On November 23-24 2011, CHANEL Research & Technology (CHANEL R&T) held back-to-back press conferences for respectively the beauty and scientific press showcasing the results of our cross-disciplinary studies on hydration and Chinese women.
Researchers from CHANEL R&T highlighted how social status, personal lifestyle and habits as well as regional climate are all important factors heavily impacting women’s, especially Chinese women’s hydration needs and moisturizer choices. Swimming, air-conditioning and air travel were also found to heavily impact the amount of water present in one’s skin. Additionally, it was discovered how polyactive ingredients derived from the Carob pulp, the camellia, and a product produced by the Thermus Termophilus were all found to act on the biological mechanisms of the skin for long term hydration. These active ingredients can then be combined in different formulations to create a range of textures catering to the uniqueness of every woman’s skin.
