Anti-Wrinkle Neck Cream by Valmont

Your daily skin care routine shouldn’t end at your chin. Wrinkles on your neck can reveal your real age, even if your face looks younger. You need to firm the skin on your face, but also on your neck, because it loses collagen and elastin over time. Contrary to popular belief, neck creams aren’t just face creams disguised under a new name. They are often thicker than facial creams and contain ingredients that help to tighten the neck skin.

Lifted and compact neck and décolleté are the dream of all women. Thanks to Valmont research the dream becomes reality!

Swiss luxury skincare brand Valmont combines anti-wrinkle and firming technology in two AWF5 lines. V-Shape Filling restores the density of plump skin, while the V-Lifting line reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Two serum and cream duos combine sensory experiences with anti-aging efficacy.

V-Neck, the new anti-wrinkle neck cream by Valmont and latest addition to the AWF5 collection, includes the Swiss Maison’s signature duo Triple DNA and Liposomed RNA. Vitamin C protects the skin by stimulating the fibroblasts that produce collagen; the fibro-boost stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. A high concentration of active ingredients ensures visible improvement: it hydrates and plumps the skin and firms the skin’s texture. Moreover, it reduces fine lines and wrinkles.

Valmont’s V-Neck Cream will be available from September in a 50 ml jar at Valmont beauty institutes and selected stores worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Valmont.

La Prairie Skin Caviar Liquid Lift

Stunning alpine scenery, expertly crafted watches, the world’s finest chocolate – Switzerland is synonymous with beautiful landscapes and masterful craftsmanship. Thanks to La Prairie, it’s also a symbol of world-class skincare.

The story begins back in 1931, when Dr. Paul Niehans started his groundbreaking work in cellular therapy at Clinique La Prairie, a Swiss clinic that has come to be known as a pristine sanctuary of innovation.

Since Niehans’ breakthrough research was published in 1960, La Prairie’s evolution has been punctuated by industry firsts, focusing on supremely high-quality ingredients, including the introduction of active ingredients sourced from caviar.

A symbol of decadence, pleasure and refined celebration since the time of the Tsars, delicate beads of caviar have always been associated with luxury, but it was La Prairie that first interpreted this into indulgence for the skin.

The house’s caviar is infused with time itself, formed in the Swiss Alps in pools enhanced with alpine spring water that has seeped through rocks for months. Having undergone this natural filtration process, the water is enhanced with the rich minerality of this ancient landscape, collecting in the perfectly balanced, closely monitored pools to create the best possible caviar.

It’s this extraordinary quality that powers the brand’s reimagination of its first gravity-defying serum: Skin Caviar Liquid Lift. This industry-leading formulation was conceived as a tribute to the iconic beads of the Skin Caviar Collection, and has been formulated by merging the brand’s two most potent and advanced caviar ingredients for the first time to create one unparalleled serum.

Continuing the theme of masterful Swiss engineering, even the packaging is a work of technological prowess; the sculptural, minimalist cobalt blue flacon not only looks magnificent on any dressing table, it also features a breakthrough mechanism that activates the caviar beads and blends them into a silky serum. With one click, the beads are transformed before the eyes so that it truly feels like the work of magic.

Indeed, the formula is something close to a youth-prolonging magic potion. The new Skin Caviar Liquid Lift merges La Prairie’s two advanced caviar ingredients in a serum. Caviar Premier features a mix of biomolecules, including lipids, proteins, peptides, DNA, carbohydrates and their building blocks, such as amino acids, nucleotides and sugars. These are blended with La Prairie’s biomimetic Caviar Peptide that has been designed based on the amino acid sequence of a specific caviar protein.

La Prairie’s scientists have also developed Caviar Absolute, a highly concentrated form of caviar which is obtained using an extraction process to isolate the two most abundant ingredients in caviar – caviar oils and caviar proteins. The formula is further enhanced with La Prairie’s iconic Exclusive Cellular Complex, which gives energy back to the skin.

To source a unique Swiss caviar in the Swiss Alps, La Prairie has entered into a collaboration with a specialized Swiss artisanal cultivator. The short distance between the sturgeon habitat and La Prairie’s Swiss laboratories in which the ingredient transformation process takes place guarantees an optimal quality of caviar ingredients.

The two key ingredients at its core are Caviar Premier and Caviar Absolute. The former augments natural caviar extract with ‘caviar mimetics’, which push the boundaries of its performance, while the latter is created by isolating oils and proteins (the two most abundant ingredients in caviar) to capture their power. While Premier gives skin an unrivalled lift, Absolute works to visually enhance the volume that can be lost with age.

Together, the potent ingredients work to undo the inescapable effects of time and gravity, visibly lifting, resculpting contours and recapturing harmony and smoothness of tone and texture. The advanced formulation is further enhanced by La Prairie’s Exclusive Cellular Complex, which targets essential cells to refresh and breathe new energy into them.

Housed in two separate chambers, the caviar beads and milky emulsion are freshly blended with a press of the activation button for a seamless transformation. The chrome pump diffuses the perfect dose of the serum. Apply AM/PM to face, neck and décolleté, avoiding eye area.

Like all La Prairie products, it’s a pleasure to use, melting into skin like silk and immediately granting a signature tensing sensation to give an instant lift.

With continued use over time, the skin appears increasingly lifted and firmed, with elasticity enhanced and fine lines and wrinkles noticeably minimised, for a more harmonious look. To further enhance the gravity-defying effects? Just layer the serum over with La Prairie’s Skin Caviar Luxe Cream or Skin Caviar Luxe Sleep Mask.

French artist Cyril Lancelin has created an immersive installation that plays with an accumulation of metal gold spheres inspired by the aesthetics of La Prairie’s signature caviar bead: simple and pure in shape as an evocation of beauty. With the repetition of the spheres, the artist duplicates the unit of measure of space and time, giving the piece a sense of temporality. Aligned in stacks, the spheres appear to emerge from the floor in an ascension, defying gravity.

The sphere evokes perfection and purity. It is also, of course, the form of the globe on which we live. This form transcribes for me a communion between nature and technology.

Cyril Lancin

The installation 96 Spheres is made of 14 columns of golden steel spheres. Viewers can enter the installation and experience it kinetically. In the reflections of the golden pillars, the viewer is central without playing the principal role.

In honour of the exceptional landscape and timeless beauty of Switzerland, La Prairie has chosen to continue its support of the glacier-related research being conducted by the Glaciology Section at ETH Zurich. Donating a proportion of online proceeds to the protection of glaciers, the house hopes to preserve and protect this endangered landscape – and its greatest source of inspiration.

La Prairie Skin Caviar Liquid Lift is available in a 50ml flacon at La Prairie Institutes and selected stores worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of La Prairie.

Valmont’s Fortifying Probiotic Skincare


The growing obsession with wellness has mutated from what was once a craze to what we now consider as part of our daily lifestyle. From plant-based diets and beauty supplements to clean and green beauty brands, the unstoppable wellness train has done us good. And the word around town right now is probiotics – the gut-healthy factor has gone beyond the digestive system to our skincare.

Just as we’ve grown to embrace the benefits of good bacteria for ourgut, so have brands. And with that, more and more of them have adopted the same microbiome science (balancing the skin’s ecosystem) to better the quality of skin. A strong advocate of the cause is the Swiss luxury skincare specialist Valmont.

Valmont’s Primary line introduces prebiotic and probiotic skincare that’s packed with ingredients to stabilize the skin’s ecosystem. The Swiss Maison’s debut range of microbiome skincare products is focused on three main ingredients: lactobacillus pentosus, provitamin B5 and prebiotic sugars. Combined, these ingredients help to support the skin’s natural defenses against environmental aggressors.

Valmont’s latest future-facing collection leads the pack when it comes to microbiome advancement for beauty. It’s newly formulated product line, Primary is a collection designed to promote the stability of the skin’s ecosystem using pro and prebiotics.

Comprising five products to be used alone or together, Primary is food for the skin. Just as in traditional Chinese medicine or homeopathy, the concept is all about balance. For Valmont, that means infusing good bacteria into our routine. These peacekeeping elements maintain the skin’s pH at an optimal level by breaking down irritants and converting the molecules into healthy good bacteria byproducts that feed the skin.

Using ultra-high-temperature (UHT) sterilisation, every Primary product is contamination free. The process eliminates all microorganisms, leaving the product entirely natural and allowing us to reap maximum benefit.

Valmont Primary Veil


Valmont’s new collection covers all microbiome skin needs. Its Primary Veil is an everyday prepping mist that’s so light and airy the skin feels refreshed without any hint of residue. Considered the breakfast smoothie for the skin, the probiotic formula wakes it up with a boost of energy. Infused with jojoba esters to restore the intercellular cement skin damage and lithium-rich Swiss thermal-spring water to soothe inflammation, the skin is reinforced and ready to face the day.


Valmont Primary Serum


For the times when the skin is tired and the immune system is falling behind, the Primary Serum is here to the rescue. The anti-redness repairing serum regulates the microcirculation of the skin and re-tones dilated capillaries (so long, rosacea and flushed cheeks). While tending to the matte of redness, it also features restorative agents that strengthen the barrier function, meaning there’s only the slimmest possibility that reoccurring redness will return to haunt you.


Valmont Primary Cream


For mornings or afternoons, the Primary Cream protects and preserves. The next step from the Primary Serum, the Cream replaces irritation with calmness. When your skin feels sore, hot or tingly, even the gentlest caress can be torture, Primary Cream rapidly alleviates irritation thanks to Insta-Calm, an active ingredient that blunts sensory receptors. It provides a surge of provitamin B5 to the epidermis and ups the skin’s flora for even greater barrier defence. Its fine, emollient texture immediately provides well-being for demanding skin.


Valmont Primary Pomade


This next-generation balm plunges deep into the epidermis to deliver its myriad virtues. No matter how hard we try to avoid it, the skin inevitably has its dry, exhausted or vulnerable days when we need to handle it with care. Using passionfruit unsaponifiables, mimosa wax, shea butter, carrot and primrose oil, Valmont’s Primary Pomade is the extraindulgent TLC for when our skin feels helpless. The exact opposite of heavy skin butters, Primary Pomade is delightfully light yet powerfully hydrating. By mimicking the intercellular layers of the skin, it’s able to penetrate into the depths of the epidermis to comfort and nourish it from the inside out.


Valmont Primary Solution


Primary was so thoughtfully designed that it even has a product for the occasional spot. Sloughing away the dead skin cell buildup, Primary Solution treats special areas of concern. Dry patch or zit, treat targeted problem zones to reregulate the pH again.

While the luxury brand is known for its anti-aging treatments, its new skincare range applies its expertise to protection and fortification for all skin types.

Valmont’s Primary Collection is available at Valmont Institutes and selected stores worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Valmont.





Maison Valmont Debuts a Skin-Care Atelier at Le Meurice in Paris

Already ensconced in some of the world’s most glamorous hotels, including Hôtel Plaza Athénée in New York and Four Seasons in Tokyo, La Maison Valmont is expanding its reach with a new flagship store at Paris’s Le Meurice, the famous palace and resort for kings and queens, artists, intellectuals and customers from all over the world, just across from the Tuileries Gardens.

Nestled in the heart of the emblematic rue de Castiglione, within the hotel Le Meurice, the boutique covers an area of 52 m2 and presents the subtle cosmetics and perfumes created by Sophie Vann-Guillon for the Valmont group, in a space designed by Didier Guillon.

“We wanted to offer to the Valmont brand a Parisian cradle that reflects our inspirations. This is why we have chosen to strengthen our collaboration with the Hotel Le Meurice by opening La Maison Valmont pour Le Meurice”, says Didier Guillon, president and artistic director of the Valmont Group.

“The space is elegant with its minimalism, reflecting the sobriety and clean lines of these immaculate white spaces”, says Didier Guillon, The design was conceived with Martine Courtault, an interior designer and longtime friend of Guillon, who shares, “For me, it is the perfect tandem in complete harmony.”

The focal point of the jewel-box like boutique, which complements the brand’s existing spa in the hotel, is a sculptural spiral staircase that ferries guests to a lower-level VIP room. Additionally, the space is punctuated by colorful artworks by Christy Lee Rogers, Aristide Najean, and David Tremlett, an extension of the Valmont Foundation’s mission of art patronage. “The selection of artworks that I wanted to represent, such as the imposing Murano glass chandelier created by the artist Aristide Najean, and David Tremlett’s painting, reflect my aesthetics”, Didier says.

The flagship, opening September 1, when the hotel reopens, is the continuation of a longstanding relationship between the luxury skin-care brand and the palace hotel, which chose Valmont for its Spa in 2008. Today, it’s the only Valmont Spa in Paris and just one of 35 in the world.

Here, a number of sensuous new fragrances and skin-care products will make their debuts, joining an already distinctive array heralded by leading beauty connoisseurs. “La Maison Valmont pour Le Meurice stands as a laboratory to feature Sophie Vann Guillon’s creations”, Didier Guillon tells Galerie. “The boutique will be among the first to present Storie Veneziane’s latest perfume, Mica d’Oro I. For this oriental gourmand extract, Sophie played with addictive ingredients such as rum, whipped cream, and vanilla to compose a decadent fragrance”.

Also being unveiled at the new Le Meurice location will be a limited-edition candle, the sale of which will contribute to Publicolor, a New York–based education and mentorship program, as well as an artistic new fragrance Didier has dubbed Scarface. In the future, the space will also be the launchpad for a larger redesign of La Maison Valmont’s iconic Prime Renewing Pack’s look.

The new format is upgraded with golden geometric patterns – a tribute to minimalist art. La Maison Valmont pour Le Meurice is so exciting, so Paris!

Didier Guillon

The new Parisian boutique has direct street access and connects directly to its renowned and highly lauded Valmont Spa within Le Meurice. This allows guests of the boutique to be welcomed with a personalised skin diagnosis and olfactory advice before being taken directly to the Spa for professional treatments.

Offering an exceptional service worthy of its five-star surroundings, guests can expect a personalised concierge service for the delivery of purchases in-room at the hotel or at home, a delivery service for replenishments requested by phone or online, complimentary skin diagnosis, bespoke fragrance consultations, pre-launch product discoveries and education, special events and beauty workshops, personalised gifts for birthdays, and much more.
