To combat the skin imperfections that we have to deal with on a daily basis, Naolys has developed an unusual active ingredient concept: the combination of two cell strains from the same species – vines – for enhanced action due to the complementary nature of the molecules synthesized by these cells. Two strains of red grape vines, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, are the varieties that are the richest in polyphenols (tannins and anthocyanins). These multifunctional molecules are synthesized by vines, and are present in very large quantities in Naolys’ plant cells.
Because the skin suffers from various types of damage – such as broken skin or inflammation – that can profoundly change its appearance (e.g. acne, irritation, shaving cuts, ingrown hairs, dryness, etc.), it is necessary to strengthen its internal repair and protection mechanisms. For stronger, more uniform skin.
Helps to reconstruct skin tissue.
Encourages a radiant, uniform complexion.
Restores moisture balance, maintains water in the epidermal layers.
Strengthens oxygen supply, encourages better metabolism. Detoxifying.
Calming, reduces inflammatory processes. Helps to reduce redness.
PROTECTS (ANTIOXIDANT AND REGULATES SKIN FLORA)
Reduces the formation of free radicals, strengthens internal antioxidant protection. Strengthens anti-microbial defences. Re-establishes the skin’s natural level of acidity.

Whatever our skin type, we are susceptible to everyday skin problems such as seasonal dryness, blackheads and inflammation for seborrheic skin, redness for sensitive skin, small cuts during shaving for men, scars etc.
When these imperfections are not due to problems of a medical nature, they are due to multiple imbalances that cause the skin’s surface structure to deteriorate: it becomes swollen, red or irregular in certain places, and basically loses its uniformity. These imperfections may come from a lack of oxygenation, dehydration, overproduction of sebum due to bacterial infection, or some form of external threat.
Tiredness and age cause several basic cell mechanisms to slow down, such as cell respiration or micro-circulation, and therefore healing, and can also cause an intensification of inflammatory phenomena. Although these imbalances cause changes that are visible at the skin’s surface, their repair can involve numerous elements and mechanisms located in the first two layers of the skin: the epidermis and the dermis.
To obtain a blemish-free skin surface, Healthy Perfection (Vitis flower)2 acts in two stages: by specifically treating damage, and by strengthening the skin’s natural defences.
Healthy Perfection (Vitis flower)2 first helps to complete the healing of skin damage, from the reduction of inflammation to tissue reconstruction: damage causes inflammation and redness that Healthy Perfection (Vitis flower)2 will endeavour to regulate, while also helping cells to multiply and to synthesize more tissue thanks to a supply of oxygen and nutrients, and a better elimination of toxins. The cells are then able to defend themselves more efficiently.
Healthy Perfection (Vitis flower)2 enables the skin to repair damage by itself more quickly.
To ensure better oxygenation of the cells manufacturing cell tissue, which must also defend themselves against damage due to general oxidation, it directly reduces the production of free radicals and increases the synthesis of enzymes that block their formation. During their repair activity, the cells have to deal with bacterial and microbial attacks, since microbes and bacteria enter damaged skin more easily. Healthy Perfection (Vitis flower)2 increases the production of anti-microbial peptides in the epidermis.
Finally, since the skin barrier, or hydrolipidic film, localised at the skin’s surface is the the body’s vital physical barrier against pathogenic agents, Healthy Perfection (Vitis flower)2 helps to strengthen it by maintaining water in the epidermis for longer, while at the same time re-establishing its natural level of acidity.
Healthy Perfection (Vitis flower)2 enables the skin to defend itself more effectively against environmental threats.
Thanks to its broad spectrum of anti-inflammatory, energizing and protective properties, Healthy Perfection (Vitis flower)2 rebalances the skin’s complexion, making it smoother and more radiant.
