The Botanicals Behind New Stress Repair Concentrate+ Help it Work Smarter and Harder
How do you improve an iconic best-seller? Lean into natural ingredient innovations that amplify the effects and make a good thing even better.
Newly boosted Stress Repair Concentrate+ takes the hyper-effective formula of caffeine, arnica and lifting botanicals and gives it a new spin, incorporating even more natural wrinkle-releasing ingredients that lift, smooth and visibly refine the eye area. Why upgrade an already powerful formula? Since the original launch in 2003, several new powerful ingredients were discovered that promised to elevate it to new levels of effectiveness. “We sourced the most advanced scientific ingredients that allow us to do everything the original formula did, but better and faster,” Sylvie says.
"Wild Indigo has been shown to reduce skin’s own overexpression of cortisol after overexposure to pollutants—and you can see effects starting at 2 weeks."
The original Stress Repair Concentrate formula contained 12 botanicals strategically blended to target signs of aging. In its reformulation, the addition of 5 new actives, including Bell Pepper Stem Cell extract, Wild Indigo, and Bionymph Peptide Stem Cells Extract, amplify the already impressive effects. Marta Cammarano, Vice President of Research and Product Development, is thrilled about how effective the new ingredients are. “I’m excited about how fast-acting and multitasking these botanicals are. I particularly like the fact that Wild Indigo has been shown to reduce skin’s own overexpression of cortisol after overexposure to pollutants—and you can see effects starting at 2 weeks. I’m also proud that we adjusted the formula to target all aspects of visible eye aging: dullness, puffiness, skin redness, hyperpigmentation, and even upper eyelid sagging. It’s a really powerful formula.”
These botanical additions take the formula to new heights.
Botanical Combination of White Flowers
Arabian Jasmine from China strategically targets the eyelid, giving it a visible lift, while the Bulgarian-sourced Hawthorn flower, known in Celtic mythology as the ‘fairy tree’, improves the appearance of dark circles.
Known to soothe, this ingredient visibly reduces redness and helps eyes look more luminous.
Bell Pepper Stem Cell Extract
Another dark circle eraser, this sustainable plant stem cell also helps to de-puff the eye area.
Immediate Lifting Botanicals
A sugar-based tensing agent derived from oats gives the skin an immediate tightening, smoothing effect.
