New Excellence quartet from Placecol

The professionals at Placecol are as invested in their customers’ satisfaction as they are in creating award-winning products that improve the skin’s condition.

In June the brand launched the Placecol Excellence skin care range, to treat clients’ most pressing skin concerns. The four products in the range contain Sunflower Oil, an anti-oxidant rich in Vitamin E to calm reactive skin and control the signs of premature ageing. Rice peptides are used to provide a nutritional supplement to the skin, actively improving barrier function.

‘We’ve labelled the new products biological solutions because they penetrate the skin at a cellular level to deliver optimal results from the inside out,’ says Placecol Group CEO, Esna Colyn.

Addressing unique skin concerns

The Placecol Excellence range has been scientifically developed following an in-depth investigation into the different cellular functions associated with unique skin concerns. The products are packed with the latest technology in active ingredients to gently erase fine lines and reduce wrinkles, combat hyper-pigmentation or sun damage, refine skin’s texture, or support skin recovery.

Placecol Excellence Gravity Lift Solution contains a powerful blend of eight age-defying active ingredients to give the face a visible lift, while strengthening sagging skin to improve its resistance to gravity. The solution also includes a unique blend of plant extracts and irritant-free Retinol to stimulate and reinforce the skin’s restructuring processes. During Placecol’s 12 week clinical trials of the Gravity Lift Solution, wrinkles were reduced by nine percent and skin radiance improved by 11 percent.

Brighten and purify skin

The nine active ingredients in Placecol Excellence Brighten Solution combat hyper-pigmentation and sun damage, as well as brighten the skin. Salicylic Acid reduces redness and calms the skin. Retinol rectifies and repairs, dramatically improving blemishes. The oil soluble Vitamin C, Arbutin and Mulberry extract promote superior skin brightening effects.

The new Pure Solution in the Excellence range is a highly concentrated product with a specially formulated combination of 11 active ingredients to regulate sebum production, tighten pores, reduce break-outs and improve the skin’s texture. Salicylic Acid, Alpine Willow herb and other plant actives reduce shine, redness and detoxify the cells.

The 11 actives in Placecol Excellence Scar Solution work in perfect harmony to calm irritated skin and support the skin’s ability to repair using a powerful blend of Panthenol (Vitamin B5), Vitamin E and Squalene. This solution is also formulated with Liquorice extract and Retinol for healthier looking skin.
