Cosmetologist Natalya Egorenkova spoke about effective Swiss creams from brands with a hundred-year history and explained why you need to look for acids in nighttime face products.
Cream Kiwicha Night Cream, Klapp
The German brand was founded by naturopathic physician Gerhard Klapp in 1980. One of the brand's innovations is the ASA Peel with five fruit acids in its composition, developed in the mid-80s and patented by the Klapp group of companies. Dr. Klapp was one of the first to use vitamins A and C in cosmetics.
The basis of this cream is caudate amaranth oil, which grows in South America and was actively used by the Incas (hence the name of the series of products - "Kiwicha"). The oil contains vitamins A, D, B1, B2, which penetrate deep into the epidermis due to squalene (a conductor component), moisturize and nourish the skin. The cream is very light, does not feel after application. It contains plant components (except for amaranth oil, there are peanut oils, jojoba, rosemary leaf extract, aloe vera), no gluten, mineral and silicone oils, synthetic fragrances and dyes.

Night cream "Pink infusion", Académie Scientifique de Beauté
The oldest European brand was created by Dr. Alexander Lamotte in 1980. An important fact: the brand has been creating collagen creams since 1936, on average, each Académie Scientifique de Beauté product contains 30 natural ingredients.
In the "Pink Infusion" cream, it is Provencal rose oil, cypress essential oil, mimosa wax, jojoba, shea and macadamia oils, French peach extract. The oils strengthen the skin and create a film that protects the skin from moisture loss.
Apply with massage movements.

Night renewing cream Perfect Skin Refiner, Teoxane
I advise the product to clients with pigmentation. It brightens the skin, shrinks pores and gives the face a healthy glow. The composition contains glycolic (about 10%), hyaluronic acids and the Novhyal® G component (Teoxane patent) - a precursor of hyaluronic acid, which strengthens the epidermis and dermis and accelerates metabolic processes. After the release of the cream, Teoxane conducted a test on 24 volunteers who used the product for 15 days, after which the cosmetologists and they themselves diagnosed the visible skin improvements, which I described above.

Phytocell Arganight Cream, Cholley
The cream is good for dry and very dry skin, but it is suitable if you need emergency hydration (after a vacation at sea, for example). Apply it on the face with massage movements and "driving in" with your fingers around the neck and décolleté. The IC-RAMP technology patented by the Swiss brand is based on the ability of the skin to regenerate at the intercellular level (this is how the skin heals after a cut, for example).
Cholley products stimulate the production of fibroblasts that produce the extracellular matrix: collagen and elastane. The main component of the cream is an extract of argan tree stem cells. Since this plant is an endangered species and is under the protection of UNESCO, a patented technology for extracting stem cells from small parts of argan is used. Other active ingredients that stimulate skin renewal are extracts of crocus bulb and bitter wormwood.
Price: 21400 rub.
Turn Over Stimulating Night Cream, Dermaceutic
This is an anti-aging cream that can be used from the age of 30 - it fights the first signs of aging and stimulates cell renewal. After regular use, the skin becomes soft and the face refreshed.
As a part of glycolic acid, which works as a light peeling, it reduces the adhesion of keratin cells in the stratum corneum of the epidermis and exfoliates dead particles. Avoid the eye area when applying.
