Nuxe is a brand that I use quite a lot, their SPF is amazing, particularly the fragrance, makes gay gardens smell like Hawaii!! Nuxe is all about using natural ingredients along with high-tech solutions to keeping skin healthy and protected. One of the core ingredients of the Crème Fraîche de Beauté is their exclusive Botanical Milks, they get these milks by mixing the oily parts and the water soluble parts of the plant, creating the milky textured loveliness that is in the range, this also concentrates all of the plants active molecules. They have also added Acacia, Blonde Pea, Green Tea, Almond, Oat, Coconut and Soya Milks all of which have rich moisturising benefits. The high-tech element comes from an innovative active ingredient that’s extracted from a red algae from the Baltic Sea, which is sustainably farmed and completely environmentally friendly, an important factor now. After going through a dehydration process and then re-hydrated using marine salts its structure resembles that of hyaluronic acid, which as we all (should) know is mega hydrating!!
What the range promises to do. On the surface of the skin the botanical milks strengthen the hydrolipidic film which will help the skin to retain water molecules more effectively. Just under the top layer of skin, the horny layer, the botanical milks and algae extract boost the natural moisturising factor to effectively trap water there. In the mid layers of the skin the algae extract helps ti strengthen junctions, responsible for ensuring the natural sealing of the skin. In the deep layers, the Algae Extract boosts the production of epidermal Hyaluronic Acid, which means more plump skin.
