Sisley is a French brand and has a wide range of products ranging from bath and body to colored cosmetics. It is famously known for its use of phytocosmetology i.e. the use of natural extracts from plants and other essential oils in the products it delivers. Eminent beauty experts, dermatologists and makeup technicians have used and recommended Sisley skin care products.
I am totally obsessed with Sisley brand and new launch Black Rose skin infusion cream. Would like to share a bit more information about the history of the brand. By highlighting in my article an interview with Susannah Taylor where she talks to Christine D’ornano about how to run a family business.
ST: Can you give me a brief history of the beginnings of Sisley?
CD’O: Sisley was created by my father – his family had a history of working in cosmetics. [Her grandfather was on the board of Coty before starting up Lancome, and her father founded the scent company Jean D’Albret and cosmetics house Orlane]. They sold the brand and he wanted to create a new business. He felt that the future of cosmetics was in plants because you could isolate active ingredients. He knew that if he created a new brand he wanted to make it high end. He also wanted to use the best quality active ingredients he could find, and to give as much time as possible to scientists so that they could create the best quality products they could.
ST: How do you maintain the quality of the products?
CD’O: We try to do the best at every level of creation and production – we use the best research and the best quality of active ingredients we can find, which makes an enormous difference on the potency of the product. We have actually been known to discontinue products before because we couldn’t source the same quality of ingredient. We also do very extensive tests on product that last a year before launch, and we work very hard on very complex formulas. The reason we use the word global a lot is because we tackle skincare issue from every angle. We also make sure that we are very connected with everything that’s happening around the world.
I Absolutely love this cream. It instantly hydrates and plumped my skin without leaving any residues.
How it works:
It restores the skin`s bounce Alkekengi calyx extract with its double plumping effectiveness. In the epidermis and dermis*, is combined with Padina pavonica extract, which strengthens the skin`s hydric layer, for replumped skin.
2. It promotes complexion radiance and luminosity
Black Rose aqueous extract instantly smoothes the skin texture to improve reflection of light. This action is supplemented by Hibiscus flower extract to increase the complexion radiance. Alpine Rose extract, rich in powerful antioxidants, combats the dulling of the complexion.
An exceptionally sensorial application: a silky texture that transforms into micro-droplets of water and permeates into the heart of the epidermis. Hydrated, the skin is infused with moisture, as if rejuvenated.
The combination of oily Black Rose extract, May Rose water and Shea and Camelina oils leaves the skin soft, brings instant sensation of freshness and long-lasting comfort.
The olfactory signature of Black Rose skin care – essential oils of Rose, Magnolia and Geranium – awakens the senses and provides an immediate sensation of well-being.
