The Science of Beautiful Skin

 

Genucel. Cultivating the Science of Beautiful Skin.

Our skin. Protecting us, keeping us healthy and looking our best to everyone we meet.

Applying products to look after our skin should be done with care. It is called SkinCare after all. In today’s world, people are more in touch and better educated than ever before with their own health and well-being, and yet, we are still surrounded by trendy scientific buzzwords like ‘must have’ ingredients and hopes that a new skincare brand has your skin's best interest at heart.

And now more than ever, you are allowed to ask questions of the products you apply to your skin and how they work FOR YOU.

Genucel products rely on conclusive research, in-depth studies, and natural ingredients to create products that can truly help make your skin noticeably younger and more radiant.

With products that demonstrate results that you can actually see, ingredients that tackle specific problem areas and molecular delivery systems that ensure these ingredients go where they need to within the layers of your skin, you can be sure that genucel is working for your skin.

It’s important to us to be transparent about our ingredients and educational about our industry. We believe that in skincare, every exciting announcement or statement about an ingredient or result should be backed up immediately by the science, the how… the why… and the ways it can benefit you and your skin.

Calendula

Many of our products begin life in the same way, as a silky smooth anti-oxidant, proprietary cream base, from there, the magic happens and we develop products for specific skin concerns and general skin health. So, let’s talk about the antioxidant powerhouse of our proprietary base, let us introduce our dear friend, Calendula.

Native to the Mediterranean region, Calendula is a stunning yellow flowering plant. Packed with antioxidants, it effectively protects delicate skin cells from harm caused by free radicals, UV rays, and everyday air pollution and Its extraordinary healing properties make it the perfect foundation for our products.

The presence of Calendula also increases the effectiveness of other skincare products.

Calendula is naturally packed with Linoleic Acid - an abundant fatty acid naturally found in the skin’s moisture barrier. Because of this, it is one of the few extracts that helps skin maintain ideal moisture levels.

By creating stronger, more hydrated skin that is less susceptible to environmental irritants, it also increases the effectiveness of any other active ingredient present in your skincare products. Safe enough even for those with extreme sensitivity, Calendula is a natural ingredient that serves as a nourishing foundation for nearly all our products.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Cultivating the Science of Beautiful Skin

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is another essential ingredient when it comes to the health and radiance of your skin. Rich in antioxidants, Vitamin C impacts skin's natural restorative process, which helps your body maintain the health of your skin. Research suggests that topical Vitamin C can visibly decrease the appearance of dark spots and increase skin brightness. Studies have also shown that daily use of a topical Vitamin C formula can improve the appearance of wrinkles on the face and neck while also refining skin’s overall texture and appearance.  

When it comes to Vitamin C, it is important to deliver it to your cells in the most effective manner possible. That’s why genucel Vitamin C products rely on cutting-edge technology like liposomal technology effectiveness. Liposomes are spheres made up of phospholipids that carry vitamin C at their core. Liposomal Technology maximizes the delivery of pure Vitamin C to the layers of the skin that need it most. Water based serums do not deliver the effective goodness of Vitamin C to the layers of skin that need it most. The result is Vitamin C that only sits on the surface of the skin and is never absorbed for desired results. Our Vitamin C is encapsulated in a fat soluble solution that is delivered to the deepest layer of the skin to be absorbed by the body. This absorption leads to a release of pure Vitamin C for maximum results. Liposomal Vitamin C is better able to visibly target oxidative stress, hydrate your skin, and restore a radiant glow.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid is a popular skincare buzzword. Long before it was touted as a miracle skin care solution, it was recognized to have immense benefits on the appearance of aging skin. A sugar molecule found throughout the body’s connective tissue, Hyaluronic Acid is responsible for providing your skin with a plump, hydrated look that is associated with younger skin.

Hyaluronic Acid effectively slows the rate at which the water evaporates from within your skin cells. By minimizing your body’s transepidermal water loss, Hyaluronic Acid creates highly moisturized skin that appears smoother, firmer, and more radiant. This compound helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and leaves your skin looking younger and more rejuvenated by helping water molecules bind to the collagen already in your skin.

Matrixyl

In recent years, science has uncovered the incredible benefits that Matrixyl has on the skin. A gentler alternative to a traditional retinol, Matrixyl is a peptide that specifically targets skin cells, visibly improving skin suppleness, supports healthy elasticity, and maintains visibly healthier looking skin. Clinical studies have revealed that regular use of Matrixyl results in a significant visible reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, even at extremely low concentrations.

Malus Domestica Extracts

Perhaps the most breakthrough ingredient used in genucel skin care products is the Malus Domestica - Uttweiler Spatlauber - extract. Obtained using high pressure homogenization, these apple extracts have been shown to visibly reduce the depth of crows feet and reduce the appearance of wrinkles in close to 100% of test subjects. Just like other natural extracts, these highly concentrated botanical ingredients are rich in antioxidants and possess incredible healing properties. Gentle and effective, they soothe aging skin while also encouraging a youthful appearance.

The Genucel Difference

Your skin is the largest organ of your body - every single thing applied to it greatly impacts your overall health and wellness. Genucel is rooted in stripping away all the embellishments like mineral oil, parabens, and pharmaceutical byproducts that are often more harmful than beneficial to your skin.


Genucel Skin Care is evidence based with actual results from real customers and goodness of product. The genucel philosophy towards natural skin care is simple: cultivating the science of beautiful skin.

Chamonix® anti-aging skin care products were developed by George Faltaous, a pharmacist with a background in chemistry and nutrition as well as pharmaceuticals. Our unique anti-aging formulations are based on sound scientific thinking, a belief in using only pure ingredients, and clinical proof of what works to fight wrinkles and restore skin’s youthful appearance.

Knowing that antioxidants have the power to fight wrinkle-causing free radicals, as well as nourish and moisturize, we base all of our anti-aging skin care products on antioxidants.

Free radicals are formed when the body uses oxygen. This is a normal process, but exposure to sunlight, cigarette smoke, pollution and other external and internal stresses increases the number of free radicals in the body. These molecules are unstable due to unpaired electrons, so they seek out electrons from healthy molecules. At abnormally high levels, the result is cellular damage – the primary cause of wrinkles, dark circles under the eyes and other visible signs of aging.

Antioxidants are the best defense, playing an important role by neutralizing oxidative damage and building up natural defenses. They’re produced in the body, and also found in a wide array of foods, such as cranberries, grapes, blackberries, blueberries, green tea and many others. However, studies have shown that the skin is the last organ of the body to receive antioxidants from the foods we eat.

Chamonix antioxidant skin care products are the solution. Clinical studies prove that topical antioxidants like those in our best-selling anti-wrinkle creamsnot only help to heal environmentally damaged skin, but slow down the aging process and prevent wrinkles. All Chamonix anti-aging treatments are packed with powerful antioxidants. A synergistic combination of natural ingredients ensures that your skin receives its maximum benefit.

A number of our physician-endorsed anti-wrinkle creams, eye wrinkle creams and other anti-aging treatments contain the following:

  • Cranberry: The tocotrienols in cranberries have great antioxidant properties, which help protect the skin from stress caused by sunlight. It also has omega oils to nourish and moisturize the skin while calming inflammation.
  • Grape Seed Extract: Containing chemicals known as polyphenols, scientifically recognized to be powerful antioxidants, grape seed extract is instrumental to protecting the skin from free radical damage.
  • Vitamin E: This vitamin is an excellent antioxidant, protecting the skin from environmental pollution and UV radiation. It also has excellent moisturizing properties and an anti-inflammatory action, which helps prevent skin aging.
  • Green Tea: Extensive research has shown that this botanical extract not only has amazing antioxidant and cell protective qualities, but also protects collagen, a primary component of healthy skin, and fights inflammation.

Other anti-aging skin care products contain antioxidants. However, in most cases these potentially highly effective ingredients are buried in a poor quality base, so that their immediate benefits quickly erode. Also, quality ingredients like antioxidants are often present only in very small amounts, making them ineffective. Chamonix anti-aging products contain clinical concentrations of a variety of powerful antioxidants in a gentle, natural base of calendula that ensures effectiveness without any harmful side effects.
