Finally a skincare product that takes into account long days, short nights and that will protect the skin from harsh pollution but also counter-act dryness from air conditioning, combat fatigue and regain energy! But let me warn you, you are going to be tempted and eager to apply this product every day – especially when you notice the texture of your skin transforming, because it will instantly melt into your skin, literally unleashing a cascade of sensations. Here is all you need to know about the latest in CHANEL skincare:
With a combination of active ingredients at the height of their potential and exceptional textures, HYDRA BEAUTY skincare products do more than just moisturize, protect and illuminate skin: they help skin withstand long days and short nights, protect itself from harsh pollution and counteract the dryness of air conditioning, combat fatigue and regain energy… But the reason women apply them every day with the same eagerness and desire is because of their transforming textures, which instantly melt on skin unleashing a cascade of sensations.
Today, CHANEL Research presents two new hydration, protection and vitality boosters: HYDRA BEAUTY Micro Liquid Essence* and HYDRA BEAUTY Masque de Nuit au Camélia.
HYDRA BEAUTY MICRO LIQUID ESSENCE: R1635
Refining | Energizing | Hydration
In 2015, CHANEL Research inaugurated a new family of skincare products infused with camellia micro-droplets. Thousands of microspheres, calibrated down to the millimeter, to protect the pure active ingredients and deliver intense sensations to skin.
In 2018, CHANEL continues its micro uidic innovations and revolutionizes the cosmetics sector once more with its new liquid skincare product.
HYDRA BEAUTY Micro Liquid Essence combines the moisturizing properties of a skincare water with micro-droplets encapsulating a new energizing active ingredient derived from camellia and brimming with nourishing lipids. Its incredible texture becomes one with skin soaking it in a wave of freshness before enveloping it in a comforting cocoon.
Suspending fine micro-droplets in a jellified liquid solution, ensuring that they are distributed evenly with each application, while maintaining optimal effectiveness and sensoriality… This microfluidic essence overcomes every formulation challenge!
Every bottle holds about 3,000 micro-droplets, each one filled with 50% fresh camellia cell active ingredients! Delicate and evanescent, the micro-droplets protect the active ingredient in its purest form until the moment of application on skin. With this unprecedented formulation, HYDRA BEAUTY Micro Liquid Essence boasts a minimalist composition. A quintessence of skincare, free from alcohol and surfactants, suitable for even the most demanding skin. Almost magical, but assuredly scientific, protected by five patents.
A TIMELESS SIGNATURE: THE CAMELLIA
The favorite flower of Mademoiselle Chanel, the camellia unfurls its extraordinary skincare potential at the heart of the HYDRA BEAUTY range. The star ingredient of the line, the Alba Plena variety is grown in Gaujacq in the southwest of France, in shaders created through CHANEL initiative, following a unique cultivation model. Heat, humidity, shade, protection from the wind: every condition is respected to ensure the camellia’s optimal blooming and to obtain flowers with the highest concentration of active ingredients. Just after blossoming, the precious petals are collected by hand and quickly sent to an extraction center to guarantee extracts with extreme power and freshness. First chosen for its moisturizing benefits, Camellia Alba Plena now reveals a new ultra-energizing extract.
FRESH CAMELLIA CELL MICRO-DROPLETS
A new active ingredient from CHANEL Research, fresh camellia cells are cold- extracted from camellia petals to boost the potential of their incredible energizing power. Dispersed in camellia oil, they demonstrate a particular affinity with the skin owing to their membrane, whose composition is similar to that of skin cells. Like an “injection” of essential nutrients — vitamins, carbohydrates, amino acids and lipids — they refine the skin texture and give incomparable radiance to the complexion.
AN INFUSION OF CAMELLIA ALBA PFA
The signature of the HYDRA BEAUTY line, Camellia Alba PFA** extract joins forces with the wide-spectrum antioxidant active ingredient Blue Ginger PFA** in the liquid phase of HYDRA BEAUTY Micro Liquid Essence.
This active ingredient stimulates natural hydration mechanisms to maintain the skin’s moisture levels. It also activates the production of lipids that strengthen the skin barrier. Combined with glycerin and hyaluronic acid, it ensures hydration and maintains it with each application.
At first, as fresh as water, its texture diffuses over skin like a vivifying wave, leaving a pleasant sensation of hydration in its wake. Then, the jellified camellia micro- droplets burst, offering a wonderful feeling of comfort.
A SPLASH OF ENERGY
Take five drops of HYDRA BEAUTY Micro Liquid Essence and gently press onto the cheeks, forehead and chin. Immediately, the texture, which is as fresh as water, sweeps over the skin like a vivifying wave. Smooth outwards over the face. The micro-droplets burst and envelop the skin, infusing it with extreme comfort. Immediately hydrated (+50%***), skin is fresh, plumped, luminous and revitalized (+19%****). Application after application, its texture is refined (+32%*****) and the complexion appears even.
** PFA: PolyFractioning of Active ingredients. A process specific to CHANEL that allows for the creation of ultra-pure cosmetic active ingredients.
*** Instrumental evaluation of 21 Chinese women, immediately after application.
**** Clinical evaluation of 30 Chinese women after application.
***** Clinical evaluation of 30 Chinese women after one month of use.
MICROFLUIDIC HYDRA BEAUTY IS ALSO…
HYDRA BEAUTY Micro Sérum
The first microfluidic skincare by CHANEL combines the hydrating power of Camellia Alba PFA, which helps skin restore and maintain its moisture reserves, and nourishing properties of Camellia Alba OFA******, a protective and plumping lipidic extract sheltered by micro-droplets. Not to mention Blue Ginger PFA, a powerful antioxidant. As a result, skin benefits from 24-hour hydration. It is intensely plumped!
HYDRA BEAUTY Micro Gel Yeux
In this eye contour care product, the star ingredient trio of the HYDRA BEAUTY range expands with a micro-peptide that targets dark circles and puffiness for a fresh, smoothed eye area. All in an instantly energizing jellified texture.
HYDRA BEAUTY Micro Crème
As fresh and light as water, it reveals all of its creaminess on contact with the skin, infusing the face with the three star ingredients: moisturizing Camellia Alba PFA, plumping Camellia Alba OFA and protective Blue Ginger PFA. Doubly concentrated with Blue Ginger PFA, HYDRA BEAUTY Micro Crème strengthens skin, day after day.
****** Camellia Alba OFA: exclusive active ingredient. International patent application. OFA: OleoFractioned Active ingredient.
HYDRA BEAUTY MASQUE DE NUIT AU CAMÉLIA: R1360
Hydrating | Oxygenating
Water, oxygen and rest. These are the beauty essentials for skin overworked by an extremely intense lifestyle and suffocated by an asphyxiating city.
Once it is free from the stress of the day, the skin takes the time to regenerate and repair itself at night. This intense cellular activity requires a great deal of energy. During this daily reconstruction phase, it is also more permeable and more receptive to active ingredients. The perfect time to help it regenerate.
HYDRA BEAUTY Masque de Nuit au Camélia gets to work while you dream so that you can wake up to suppler, fresher and more radiant skin, as if you just enjoyed a good night’s sleep.
CAMELLIA AND ITS ALLIES
HYDRA BEAUTY Masque de Nuit au Camélia is the CHANEL product with the highest concentration of camellia. It is inspired by dewdrops that bead up on camellia petals at dawn to detoxify and reoxygenate the flower. With the combination of Camellia Alba PFA and Blue Ginger PFA, backed by an advanced trace element complex, this new-generation mask transposes this moment of grace onto skin. Richly endowed with zinc, copper and magnesium, this complex reactivates cellular oxygenation mechanisms by capturing the oxygen circulating in the blood vessels. A true energizing ally, it also recharges skin with vital elements and stimulates the synthesis of ATP, cellular fuel.
AN EXCEPTIONAL TEXTURE
Like morning dew, the HYDRA BEAUTY Masque de Nuit au Camélia texture unveils treasures of sensoriality. Take the lightweight, opalescent cream and apply a thin layer to face and neck with the curved part of the camellia petal-shaped applicator. As chic as it is ergonomic, this applicator perfectly follows every curve and dip of the face.
It makes application soft and delicate. Extra tip: turn the applicator over and apply a small amount of product to the lips. Leave on for two minutes, then massage gently while the texture becomes more fluid. In seconds, fine water droplets appear, like pearls of morning dew. A poetic sign that the active ingredients are diffusing into skin. Leave on to infuse all night. Skin quenches its thirst for water, oxygen and rest. In the morning, it is fresh, supple and rosy. In one word: radiant!
