To combat dull, dry, and tired-looking skin, CHANEL has developed HYDRA BEAUTY Camellia Glow Concentrate.
HYDRA BEAUTY Camellia Glow Concentrate is the ultimate way to press “reset” on your skincare routine and get your fresh, glowing complexion back. This dual-action concentrate provides both hydration and refinement in a single, gentle skincare step. Camellia japonica ‘Alba plena,’ an emblematic ingredient in the HYDRA BEAUTY line, has exceptional properties that maintain and boost hydration, so you can exfoliate without fear. Hand-selected by the CHANEL Research team, this white camellia variety is field grown at the CHANEL Research open-sky laboratory located in Gaujacq, in southwestern France. Camellia Alba PFA*, one of CHANEL’s first signature active ingredients, is derived from these fresh flowers in order to restore fluid balance to cells.
Still today, CHANEL continues to deepen its expertise and expand its knowledge of the camellia plant. CHANEL’s newest skincare product is the first to feature camellia yeast extract, a hydration booster developed specifically for the House.
The versatile HYDRA BEAUTY Camellia Glow Concentrate revitalizes the skin and restores radiance to the complexion. After just one month of use, the results are undeniable: skin appears smoother, its overall quality has improved, and it glows once again.
*PFA: PolyFractioned Active. A process developed by CHANEL that allows for ultra-pure cosmetic active ingredients.
DUAL-ACTION REFINEMENT AND HYDRATION BY VIRTUE OF POWERFUL, NATURAL-ORIGIN ACTIVE INGREDIENTS
The HYDRA BEAUTY Camellia Glow Concentrate formula strikes the perfect balance between gentle and powerful. This dual action concentrate gently refines and boosts hydration, all while respecting the skin’s natural equilibrium. Its lightweight, gel-like texture blends seamlessly with the skin as soon as it is applied.
A DUO FOR BEAUTIFUL SKIN
A refining agent with 3 natural-origin AHAs* A 3% concentration of a blend of 3 AHAs gently and gradually refines skin, guarantees results, and is tolerated well by most skin types. When dead skin cells are gently cleared away from the skin’s surface, cell regeneration can begin, leaving skin smooth.
Camellia yeast extract This patented** and exclusive new active ingredient is tailor-made, by and for CHANEL. Camellia japonica, a flower that was very dear to Gabrielle Chanel, is transformed through a biotechnological process which exposes yet another of its powerful properties. In boosting natural production of hyaluronic acid by 50%***, this yeast extract replenishes the skin’s moisture levels.
SIGNATURE ACTIVE INGREDIENTS
Camellia Alba PFA**** This white camellia extract, a highly moisturizing active ingredient patented by CHANEL, stimulates PPAR*****, receptors, which are essential for moisture regulation. When NMFs****** and essential lipids are produced and the stratum corneum is reinforced, the skin is able to hydrate itself and balance its moisture levels naturally.
Blue Ginger PFA**** This broad-spectrum antioxidant and CHANEL signature active ingredient, developed from
Madagascan blue ginger, safeguards and strengthens the skin’s natural defense mechanisms.
*AHA: alpha hydroxy acid (citric, tartaric, and lactic acids).
**European patent pending.
***In-vitro test. **** PFA: PolyFractioned Active. A process developed by CHANEL that allows for ultra-pure cosmetic active ingredients.
*****PPAR: Peroxisome Proliferator Activated Receptor.
******NMF: Natural Moisturizing Factor.
Simple yet efficient, HYDRA BEAUTY Camellia Glow Concentrate delivers progressive results, proven by clinical and instrumental evaluations each step of the way. Treatment length can be adjusted based on the skin’s needs, for a maximum duration of one month. Apply 2 drops every evening, smoothing from the center of the face outward, and downward to the neck.
FOR BEAUTIFUL SKIN RIGHT NOW
Almost immediately after application, skin is smoother and 70%* better hydrated, and the
complexion is more even.
FOR A BOOST OF RADIANCE BY NEXT WEEK
After one week of use, the stratum corneum is thinner**, a sign of optimally exfoliated skin, while the epidermis as a whole is thicker, evidence of improved cell regeneration. As for the visible results? Dead skin cells that dull the complexion are swept away, leaving behind a softer, more refined surface. A healthy glow returns with 21% more radiance***.
FOR REVITALIZED SKIN IN JUST ONE MONTH
By the end of the recommended month-long treatment, skin feels more comfortable and its
overall quality is markedly improved. The epidermis is smoother, pores are less noticeable, and redness and fine lines are reduced.
FOR A TAN THAT REALLY SHINES
HYDRA BEAUTY Camellia Glow Concentrate perfectly primes and enhances a bronze glow.
Prior to sun exposure: a one-month treatment, at least two weeks before heading off on a holiday in the sun, makes way for a glowing and even tan by removing dead cells from the skin’s surface and reducing redness.
After sun exposure: a one-week to one-month treatment upon returning from vacation eliminates roughness and dull spots. Skin is left smoother, pores and fine lines are minimized, and light reflects perfectly off of the skin’s surface making it glow.
No matter how you choose to use HYDRA BEAUTY Camellia Glow Concentrate, its refining
properties make appropriate daily sun protection a must. Wait one month in between treatments. Do not exceed 6 treatments per year.
*Instrumental evaluation (corneometer) of 22 Caucasian women, performed 2 hours after application on the forearm.
**6-day ex-vivo evaluation of a skin explant from a 44-year-old woman: 17% decrease in stratum corneum thickness.
***Clinical evaluation of 33 Asian women, 7 days after application: 9% increase in epidermal thickness.
