Chlorella Vulgaris: a marine treasure in cosmetics

Remember its name: Chlorella Vulgaris. This thousand-year-old seaweed is a real marine treasure that has extraordinary regeneration capacities.

Appearing 2.5 billion years ago, this microscopic freshwater green algae has survived until our era thanks to its ultra-resistant membrane capable of protecting it from viruses and external aggressions. Endowed with exceptional regeneration capacities, it gives birth to 4 new cells every day. It is now used in cosmetics since it is the star of the Merveillance Lift range from Nuxe.

A “green” extraction made in France

Chlorella micro-algae are cultivated in Brittany in bioreactors which optimize their cultivation conditions and guarantee their traceability and constant quality. They are then placed in an extractor traversed by a flow of supercritical Co2, which takes care of the molecules present in the membrane of the micro-algae, which are otherwise difficult to reach. The result is a pure, stable micro-algae oil extract, concentrated in essential fatty acids and natural antioxidants. This innovative extraction method also has the advantage of being eco-responsible: the Co2 is recycled and reused almost infinitely and the micro-algae residues are composted.

Super Potent Infused Treatments

Nuxe uses the powers of micro-algae oil to strengthen the dermo-epidermal junction, the key youthful area of ​​the skin which ensures the connection between dermis and epidermis. In addition to allowing optimal exchanges (nutrients, oxygen, etc.) between these 2 layers, the wavy shape of the dermo-epidermal junction guarantees visibly young and firm skin.

Each of the 5 treatments (a serum, an eye contour treatment, 2 day creams and 1 night cream) that make up this new anti-aging beauty routine have been infused with oil, a single drop of which concentrates the strength of four billion microalgae.

Its innovative textures (powdery cream, velvet cream, serum-in-oil, etc.) and its sensual fragrance, composed of a subtle bouquet of freesia and magnolia on a powdery base of white musks, make Merveillance Lift one of the long awaited this year. The formulations are vegan, silicone-free and composed of at least 96% ingredients of natural origin.

The packaging, meanwhile, is of course eco-designed and recyclable, so as to minimize its impact on the environment.

A beauty routine in 5 steps

1. Preparing the skin with self-massage

The smoothing movements must be carried out on perfectly clean skin. In contact with the fingers, the skin will heat up, blood circulation will accelerate and the pores will dilate. These modifications will allow better absorption of the products.

2. Firming activating serum

This anti-aging serum is a concentrate of strength with a 100% active texture. 3 drops are enough for instantly smooth, supple and toned skin.


3. Eye lifting cream

Thanks to its “blur” effect texture of natural origin, this eye care instantly reduces wrinkles, puffiness and signs of fatigue for a younger look from the first application. The eye contour is lifted, the eyelids are lifted.


4. Day cream applied using a massage tool

Thanks to its innovative filling texture, the powdered cream (for normal to combination skin) firms the skin and corrects wrinkles. Ideal for normal to combination skin, it offers them a natural blurring effect for a flawless finish.


5. Night cream during the evening routine

A true concentrate of anti-aging efficacy, this night cream reveals rested and smoothed skin as if you had slept 2 hours longer. Upon awakening, it is recharged with energy.
