Givenchy Beauty Launches Le Soin Noir Creme Legere

It is the most legendary skincare line by Givenchy: a black formula with an Haute Couture sensory feel, and a treasure trove of active ingredients, ‘Le Soin Noir Creme Legere’

Since its launch in 2008, Le Soin Noir has constantly reinvented itself and continues to astonish us. First, it amazes us thanks to its unique colour inspired by Vital Black Algae Sap, an essential concentrate sourced from an alga with an exceptional power to survive and regenerate itself. From innovation to innovation, Le Soin Noir 3rd Generation was created in 2018. The formula is now enriched with an alga extract sourced at the gametophyte stage, an early phase in the alga’s cellular development which is also when it releases the greatest amount of vital energy.

With this new formula, Le Soin Noir offers your skin complete regeneration: vital Black Algae Sap stimulates the renewal of the epidermis and regenerates the dermal matrix.

Skin is firmer, plumper and redensified. Meanwhile, the algae extract at the gametophyte stage helps to protect the skin from free radicals from the very first application and offers a long-lasting effect. It helps to preserve the skin’s youthfulness.

Today, Givenchy’s Le Soin Noir 3rd Generation is available in a new, unique texture: a Crème Légère that combines prodigious efficacy with miraculous sensoriality for skincare that is adapted to suit combination to oily skin, as well as hot and humid climates. The star ingredient of Le Soin Noir since its creation, Vital Black Algae Sap has multiple regenerating and revitalising effects on skin. In 2018, the formula was enriched with a complementary algae extract sourced using an innovative extraction process.

Givenchy Laboratories have cracked the code of algae’s life cycle and identified the gametophyte stage as the exact moment when they release the greatest amount of essential energy. This is also when the alga’s ability to survive is at its peak and its capacity to renew itself strongly increases. But the gametophyte stage is a very brief phase in the alga’s development and impossible to capture in its natural environment.

After years of research, innovative technology now makes it possible to source algae at the gametophyte stage by cultivating them in controlled ponds with an ideal stability. The algae are frozen so that they stay intact: time stops at the most precious moment.

Infused with the alga’s extraordinary nourishing properties at the gametophyte stage, the skin benefits from instant and lasting protection against free radicals: the visible effects of oxidation are immediately reduced, meaning the epidermis is revitalised.

All the skin’s life forces appear preserved.
