You will find only carefully-selected products on my shelves. I keep these under constant review by attending seminars, reading trade publications and staying abreast of the latest skin care advances. I am always eager to investigate new regenerative ingredients and treatments — as long as they truly work.
Why so many cosmetic lines? In fact, I pick and choose within each one because every brand has its strengths and weaknesses. I strive to get the best from across the spectrum of what’s available. Some of the products I’ve chosen rely on gentle aromatherapy for long-term efficacy. Others, on proven scientific breakthroughs — like fruit acids and polypeptides. The brands I currently carry and use are listed below:
The power lab with focus. From unmatched powerful combos of anti-oxidants (such as their revolutionary CE Ferulic serum) to the patented “invisible” micronized zinc oxide present in their fabulous sunscreens, SkinCeuticals keeps amazing me by its dedication to efficiency clear of hype.
The result of over 20 years of cosmeceutical lab development in Paris, Sampar skin-care products are a carefully-researched mix of aromatherapy and nano-technology research.
Pioneers in aromatherapy and phytotherapy, Yonka-Paris has an impeccable ongoing record of gentle care since 1954 in France and world-wide.
With a team that boasts more than 70 years of experience in the field of anti-aging, Dr. Louise Peck founded in 2003 HydroPeptide, a US-based skin care company dedicated to addressing the signs of maturity.
The line focuses its efforts on peptide technology to firm and improve skin tone and texture, offering the most technologically advanced methods for reducing all symptoms associated with aging skin — fine lines, deep creases, sagging epidermis, age spots, crow’s feet and dark circles. The formulas deliver 21 different peptides in order to best serve your skin’s needs; the goal is to promote healthy and beautiful skin, allowing the face to recapture its youthful glow.
All natural, chirally-correct ingredients. My favorite serums for rosacea and acne therapy.
Isabelle Gerard Private Label
I am also proud to carry my very own private label line, developed in Southern California by a team of chemists working for over two years to combine state-of-the-art performance-proven ingredients in parabens-free, phthalates and sulfates-free formulations. These top notch products aim at counteracting chronic inflammation, such as the one caused by harsh cosmetics and drugs — the root of aging according to the latest research.
