16 How does organic harungana extract from Madagascar work to fix loss of density?

How does organic harungana extract from Madagascar work to fix loss of density?

As a healing tree with powerful regenerating benefits, harungana promotes reforestation by propagating on barren land in Madagascar and Africa. Local communities use the leaves in traditional medicine as an antiseptic and a remedy to heal wounds. In cosmetics, the extract helps promote collagen synthesis to firm up and replenish the skin. Clarins Lab uses certified organic fair-trade harungana leaves grown and harvested according to practices that promote human rights and fair working conditions. The leaves are picked and dried by the residents of a village called Joffreville in northern Madagascar with support from the local Jardins du Monde team.

The benefits of harungana are found in the entire Super Restorative line of products.

17 How can I tell if you have mature skin?

With age, your skin becomes duller, the complexion loses its even, rosy tone, and the healthy glow is gone.

These three aspects of radiance disappear after the age of 60. Your skin dries out and lacks moisture and suppleness. Dark spots begin to appear. To fully restore your skin’s glow, it needs more nourishment with a daily skincare routine rich in the vital nutrients that healthy skin requires.

18 Why does mature skin lose luminosity?

Why does mature skin lose luminosity?

With age, the aging fibroblast impedes the way the micronutrient system - or the essential “anti-aging system”- works. Your complexion becomes dull and extremely dry. The skin is increasingly susceptible to pigmentation issues and lacks luster. The loss of lipids strips your skin of a protective barrier. Without these defenses, it looks less luminous and loses that healthy glow. It is undernourished.

19 How do you restore a glow to undernourished skin?

How do you restore a glow to undernourished skin?

Help your skin regain vitality with a line of skincare treatment called Nutri-Lumière.

This range of cosmetics is made for skin that has been weakened with age. It strengthens and protects it every day from damage caused by the environment, the sun and pollution. It contains a revitalizing duo of chestnut extract and escin that better nourishes and hydrates the skin, to make it more supple. It appears smoother, denser, and plumper. The complexion becomes uniform and more luminous. Radiant.

20 When it comes to radiance, what combination of botanical extracts is beneficial?

When it comes to radiance, what combination of botanical extracts is beneficial?

Clarins Research combines organic horse chestnut extract and escin (an active molecule in the fruit). They are known for their actions on the micronutrient system. Thanks to this unique blend, full radiance returns to the skin. Now that the skin is supple and hydrated, wakame extract helps strengthen its barrier function and fortifies it. Leaf of life extract reactivates its ability to self-hydrate. Lastly, desert date extract reduces dullness and aids in creating an evenly toned radiant complexion.
