This Just Might Be the Most Powerful Serum You’ll Ever Use

The story behind how we amplified our original Bio Lifting formula with the latest scientific breakthroughs—for both immediately visible lifting and long-term anti-aging results.


Facial serums are ubiquitous these days, and for good reason. These oil-and-water-based elixirs tend to have a very high concentration of active substances that jump-start visible results. Chantecaille’s Bio Lifting Serum has been a beloved bestseller since its launch in 2011. And yet, things move swiftly in the skincare R&D world, often prompting us to revisit even the most effective formulas to make sure they’re working as much magic as possible.

“We’re constantly looking at new innovative ingredients in skincare, especially botanical ingredients, and when we find something that's incredibly effective, we want to use it!” says Olivia Chantecaille, the company’s creative director. “Often we can end up boosting a product we love by enhancing it with new ingredients that supercharge the ones we already have.”

"If I were to choose a serum based on 360-degree anti-aging properties, it would for sure be this one."
— Marta Cammarano, VP of Research and Product Development

BETTER TOGETHER
In other words, the right combination of ingredients can enhance each other’s power. “We look at a lot of ingredients and their testing to figure out which ones are more effective and which ones work toward the same benefit using different mechanisms, so they can work synergistically to give you more of the final result,” says Marta Cammarano, Chantecaille’s VP of research and product development. For instance, the serum already contained anti-wrinkle hexapeptides and that worked on the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area, “and we finally found an ingredient”—a Refining Lipopeptide—"that worked to visibly reduce the appearance of the vertical lines that are typically harder to take care of.” Moreover, emerging science has brought exciting new ingredients to market—like Cocoa Peptides, which work to protect skin against blue light pollution that triggers free radicals and causes inflammation. And a host of new plant stem cells have recently been found to visibly increase skin firmness and volume. “That’s when we decided, ‘Let’s put them all together,’” Cammarano says.

The result is Bio Lifting Serum+, a scientific powerhouse with an almost ethereally lightweight texture that effectively bottles what many women seek in more invasive cosmetic treatments. The potent actives have an immediate lifting effect while also visibly smoothing, plumping, moisturizing and protecting against blue light damage. Many of these fast-acting ingredients have a long-term anti-aging payoff as well. “This is the most powerful serum we have so far—the most comprehensive,” Cammarano says. “If I were to choose a serum based on 360-degree anti-aging properties, it would for sure be this one.”

And bonus: More than 86 percent of the serum’s ingredients are natural, including its rosewater base.
