NEW: PRESERVED VINTAGE PLANT CREAMS

    ? For the first time ever, innovative research has succeeded in preserving natural

    bioactive plant molecules in their original state from the plant to the skin.

PIONEER IN PHYTO-DERMATOLOGICAL RESEARCH

    ? 18 years of research into skin problems were necessary for ALMA CARMEL

    and her team of researchers to rationalise the bases of modern skin

    phytopharmacy.

    ? Patented formulas based on specific combinations of fresh plants, were

    developed for the treatment of skin problems such as psoriasis, acne, eczema

    and hyperseborrhea.

    ? The plant formulas were certified ECOCERT “environmentally-friendly -

    organic”. This certification defines a certain level of checks and quality

    throughout the production chain.

    ? From these discoveries, Laboratoire ALMA CARMEL has just created a range

    of five cosmetic skincare products for the general public.

AWARDS

    ? Research by Laboratoire ALMA CARMEL is supported by Aid to Innovation

    granted by ANVAR (Ministry for Research and New Technologies).

PROVEN EFFICACY

    Study conducted in June 2004 on 60 subjects aged between 30 and 60 years, after 4

    weeks of application.

    In those aged under 46, the ALMA CARMEL Vérité range: - reduces imperfections and desquamation

    In those aged 46 and over, the ALMA CARMEL Vérité range: - reduces the sebum secretion rate

    - reduces the number of wrinkles in the crow's feet area - reduces imperfections

    - improves skin hydration

    - reduces redness

Significant results obtained under dermatological control by an independent

    laboratory (DERMEXPERT skin explorations laboratory).

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What makes the ALMA CARMEL Vérité range SO SPECIAL?

All the products are manufactured directly from fresh vintage fruits and vegetables

    selected with care for their quality and guaranteed content of active substances. Fresh

    plants mean no extraction, pasteurisation, synthesis or recomposition of ingredients.

    All are pure and natural, and more than 85% are produced organically.

    Natural concentrates are added to Neroli essential oil, pure first-pressing vegetable oil

    and natural spring water.

    So the patented formulas combine preserved concentrated active ingredients with

    an effective carrier.

The whole range is certified ECOCERT "environmentally-friendly organic".

    This certification defines a certain level of checks and quality throughout the

    production chain.

Many cosmetics claim they contain natural active ingredients.

    What makes ALMA CARMEL creams DIFFERENT from these other products?

Many active ingredients such as vitamins are used in the composition of cosmetics.

    But these substances are very fragile. In only 2 days, 50% of vitamin C degrades in

    contact with oxygen or light. The question really is how much of these substances still

    exists in its active form in traditional products when they are applied to the skin.

That's why such a major part of the research at the ALMA CARMEL laboratories has

    been devoted to developing a manufacturing technique involving cryogenisation,

    unique in the world of cosmetics! All the active molecules are thereby preserved.

    The creams are protected from oxygen, pollution and UV from manufacture until they

    reach their final packaging.

For the first time ever, all the active substances are preserved in their original state,

    from plant to skin.

What is the purpose of CRYOGENISATION?

Once they have been washed, cut and the pips removed, the plants are cryocrushed at

    a TEMPERATURE OF -170?C, which allows all the active molecules to be

    preserved without deteriorating.

    ALMA CARMEL creams are the only creams to be manufactured under vacuum and

    stored in nitrogen - a natural, neutral, non-oxidising gas.

    This method, unique in the world of cosmetic skin care, protects the precious active substances from oxygen and pollution from the atmosphere.

    Why do ALMA CARMEL products come in SPECIAL PACKAGING with an ALUMINIUM SLEEVE?

    This very individual packaging helps to PRESERVE the bioactivity of the molecules and natural plant enzymes by protecting them from the atmosphere and light.

    The product is packed under vacuum in AIRLESSYSTEMS bottles with a hermetically sealed anti-UV sleeve. This flexible sleeve protects the creams from oxidation and atmospheric pollution and its external aluminium coating protects the active substances from light, particularly the harmful effects of UV radiation.

The packaging is different from pots of cream exposed to the atmosphere and light

    where there is repeated contact with the user's fingertips... all factors that help cause

    the product to deteriorate.

What is BIOACTIVITY?

    Vitamins and especially enzymes should be seen as living things. If after being harvested and during the manufacturing process they are kept in a MOLECULAR STATE CLOSE TO THEIR ORIGINAL STATE, they are referred to as bioactive.

    ALMA CARMEL products include many active substances preserved in this way,

    such as vitamins, sugars, amino acids, alpha hydroxyacids, etc. (606 different types of molecule within the Vérité range).

Through the technologies used to process and store ALMA CARMEL products,

    bioactivity is preserved until application and penetration of the skin.

Do ALMA CARMEL creams REALLY WORK?

    Yes, it's SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN!

    Since 1992, clinical tests have been conducted in many countries such as France,

    Israel, China, etc.

    The results have shown significant effectiveness of the whole Vérité range as well

    as excellent tolerance.

What SPECIFIC ACTION do products in the Alma Carmel Vérité range have?

    The 606 molecules preserved have several biological effects on the skin:

    POWERFUL action against free radicals preserved with antioxidants, flavonoids, carotenoids, tomato lycopenes, cucumber peroxidases and peach polyphenoloxidases.

    IMPROVED metabolism of skin lipids through phytosterols, which reorganise membrane cholesterol, and campesterols that restore cell membranes.

    RESTORATION of dermal structure through vitamins and carbohydrates that

    participate in the formation of plant fibre with the same chemical structure as

    subcutaneous tissue.

    BETTER cell renewal in the epidermis with alpha hydroxyacids.

INCREASED epidermal permeation through terpene from peaches, allowing the

    different active principles effective epidermal penetration to reach their biochemical

    target.

    Why are ALMA CARMEL products SO EFFECTIVE?

Alma Carmel skincare products, THROUGH THEIR RICH COMPOSITION, offer

    a triple hydrating, protecting and revitalising action.

The HYDRATING action of alpha-hydroxyacids or fruit acids has been described for

    many years and is partly responsible for the skin's radiance and smoothness.

    The PROTECTING action is due to the addition of perfectly preserved antioxidants (48 different molecules) and flavonoids (90 different molecules), which block the

    negative effects of oxidating stress.

The REVITALISING action is due to dermal and epidermal protein synthesis

    stimulated by the fruit acids. Vitamin C and amino acids stimulate the activity of dermal fibroblasts.

    So ALMA CARMEL products protect, revive and revitalise skin cells. The application of ALMA CARMEL creams sometimes gives a SENSATION of

    WARMTH. Is this normal?

The synergy of the selected natural active ingredients is the reason for the effects

    associated with the activation of skin cells: slight redness (lasting 10 to 30 minutes), a

    feeling of warmth (lasting 5 to 15 minutes).

    Once these effects have disappeared the complexion is clearer and has a new, natural

    radiance.

    These effects are normal and are linked to the positive action of the products on the tissue activation process.

    This is additional proof of the EFFECTIVENESS OF THE PRODUCTS.

I've recently heard about risks associated with parabens. Are ALMA CARMEL

    PRODUCTS SAFE?

Yes, there is increasing concern about the risks to health from parabens, even when

    applied to the skin. Media coverage of this harmful phenomenon from cosmetic

    products has caused a furore among the general public.

Once again, ALMA CARMEL's philosophy is innovative. All products in the range

    are recognised as ECOCERT certified “ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY ORGANIC

    SKIN COSMETICS. They contain NO PARABENS and can therefore be used on skin cells in complete safety.
