THE STORY

The idea of La Crème was first conceived by Dr Veronique Emmeneger when she was traveling in Australia and discovered an indigenous tree that “bleeds” a red sap replete with healing properties. This led her to discover another tree on another continent - Pistacia lentiscus in Greece - which has a crystalline healing sap, she thought would be the ideal base for a rejuvenating facial cream.

LUXURY SKINCARE

THAT DOESN'T COMPROMISE

LA CRÈME’s unique cashmere texture and signature perfume have been fashioned with unsurpassed attention to detail to offer women an authentic feeling of perfection. With each application, the visible signs of aging are addressed and seem to fade away.

Facial contours appear redrawn and skin seems firmer, brighter and visibly more resilient.

 

THE RITUAL

To nurture skin, massage cream in circular movements over the face, descending to include the contours of the neck and décolleté. Apply all-year-round, morning and night, after the usual skincare regimen of cleanser, toner and serum.

THE SCIENCE

CRYSTAL COMPLEX

LA CRÈME’s signature innovation targets the skin’s own cellular youth proteins. This complex is obtained from crystalline sap droplets collected by hand under a tree native to a single island. Extensive research* has shown that the oil extracted from these sap droplets can increase the synthesis of the Klotho protein. The Klotho protein is involved in a large number of signalling pathways leading to the re-establishment of ideal cellular function. It has also been shown to play a part in augmenting collagen synthesis, which contributes to a densifying effect on the skin.

*Research and testing secured by the research partner CODIF RECHERCHE ET NATURE using the oil obtained by supercritical CO2 extraction of sap droplets collected from the Pistacia lentiscus, tree, entirely native to the Island of Chios. Neither Swiss line nor Clinic Lémanic are in any way affiliated with Codif R&N.

 

CULTURED PLANT STEM CELLS

Inspired by Lémanic’s own practices in the field of stem-cell autologous transplantation, yet using only plant-based stem-cell cultures, these unique extracts are apportioned with enhancing cellular energy, increasing ATP levels and promoting DNA repair. Derived from the partial hydrolysis of the extracellular matrix (cell wall) of cultured plant stem cells through a patented process, this natural blend of tripeptides and sugar molecules act in synergy towards positively affecting sirtuin expression. 

  

GOLD ALGAE

The precious lipids found in the golden algae Laminaria ochroleuca build a defence system against dryness and exterior aggressors, and can thus contribute to the reduction of photo-induced aging, by helping to counteract inflammatory chain reactions induced by UV radiation.

 

ARGAN OIL

Rich in naturally occurring sterols, argan oil is supremely moisturizing and nourishing. It has been found to help delay the signs of aging caused by dryness, as its vitamin E content bestows it with great antioxidant virtues. Argan trees are only found in Morocco along the Atlantic coastline. It is defined as a precious oil as 100kg of fresh fruits are needed to create just 2l of pure oil. 

 

CERAMIDE-LIKE COMPLEX

Multiple amino acid derivatives replicates the lamellar structure of intercellular lipids to strengthen the epidermal barrier, helping improve the skin’s condition and ability to retain moisture; especially efficient in addressing mature skin needs.
