BIO-EXTRACTS Lamellar System®
This cream is developed using the BIO-EXTRACTS Lamellar System®.
The Lamellar System is the next generation emulsifier which mimics the structure of the skin’s natural layers. Due to the cutting-edge Lamellar technology, BIO-EXTRACTS moisturisers create a bond with your skin and absorb instantly. This innovative technology enables us to increase the strength and concentration of the bio-actives and deliver them more effectively.
BIO-EXTRACTS Lamellar System® is 100% natural and derived from plants. Formulated through the combination of purified molecules from rapeseed, coconut oils and sugar cane.
It instantly gratifies the skin with moisture and carries the most potent actives into the skin’s inner layers. It protects active ingredients so that they work throughout the day providing your skin with rapid transformation and lasting protection.
The highly potent Youth Capsule® is at the heart of every BIO-EXTRACTS ultra-strength Boost. This technology delivers key active plant molecules right to the areas of your skin where they are most needed. Youth Capsule® holds within it the power to transform the skin’s appearance, nourishing it with the most precious plant bio-extracts.
We formulated the Youth Capsule® as a transport system helping other ingredients penetrate deeper into your skin to hydrate and nourish from within.
For best results, mix 1 to 2 shots of the Boost with your chosen BIO-EXTRACTS Lamellar System Face Moisturiser. Alternatively, apply the serum directly to the areas of concern and massage gently into the skin.
Rice Micro-particles (Oryza sativa bio-extract)
Since the first recorded rice plantations in China and Southern and Eastern Asia, which date back to 2000 BC, it was known that this crop has unparalleled ability to relieve skin inflammation as well as cleanse and soften the skin. In Japan, where rice has been the most cultivated crop for over 2000 years, women would bathe and wash in the water used for cleaning rice. This would keep their skin smooth and porcelain-like and their hair silky.
The potent antimicrobial and disinfectant properties of rice micro-particles encourage clear, smooth, healthy skin. This natural oil-absorbent ingredient has a highly efficient exfoliating action, performed without disturbing the skin’s barrier or stimulating the sebum glands. The rice micro-particles are so fine you can’t feel or see them in your cream or on the skin surface.
Wu-Zhu-Yu fruit bio-extract (Evodia rutaecarpa bio-extract)
Otherwise known as Evodia Rutaecarpa, this is one of the strongest acting herbs used in Traditional Chinese Medicine that remain in use today. It enhances microcirculation, enabling more blood to travel through the blood vessels speeding up recovery of cells. This prevents skin weakening and damage.
It has been proven by thousands of years of traditional medicinal practice to significantly improve the skin’s brightness, radiance and texture (IEC, 2010). The skin is left revitalised with a healthy light pink colour. Complexion remains luminous and has more even appearance.
Most importantly, it is known to fight inflammation. Contemporary studies show that it is significantly more powerful than chamomile which is commonly used for this purpose (Yarosh et al, 2006).

Wild jujube bio-extract (Zizyphus spinosa seed bio-extract)
Native to northern China, Wild Jujube’s seeds have been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for generations due to its known ability to decrease cell damage. Jujube extract is known to prevent the appearance of wrinkles and scars, as well as keep the skin energised by increasing oxygen in the blood. Oxygen is vital for skin’s ability to create new cells. Which is why we chose Wild jujube for our Firming Boost. Recently it was discovered that this plant also protects against gamma radiations and cell damage caused by them as well as against oxidative damage.
Maral root bio-extract (Rhaponticum carthamoides bio-extract)
Native to southern Siberia, this powerful antioxidant agent improves blood flow and increases skin’s resistance to lack of oxygen, boosting its energy potential and helping to delay ageing. During World War II, Russia sent a scientific expedition to Siberia in search for plants with healing and energising properties. This is how the Moral Root was found. After extensive secret studies, the Soviet army included it as a medicine. A few years later, it was discovered that it increases protein synthesis. Most results were considered a military secret and, therefore, they were not published in scientific journals, but the fact that it is included in the Russian Pharmacopoeia since 1984 is a proof of the value given to this plant.
Even Skin Boost:
Rye Bran bio-extract (Secale cereale bio-extract)
Used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to alleviate fatigue and boost energy, rye is now known as the ‘New Gold’ in skincare. This highly nutritious bio-extract holds countless benefits for the skin. It provides skin with clarity and luminosity. Powerful antioxidants combat free radicals to help protect the skin from environmental aggressors. Its high content of minerals, including calcium, iron and zinc plays a vital role in easing the signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles.
