Lavelier Marine Deep Moisturizer Reviews

We looked at numerous brands of wrinkle creams during our process of compiling a list of the top brands on the market, but one treatment stood out from all the others, and that’s Solvaderm’s Stemuderm.

Lavelier Marine Deep Moisturizer: Ingredients

The main benefits of using these products include: the promise of rejuvenation, protection, moisturization, and the brightening of tired skin. These products are best used by someone whose skin needs the boost that collagen provides. Even normal everyday exposure to the sun depletes collagen levels in the skin. This means that things we take for granted in our sun-worshipping youth such as skin elasticity and smooth, firm skin, will inevitably decrease as we get older. Smog, stress, diets, and even lack of sleep can affect our skin. Specific ingredients in skin products such as Collagen, Coralina, Sunflower Oil, and different vitamins help with the skin’s elasticity and firmness. By including Soluble Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid in the Collagen Firming Complex, this product can offer tired skin a refreshing and much-needed energy drink. My thirsty skin immediately said, “Yes please!” I was eager to try it along with the accompanying masque.

The Coralline Collagen Boosting Masque includes such skin boosters as Coralline, Collagen and Sunflower Oil. With its antioxidant properties and Vitamins E, A, and C, and Sunflower Oil are all known to boost firmness, while decreasing redness. Coralline is type of algae, an extract of the calcified seaweed called Coralina. It helps skin cells to accept moisture and ‘plumps them up.’ According to an article in Consumer Health Digest, Sunflower Oil has been shown to be effective in ‘alleviating a number of skin conditions including dryness, acne, sun damage and premature aging’ (ConsumerHealthDigest.com; 5 Amazing Benefits of Sunflower Oil for Healthy Skin). These are some of the ingredients in these products from Lavelier make up a recipe for invigorated, healthy, beautiful skin.

Vitamin A is an industry favorite. It does so much for the skin, from boosting cell turnover to fading blemishes and dark spots to increasing collagen and elastin production.

What’s in the Lavelier Marine Deep Moisturizer?

Several key ingredients in the Marine Deep Moisturizer contribute to how incredibly effective it is. Let’s take a closer look at a few of them:

Coral Seaweed

Seaweed underwater

Well, many don’t realize just how special seaweed is as a plant. It can chemically protect itself from environmental damage, whether this may be UV rays, pollution, or anything else. This is why seaweed is such an abundant, and therefore easily sustainable, plant.

When applied to the skin, it offers those same protective qualities. However, red coral seaweed in particular takes things a little further…

It’s extremely rich in calcium, a mineral that encourages your skin to increase cell production and turnover. Amping up your skin’s calcium levels will allow your skin to shed its old, dull, and rough skin cells at a faster rate, leaving you with a fresh and glowy complexion.

Seaweed is also wonderfully hydrating and is packed with amino acids that improve skin plumpness and elasticity, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles at the same time. What more could you ask for?

Lavelier Marine Deep Moisturizer: Retinyl Palmitate

Vitamin A is an industry favorite. It does so much for the skin, from boosting cell turnover to fading blemishes and dark spots to increasing collagen and elastin production.

This is an anti-aging ingredient that everybody should be using, and you would struggle to find a dermatologist that would disagree with this.

However, what makes things a little tricky is that vitamin A is available in several different forms. Some can only be obtained via a prescription – these are most commonly used as an acne treatment. As we said, vitamin A is surprisingly versatile!

When it comes to over-the-counter forms of vitamin A, the two most popular options are retinol and retinyl palmitate. Retinol is stronger and faster-acting, but it’s also infamous for the side effects it produces. Expect dryness, redness, sensitivities, and breakouts while your skin adjusts to the ingredient. For some, these side effects don’t dissipate.

This is why we at Lavelier decided to go with retinyl palmitate. It may not produce instant results (we have other ingredients for that!), but, when used consistently over time, it’s just as effective as retinol. Even better, side effects with retinyl palmitate are rare. Again, our preference for gentle ingredients helps to ensure that the Marine Deep Moisturizer is suitable for all skin types.

Lavelier Marine Deep Moisturizer: Green Tea Leaf Extract

Green tea

The Marine Deep Moisturizer contains a few different botanical ingredients, but green tea leaf extract is one of our favorites.

Because numerous studies are confirming the anti-aging benefits that this ingredient can have. Not only does it improve skin elasticity, but it also helps to reverse the effects of sun damage . This is all down to its antioxidant compounds. The ingredient also has powerful anti-inflammatory properties, making it a must-have for treating so many common skin conditions, from acne to psoriasis.

We recommend adding green tea extract to as many parts of your skincare routine as possible. This is why, in addition to the Marine Deep Moisturizer, you’ll also find the ingredient in our Moisture Allure Cream and our Nano Gold Serum .

Cetearyl Olivate

Now onto an ingredient that you may not have heard of before – Cetearyl olivate. Don’t worry, it’s not anything frightening! Instead, this ingredient consists of a blend of fatty acids that have been derived from olive oil, along with Cetearyl alcohol, which is one of the “good” alcohols in skincare.

What does it do for your skin?

It’s incredibly conditioning. It’ll leave your skin feeling ultra-soft and silky. Even better, it encourages faster absorption of skincare products, which helps to make our Marine Deep Moisturizer even more effective. After all, the faster a formula sinks into your skin, the less of it will evaporate into the air.

Aloe Vera Leaf Extract

Aloe vera

Referred to by the ancients as the “plant of immortality”, aloe vera is another skincare multi-tasker. It replenishes moisture, soothes inflammation (which is why it’s such a popular sunburn ingredient), and delivers a hefty dose of antioxidants, enzymes, and vitamins to the skin.

It’s a great ingredient for all skin types, which is why we had to include it in our Marine Deep Moisturizer. You’ll also find it in the Lavelier Divine Day Defense SPF 30 , the Lavelier Nano Gold Serum , and the Lavelier Hand Sanitizer .

Betaine

Time for another mystery ingredient – betaine. You’ll notice that this ingredient features near the top of the Marine Deep Moisturizer’s ingredient list, meaning that it’s quite a prominent part of the cream.

But what exactly is it?

Betaine is a modified amino acid. It stimulates various chemical functions within the skin, enabling it to do everything from moisturizing to reducing inflammation.

However, what we love about this ingredient are its filler-like effects. It fills in any creases and dips in the skin – this gives the skin a smoother and wrinkle-free appearance. It also makes the face look much brighter since there are no more creases to cast shadows over the complexion.

Lavelier Skin Care features seven unique skin care collections: Coral Luminous, Coralline, Hydrotherm, Marine, Mineral Allure, Seagrass, and Seascape.

Understanding Silicones

If you’ve ever used a skincare, makeup or beauty product that’s made your skin look and feel smoother tempoarily – it’s likely contained Silicone. They are a popular class of ingredients found in cosmetics due to their smooth, soft, easy-to-spread and smooth properties that help creates an artificial layer/barrier on top of skin or hair (commonly found in conditioners).

For the same reasons they are popularly used, they are also commonly avoided. Anecdotally, many individuals have reported that Silicones cause/excerbate breakouts, irritation, cause a feeling of skin being unable to breathe, cause clumping of cosmetic products and find it difficult to wash off. As a result, those who find them problematic are avoiding them and increasingly, cosmetic companies are avoiding them as well.

If you have had bad experiences with Silicones in the past, or suspect they are problematic then look out for the tick on the Silicone-free label.

Disclaimer

The Silicone-free label only includes the most common Silicone ingredients that have indentified been reported by individuals that could potentially cause issues.

These include: Amodimethicone, Behenoxy Dimethicone, Bis-Aminopropyl Dimethicone, Cetearyl Methicone, Cetyl Dimethicone, Cyclomethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Dimethicone Copolyol, Dimethiconol, Methicone, Phenyl Trimethicone, Phenyl Trimethicone, Stearoxy Dimethicone, Stearyl Dimethicone, Trimethylsilylamodimethicone.

Note, that this does not include all ingredients part of the Silicone class of ingredients.

Understanding the Identified Contact Allergens

The EU’s Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS) has identified and established 26 cosmetic ingredients that are likely contact allergens (potential to cause skin allergies) as demonstrated in clinical or epidemiological studies. The EU’s SCCS have recommend cosmetic companies to disclose them on the labels if used and in cases where the concentration exceeds 0.001% in leave-on products and 0.01% in rinse-off products, then they must be labelled.

Look out for the tick on the EU-Allergen free label to know your cosmetic is free from any of the 26 identified cosmetic ingredients.

For more information regarding the EU’s Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety, please visit their official website.

Disclaimer

The EU Allergen Free label is for the 26 ingredients identified by the EU SCCS and products will be only flagged if a suspected ingredient is on it’s ingredient list. It is possible for cosmetics to contain one of the suspect ingredients without it appearing on the ingredient list due to it not reaching the concentration threshold to disclose it and cosmetic manufacturers choice to not disclose it.

Fungal Acne (Malassezia) Safe

lavelier Marine Deep Moisturizer contains a SkinCarisma flagged potentially Fungal-Acne feeding Ingredient

Understanding Fungal Acne (Pityrosporum Folliculitis/Malassezia Folliculitis)

Pityrosporum Folliculitis/Malassezia folliculitis or simply known as Fungal Acne is a persistent acne-like condition that commonly responds poorly to traditional acne-treating methods. Unlike most cases of Acne where bacteria is the culprit, Fungi is the culprit of Fungal Acne (Hence the name!). There are certain classes & groups of ingredients that have been shown to promote and feed the growth of the Fungal Acne, Fungi such as fatty acids, oils, esters, polysorbates and fermented ingredients.

For more information regarding Fungal Acne, please visit Simple Skincare Science (f.c) – #3 of our Recommend Skincare Resources for an amazing comprehensive guide!

Please Read: How to use the Fungal Acne (Malassezia) Label

At SkinCarisma, we’ve done our best to identify as many ingredients as possible but note the fungal-free label may not be 100% accurate due to the complexconditions and combination of ingredients that malezzeria can thrive on.

Additionally, products that may contain ingredients that have shown to feed Malassezia may not neccessarily exacerbate the condition due to concentration of ingredient used in the product, this information is simply not available on the products.

As a result, please note this is only an experimental label that can be best used to possible identify problematic products you have used in the past. It is in no way a perfect identifier nor a predictor in whether or not it will exacerbate or cause fungal acne. It will continue to be worked on as more information and research comes to light.

If you find any ingredients you believe should be included, please email us at [email protected]

Disclaimer

Due to the lack of substantial research into this area it is very likely there are other ingredients and class/groups of ingredients that could feed Fungal Acne which have not been indentified.

The Fungal-Safe label does not constitute as medical advice. For your specific case, always consult your medical professiona such as dermatologist, physician, pharmacist, or health care provider – please read our medical disclaimer for more information.

I was shown this place at the Tacoma Mall by a friend. Every salesperson spoke with an accent and claimed they were from California. It was the creepiest experience I have ever had. We had asked how long they had been at the mall. One said “a very long time.” One told us 3 years and the other 10 years. They are not listed in the mall directory under the name Lavelier.
They wanted a lot of money. The product was just weird. NASA red, blue, and green lights… I just wanted to run from these people…
