The Ultimate Anti-ageing Cream
Inspired by the greatest vintages from the Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte, Premier Cru is an exclusive combination of the rarest, most precious, and most effective natural active ingredients for your skin. For the first time, Caudalie’s 3 signature patents – titrated Resveratrol and Viniferine from Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte grapevines and grape-seed Polyphenols – are combined in an exceptional cream which provides superior anti-ageing results.
The perfect combination of refinement and effectiveness, this cream delivers a complete anti-ageing action to the heart of your cells: anti-wrinkle, firmness, radiance, nourishment and anti-dark spot.
In an instant, its extraordinarily rich texture envelopes your skin with a feeling of total comfort, leaving nothing but velvety softness. Throughout the day, your skin is regenerated and redensified, wrinkles are filled, the look of your skin is renewed and your complexion is even-toned. Smoother, firmer and more luminous, your skin looks visibly younger.
– Grape-seed Polyphenols (OPCs) protect skin from premature ageing caused by UV rays, pollution and environmental aggressors, by forming a shield against free radicals. Polyphenols reinforce capillaries, boost cutaneous microcirculation and help maintain an optimal level of hyaluronic acid in the dermis to preserve skin’s suppleness and elasticity.
– Resveratrol stimulates sirtuins (longevity proteins) that increase the lifespan of skin cells by 160%. A powerful activator of cellular renewal that redensifies the dermis, skin is firmer and denser. Wrinkles are smoothed from the inside and facial contours are redefined.
– Viniferine regulates the production of melanin and protects melanocytes from free radicals in order to prevent the appearance of dark spots. Viniferine restores the complexion’s radiance by restarting cutaneous microcirculation.
– Vinolevure is able to retain up to 100 times its weight in water. It has exceptional moisturizing and protective properties that reinforce the immune system.
