Forever Young with Reishi
Japanese cosmetics company Menard Cosmetic has unveiled an exclusive line of skin care products that take advantage of the near-miraculous effect Asian reishi mushrooms have on human skin. The reishi extracts that form the basis of the new Embellir line directly target cells in the skin. The black reishi extract prevents unnecessary metabolites from accumulating in the cells, helping them remain clean inside. It also slows down the rate at which telomeres shorten in chromosomes, which is an indicator of genetic aging. In this way, the extract extends the lifespan of individual cells.
Embellirís red reishi extract repairs genetic damage caused by UV rays and free radicals. It also helps cells produce energy and divide so that new ones can appear in the skin. The extract also seals capillaries and regulates sebum secretion.
The combined force of the two reishi mushroom species brings comprehensive nourishing to the skin and restores its youthful look. The Embellir line revitalizes vanishing cells and stimulates blood circulation, leaving the skin moisturized, renewed and rejuvenated.
The Embellir products ooze a distinctive fragrance that combines frankincense, myrrh and Bulgarian rose. The fragrance adds to the cosmeticsí nourishing effect, as its aromatherapeutic properties help prevent genetic damage and enhance the genesí capacity to repair.
The Embellir line consists of six products, including the Embellir Refresh Massage facial mask, a face washing foam called Embellir Washing, the Embellir Liquid moisturizing emulsion, the Embellir Extract repair serum, the SPF 15 Embellir Day Cream to moisturize and protect the skin, and a regenerative and nourishing Embellir Night Cream.
Energy Shot Right in the Skin
Swiss luxury cosmetics brand Valmont has an innovative skin care product out, called DETO2X Cream. Designed specifically for the skin exposed to the hazards of city life, this cream with the texture of a light mousse forms a bubbly, protective layer on the skin surface by absorbing atmospheric oxygen. Like a delicate veil pulled over facial skin, the light foam delivers an oxygenated breath of life to the epidermis. DETO2X owes its powerful effect to a combination of natural ingredients with cutting-edge technology. The light DETO2X formula features a unique detoxifying complex of a perfluorocarbon derivative and a nasturtium extract to release oxygen into cells located deep inside the skin. It also removes excessive amounts of carbon dioxide that accumulates in cells due to air pollution. Liposomes and apple stem cells contained in the cream help cells regenerate by stimulating the epidermal growth factor (EGF).
