An anti-age­ing trio

Herworld (Singapore) - - BEAUTY -

ef­fec­tive when it pen­e­trates – prefer­ably deeply – into the skin rather than just sit on the sur­face of it, the brand put its ef­fort into cre­at­ing prod­ucts with tex­tures de­signed to op­ti­mise their ab­sorp­tion. And so three new anti-age­ing treat­ment essences – Multi-ac­tive Treat­ment Essence, Ex­tra-rm­ing Treat­ment Essence and Su­per Restora­tive Treat­ment Essence – are born. All are de­signed to soften the skin so it can bet­ter ab­sorb the ac­tives with anti-age­ing prop­er­ties, says Marie-He­lene Lair, sci­entic com­mu­ni­ca­tions di­rec­tor at Clar­ins.

She adds: “[The bot­tles are colour-coded and each prod­uct is for­mu­lated] to work syn­er­gis­ti­cally with its cor­re­spond­ing range. For in­stance, the Multi-ac­tive Treat­ment Essence is per­fect when paired with Multi-ac­tive creams.”

Even though the essences are meant to be ap­plied be­fore a serum, Marie-He­lene tells me that they are not sub­sti­tutes for your tra­di­tional ton­ers. They don’t pos­sess the cleans­ing prop­er­ties of the lat­ter, “so al­ways use a toner be­fore­hand to max­imise the ef­fi­cacy of your regime”.

Fun fact: These essences also take a leaf, so to speak, from the power of ow­ers. Ges­tur­ing at the green­ery around us, Marie-He­lene says this “bio-in­spi­ra­tion” is part of the brand’s com­mit­ment to beauty via botany.

To il­lus­trate, she shares that the brand has “poured much re­search into the re­mark­able re­silience of the puer­aria lo­bata vine from China and Ja­pan, which is of­ten called a pi­o­neer plant for be­ing the rst ora to bounce back from a for­est re. We’ve since har­nessed the vine’s vi­tal­ity and col­la­gen-syn­the­sis­ing po­ten­tial, [us­ing its ex­tracts in our] Su­per Restora­tive Treat­ment Essence.”

Here, more on each plant-packed essence and how they cater to the specic needs of dif­fer­ent age groups.
