One look through influencer and artist Willabelle Ong‘s Instagram (@willamazing) feed and you’ll be immediately greeted with a burst of florals. The 27-year-old professes that flowers have been part of many milestones in her life, and having them at home brightens up the space and uplifts her mood.
I find that flowers truly have a ‘healing effect’, they remind me to slow down, relax and stay mindful amidst a fast-paced lifestyle.Willabelle Ong
It comes as no surprise then that Willabelle turns to Chanel SUBLIMAGE — a luxurious skincare range rich in floral extracts — for her skincare needs (she has been using it for the last two-and-a-half years). Imbued with floral extracts from vanilla planifolia, solidago and anthyllis, the Chanel SUBLIMAGE range is not only efficacious at protecting skin against premature ageing, it also offers a luxurious sensorial experience.
“I love that the range focuses on sensoriality; its texture, scent, and ritual is something I look forward to daily,” shares Willabelle. “For me, I feel more confident, fulfilled, and empowered knowing that my skin is at its best.”
At the heart of the SUBLIMAGE formulation is an extract derived from the vanilla planifolia, an orchid that spawns the vanilla pods. Chanel Research uncovered the flower’s ability to promote cell regeneration through an intricate 12-step polyfractioning process to form the Enriched Planifolia PFA, the primary active ingredient found in the SUBLIMAGE range. This precious compound is rich in polyketones, and can stimulate growth factors in the skin responsible for skin density, firmness, hydration, elasticity and radiance.
The French Alps is home to many wild plant species native only to that area. Over 500 wild plant species were studied by Chanel Research and narrowed down to two—anthyllis and solidago.
Through the research at the Open-Sky Laboratory located in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region, studies have found that solidago extract is able to inhibit the negative effects of a senescent cell—a cell that no longer divides. Solidago extracts are also able to improve skin density, which in turn makes the skin appear firmer. This amazing extract can be found in the SUBLIMAGE L’Essence Fondamentale, a serum that works to reactivate skin metabolism and redensify skin.
