ESTHEDERM

For mature skin

Women aged 50 and over strive to age harmoniously and expect lasting beauty care.

Inspired by Naos ecobiology, we present Excellage: a truly efficient line that complements the most pleasant care. Stimulation of connexins has become a promising area of expertise because it involves biological action on all levels: tissues, cells, molecules…

The ecobiological approach takes on aging by optimizing the functional processes of the skin ecosystem.

CELLULAR COMMUNICATION: THE HEART OF EXCELLAGE.

Excellage from Esthederm facilitates cellular communication to restore tissue cohesion and dermal density.

DUPUIS MAGNA

Malu Wilz – Rich Hand Cream and Mask

Did you know that a woman’s hands always show her true age? Hands talk and speak for themselves. While they sometimes betray our thoughts and emotions, they can also betray our age. Highly solicited and exposed to many stresses, hands suffer and become dryer than other body parts since they do not contain sebaceous glands. Importer and distributor for over 40 years, Dupuis Magna stands out with its exclusive offer of high-end cosmetic products and its ability to constantly renew itself. The German Malu Wilz range provides a true solution: their 2-in-1 CREAM AND RICH MASK FOR HANDS. Intensely nourishing, it is the ideal regenerating treatment for damaged and very dry hands. Rich nutrients such as Shea butter, grape seed oil and panthenol result in soft, intensely moisturized, smooth and supple skin.

BAÏJA

Vertiginous Solar Care

Initially dedicated to ancestral beauty rituals, this company’s family history keeps on renewing itself with each generation. Passionate about cosmetics and with their experience in the decoration industry, Elisabeth Arnaud and Fabrice Said of BAIJA wanted to unite the best of both worlds by creating products with addictive formulas. BAIJA offers an amazing and exclusive olfactory universe, formulated and manufactured in Mexico with ingredients of natural origin. Each universe is conceived as a couture collection where explosions of colour blend with floral and geometric elements. The Vertige Solaire collection captured our imaginations with its notes of Tuberose Bergamot, a native Mexican flower that was forbidden to young women during the Renaissance because it was believed to cause troubling thoughts. Hypnotic and tempting—it stirs up our senses. Its vertiginous and amazing scents will leave you feeling light-headed.

It is an effective and practical product because it is dry to the touch, easy to integrate into a beauty routine and reusable up to 3 times.

FRANCE LAURE

Dermolysis

Based on more than 40 years of research and constant innovation in pharmacocosmetology®, this family company offers face and body care products that meet performance and safety criteria of pharmaceutical standards. France Laure innovates through the use of biotechnology for its cosmetic formulas, manufactured here in Quebec. Skin loses its radiance with fatigue, stress or simply time. That’s why France Laure created the Dermolysis treatment, which is a deep peeling with an advanced bioactive exfoliation formula. It is activated by the action of enzymes that break down protein fibres to eliminate dead cells and impurities, refine the skin’s texture, lighten and even out the complexion. Its in-depth action cleanses pores and protects and stimulates living cells by only targeting dead cells and blackheads.

A must-have in-depth exfoliator for your professional care routine.
