For the first time ever, fresh has introduced a naturally derived ingredient blend with a scientifically proven retinol-like performance: BT Matrix. Debuting in new Black Tea Advanced Age Renewal Cream, this exclusive duo of leaf extracts visibly reduces wrinkles while helping to improve firmness. And yet this anti- ageing moisturiser is gentle enough to be used twice a day—without the known discomfort typical of many retinol products.
The natural ageing process causes skin's structure to weaken. 70-75% of the skin (excluding its water content) is made up of collagen. After the age of 25, collagen production can start to decrease by about 1% each year. This deceleration weakens skin’s structure, resulting in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, rough texture, and dullness. Developed at the fresh Research Lab, Black Tea Advanced Age Renewal Cream addresses multiple signs of ageing—and the results are remarkable. After 8 weeks, consumers saw 7x smoother wrinkles, 5x visibly firmer skin, and 4x more radiance.1 Best of all, this lightweight velvety cream is dermatologist-tested and proven effective on all skin types, including sensitive skin.
The secret to the cream’s anti-ageing power is BT Matrix, a retinol-like* blend of black tea and rambutan leaf extracts that work synergistically to support lost skin structure due to a natural decline in collagen. How did fresh prove it has retinol-like strength? fresh scientists tested BT Matrix using the Perfex vivo model and monitored for 6 days. They then analysed key biomarkers involved in smoothing wrinkles and firming—the known benefits of retinol—as well as skin discomfort. BT Matrix is scientifically proven to be highly effective in all key biomarkers. BT Matrix is also proven via an instrumental test to visibly reduce the level of wrinkles.
Black Tea Advanced Age Renewal Cream is packed with other advanced ingredients, including ceramide NP to strengthen the skin barrier, squalane to prevent moisture loss, and pink porcelain lily to boost radiance and improve skin texture.
Use daily morning and night to visibly transform your skin with BT Matrix, nature’s answer to anti-ageing.
Black Tea Advanced Age Renewal Cream 50mL $150 AUD, is available in store at Sephora, and online at Sephora.com.au.
