Pollution Defence Pressed Serum With CITYSTEM™(*)

Weirdest. Texture. Ever. This emulsion is neither a cream nor a gel. It is a super concentrated serum that looks like a gel but which is rich like a cream. The special combination of Volarest™ FL, Viscoptima™SE and gelling agents create this special jelly texture. On your skin, it glided on smoothly, transforming into a velvety and fatty-like texture, and left the face feeling supple, but not oily or weighed down. And this pressed serum, manufactured with a cold process to preserve Energy of the Planet, features CITYSTEM™, a plant extract produced by an eco-designed process and dedicated to fight visible and invisible pollution damage of the skin. CITYSTEM™ protects, removes, strengthens and repairs the skin to leave it smooth and flawless. A touch of magic and wonder is also added to this formulation with Crodarom® Elfe Flower™, a perennial plant used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for more than a thousand years.
