Tight, dry and red skin: one in two women suffer from it. For them Chanel has developed a new moisturizing treatment that soothes, fights stress and protects sensitive skin. Find out with us.
One in two women has had sensitive skin problems at least once in their life: itching, dryness, heat, sensations of stretching and discomfort with redness and roughness. The causes? Pollution, temperature variations, hormonal and environmental changes but also stress, that is everything that has to do with lifestyle. Chanel knows this well, having studied the phenomenon of sensitive skin for over twenty years. The target? To develop a universal treatment that combines effectiveness and sensoriality, a demanding challenge that has been won with The Solution 10, the first moisturizing treatment Chanel created to soothe, fight stress and protect sensitive skin.
THE STORY OF LA SOLUTION 10 DE CHANEL Everything starts from the Pantin research center, near Paris: a space that gathers pioneers in the sector. In an ad hoc division, Chanel researchers studied the link and synergies between the environment and skin biology.
For the creation of this cream Christian Mahé, Senior V. P. Chanel Research & Technology, made use of the collaboration of the dermatologist Amy Wechsler: both wanted to create an innovative product with few ingredients. The choice fell on Silver Needles white tea, hand-picked in China. This tea contains the highest percentage of antioxidants than other specialties.
Creating a product with 10 ingredients was a very demanding challenge for Chanel: 117 different formulations were analyzed before arriving at the perfect one with 10 ingredients working in perfect synergy.
IN THE HEART OF THE FORMULAChanel Research has managed to extract an unprecedented active ingredient, rich in theanine and polyphenols, which offers a triple action:
- soothes, re-establishing the sensory perception threshold for regulating the production of neurotrophic factors;
- fights stress, protecting the skin from oxidative stress, blocking the action of free radicals;
- protects, strengthening the skin barrier function thanks to the stimulation of three key proteins.
La Solution 10 de Chanel: the new treatment for sensitive skin
Pollution: Chanel's research shows that it is the first enemy of the skin. Research work has been able to demonstrate that the skin's barrier function allows pollution not to penetrate if the skin is intact. The problem is when there is compromise, or when the barrier is ruined. In this case, the polluting particles can penetrate and cause oxidative stress, but they can also act on the skin's nervous system. This is why the product is particularly interesting, because it soothes the skin when it is irritated by pollutants and at the same time helps it defend itself better and also subsequently repel attacks from pollution. Therefore, oxidative stress and impaired skin barrier function explain why pollution can generate skin sensitivity.
How does Solution 10 work on our skin? First of all, the product reinforces the skin's barrier function to prevent these polluting molecules from penetrating. Pollution can generate oxidative stress and free radicals while the product neutralizes this stress, calming the nerve fibers that are too stimulated by these polluting factors. In this sense, the product also prevents aging, although it is not specifically anti-aging.
How does our beauty routine change with La Solution 10? First of all, it is necessary to remove make-up from the skin very effectively and eliminate all the polluting particles that have accumulated, then apply the moisturizing and soothing soin. Finally, the skin must be protected from ultraviolet rays with a specific product.
In your opinion, how will female beauty change in five years? It will be very interesting to see what the impact of lifestyle will be on women and their awareness. In the past, for example, attempts have been made to sensitize women to the importance of using products with sun protection factors against UVA and UVB rays because this could cause their skin to age prematurely. Today, however, women realize that a lifestyle characterized by insomnia, stress and travel, for example, can have an impact on their beauty and emphasis is placed on a personalized beauty routine.
