When a product reaches ‘hero’ status, it becomes more famous for the allegiance of its loyal fans and the outstanding awards it collects than the many reasons why it reached the beauty hall of fame in the first place.
So, whether you’re an avid user of ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Marine Cream or have yet to try it, here are five things you still didn’t know about this ultimate anti-ageing moisturiser.
1. One tub of the seaweed-rich formulation is sold every 9 seconds
That’s a lot! Unparalleled results are the reason it has achieved global domination.
2. It contains Chlorella - usually found in your green smoothie
Chlorella is a powerful blue-green algae extract that helps firm skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. This is because it is composed of approximately 45% protein, and once prepared, the amino acid profile is remarkably similar to that of human collagen fibres. In-vitro testing has demonstrated that the extract can improve synthesis of collagen and elastin, as well as minimising their breakdown.
3. Using it is a full-on sensorial experience
Mimosa is not only an anti-inflammatory, toning and astringent ingredient to refine pores and help preserve skin, it also smells like pure heaven. Plus, this silky smooth, sumptuous cream melts into the complexion like a dream. So applying Pro-Collagen Marine Cream is the most pleasurable experience, heightened by the most delicious (but non-invasive) scent.
4. It moisturises skin for 12 hours*
Abundant with super algae Padina Pavonica and essential fatty acids, it’s no wonder this cream is so hydrating. But what’s surprising about its heavyweight hydrating action is how lightweight it feels on the skin. The gel-like texture can hydrate the driest of skin types, but is absorbent enough for the oiliest. *Independent Clinical Trials 2015
5. It’s not just for your face.
Don’t stop at your chin, the skin on your neck and décolletage is much thinner than the skin on your face and so ages quicker. Extending your moisturiser down to the chest is known as The French Face as French women have been doing this for generations (naturellement). Gently smooth Marine Cream in upward motions from your chest to your chin for an instant lift.
