Valmont, the leading Swiss cellular cosmetics brand renowned for its commitment to excellence, is thrilled to introduce the latest iteration of the Essence of Bees collection, set to launch on September 12th. This premium skincare collection, part of Valmont’s esteemed l’Elixir des Glaciers range, pays homage to the majestic honeybees and their invaluable contributions to our planet. It offers exceptional nourishment and restoration through extraordinary ingredients meticulously sourced from the hive, while also championing the cause of bee protection and biodiversity preservation.
In a world where bees face multiple threats, including pesticides, industrialized agriculture, and climate change, Switzerland stands as a sanctuary for these remarkable creatures. Recognizing the crucial need for their conservation, l’Elixir des Glaciers introduced Essence of Bees in 2017. This skincare collection is a tribute to the nobility of bees, blending the worlds of science, craftsmanship, and environmental consciousness—a quintessentially Swiss homage.
Since the launch of Essence of Bees, Valmont has collaborated with suppliers and supported the preservation of beehives. CEO Sophie Vann Guillon’s partnership with Stéphanie Vuadens, a Geneva-based beekeeper and head of the Arche des Abeilles Foundation, has been instrumental in providing sustainable protection for Switzerland’s honeybees. The treasures harvested from these hives have been incorporated into the original Essence of Bees collection.
At the heart of this luxurious collection lies a masterful formulation that unites the essence of hive ingredients in an exclusive complex, featuring unrivaled galenics. Valmont’s team has harnessed the power of honey, propolis, and royal jelly through a patented, Ecocert-certified lipophilic extraction process. This creates a nutritive and restorative treatment of unparalleled efficacy, designed to revitalize even the driest skin. The extraction process generates zero pollution, emphasizing Valmont’s commitment to safeguarding the environment, crucial for the honeybee’s longevity.
In 2023, Essence of Bees evolved into an exceptional anti-aging daily regimen for dry skin, offering a more modern and generous spirit. Within the range, three majestic treatments cater to dry skin, enhancing beauty and well-being.
Huile Majestueuse, $550.00, a nourishing face oil with 97% natural ingredients, transforms the skin’s texture and radiance. It now comes in a more generous 30-ml format for everyday use.
Crème de Masque Majestueuse, $550.00, a unique beauty balm, offers a sensory experience, nourishing the skin with exquisite hive ingredients. It can be used as a daily cream or an occasional mask, leaving the skin soft, smooth, and regenerated.
Sérum Majestueux Vos Yeux, $460.00, is a powerful lifting eye serum that combats sagging eyelids and rejuvenates the eye area. It now features an extraordinary new satin texture and a redesigned bottle.
Valmont’s Essence of Bees collection continues to exemplify the brand’s dedication to excellence, sustainability, and the protection of these essential pollinators. It is a testament to the harmonious coexistence of science, nature, and luxury, resulting in transformative skincare that not only enhances beauty but also supports a crucial ecological cause.
