Recently, I was invited to visit an Origins outlet @ Robinsons Raffles City to preview two new additions to its Make A Difference Plus + Collection, that offers a new approach to correcting skin dehydration. Introducing NEW Make A Difference Plus + Rejuvenating Treatment and NEW Make A Difference Plus +Moisturizer. Retailing at S$78.00 (50ml) for both, these latest moisturizers are available from October 2012 onwards.
Origins, the natural skin care brand, has shown that perpetually dehydrated skin may lack a naturally occurring enzyme named Caspase-14 which helps skin produce and maintain critical moisture levels. When the skin lacks of this enzyme, skin will experience a biological deficit and faces persistent, non-resolving dryness. To address this biological deficit, Origins utilizes advanced technology to support dehydrated skin while also delivering non-stop moisture.
Make A Difference Plus + Collection
The Make A Difference Plus + Collection – including the NEW Make A Difference Plus + Rejuvenating Treatment and Make A Difference Plus + Rejuvenation Moisturizer – features a combination of potent botanical and natural ingredients that work in tandem to support skin’s vital Natural Moisturizing Factor.
Caspase-14 (shown above), together with Fillagrin (a biological protein) and Urea (an organic compound), create skin’s Natural Moisturizing Factor that produce moisture and help skin retain a natural reservoir of hydration. Origins complex of Lychee and Watermelon Extracts combined with Rhodocrosite, a red gemstone, helps boost moisture production. The result is healthy, hydrated skin.
Other ingredients found in the collection are Rose of Jericho, Micrococcus Lysate, Padina Pavonica and Murmuru Butter. An essential oil blend of Bergamot, Lemon, Orange, Spearmint, Rose and Vetiver imparts a light, refreshing scent.
Make A Difference Plus + is claimed to increase moisture levels by 75% and retain continuous moisture levels for 24 hours upon just one application. A clinical study was done and it is claimed that 96% of women who applied Make A Difference Plus + Rejuvenating Treatment for 4 weeks, showed a significant improvement in moisture and the ability to retain moisture levels for 48 hours upon one application.
