Blue zones are 4 regions of the world where people live better and longer: Nicoya in Costa Rica, Sardinia in Italy, Ikaria in Greece and Okinawa in Japan.
CHANEL Research has selected 3 essential natural ingredients from diets of the world's blue zones and extracted their most potent molecules to bring them together in a face serum.
Green coffee from Costa Rica, olive from Sardinia and lentisk gum from Greece (exclusively harvested in Chios - Protected Designation of Origin - traditionally consumed in Ikaria), with revitalising and antioxidant properties, are brought together in the new universal serum by CHANEL.
The formula of BLUE SERUM provides an immediate sensation of freshness and ideally prepares the skin to receive the benefits of your usual skincare.
Day after day, the skin appears younger, firmer, healthier.
The formula of BLUE SERUM combines the best of nature and technology. CHANEL Research has selected 3 natural ingredients and has transformed them into efficient cosmetic active ingredients, using advanced green technologies:
GREEN COFFEE - COSTA RICA
The green coffee from Nicoya is renowned for its heightened anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
The olive from Sardinia is highly concentrated in skin-fortifying polyphenols and essential fatty acids to help protect skin.
LENTISK - GREECE
The greek lentisk gum, exclusively harvested in Chios - Protected Designation of Origin - traditionally consumed in Ikaria, is rich in oleanolic acid to help restore skin's natural regenerative abilities.
CHANEL Research has evaluated the efficacy of BLUE SERUM thanks to 3 key benefits:
- Wrinkles are smoothed: -35%*
- Skin is firmer: +21%*
- Skin tone is more even: +38%**
And for the first time, CHANEL Research has developed two indexes*** to measure the youthful and healthy aspect of the skin:
- Youthful aspect index (muscle tone and density of the skin, skin tone uniformity, reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and spots): +23%*
- Healthy aspect index (smooth and plump skin, firmness, radiance and well-rested aspect of the face): +23%**
*Clinical evaluation on 44 women after one month of use (France)
**Clinical evaluation on 45 women after one month of use (Sardinia)
