Focus on fresh sunflower pollen – a unique and groundbreaking active ingredient!
Our fresh sunflower pollen is harvested naturally and directly from hives in the South West of France. At Olivier Claire, this rare active ingredient is collected from the legs of bees and frozen while still fresh to preserve all its beneficial properties. It is then incorporated into our formulas, in synergy with sea fennel, to form the brand’s signature duo: sea fennel native cells and fresh sunflower pollen. This duo provides comprehensive action to fight against all of the visible signs of aging.
Since its creation, the Olivier Claire brand has chosen to use fresh sunflower pollen as it is a natural source of antioxidant molecules, such as Vitamins C and E, selenium, beta-carotene and polyphenols, which act as a true shield against oxidative stress. Pollen also has plumping and regenerating properties, due to its rich content of polysaccharides, amino acids, enzymes and trace elements (Iron), which work to boost cell renewal and stimulate collagen synthesis. Finally, sunflower pollen contains vitamin B5, with moisturizing benefits.
Beware of the sun!
Summer is fast approaching, and we can't wait for it and all the warm sunshine it brings. But you should know that extended sun exposure can be harmful. Now is the time to review a few precautions you should take during and after your holidays!
Did you know that sun exposure is responsible for 80% of premature skin aging? Ultraviolet rays cause the breakdown of components essential for your skin's elasticity: collagens, elastin and hyaluronic acid. They also trigger the appearance of dark spots caused by a poor distribution of the skin pigment, melanin. Before any sun exposure, it is thus essential to protect your skin with a sun care product that has a high sun protection factor. For optimal prevention, apply Olivier Claire skin care before your sun cream; they are rich in antioxidant plant extracts (Sunflower pollen, Wheat Germ and Barbary Fig oils) and in unifying extracts which prevent the appearance of dark spots (Sea Fennel native cells, extracts of White Mulberry and Narcissus). In the evening, thanks to their regenerating botanical active ingredients (Sea Fennel native cells, Wakame and Ulva lactuca extracts) Olivier Claire products help your skin to renew itself and preserve a youthful appearance.
