In an increasingly urbanised world, our skin is exposed to many indoor and outdoor pollutants every day, including solvents, exhaust fumes, dust, pollen and fine particles. Throughout the day, these pollutants pile up on the skin’s surface and create oxidative stress that weakens the skin barrier.
Consequences: dehydration, redness, imperfections, dull complexion, and, in the long term, accelerated skin aging and increasingly visible dark spots.
CHANEL Research has taken inspiration from the power of plants to create D-POLLUTION ESSENTIEL, an extra-fine mist to protect the skin from the external aggressors of city life. Formulated with a blend of innovative natural active ingredients, this mist offers 3-D protection with 3 complementary actions: D-POLLUTE, D-STRESS, D-FEND. It provides immediate protection, hydration, comfort, and reveals skin’s natural healthy glow.
The 3 actions of D-POLLUTION ESSENTIEL:
D-POLLUTE, by blocking pollutants on the skin's surface.
D-STRESS, by protecting skin from oxidative stress.
D-FEND, by reinforcing skin's natural defenses and helping it resist against aggressors.
D-POLLUTE, with a second-skin biopolymer made of two natural gums from a type of red algae and a South American fava bean. This biopolymer forms a non-occlusive protective film, which reinforces the skin barrier, prevents penetration of pollutants and facilitates their removal when cleansing.
Easier removal of pollution particles: 17%*
D-STRESS, with Blue Ginger PFA** and Silver Needle Tea, two antioxidant active ingredients developed by CHANEL Research. They act in synergy to reduce oxidative stress caused by pollution, help delay the appearance of aging signs, and soothe the skin.
Reduction of an oxidative stress marker: -16%***
D-FEND, with desert yeast extract derived from the Saguaro Cactus. It helps our skin adapt to aggressors, by inhibiting pollution-related stress receptors.
Inhibition of pollution-related stress receptors: -70%***
After one month of application, the skin recovers its natural beauty. It is:
*In-vivo test on 17 women.
**PFA: PolyFractioning of Active ingredients. A process specific to CHANEL that allows for the creation of ultra-pure cosmetic ingredients.
***Ex-vivo test - evaluation of AhR reduction.
****Clinical test after 1 month of application.
Apply to face in the morning, after your usual skincare ritual or over makeup. Spray in one circular movement, approximately 15 cm (6 inches) from face. Do not aim the product at and avoid contact with eyes. Do not intentionally inhale during application. Reapply over makeup throughout the day as needed, especially during pollution peaks.
