Step up your game with complete protection. Beyond shielding skin from all harmful UV rays (short and long UVA, UVB, indoor lighting), UV ESSENTIEL combines two natural and powerful ingredients: Life Plant PFA* and Desert Yeast Extract to intensify skin’s all-round daily defence against pollution, external stresses and maintaining optimal hydration levels.
An exceptional gel-cream texture combines the lightness of a gel with the comfort of a cream, going the extra step for long-lasting luminosity. The skin’s youthful quality is preserved and extended.
*PFA: PolyFractioning of Active ingredients. A process specific to CHANEL that allows for the creation of ultra-pure cosmetic ingredients.
A combination of 3 powerful active ingredients offers complete protection:
. SPF 50 FILTERS:
Powerful UV filters protect skin from harmful UV rays including UVB, UVA, indoor lighting and provide very high UV protection even under intense sun.
. LIFE PLANT PFA:
Life Plant is cultivated in Madagascar and has adapted itself to grow and live in extreme UV exposure conditions. Life Plant PFA* protects skin from external stresses with its powerful antioxidant action.
. DESERT YEAST EXTRACT:
Desert Yeast Extract regulates the impact of both indoor and outdoor pollution particles. It also stimulates skin's natural defence to reinforce its moisture barrier function and helps skin maintain an optimal level of hydration.
Complete protection to preserve skin’s youthfulness. Skin is instantly refreshed, hydrated and luminous, perfectly primed for Makeup application.
Apply to entire face, neck and décolleté as the final step of your daily skincare ritual, before makeup application. Reapply regularly in case of exposure to harmful rays to ensure skin is protected throughout the day.
