Elemis was founded in 1989 and is a
leading British skincare brand sold in over 1,200 spas and salons worldwide.
Founded by Linda Steiner in London, UK, Elemis
was founded to help her achieve her dream of selling luxury skincare products
that were “as near to nature as possible”. She worked with Jan Kusmirek, a
world-class formulator, and Noella Gabriel, a professional therapist and
educator, and launched Elemis in 1990. Elemis began appearing in spas and
cruise ships over the next few years.
It maintains flagship spas in
London, Miami, and Hong Kong.
What they’re known for
uses ingredients and oils from the first extraction of plant material. This
means that they get the fullest effects, since later pressings and extractions
of the same material produce a less-effective ingredient. Although later
extractions are much cheaper to source, the power is diminished and Elemis
won’t accept the material. Elemis is an innovative company that is always
looking to improve their skincare line and find new techniques that will help
their ingredients have an even more powerful effect.
The Elemis Absolutes line contains
the purest form of living energy that can possibly be transferred from a plant
Elemis has recently launched a new
line of products, Freshskin, for those in their teens and twenties. It’s
designed to nurture young skin, preventing premature aging while giving dull
skin a brighter glow.
Elemis also has a line of spa
products formulated specifically for men.
Elemis developed its anti-aging line
in collaboration with doctors and skincare specialists. The line focuses on
renewal, using collagen-boosting plant and marine ingredients.
The line offers three steps:
anti-pollution detox, active cellular delivery, and extra-cellular
Anti-pollution detox helps to clear
the skin of harmful environmental toxins and stressors, such as illness,
stress, smoking, sun damage, and pollution. These toxins can smother individual
cells, leaving them unable to breathe or process nutrients. Elemis Cellular
Recovery Skin Bliss Capsules have anti-oxidants and micro-encapsulated vitamins
that helps clean and rejuvenate the user’s cellular matrix. Freshly cleaned
cells can then reap the benefits of the step two anti-aging treatment
The active cellular delivery step
contains the greatest variety of skincare products, those that target and treat
the signs of aging. These formulas recognize that collagen and elastin are
essential elements of the user’s skin that help to keep cells plump, youthful,
and firm. Since the production of these two naturally-occurring skin boosters
lessens after age 25, it’s important to replenish them daily from another
source. Elemis formulas mimic the body’s own anti-aging functions to boost
collagen levels, hydrate, and speed up the growth of new cells. This leads to
younger-, smoother-, and clearer-looking skin. The skincare selection for this
step includes daytime and nighttime moisturizers, resurfacing, neck and eye
formulas, and exfoliators and masks.
Step three is the extra-cellular
restructuring step, that provides a finishing touch so skin has a more youthful
appearance. A product like the Pro-Collagen Quartz Lift Serum, with quartz,
rhodochrosite, and padina pavonica, strengthens the skin’s surface by using
concentrated actives and hydrophilic (water attracting) bases. The
cell-plumping and collagen-supporting actives can be used every day to help to
provide a smoother, firmer, and more youthful appearance.

Every ingredient in Elemis skincare
products has medical grade actives for real therapeutic activity. This helps
Elemis maintain its spot as one of the innovative leaders in advanced
phyto-therapy and aroma-therapeutic formulations. Ingredients are never
selected just because they feel good on the skin; they must have a positive
impact on the skin by nourishing, hydrating, protecting, or aiding with deep
penetration for other ingredients.
Elemis controls every element of new
products, from the seeds selected and type of soil to the selection of an
extraction process. When possible, every ingredient is derived from organic
extracts, Absolutes, the first extraction of pure essential oils,
naturally-occurring emulsifiers, skin-softening emollients, herbs, or
clinically-proven collagen-boosting seaweed tracts.
All formulas used by Elemis are free
from parabens, SLS, SLES, EDA, mineral oils, artificial colors, and silicones.
Elemis offers a blend of natural
ingredients and cutting-edge technology. The company continues to invest
heavily in research, development, and clinical trials, always striving to find
newer and more effective techniques, such as its Tri-Enzyme technology for
Elemis’ state-of-the-art resurfacing range of products. One of Elemis
skincare’s most recent discoveries is a seaweed farmed off the coast of Malta.
It has shown powerful collagen-boosting effects.
Elemis employs powerful, cutting-edge
computer technology. Using lifestyle programming and clinical imaging and
facial mapping, therapists can learn more about individual skin types.
