The history of Cosmetics 27 and Michèle Evrard
Cosmetics 27 is the brainchild of Michèle Evrard, a pharmacist and skincare expert. She spent over 20 years working in the cosmetics industry, developing products for major brands. Michèle's passion for creating natural and effective skincare led her to start her own brand, Cosmetics 27, in 2009.
It all started when, after a number of operations on her knee, she was left with scarring that was slow to heal. She discovered that Centella Asiatica, a powerful skincare ingredient that is known for its restorative and regenerative properties, had amazing healing results on her scar.
The first product that Evrard developed was Baume 27, and within it she selected three naturally purified extracts of the Centella Asiatica – Madecassoside, Asiaticoside and Asiatic Acid – for the heart of her formula, amongst 27 active ingredients, and 27 became the key number of the brand. While researching ageing, Evrard also discovered that at the age of 26, we begin to physiologically age. Therefore, 27 also represented the age that we should look at caring for the skin in this way.
“We started working with Pfeffer Sal in 2016 and they have been part of the C27 family ever since. A team of great professionals driving a unique urban skin clinic concept with the highest standards.” Michèle Evrard
Centalla Asiatica and understanding the active ingredients in Cosmetics 27 products
Cosmetics 27's products are formulated with a blend of natural ingredients that work together to nourish and protect your skin, while maintaining the skin's equilibrium.
One of the key ingredients in their products is Centella Asiatica, a plant that is native to Asia and is known as the "longevity plant". This powerful ingredient has been used for centuries in traditional medicine to treat a variety of skin conditions.
Centella Asiatica is rich in antioxidants, is hydrating and has anti-inflammatory properties. Studies have shown that it can improve skin surface hydration state and decrease in transepidermal water loss as well as exhibit anti-inflammatory properties*.
Another key ingredient in Cosmetics 27's products is hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that is found in the skin. Hyaluronic acid helps to hydrate the skin, leaving it looking plump and youthful. It also helps to improve the skin's elasticity, making it less prone to fine lines and wrinkles. It has been shown to help reduce the appearance of scars and blemishes, making it an excellent ingredient for those with acne-prone skin.
Benefits of using Cosmetics 27 in your skincare routine
The benefits of using Cosmetics 27 in your daily skincare routine are numerous. Here are just a few of the ways that their products can help to improve your skin's health and appearance:
Reducing the appearance of expression lines
Cosmetics 27's products are formulated with ingredients that help to stimulate collagen production in the skin. Collagen is a protein that is responsible for the skin's elasticity and firmness. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, which can lead to the development of fine lines and wrinkles. By stimulating collagen production, Cosmetics 27's products can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving your skin looking smoother and more youthful.
Improving skin texture and tone
The natural ingredients in Cosmetics 27's products can help to improve the texture and tone of your skin. Centella Asiatica, for example, has been shown to help improve skin hydration and elasticity, while also reducing the appearance of scars and blemishes. Hyaluronic acid helps to hydrate the skin, leaving it looking plump and radiant.
Hydrating and nourishing the skin
Cosmetics 27's products are packed with natural ingredients that help to hydrate and nourish the skin. These ingredients work together to improve the skin's moisture barrier, preventing moisture loss and leaving your skin feeling soft and supple.
Protecting from environmental stressors
The natural ingredients in Cosmetics 27's products also help to protect your skin from environmental stressors. For example, Centella Asiatica has been shown to have antioxidant properties, which can help to protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage the skin's cells, leading to premature aging.
