“Tradition is a lantern. The foolish hold on to it. The clever allow it to lead the way,” said the famous Irish playwright and politician George Bernard Shaw. We think he was right. In the past several months we have worked hard on a gentle, tradition-conscious and yet bold new presentation of our brand profile. All products and media have been redesigned. Our new and improved system-based skin care series ZZ SENSITIVE (p.8) is first to have its makeover. On p.22, you can find our newly developed, innovative and vegan intensive concentrate in the BEAUTY SHOTS, which will be sure to deliver an instant impact. This new redesign applies not only to individual advertising media, but in fact to our whole customer magazime, NATURAL WOMAN. You are holding the first redesigned issue in your hands right now! The new design will make our products and their unique method of action even easier to recognize in the future. Our new quality seal (p. 21) shows at a glance what makes our effective natural cosmetics so special and what we, a company from the Black Forest in operation since 1959, stand for: a pioneering scientific spirit, quality in everything we do, and a respectful, responsible attitude towards nature.

The skin becomes stressed. In addition to containing innovative active substances, ZZ SENSITIVE products were developed specifically without substances that could trigger allergies or reactions. They contain no fragrances, dyes or preservatives.

1 APPLY A BASE Apply a mid-intensity eyeshadow on the entire lid up to the crease (e.g. ANNEMARIE BÖRLIND Silver). Then apply a darker color just above the lid and in the crease, optionally with a lighter color directly under the eyebrow. Gently blend with a brush. 2 FRAME THE EYES Place your eyeliner pencil at the center of the lash line and draw a line to the outer corner of the eye. Then move your pencil to the inner corner of the eye and draw another line that connects with the fi rst. Frame the lower eyelid with liner. If you want, you can use kohl eyeliner to further intensify the lid line.

3 APPLY MASCARA Apply a thick coat of mascara to the lashes, or better yet, two coats. Important – the eyebrows should be natural, but well-groomed and carefully shaped. Use an eyebrow pencil to correct or fill in your brows as necessary.

Black or nothing at all? No way! Smoky eyes work just as well with violet and gray hues. Mossy green and dark brown harmonize well with warm eye colors, while ocean hues make blue eyes sparkle.

Because it is so striking, this look is usually inappropriate for work. Smoky eyes are enough to turn heads by themselves, so your lipstick color should be more neutral. Choose a delicate nude hue for your lips that does not compete with your eyes.

It is home to several galleries and rooms for permanent collection and temporary exhibits. For a charming stroll, try the ‘Coulée verte René-Dumont’ (3). This green belt in the heart of the city follows an old railway line and is lined with beds of perennials, trees and potted plants. It extends for four and a half kilometers, partly on wooden walkways, and is slightly elevated from the Place de la Bastille until shortly before the Bois de Vincennes. It's the perfect location to relax and unwind after a museum visit or a morning shopping excursion. At the beginning of the ‘Coulée verte’ is located ‘Le Viaduc des Arts’.

NATURAL DADO SENS DERMACOSMETICS care for skin with innovation based on medical research.

The interplay of moisture and oil is crucial. Dry skin thirsts for both. Substances such as urea, panthenol, and hyaluronic acid moisturize skin and foster its ability to retain moisture. Vegetable oils like borage seed and evening primrose oil, closely resemble the skin’s own oils, which ensures that moisture is locked into the skin and that the hydro lipid mantle can regenerate. This process is facilitated by substances such as vegetable squalene. It leaves skin soft but not oily. A similar compound is a part of skin’s protective acid mantle. Dry, tight skin is especially unpleasant in the eye area and quickly becomes visible in the form of small lines and wrinkles. The skin is extremely thin here and contains few sebum and sweat glands. In addition to the eyes blinking approximately 10,000 times a day, skin in the eye area is also put under strain by heating and air conditioning and exposure to UV rays. Products with hydrating substances such as hyaluronic acid improve the skin’s look and feel. Polyunsaturated fatty acids in vegetable oils such as Inca peanut oil strengthen the skin

“I am especially fascinated by researching plankton and algae.”

t could be a playground for giants – massive stone blocks twisted into bizarre forms and figures, rugged boulders and steep cliffs interspersed with elongated bays and deserted beaches. The rocks shimmer pink in the light, the air fills with water droplets as the blustery waves of the Atlantic break on the coast. Water has shaped the land here for thousands of years. It was with good reason that the Celts referred to Brittany as ‘Armor,’ the land of the sea. This region in the northwest of France is home to countless natural wonders – and to Guylaine Le Loarer. The Head of Research and Development for BÖRLIND GmbH grew up next to the sea, full of curiosity about this ecosystem and its inhabitants.

She has always been especially fascinated by algae, which has lived in the ocean’s ecosystem for around three billion years. Sometimes being just a few micrometers in size, they are now the start of the ocean food chain. The millions and millions of tiny organisms, together known as phytoplankton, drift in the seawater, obtaining the energy they need for life from sunlight and carbon dioxide. An enormous number of these tiny maritime dwellers – around 40,000 different types – have been identified so far, but scientists believe there are at least ten times that number. Research, however, is focusing on the macroalgae with which we are much more familiar. Guylaine Le Loarer and her team have been able to harvest

An interview with... Guylaine Le Loarer

Unlocking plankton’s secrets

phytoplankton increase the synthesis of proteins that are involved in differentiation of keratinocytes, thus activating cellular regeneration. Both mechanisms of action promote better epidermal cohesion, dead skin cells are shed much faster and the skin feels smoother.

How is the main active substance harvested from microorganisms? What does biotechnological mean?

How long should the application period last? When will I see results? Direct effects are visibly immediately after the first application. Good examples of this are the HYDRO BOOSTER and the VITAMIN ENERGIZER. These intensive concentrates can be used for both longer and shorter application periods. SOS SENSITIVE intensive concentrate provides fast relief, in particular for stressed skin, while the ANTI-AGING REVITALIZER smooths skin by 15 per cent after 28 days of application.

The phytoplankton comes from a special ecosystem in France, the Aber Benoît River, which flows into the Atlantic. The manufacturer of the active ingredient was able to isolate a unique, natural sugar molecule, Exopolysaccharide 15, from the phytoplankton. The molecule in this particular form is produced exclusively by this phytoplankton. For sustainability reasons, the microorganism is isolated and cultivated in special bioreactors. There the microorganism releases its special sugar molecule onto a medium from which it can then be harvested. This makes it possible to control the production process. In addition, the chemical structure and purity of the special sugar molecule are always reproducible, which is beneficial considering that the molecule cannot be found in any other organism on land and exists only in this delta estuary.

THE POWER OF THE PLANKTON The name says it all. BEAUTY SHOTS have an immediate, targeted impact, just like a shot. The slim dispensers are filled with intensive concentrates that lead to visible skin care results after just a short application period. Their innovative formulas are tailored to a variety of skin needs, irrespective of users’ age. ANNEMARIE BÖRLIND produces them with revolutionary active ingredients that only Mother Nature could come up with. All of the vegan BEAUTY SHOTS are based on a substance harvested from phytoplankton with the aid of biotechnology. “It is no coincidence,” says the Breton Le Loarer with a laugh, “that I specialize in biotechnological research on algae and plankton.” This region in the west of France contains the largest algae field in Europe.

QUESTIONS

ANNEMARIE BÖRLIND is eliciting hidden beauty potential from other plants as well. Szechuan pepper in the ANTI AGING REVITALIZER, for example, helps to relax the facial features. It is enhanced by an oil derived from the sap droplets of the Greek mastic pistachio. “It stimulates the skin’s youthful genes. This activates the synthesis of proteins that are responsible for firm, youthful skin and that reduce fine lines and wrinkles,” explains the Head of Research and Development for BÖRLIND GmbH. She and her team subjected all of the BEAUTY SHOTS to strict tests for biocompatibility and effectiveness. Applied to cleansed skin, the intensive concentrates are absorbed almost instantly and, as if by magic, the skin radiates with the power of the sea and its plants.
