There’s always a new anti-ageing ingredient on the block – this week it’s something called Lupeol, derived from the chestnut tree, brought to you by Greek brand Korres in their new anti-ageing collection.
The Korres Castanea Arcadia collection has harnessed the potent anti-wrinkle power of pure Lupeol, and incorporated it into a cosmetic formula to deliver preventative and corrective anti-wrinkle action.
The Korres lab have included this ingredient in skincare – the first time it’s ever been used. Lupeol is found in the Castanea leaves, and it’s a compound with scientifically proven strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant action. It’s been used in medicine and pharmaceuticals before, but never as a cosmetic ingredient until now, because it can’t be diluted or absorbed by the skin. .
So, Korres delveloped an innovative molecule, Active HALupeol, where an active hyaluronic acid matrix transfers pure Lupeol to the deeper layers of the skin, for targeted, effective action.
It’s all a bit scientific really, but all you need to know is that this range is powered by this innovative molecule, Active HALupeol, and Castanea Arcadia extract, and it reduce the appearance of wrinkles, restores skin firmness and elasticity, and protects the skin’s structural elements such as collagen and glycoproteins.
There are five products in the range – Anti-Wrinkle/Firming and Brightening Face Serum (All skin types), £39, Anti-Wrinkle/Firming Day Cream (dry/very dry skin), £39, Anti-Wrinkle/Firming Day Cream (normal/combination skin), £39, Anti-Wrinkle/Firming Eye Cream, £36, Anti-Wrinkle/Firming Night Cream (all skin types), £39.
