10 years of research and 7 patents later bring us Lancome Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate – a serum that claims to unlock the gene profile that controls aging so skin looks younger from a genetic level. Really fascinating stuff, I do not deny.
During the recent launch of Génefique Youth Activating Concentrate here in Malaysia, Lancome had a little talk on genes and aging by Ass. Prof Dr. Maude Phipps of Monash University Department of Human Genetics and Molecular Medicine. She did a good job giving us a brief overview of the human genome and how genes affect and control every fibre of our being including aging. If I was just a little more inclined towards science and math, I would have signed up for genetic research a long while back. Still, I enjoyed her talk tremendously being the closet geek… and this time there are no exams 🙂
And I enjoyed extracting the DNA from a strawberry too! Donning white lab coats and sitting before science lab instruments I last saw while at school, I felt the perfect mad scientist 😀
Unlike my experiments at school, this experiment was a huge success! But back to the Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate.
