The French know beauty and how beautiful skin is the outer reflection of inner health.
Wendy Barker travelled to a renowned skincare house in southwest France to meet the man who created GERnetic skincare – the highly effective range chosen for facials and treatments at her Christchurch salon, Beauty Progress.
During his seminar at the Laboratoire Gernetic Synthese at the Chateau d’ Ensoules in Beraut, Albert Laporte explained how the skin reflects what is happening inside the body.
Through the understanding of cellular biology, his products penetrate the skin so the digestive system can effectively synthesise the active elements.
“You will find all the active vitamins, amino acids and oligo elements are in the exact dosage necessary for the body’s daily needs,” Laporte explained to a group of professionals from around the globe.
These are delivered directly to organs such as the liver and can help counteract imbalances in the diet or nutrient absorption.
“It is not always possible to get the right nutrients from what we digest. When these creams are applied with effleurage (circular) movements, the fatty molecules – which are two-and-a-half times larger than a pore – remain on the skin, while the smaller molecules go deeper, entering the blood circulation, to be absorbed by the body.”
Working in tandem with a healthy diet, scientific developments in cosmeceutical products are now providing amazing results, he says – not to mention the pampering.
