“Imagine the bloom of youth regained… Imagine an anti-ageing cream so advanced and so natural, it mimics the skin’s own function, transforming the complexion in just two weeks…”
In 2003, Elemis
caused a stir by launching the revolutionary Pro-Collagen Marine Cream, clinically proven to reduce the depth of wrinkles by 19% and increase long-term hydration by 10% after only 15 days.
The first product to launch in the NEW Anti-Ageing range has become an international best seller and a celebrity favourite due to the outstanding results it delivers to the skin - especially when combined with the Elemis Pro-Collagen Japanese Silk Booster Facial. In light of the global success, Elemis has launched a limited edition 30ml travel size - perfect for handbags and holidays.
Pro-Collagen Marine Cream works to mimic the skins own function and transform the complexion in just two weeks. Harnessing the uniquely groundbreaking natural ingredient Padina Pavonica, with the very latest scientific research, this dynamic anti-ageing cream increases skin elasticity, suppleness, firmness and hydration levels whilst offering additional support.
Elemis were first introduced to the benefits of Padina Pavonica by a leading French doctor who had been researching the benefits of this algae for 10 years. The unique marine extract was incorporated in to the Absolute Booster Serum, which is used to impregnate the silk compress used in the highly acclaimed Elemis Pro-Collagen Japanese Silk Booster Facial.
The positive feedback and visible results led the team to believe that Padina Pavonica could be the breakthrough ingredient they had been looking for. A high level of the extract was added to a base and formulated before undergoing a series of independent trials. Three years of development came to fruition when the Pro-Collagen Marine Cream received phenomenal independent clinical trial results that proved it did help to defy the ageing process.
On application, this high-tech cream penetrates the skin’s layers at a deeper level, moisturising the cells and increasing hydration by 10%. The cream also works on smoothing the skin’s surface, providing an accelerated lifting effect through increased collagen support and reducing the depth of wrinkles by 19%. After 15 days the skin takes on a smoother, plumper more youthful appearance.
The unique combination of the technology of increased cell communication using Padina Pavonica combined with the potent therapeutic properties of active ingredients including Porphyridum Seaweed, Chlorella Seaweed, Absolutes of Mimosa and Rose and Gingko Biloba Liposomes (renowned for their free radical protection and anti-ageing properties) has produced an anti-ageing product unsurpassed in results, quality and innovation.
Padina Pavonica - a fan shaped brown algae, hand picked daily by scuba divers from the temperate waters of Malta is central to the cream’s activity. The purified extract of this intelligent algae, not only helps the skin’s metabolism, but it stimulates the synthesis of Glycosaminoglucan molecules (GAGs) at the cellular level. These hydrophilic (water attracting) 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 cellular regeneration, thereby speeding up the ageing process.
Stimulating the production of GAGs increases cellular communication and renewal, improving the skin’s defence mechanisms against the aggressions associated with normal day-to-day activities. Skin cells appear radically transformed back to being almost as good as new.
