; the eye serum is a concentrated firming serum formulated claimed to improve the structure and density of the delicate eye tissue to provide a more “lifted” appearance; and the face fluid works to reinforce the skin’s structure and strengthen capillary support, providing volume and lift for a more youthful appearance. Both the laser tight and neck cream formulae have been updated to include the Age Reversing Platinum Technology.
Dr Brandt’s skincare highperformance products are touted to offer targeted treatments without the need for a prescription, combining the dermatologist’s scientific knowledge and clinical expertise with active botanicals. n Prices range from RM250 to RM799. Available at Ken’s Apothecary Empire Shopping Gallery Subang, Selangor, and Dr Brandt store in Bangsar Shopping Centre, Kuala Lumpur.
