Kiehl’s Super Multi-Corrective Eye-Opening Serum was developed to address aging around the full orbital area with key ingredients to help target the distinct behaviors of the entire eye area. Within the formula, the key ingredients helping to visibly correct the aging eye area include:
In-vitro data shows that this effective plant extract is known to promote cell proliferation helping to increase epidermal thickness, key to addressing the thinning eye area. Second, it is known to reinforce the skin’s structure by stimulating the synthesis of specific proteins involved in skin cohesion. The formula, with botanically derived Rhamnose, gives skin a firmer, lifted appearance. “I’m pleased when I see this ingredient used in skincare. There are few ingredients in Dermatology that are strong enough to tackle age-related damage that occurs around the eyes, yet are gentle enough for the ultra sensitive area. This dual functionality makes Rhamnose a best in class ingredient.” shares Dr. Geyer.
This ingredient is used in the formula for its known ability to hold large quantities of water within the skin’s surface. The formula with this ingredient acts to visibly smooth wrinkles around the lateral and lower orbital area for younger looking eyes.
Skin Illuminating Minerals:
Kiehl’s chemists included skin-illuminating minerals to help provide immediate luminosity and eye contour brightening.
“Most eye creams and serums address fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles and some loss of elasticity” shares Dr. Geoff Genesky, Head of Kiehl’s Skin Care Laboratory, Research and Innovation Manager. “Our research and innovation team wanted to bring true innovation to the aging eye category with 5 in 1, true ‘eye opening’ results. This required use of an effective, yet gentle ingredient – botanically derived Rhamnose – plus an extremely well documented hydrating polymer, Sodium Hyaluronate. And our customers always appreciate the immediate benefits that skin illuminating minerals offer for a complete 360 degree anti-aging solution.”
