Product News: Clarins Launches Double Serum Complete Age Concentrate

I love Clarins products, and the fact that their products are based on plant based ingredients. And starting to see the signs of ageing, I was excited that I discovered that Clarins is now launching the Double Serum Complete Age Concentrate.

Clarins Double Serum® is the complete age control concentrate, the essential formula for all women from the age of 25. Its new formula, a result of the very latest advances of Clarins Research, combines the 20 most powerful anti-ageing plant extracts to deliver a proven, targeted action on the five vital functions on which skin’s youthful appearance depends.
The only treatment that reactivates skin’s five vital functions on which skins vitality depends:

1. Hydration – boosts hydration by +75% up to four hours after application, delaying the appearance of wrinkles and maintaining skin’s softness and comfort.

2. Nutrition – increases the speed at which nutrients penetrate the skin’s cells, restoring suppleness.
3. Oxygenation – improves cell oxygenation. Skin regains radiance.

4. Protection – stimulates the activity of two genes involved in skin protection. Protects against premature ageing.

5. Regeneration – boosts production of collagen and glycosaminoglycan’s. Maintains skin’s firm, smooth, dense appearance.
By helping to reactivate these essential functions, Double Serum is naturally the fundamental treatment for all skin types from the first signs of ageing.
Double Serum achieves what a single formula cannot: it provides skin cells with an optimum concentration of the best age control ingredients. This performance is made possible by the unique [Hydric + Lipidic System]. Two separate phases, presented in side-by-side vials, enable the otherwise impossible combination of water and oil soluble ingredients with no risk of incompatibility or instability, and without recourse to emulsifiers. The result is an exceptional rapid action.

Clarins researchers mobilised all the resources of science to uncover the potential of hundreds of extracts of fruit, seeds, leaves, roots and sap. This highly disciplined approach culminated in the selection of 20 extracts for their exceptional performance on the skin’s five vital functions. At the heart of this "reserve of vitality," which only the double formula could contain is, cangzhu extract.

Derived from a plant known for centuries to Chinese pharmacopoeia, a specific cangzhu extract was developed for Clarins. It stimulates G protein, a key protein of cell membranes, which amplifies the message, sent to cells by the formula’s active ingredients. Cangzhu extract thus helps to boost significantly the efficacy of the other plant extracts contained in Double Serum.

The 20 plant extracts rigorously selected by Clarins Research for their targeted performance, are added to further powerful ingredients that are close to the skin’s own natural components: hyaluronic acid with double molecular weight and phytoshingosine, both obtained by biotechnology.

The key ingredients in the Double Serum used for hydration are burdock extract, organic marshmallow extract and katafray bark extract help the stimulation of the skin’s natural moisturising factors and help with moisture retention in the dermis and epidermis.

For nutrition, the key ingredients used are kiwi fruit extracts, organic perilla oil and organic macadamia oil, work to improve cell nutrition and the reinforcement of the lipidic cement.

To oxygenate the skin, the ingredients used are maritime pine extract, organic rosehip oil and arnica extract target improved cell oxygenation and the stimulation of ATP production.

To offer protection to the skin, the key ingredients used are organic green tea extract, pistachio tree extract, organic quinoa extract and oxydendron extract, work on the neutralisation of free radicals and the reinforcement of the skin barrier.

And finally, to regenerate the skin, the key ingredients used are organic green banana extract, lemon thyme extract, unsaponifiables of avocado and hop extract, Phytosphingosine, organic oat sugars, survixyl IS™ and bocoa, all work to preserve epidermal renewal potential, the reinforcement of dermal network fibres and surface tightening.

The new Clarins Double Serum available for a RRP of $90.00, from March 4, 2013 from leading department stores, select pharmacies and retails specialists, and online at Adore Beauty.

Well I was so lucky to get asked to trial this new wonder serum, and so far my skin is loving it… but as always, I will wait with my final verdict until I have used it for a little longer, so stay tuned for my full review.
