iceland secret weapon

Iceland’s Secret Weapon

Iceland’s rugged natural terrain has birthed the beauty industry’s latest anti-ageing miracle in a bottle. Based on Nobel Prize winning science, BIOEFFECT EGF Serum is sourced from barley grass grown in state-of-the-art greenhouses housed in Icelandic volcanic lava fields and water from geothermal springs.

Pure and potent like its country of origin, BIOEFFECT’s active ingredient EGF (epidermal growth factor) reactivates the skins’ own natural renewal process. The effect is immediately moisturising (ideal for the avid global traveller) and in time leads to a reduction in fine lines and boosted collagen production.

EGF is worth more than diamonds or gold on a cost-per-weight basis and perhaps is the reason behind why more than one-fifth of Icelandic woman over 30 years of age are users – including First Lady Dorrit Moussaieff.

BIOEFFECT EGF Serum has also gathered a cult following in Europe, with Colette Paris selling out of the range within a week of its launch. It is now available to Australian and New Zealand residents at selected beauty salons or directly through.

Science goes Luxury, Youth in a (Yves Saint Laurent) jar

“Youth is a state of mind that cannot live without science.” With this radical viewpoint, the house of YSL (after joining the L’Oreal group) has commenced to launch a brand new skincare range named Forever Youth Liberator. The revolutionary range is created from the groundbreaking technology called Glycobiology; the fruit of 100 years of research, that is recognized by 7 Nobel prizes. The range is primarily based on a patented Glycanactif complex; a unique blend of glycans that unlock skin cells to reactivate their vital functions (in vitro test) and liberate youth at all levels of the skin. What is fascinating is that YSL is the first luxury brand to utilize this science in such a profound manner and apply it directly to its cosmetics. By doing so, not only has the brand made waves in the cosmetics world, but also in the field of science.

Poster recently and exclusively spoke with Caroline Negre, scientific director of YSL Beaute. When we asked what the future holds for YSL skincare and glycobiology she states, “It’s a new science that is still being discovered we’re still working on it and trying to identify new biological aspects involved in those glycans. We are making some new trials with glycan ingredients and different skin cells because glycans are a really key element of life and components of the skin and there is so much to learn about it.”

If there was one product from the range that we must try, it is the Forever Youth Liberator serum, says Negre. It feels velvety and moist on the skin, leaving it hydrated and radiant. It is designed so that only one drop covers the entire face surface. The serum and other anti-ageing products from the range had already racked up 5,000 pre-orders alone in the UK, a week before hitting the shelves, and the skincare is now considered the ‘holy grail’ of all anti-ageing due to the proven results and science behind the innovate range.

The Forever Youth Liberator skincare launches in Australia on 6th May.

a free man

A Free Man

A contemporary fragrance that embodies a free man, a state of mind and a moment of surprise, imbued with happiness.

The house of Yves Saint Laurent welcomed Benjamin Millepied to lend his creative energy and luminous charm to create the new L’Homme Libre.

The fragrance boasts woody aromatics similar to those in the original L’Homme yet this time with an edge of fresh modernity. Its a bottle of classic structure and modern freshness, yet the result is far from a clash, instead the fragrance serenely becomes resolutely modern and elegant.

The two perfumers behind the original and newly aquatic scent are Olivier Polge in Paris and Carlos Benaïm in New York. Together they have created a scent that holds the concept of ‘It takes a free man to express his passion and communicate his energy. Free to follow the rhythm of life but change the tempo at a moment’s notice. Free to take responsibility for his choices, with complete serenity, in the heart of the city.
