However, the clever folk at Pellelucent have harnessed the anti-ageing dexterity of some of Australia’s finest natives, and combined them with potent actives to bring you an all-compassing anti-ageing cream with results.
The Carousel’s Beauty Editor Chrisanthi Kaliviotis, and Lifestyle Editor Bianca Spendlove, put botanical anti-ageing to the beauty test, and see what happens when you marry science with botanicals.
Watch our video on how you can fight the signs of ageing with botanical skincare ingredients contained in the luxury creams and lotions in the Pellelucent range.
Chrisanthi: What happens when you marry science with botanicals? You get a luxurious anti-ageing cream, that’s what. It turns back the clock whilst giving you that much-needed glow. But can botanicals really help with anti-ageing?
Bianca: In short, yes. If you get the balance right with other ingredients such as actives, antioxidants and oils then you’re on track to a winning formula. Pellelucent has two amazingly potent Australian native botanicals inside its little jar of magic.
Chrisanthi: The first, is Kakadu Plum, which has been sustainably harvested from the Northern Territory, it offers nature’s most potent dose of Vitamin C. Traditionally used by Indigenous Australians for its healing and medicinal properties, Kakadu Plum has been shown to support the synthesis of collagen and to reduce inflammation – resulting in clear, smooth and radiant skin.
Bianca: The second, is seaweed. Sourced from waters off the Tasmanian coast, this nutrient-laden seaweed compound acts as a natural humectant, locking moisture into the skin while supplying added protection and nourishment.
Chrisanthi: There’s also other natural ingredients which help fight ageing. (OLAY entire range of product) Pellelucent is packed with a broad range of anti-oxidants in a finely calibrated formulation: Vitamin C, natural Vitamin E, Green Tea, CoQ10 plus seaweed extracts. These superstar antioxidants work together to support healthy skin by combating the damage of free radicals and help reduce collagen breakdown.
Bianca: Fatty oils promote smoother, more supple skin, so both Macadamia Nut and Almond Oil have been added. These sustainable oils soften and protect the skin but they also facilitate the quick absorption of the unique formulation, without leaving a greasy residue – so you get firmer skin with an unmistakable glow.
Chrisanthi: I think what’s most special about this cream is that it balances all of those ingredients to work together. It has the optimum synthesis of scientific advances and natural ingredients.
Bianca: Let’s try the product and see for ourselves:
Chrisanthi: It’s super hydrating and non-greasy
Bianca: Rich, but not too rich. And it absorbs easily, with no overpowering fragrance…
Chrisanthi: There you have it, botanical beauty with an anti-ageing bang.
