Clarins Research

Clarins Research The impact of thermic shocks on skin’s natural hydration levels

Sudden temperature changes in warm or cold air, dry or humid air, environmental extremes and pollutants... can all alter the skin’s natural water retention systems.

The skin’s self-hydration

The skin’s self-hydration:
the essential role of “sponge molecules”.

Well-moisturised skin is skin that can capture and retain water thanks to its “sponge molecules”: a natural system of water retention which allows the skin to maintain ideal percentages of water at all skin levels.

The skin’s capacity to retain water is restored through organic leaf of life extract, which naturally stimulates the expression of genes at the origin of these water-retaining “sponge molecules” and boosts the natural, direct synthesis of hyaluronic acid, the major “sponge molecule”, in the dermis and epidermis.

Hydra-Essentiel Light Cream

A fine, melting texture with a velvety feel that envelopes the skin with an immediate feeling of  omfort – leaving it radiant and perfectly hydrated.

Your skin is put to the test every day: stress, pollution, impurities, sudden temperature changes... So learn to take care of it and protect it.




Originating from Madagascar, the leaf of life is a fascinating plant -its leaves have the capacity to quickly produce new plants, symbolizing the regenerating power of life, and the plant itself appears green and fleshy even in conditions of extreme drought. Known as a “succulent” plant since it is full of sap, the leaf of life has adapted to hydric stress thanks to molecules which act like sponges to retain water inside the leaves. This action, similar to that of hyaluronic acid -the skin’s “sponge molecule” -served as an inspiration to ClarinsLaboratories. They have demonstrated, in cosmetics, the capacity of leaf of life extract to boost the skin’s natural hydration mechanisms by encouraging, in particular, the synthesis of hyaluronic acid. The extract used by ClarinsLaboratories is organic.
