Give your skin a rebirth with the NEW Crème Masque Vernix
We are delighted to announce this innovative step in skincare science is now available in the UK!
Crème Masque Vernix has been making waves across the globe with its intensely nourishing formula identically replicating that of the vernix caseosa – the highly protective layer on a newborn’s skin at birth. Biologique Recherche, always at the forefront of innovation to give you the best in results-driven formulations, studied one of Mother Nature’s most effective creations and replicated the design into a beautifully smooth, soothing cream ideal for distressed Skin Instants®.
What is vernix caseosa?
Vernix caseosa is a naturally occurring, complex, lipid-rich substance covering the skin surface of a foetus in the last trimester of pregnancy through to birth. Composed of a thick, waxy texture, vernix serves many vital purposes to the newborn, including conserving warmth, protecting and intensely moisturising the highly delicate newborn skin. In fact, vernix caseosa may even help protect a baby’s skin from infection, as the proteins within it have antibiotic properties.
How does Crème Masque Vernix work for my skin?
Hailed as a ‘true marriage of science and beauty’, Crème Masque Vernix mimics the composition of vernix to utilise its powerful healing properties, balance the skin’s pH and inhibit the growth of bacteria for a multi-pronged approach to skin replenishment.
What are its key ingredients?
Key ingredients include Niacinamide, as found in the yeast extract of vernix. When topically applied, Niacinamide has been shown to prevent skin from losing water and stimulate microcirculation in the dermis.
Placenta extract, a firm Biologique Recherche favourite for its natural healing properties, works to rebalance and repair alongside Carob Seed extract; both playing their part in this intricate combination of fats, proteins and antioxidants.
Who does it work for?
Crème Masque Vernix is ideal for dehydrated, mature and devitalised Skin Instants®, as well as those suffering with inflammatory skin conditions. Painful, dry rashes are notoriously very hard to treat with skincare; this product could be revolutionary to those who suffer with chronically dry and lifeless skin.
How does Crème Masque Vernix fit into my homecare regime and how do I apply it?
After using the recommended Cleansing Milk, Lotion P50 and Quintessential Sérums, apply a thin layer of Crème Masque Vernix in the morning and/or evening on the entire face, neck and décolleté. Massage gently with fingertips until completely absorbed. The cream is thick in texture and feels extremely fortifying and comforting to skin when applied.
For a mask effect, apply in a thick layer. Leave for about ten minutes then delicately remove any excess with a damp cotton pad. Alternatively, you could also leave it on overnight and rinse it off in the morning using the recommend Cleansing Milk.
There are many factors, both internal and external, that can trigger dry skin. If untreated, it can sometimes lead to dermatitis – chronic inflammation of the skin – swelling, and infection. Crème Masque Vernix is an essential part in saying goodbye to dry, uncomfortable flaky skin.
