Hyaluronic acid and collagen, natural key ingredients

Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in the dermis. It acts as a super sponge to keep the skin hydrated and toned. 

Collagen is also present in the dermis, and its fibres also help to support the skin. But from the age of thirty onwards, the natural production of hyaluronic acid and collagen decreases. The skin becomes drier, less firm and the first wrinkles appear. At this point, it’s time to opt for skincare products containing key ingredients and anti-ageing formulations that will boost the production of hyaluronic acid and collagen, but also fight against the effects of oxidative stress caused by external factors.

What are the enemies of the skin?

Understanding anti-ageing key ingredients and formulations

Anti-oxidants help fight against oxidative stress caused by pollution, sun or tobacco, which accelerate skin ageing. To limit the effects, vitamins C and E are recommended from the age of thirty: they neutralise free radicals and effectively preserve the skin. 
Hyaluronic acid is the ideal key ingredient to correct the loss of firmness and deeper wrinkles that appear from the age of forty onwards. It helps to firm and plump the skin, while filling in the wrinkles that have already set in. 
And to help your "mature" skin regain density, vitality and comfort, use Bakuchiol: this plant-based key ingredient is as effective as retinol and is a powerful cellular restorer. It stimulates both collagen and hyaluronic acid synthesis, and restores your skin's radiance.

How to regain firmness and radiance

You can add nutritional supplements to your anti-ageing care routine.

A course of vitamin C, the anti-oxidant par excellence, will help to increase collagen production. Evening primrose is involved in the regeneration of skin cells and is suitable for slack skin. However, the use of these food supplements is not something to be considered trivial. Don't hesitate to talk to your Healthcare Professional about it and, above all, to focus on food as the main source of your inner beauty. Fresh, seasonal fruit and vegetables are the main reservoirs of antioxidants.

How does an anti-ageing serum work?


The daily application of a serum and a night skincare product will optimise the benefits of your anti-ageing day skincare.



It has become an essential part of anti-ageing skincare rituals. Ultra-concentrated, it acts in a targeted manner (to protect the skin, smooth wrinkles or redefine the jawline) and prepares the skin to receive its anti-ageing skincare products, whose effects are multiplied tenfold.

Night skincare

Did you know that the skin regenerates best at night? So why deprive yourself of night care, with key ingredients and anti-ageing formulations that complement your day care? For example, retinol and its derivatives such as retinaldehyde (one of the most effective anti-ageing ingredients) are found in night care products.
