The Placecol team of skin care experts, embarked on a journey 17 months ago to simplify, upgrade and improve the Placecol skin care range. The journey included visits to Switzerland and liaising with a strategic biotechnology partner to transform this 34 year old South African skin care range, like a butterfly, into a dermaceutical skin care range.
With our 60 Placecol skin care clinics nationally, Placecol became a trusted skin care brand to thousands of women in South Africa. The Placecol skin care brand was started by a legend in the beauty industry, Elma Mckenzie in Ermelo in 1980.
The result is that the upgraded Placecol skin care range assists with giving the skin a natural illuminated and radiant look, by helping to improve overall skin health. The new Placecol skin care range is paraben free, anti-irritant and contains allergen free fragrances specifically developed for Placecol in Switzerland.
The new Placecol skin care range is manufactured in an ISO 9001 approved facility and complies with international export standards. The new Placecol skin care range contains 46 active pharmaceutical grade ingredients. All these ingredients are pure and natural to ensure optimum penetration.
The Placecol skin care range is classified as a “dermaceutical” product which means that the active ingredients are delivered to the deeper layers of the skin, working on a cellular level to assist with creating cell harmonisation, resulting in a visible improvement within 7 days when the complete range is being used.
Listed below are seven unique benefits of the new Placecol skin care range:
- Maintains good skin health, to ensure a radiant skin.
- Promotes good skin architecture – stimulates collagen and elastin syntheses.
- Prevents the ageing process.
- Soft, gentle and protecting – delivers anti-oxidants to skin.
- Includes pure, natural active ingredients of pharmaceutical grade.
- Paraben, Allergen and Irritant Free.
- Visible results noticeable within 7 days of complete range being used.
Luminosity and skin radiance
A healthy radiant glow is an indication of good skin health. To obtain true skin luminosity and radiance the skin needs to be able to reflect light without any distortions. Placecol skin care assists with improving the skin condition to create a smooth even skin surface, allowing for optimal light reflection.
Placecol skin care works in two steps to improve the skin condition as follows:
Step 1- Smooth out skin surface irregularities
The Placecol skin care range contains a variety of powerful active ingredients that target the skin surface to gently remove dull lifeless cells, refine the grain of the skin and assist with regulating sebum production, improving the quality of light reflections, resulting in improved clarity and luminosity of the skin.
Active Ingredients: Lactic Acid, Glycolic Acid, Salicylic Acid and Pore Away.
Step 2 – Stimulate dermal activity
Placecol skin care helps to activate dermal activity, stimulating cell metabolism to help improve collagen and elastin synthesis, resulting in the dermal region becoming denser and more compact. Strong anti-oxidant activity helps to protect cells from damage caused by free radicals and improves micro-circulation to restore essential cell detoxification, assisting with maintaining optimum skin health.
Active Ingredients: Actopontine, Aqua Cacteen, Niacinamide, Matrixyl 3000 and Pepatight.
