10 years may seem like a long time for some people, but when it comes to skincare, a decade is what it takes to perfect it and IDC has done just that. In 2008, IDC was launched in Quebec and France and rapidly grew in popularity in Europe but not so much here which is why I wanted to dedicate a post to this amazing company. So here is a little bit of history about them before I begin my rave review about their Collection Profil Corps.
In 2004 Dr. Eric Dupont (from our very own province) and a team of dermatologists, plastic surgeons and researchers isolate the 16 causes of aging and through these findings, REGEN (16) was patented in 2014. This powerful technology offers doses of unmatched active ingredients in a single formula to simultaneously target the 16 causes of aging skin. Dr. Dupont himself says that they use the latest research in polytherapy and skin aging to formulate multi-beneficial products based on real and proven results in order to offer consumers the highest quality products. The five main sources of REGEN (16) are meticulously combined from botanical, marine, vitamin, biotechnology and peptide ingredients which in turn inhibits oxidation, pigmentation, keratinization, glycation, DNA damage, enzymes of the matrix, inflammation and permeability of the capillaries and then stimulates hydration, barrier function, cell anchor, energy, oxygenation, synthesis of the matrix, immunity, and cohesion of the dermis-epidermis. I mean, I may not understand every part of the explanation and may have to google a term or two, but what I do know is that to works and I am hooked. What I appreciated about the products gifted to me was that they were for the body this time and not uniquely for my face. It's nice to give my body a little attention since the weather is finally warmer which means my clothing is getting shorter and smaller.
The first areas that the IDC Collection Profil Corps targets is the neck, décolleté and bust. Most women tend to forget about these places until it's too late but beware. Their lack of sebaceous glands and their constant sun exposure during Montreal's lovely summer days or on tropical vacations, suffer the effects of time more rapidly and are more often than not the first places to betray our age. So, this cream firms, smooths, lifts, plumps and evens out those areas and is for women who are looking for a complete solution from an efficient and concentrated product that is perfect for sagging skin. Hello! That is all women, including this one right here and I can definitely attest that it is working.
The next, dare I say, miracle product is one for cellulite. Their anti-cellulite, anti-age smoothing and sculpting gel made with caffeine complex, extract from the aquatic plant the Golden Lotus and lipolytic phytoextract, firms and tones thighs, hips, butt, stomach and arms!!!! I have been using it for three weeks now because I fall into the category of women who have cellulite, whether it be fibrous, aqueous or adipose, and this cream attacks against the signs of aging with their fabulous REGEN (16) patent with anti-cellulite complex. The cooling sensation it gives off after applying is lovely and 100% of women who have been using it confirm that their skin affected by cellulite is firmer, smoother and softer. Listen, all these women can't be wrong now can they!
Their last cream in the Collection Profil Corps is the anti-age firming body cream for those women (#me) looking for a product that nourishes and firms. I can attest that this product also hydrates and tones while leaving my skin soft and replenished after every use. The key to this happening is the ultra pure sandalwood extract, hyaluronic acid and plant extract form the Dragonnier de Socotra tree. This cream really is the perfect cure for firmer and younger looking skin.
Since your skin is the largest and most visible organ of the human body, give it some love by stopping the signs of aging, but also by protecting it from the outside world and all the physical and environmental stress, but mostly, from the signs of aging, lol!
