New Clarté & Confort Line Reduces Redness, Calms Irritation
& Reinforces the Skin's Vascular System - Breakthrough Line Dramatically
Improves Fragile, Redness-Prone Skin Using Advanced Polyphenol Pharmacology
(April 20, 2005)-Is your face in a perpetual state of flush or blotchiness?
Does your face become red after a spicy meal or a few drinks? Do dry,
painful red patches or spidery looking veins appear on your cheeks and
nose when the weather changes? If you've answered yes to one or more
of these conditions then you most likely have fragile, redness-prone
skin. Desperate for a skin care solution that not only immediately soothes
and reduces redness and irritation but can also prevents these symptoms
in the first place?
SOTHYS PARIS, the professional skincare leader, introduces Clarté
& Confort, a new professional skin care line clinically-proven
to regulate, soothe and protect redness-prone skin with fragile capillaries.
Based on the latest advancements in pharmacology, the four Clarté
& Confort skin care formulas draw upon the healing power
of polyphenols, molecules derived from fruits and vegetable that penetrate
deeply into the skin to soothe inflammation, protect skin against
free radicals and reinforce the skin's venous system that is at the
root of the dilemma.
"As common as fragile, redness-prone skin is, it is still the
most commonly misdiagnosed and mistreated skin type in the world,"
said Christian Garces, President of Sothys U.S.A. "Clarté
& Confort is the first skin care system designed to not only delivers
an immediate improvement in redness and irritation, but also strengthens
and protects the circulatory system of fragile skin to prevent these
Understating Fragile, Redness-Prone Skin
When skin is healthy, its vascular system ensures the skins' many
layers efficiently receive much needed nutrients and oxygen, as well
as eliminate metabolic wastes. It easily adapts to temperature changes,
maintaining blood pressure in the veins balanced. When skin is fragile,
prone to redness, the skin:
Does not adapt to temperature easily, resulting
in hypersensitivity to extreme heat or cold.
Has a slow venous circulation; blood flow is slow,
capillaries are open and the redness shows.
Has weakened, altered blood vessel walls resulting
in broken capillaries that are visible on the surface of the skin.
Triggering factors include alcohol, spicy food, hot drinks, extreme
temperature changes, stress and emotions. Factors that aggravate e
skin with fragile capillaries include sun and cold exposure.
Breakthrough Polyphenol Technology
Polyphenols, the fruit- and vegetable-derived molecules renowned for
their remarkable ability to protect the skin to deliver their soothing
and antioxidant benefits, have been blended with other natural extracts
to dramatically increase the performance of the Clarté &
Confort system. The four Clarté & Confort formulas
contain a power-packed blend that includes:
Mint Polyphenols to help regulate the skin's venous
network, and immediately cool and calm skin discomfort.
Hazel Leaf Polyphenols to help restructure and reinforce
the skin's capillaries' resistance, and also improve the micro-circulation.
A concentrated Polyphenol blend of Lemon, Bilberry
and Little Holly to deliver powerful venous system regulation and
An Active Yeast Extracts rich in polysaccharides
and Vitamin PP that increases capillary resistance and reduces vascular
congestion, thus contributing to the restructuring of the venous
system to facilitate blood flow.
Shea and Wild Mango butters to deeply hydrate and
nourish the skin, and smooth dry, irritated patches.
