What if the future of skin luminosity lied within enzyme science?

Millions of women around the world rely upon Lancôme’s legacy of pushing boundaries and pursuing new solutions to empower them with flawless skin. As Lancôme reviews 2020 and sets its sight on 2021, we look to the future and recognize a new ideal: skin luminosity. The key to luminosity is unlocked by enzyme science. With the launch of Clarifique Refining Dual Essence dedicated to skin luminosity, Lancôme opens an exciting new chapter for skincare, but not by chance.

30 Years of Research

Always looking ahead, Lancôme saw the future of skincare long ago and set out to pioneer this new frontier of skin luminosity. Recognizing the inherent link between enzymes and skin quality, Lancôme has dedicated 30 years of research to studying enzymes and their skincare potential. This relentless research led to the discovery of new epidermal enzymes resulting in 13 new patents and 113 international publications. Once again, Lancôme’s scientific excellence has led to its success in skincare.

The Power of Enzymes

Enzymes are as story as old as earth itself. As biological accelerators, they speed up biochemical reactions by providing alternative pathways, thereby consuming less energy. They are the perfect example of sustainability in that they are recyclable. At optimal temperature, hydration levels, pH, and concentration, their topical potential is amplified. Lancôme delicately sources these precious enzymes from a precious vegetal pearl: French Beech Buds. This organic and renewable source is known as the “forever young tree” and its enzymes are potented with green science by Lancôme to be leveraged as skincare ingredients.

Skin Luminosity Unlocked

Dual Essence’s pioneering bi-phase formula is a combination of two skin essences perfectly blended by shaking the bottle thanks to the exclusive patented whisk. Once in the skin, these epidermal enzymes regulate various biological functions involved in skin luminosity. First, they aid in desquamation, eliminating dead cells leading to a smoother skin surface with optimal light reflection, improving the overall appearance of skin tone. Furthermore, these enzymes unlock diverse natural moisturizing factors, leading to optimized skin hydration. Lastly, they help epidermal regeneration for a stronger epidermis and improved skin protection and resilience.

So what does skin luminosity with Clarifique Refining Dual Essence ’s pioneering bi-phase formula is a combination of two skin essences perfectly blended by shaking the bottle. This perfect blending is thanks yet another innovation from Lancôme; the exclusive patented whisk. Our innovative bi-phase essence is made of 97% Clear Facial Essence with French beech bud extract, Vitamin Cg, and a blend of Glycolic Acid and Salicylic Acid to gently exfoliate and purify for clear skin. Plus, 3% Lipidic Enriched Essence with Grapeseed Oil, rich in omega-6 fatty acids to reinforce the skin barrier and lock in moisture. While these may just seem like a list of skincare ingredients that can be found in moisturizers and cleansers, these are in fact the best salicylic acid and glycolic acid ratios for your skin. Added to this scientific ratio, Lancôme is taking advantage of the benefits from Vitamin C and adapting it to be more gentle on your sensitive skin in the form of Vitamin Cg or Ascorbyl Glucoside. Combining these innovative ingredients, the results begin to stand out.

So what does skin luminosity with Clarifique Refining Dual Essence look like? In just 4 weeks, Clarifique is clinically proven to deliver these results: skin is 31% more radiant with 12% more even tone, and skin texture is 25% smoother and 33% softer. The newly plumped and hydrated skin minimizes the appearance of an uneven skin tone and irregularities in skin texture. Get soft to touch, replenished beneath the surface, and unmistakably radiant skin all around.
