/who we are
/skin regimen/ is the new skincare brand for urban dwellers, who want to look and feel at their best every day. As graphically represented in the logo slashes, /skin regimen/ is for those who thrive in today’s fast-paced times, yet wanting to keep their skin healthy and youthful for longer.
/skin regimen/ was created by [comfort zone], the skincare division of the family-owned company Davines. Founded in Parma, Italy in 1983, the group is guided by Dr. Davide Bollati, a cosmetic chemist and visionary entrepreneur known for his sustainable approach to beauty.
The Davines Group became a certified B Corporation in December 2016 with the purpose of making our business a source of positive impact for people and the planet.
/the home of sustainable beauty
Built on a surface of 77.000 square meters, the Davines Village covers around 11.000 square meters and includes spaces dedicated to offices, education, Research & Development laboratories, production site, warehouse and a greenhouse serving as a restaurant and co-working space. The green areas surrounding the buildings host spaces of different nature, such as a botanical garden, where you find many plant species used within our formulas.
In accordance with the Davines Group values, the Davines Village has been designed to transmit a message of profound attention towards people and environment. Transparency, lightness, nature, sustainability, community and wellness are the key words that identify the project and express themselves through the overall design, the sustainable and virtuous technical solutions and the choice of predominant materials such as glass and wood.
/fully sustainable packaging
/skin regimen/ is a CO2 neutral brand that sponsors a reforestation program to compensate for the carbon dioxide emissions caused during packaging production. It’s formulated and manufactured in our facilities in Parma, Italy, where we utilize electricity from renewable resources.
/skin regimen/ is packaged with fully recyclable materials, such as glass, sugarcane-derived plastic (green PE), safety-certified aluminum and FSC-certified paper.
The dark-stained glass blocks the whole spectrum of damaging visible light, offering optimal protection against the aging processes and lengthening durability and potency of products.
Is your lifestyle stressing your skin?
The external factors we face every day and our lifestyle choices affect the speed of aging on both skin and mind. These stressors alter the skin’s normal cellular processes, contributing to cellular breakdown and eventually hindering skin health, even in biologically young skin.
Recent studies show that the skin not only reacts to psychological stress triggered in the brain, but it’s also able to independently produce stress hormones, in response to environmental aggressions, such as pollution. Skin cortisol overproduction is one of the elements that in the short term makes us look tired, fatigued and older, and over time, fuels inflammation and oxidation, accelerating the overall aging process.
/modern plant chemistry ™
Designed to be totally functional, /skin regimen/ formulas are concentrated in powerful botanicals and high-tech molecules. Formulated with a reinvigorating natural aroma and cooling massageable textures, they do not contain any unnecessary ingredients for the skin.
The natural, genderless aroma is a modern blend of four essential oils with rebalancing, reinvigorating properties. Juniper, Copahu, Rosewood and Cedarwood extracted from resins and berries, known for providing the strength and endurance needed to face life’s challenges.
The aroma has been clinically tested and found to be ’not irritating‘, based on 48-hours closed patch test, on 25 people, 18-70 years old.
/skin regimen/ is enriched with our Longevity Complex™ an exclusive mix of organic superfood extracts (spinach, maqui berry and wild indigo) and a high-tech molecule (carnosine), counteracting the effects of stress and aging accelerators.
The Spinach we are using in our formulas, Spinacia Oleracea Viroflay, was inspired by the principle of bio-diversity. This ancient variety has proved to be particularly rich in Vitamin B1, B6 and B9 (Folic Acid) compared to others. With this, we decided to grow and harvest it in Parma, Italy, with the cooperation of local farmers.
/mind & skin empowerment
A modern skincare approach that empowers you from inside out, working on the skin while also improving the mind, and on the mind to improve the skin.
In cooperation with Prof. Andrea Sgoifo Stress Physiologist of the University of Parma, /skin regimen/ has been clinically proven to improve the stress response.
An independent pilot clinical test was conducted on 40 women, 25-50 years old, who have applied /skin regimen/ Microalgae Essence and Tripeptide Cream following the /skin regimen/ Mindful Massage ritual, twice a day for 28 days. The measurements were based on ECG recordings, saliva sample collection and psychometric/behavioral testing.
