Elemis Creates a New Era in Anti-Ageing

28th Mar 2003

Elemis has launched its revolutionary, Pro-Collagen Marine Cream anti-ageing skincare, at the Professional Spa Convention in London. The companyå‘s claim that the new formula will dramatically improve skin elasticity, hydration levels and tone, is backed by some impressive clinical proof.

The Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream formulation is based on the proven science of Padina Pavonica algae, a dynamic anti-ageing cream which has been especially developed to cater for all skin types in need of additional support. Evidence shows that it will reduce the depth of wrinkles by 19 percent and increase moisturisation by 10 percent.

Clinically proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, tests have revealed amazing results after just 15 days, with skin taking on a plumper, more youthful appearance. Drawing its powerful anti-ageing properties from the wealth of the sea, this highly supportive cream uses a synergy of seaweeds, Absolutes and Gingko Biloba to manipulate the function of the skin cells and make them perform as if they were 20 years old again. 


The Formulation

Central to the cream’s activity is Padina Pavonica, a fan-shaped brown algae, hand-picked daily by scuba divers from the temperate waters of the Mediterranean and left to dry under the sun’s rays.
The purified extract of this intelligent algae stimulates the production of Glycosaminoglucan molecules (GAGs). These highly hydrophilic molecules are responsible for the moisturising, and thus for the firmness and elasticity, of the skin. Skin cells produce GAGs daily, however, ageing slows down and decreases this function, thereby speeding up the ageing process.


By reinforcing the production of GAGs, increased cell communication and renewal can be achieved, improving the skin’s defence mechanisms against the aggressions associated with normal day-to-day activities. Skin cells are radically transformed to almost as good as new. Results show a dramatic improvement over an eight-day application using Padina Pavonica on wrinkle prone skin.

Porphyridum Seaweed is a unicellular algae, rich in moisturising and restructuring essential fatty acids, amino acids, Vitamins B1, B2, B12, C and E, and free radical scavengers, which help to eliminate the toxic layer that causes cell degeneration.
Chlorella Seaweed contains amino acids and proteins that are responsible for slowing down the deterioration of collagen and elastin, excellent for fighting against ageing, wrinkles and puffiness.

Absolutes, is the highest active raw material to be extracted from a plant, which stimulate cell renewal and repair. The dynamic action of Mimosa and Rose Absolutes tones, hydrates and relaxes the skin as well as introducing an incredible aroma.

The vegetable-based Gingko Biloba Liposomes are renowned for their free radical and anti-ageing properties, these are designed to encapsulate ingredient activity and transport it to a cellular level.

Elemis has continued to use the finest raw materials in a synergy designed to have one dynamic action on the skin, placing this synergy into an active base to support the whole action of the cream.


Elemis Japanese Silk Booster Facial

The Elemis Japanese Silk Booster Facial was the first of its kind to use natural Japanese Silk Protein, combined with pure plant Phytoamine Biocomplexes and Padina Pavonica Algae. Targeted to mature skins, it helps to lift and firm the skin, producing immediate results beyond question. Elemis has re-created these amazing anti-ageing effects in a homecare product that continues the benefits of the facial between visits.
