How it works
2018 firming innovation
Clarins gets to the source of firmness.
For the first time, Clarins Research has discovered a reservoir of young skin cells that have powerful regenerating properties. As we age, these reserves are depleted—and it shows. Skin loses its firmness, wrinkles begin to appear, and facial contours become less defined.
The Clarins answer
Clarins ethnobotanists traveled to Australia to study age-defying Kangaroo Flower—a plant known for its visible firming and wrinkle-fighting properties.
Firming comes naturally at Clarins.
Clarins’ previous Extra-Firming treatments revolutionized the face of firming with plant-infused formulas that visibly tone and tighten skin. In 2018, we’ve boosted this action with the discovery of powerful new plant ingredients that take firming to the next level of excellence.
The Clarins answer
A new plant discovery from Burkina Faso—Organic Mitracarpus promotes skin suppleness at its source by visibly boosting elasticity and firmness.
At night, skin goes into repair mode.
Your skin has its own internal clock. During the day, it fights off external aggressors like pollutants, free radicals, UV rays, and the effects of stress. At night, when you sleep, skin’s regenerative powers kick into high gear—especially between 11:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m.—replacing damaged or dead cells with new ones.
Why cellular renewal slows down.
By comparing the nighttime activities of young and old fibroblasts—the collagen-producing cells that support firmness, elasticity and skin tone—Clarins has discovered that the skin’s ability to produce fresh young cells declines with age.
The Clarins answer
Hydrated Moonstone of Silica extract works overnight for visibly renewed, more youthful-looking skin by morning.
Additional beauty actions
Clarins skincare expertise.
Extra-Firming is a collection of firming treatments that delivers unrivaled results. Each formula contains the world’s most powerful key plant ingredients, and is a first-of-its-kind in the field of plant science.
Moisture / Nourishment
Traditionally, Shea Butter and Shea Oil—which are rich in fatty acids—have been used to help nourish and protect the skin. Clarins uses Shea to comfort and moisturize.
Organic Leaf of Life
This super-quenching plant extract boosts the skin’s natural hydration, enhancing its ability to retain precious moisture in any environment.
Fights future aging.
Skin needs as much protection as it can get from environmental aggressors. Clarins’ powerful Anti-Pollution Complex helps shield skin from the effects of indoor and outdoor pollutants that can lead to premature signs of aging.
Skin barrier function
A red algae common to the coasts of the North Atlantic, Furcellaria produces a water-soluble gum which is used in food for its thickening, gelling and stabilizing properties. Clarins uses Furcellaria extract in Extra-Firming to create barrier action against pollution and moisture loss.
Antioxidant No. 1
In the Middle Ages, Sanicle was widely regarded as a cure-all. In modern times, this potent anti-oxidant—rich in rosmarinic acid—is valued by cosmetic companies for its ability to help protect skin from harmful free radicals.
Antioxidant No. 2
African Ebony Tree
The African Ebony Tree is prized by indigenous cultures for its many medicinal virtues. Its leaves are used to treat many skin conditions, including scarring. A powerful antioxidant—Clarins uses African Ebony Leaf extract in Extra-Firming to help protect skin from the harmful effects of pollution and free radicals.
Boosts skin’s natural defenses
In traditional medicine, this hearty annual was used to heal scabies, and to soothe irritations caused by breastfeeding—hence the nickname “nipplewort”. Clarins uses Organic Succory Dock-Cress extract to boost the skin’s natural defenses against free radicals and other environmental aggressors.
Even skin tone
Organic Desert Date
An integral part of daily life in the dry regions of Africa and Asia—Organic Desert Date is used as food for humans and livestock, as a medicinal plant, and for building material and fuel. Clarins uses Organic Desert Date extract in Extra-Firming to help even skin tone.
Instant smoothing effect
Firm at 40.
No matter how well you take care of your skin, by age 40 cellular regeneration starts to slow, and signs of aging set in. That’s why skin needs targeted firming treatments to pick up the slack.
The Clarins answer
Organic Oat Sugars
Long recognized by Clarins Laboratories for their instant toning effect, Organic Oat Sugars visibly lift, tighten and smooth skin to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
For thousands of years, this wild cherry has been used by cultures throughout the world for its medicinal benefits. Clarins uses the extract from its seeds to boost skin’s radiance.
