Based on a biomimetic approach, skin tolerates best those formulae that most resemble it. French cosmetics company Clarins used this concept to develop its Double Serum, which debuted in 1985 in two separate bottles, one as a hydric phase and its non-identical twin, a lipidic phase.
"We aim to replicate the ratio of the hydrolipidic film and the dual nature of skin cells. With biomimetic skincare, more or less you add a copy of a hydrolipidic film on your skin. Basically we need to keep the skin in the right hydrolipidic balance, and this weakens with age, making the skin drier," said director of Clarins Laboratories, Eric Gooris.
Hence the twin serum became a potential anti-ageing treatment that has been been upgraded over the past 27 years and integrated into one product. Launched this month in Thailand, the fifth version, dubbed the Gold Double Serum, comes in a double-chamber bottle with a pump system to release both phases and their active ingredients.
