La Prairie has recently expanded the Advanced Marine Biology Collection,an eco-conscious skincare collection featuring the protective powers of the sea via aquaculture technology. The collection is perfect for the eco-conscious beauty lover who doesn't want to sacrifice luxury.
First introduced in 2007, La Prairie has expanded theAdvanced Marine Biology Collection, which features ingredients inspired by the sea, but with the technological aid of aquaculture so that sea life remains undisturbed.
Céline Cousteau, Founder of CauseCentric Productions,granddaughter of the legendary Jacques Cousteau and Special Ambassador for the Advanced Marine Biology Collection, says, "Life is about choices – whether it’s using a recycling bin, eating sustainable seafood or purchasing products that make a conscious effort to protect our environment. I am proud to be affiliated with the Advanced Marine Biology Collection, as it gives consumers the skincare option of a versatile collection of multi-tasking, high-performance products with healthy ingredients that are not depleting our environment."
As something of a "green" beauty lover myself, I was privileged to try the collection, which is lightly fragranced and colored in aqua hues. The luxury products never left my skin feeling weighed down or greasy, yet still managed to feel like they were sinking in and working.
Products in the expanded range are suitable for both active men and women who enjoy spending time in the outdoors, but don't want to look like it. La Prairie President Lynne Florio explains, "The expanded Advanced Marine Biology Collection not only places an emphasis on preventative skincare but also on the importance of marine preservation. We are extremely proud of the collection and all it stands for."
