See A Smooth Difference With (And Around) Your Own Eyes

What's the first word that comes to mind when you hear "Chanel"? Chances are it's fashion, and not science. But the wizards working in Chanel's skincare division are more about chemistry than couture.

Nowhere is this more apparent than in the new Ultra Correction Line Repair Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream. This formula relies on science with almost ancient roots to repair and prevent wrinkles around the eye.

The star ingredient is a super-pure extract from bay cedar, a botanical that's been used for decades, if not centuries, by Indonesians for more beautiful skin. Chanel scientists discovered that this powerful plant essence naturally stimulates an enzyme called fructosamine-3-kinase, or FN3K, which depletes with age, leading sugar to bind to collagen and thus cause creases in the skin. By reinvigorating FN3K, bay cedar puts the breaks on glycation.

This anti-aging effect is enhanced by other ingredients in Ultra Correction Line Repair Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream, including hyaluronic acid, peptides, pea and bitter orange. The eye area looks and feels more hydrated, and darkness is diminished, too.

Oil-free and fragrance-free, it proves Chanel's scientific prowess in a matter of weeks.
