An innovative action against dynamic wrinkles that appear daily. Combination of three independent peptides, but with complementary actions, to neutralise the effect of facial dermocontractions.
BTX-Tripeptine neutralises the effect of facial dermocontractions related to the permanent mobility of the face. In this way the expression is softened. Rested skin at any age.
A powerful complex that stimulates natural skin purification to remove damaged proteins and toxins from the cells.
This intelligent complex is made of up of several plant extracts including Rosemary, Tea, Camomile, Liquorice and Centella Asiatica. It actively helps to increase the skin’s tolerance by stimulating its natural defence mechanisms. It also provides an anti-inflammatory and relieving action on the skin.
Developed by Germaine de Capuccini, Epigenol is a highly concentrated active ingredient extracted from the Calendula flower.
Capable of boosting the skins key mechanisms that preserve younger looking skin, it switches “ON” the genes “turned off” by the epigenetic factors to reactivate the younger proteins.
Globally reverses the ageing process to reduce:
Exclusive to Germaine de Capuccini, Genage-Confidant stimulates aged skin cells to function as they do in younger skin to globally treat skin concerns associated with ageing. It also increases the production of collagen and elastin allowing the skin to repair itself more effectively.
Exclusive to Germaine de Capuccini, Glyco 8-Power is our most advanced formula yet. It works by trapping active ingredients inside biomolecules that are proven to absorb into the skin x8 more effectively.* This ensures the ingredients are delivered deep into the skin to drastically increase the results.

Pure Retinol is encapsulated in micro-particles, small enough to penetrate the skin. Made from plant origin, these microparticles are biodegradable allowing them to break down slowly, releasing the retinol in a controlled way to avoid any adverse reactions.
Encapsulated to preserve its whole effectiveness at the moment of its use.
Benefits on the skin
Developed exclusively by Germaine de Capuccini, RC-Advanced works like an essential reinforcement of skin more debilitated by age so it can perform its functions of self-protection during the day and cellular regeneration during the night.
This is highly effective for maintaining the skin’s youthfulness.
Developed exclusively for Germaine de Capuccini, Skinbiome Repair is designed to increase the skin’s tolerance by rebalancing its microbiota. (essential for keeping the skin’s barrier healthy and protected)
Two types of probiotics strengthen the skins defence barrier whilst stopping the growth of bad bacteria so that over time, this skin becomes more resistant.
The regenerating power to fight static wrinkles comes from the advance in the knowledge of tissue engineering with Tissulage Tech, a complex of peptides for the global regeneration of the Extracellular Matrix. The tissue of the dermis damaged by age is replaced by “new skin” thanks to the development of a new three-dimensional framework. Tissulage Tech regenerates the Extracellular Matrix damaged by the passing of the years, lifting the framework of proteins of the dermis and generating new collagen and elastin. This is an improvement of the firmness and suppleness of the skin, and most of all a reduction of the volume and length of the wrinkles, fine and deep.
Exclusive to Germaine de Capuccini, V-Matix is an intelligent complex that rebuilds the structure of the dermis. Purified Oligosaccharides restore elastin fibres whilst active peptides reactivate collagen, elastin and proteins, essential for building a strong structure of the dermis.

Ceramides are lipids (fats) that occur naturally in skin. They hold skin together and form a protective layer to help prevent moisture loss and damage from environmental aggression. Ceramides also help to keep the skin supple. As we age, or when the skins surface layer is damaged, we lose these Ceramides which need to be replaced.
These play an important role to achieve a clear and open eye contour. They have the capacity to reflect certain colours, achieving an immediate correction effect. The “tear valley” is illuminated, the bluish/reddish colour of the bags under the eyes is neutralised, the matt and dull tone disappears and sunken eyes appear more youthful and fresh.
As this formula works like a pigment corrector, it helps to achieve a healthy tone without the need for makeup.
Corn oil is rich in linoleic acid, (an essential acid necessary for growth) antioxidants and Vitamin E. With an incredible soothing action, it helps to reduce reactions to chemical or thermal agents that irritate the skin.
Edelweiss Flower has an immense anti-oxidising power that neutralises damage caused by environmental aggressions and reduces free radicals in the cells to help prevent wrinkles, dark spots and loose skin.
It also strengthens the skins support structure by reducing the formation of MMP (dermal protein-damaging enzymes) and reactivates the fibroblasts which are essential for collagen production.
Stimulate fat removal.
The action of Forskolin helps to remove fat deposits accumulated in the adipocytes, as it stimulates lipolysis by increasing cAMP in the cells.
This action is complemented by bioflavonoids extracted from Andean Maca, which also stimulate lipolysis while limiting the storage of new fat by regulating lipogenesis.

Formed with medium sized molecules, Medium Weight Hyaluronic Acid strengthens the skin’s natural immune system by stimulating anti-bacterial peptides that preserve the correct balance of skin flora.
This refreshing ingredient has cooling, invigorating and soothing properties.
Milk Proteins have nourishing and healing properties whilst being great at locking in moisture on the skin.
Multi-Lamellar Ceramide Complex maintains the perfect humidity and condition of the skins protective barrier (hydrolipidic barrier). It forms a film that regulates transpiration of water, working like a water reservoir.
This provides comfort and hydration to dry and tight skin.
A natural source of Vitamin B3 Niacinamide is found in a variety of food, fruit and green vegetables.
Beauty should be responsible. The ‘CleanBeauty’ trend promotes the use of products that protect the environment and avoid controversial ingredients; more effective, safer and more respectful products. This is a common concern amongst consumers, formulators and raw material manufacturers for the cosmetics industry.
Oceans make up about two-thirds of our planet, yet we often forget how the ingredients we use in our sun protection products affect the marine ecosystem.
The new TIMEXPERT SUN sun protection products look after our seas and oceans:
– High percentage of biodegradable ingredients.
– Free of silicones, which are substances that accumulate in the sea, and therefore reducing them is key.
– By including natural ingredients that have an SPF boosting action we’ve been able to reduce the number of filters used in the formulas as much as possible to limit any possible environmental impact, without weakening the protection offered.
– Physical nano filters (TiO 2 and ZnO have been replaced by non nano TiO 2
– Free from oxybenzone and octyl methoxycinnamate the two filters banned by Hawaii’s precedent setting law due to their potential contribution to coral bleaching and destroying underwater life
– Water-resistant formulas to prevent the products’ ingredients from passing from the skin to the sea
This complex is made up of active plant extracts of ginger, pimpernel and cinnamon bark chosen for their natural astringent properties. This complex regulates oil production and reduces the size of dilated pores.
Extracted from the majestic African Baobab tree, Baobab Seed Oil has an unusually high content of fatty acids, omega 3, 6, 9 and vitamin A, D, F, B and twice the anti-oxidising power of argan oil.
