The new Advanced Genifique has proven efficacy on the skin microbiome and as a result, the skin recovers faster, is stronger and looks visibly younger.

“It has taken 15 years researching, collaborating, testing and validating the link between the microbiome and the skin’s health and appearance. Today, the new Advanced Genifique has proven efficacy on the skin microbiome, as a result, the skin recovers faster, is stronger and looks visibly younger,” Chua said at the launch, which was graced by the faces of the new Advanced Genifique: Neelofa, Venicemin and Debbie Goh.

What exactly is the microbiome? The skin microbiome is a beneficial ecosystem or microorganisms that live on your skin. It is an integral part of skin’s surface, and its balance is essential to skin’s health and appearance.

Joselyn Lee, senior education manager for Lancome revealed that the new Advanced Genifique is a formulation enriched with seven pre- and probiotic fractions that acts on the skin microbiome to accelerate its recovery from lifestyle and environmental aggressors.
