Any chemistry students in the house? 🙂 I did fairly well at chemistry in school but its been so long now that when confronted with models like this one, my eyes glaze over and I get a brain fart. Wha…?
This ladies (and gents) is the LR 2412 molecule created and patented by Lancome. According to what I read over at Beaut.ie its called LR2412 because it was the Two Thousand Four Hundred and Twelfth attempt at getting it to do what the scientists wanted it to do, which was to get it to penetrate down through the layers of skin to the deepest level – the dermis so it can start its repair work. Entering Biology territory here. Eyes glazing over yet?
I can just imagine the scientists sitting in the lab, in their new white lab coats, excitedly starting Test #1, then Test #2 and then Test #234. Then, looking decidedly rumpled by now in their chemical stained lab coats – Test #2410, #2411 and finally, when Test #2412 delivered the result they were looking for, the whoops of joy in the lab. Now they could go home and have a shower.
Any wonder then, that this took 12 years of research? Tell me. I watch too much TV don’t I? 😛
The result of all this research brings us Lancome’s new skincare serum, Visionnaire Skin Corrector Serum. The serum that was, in the UK delivered to the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton and her sister Pippa ahead of everyone else. A serum with a waiting list. The French have most certainly wasted no time building relations with the English Royal family (and sister), I see 😉
