Gallinée’s first range, LA CULTURE has grown in popularity since it was first launched earlier this year. This brand was the brainchild of Marie Drago, a French Doctor in Pharmacy and a member of the French Society of Cosmetic Science, with over 15 years’ experience working with successful and innovative skincare brands.
Gallinée is skincare that’s designed to work in harmony with our skins own microbiome (the name for all good bacteria and microorganisms that live on and in your body), I like to say this brand is where Science Meets Skincare. With their patented complex of prebiotics, probiotics and lactic acid, your skin is in very good hands, (see graphic below).
The La Culture range is bursting with active ingredients at levels where they really make a difference. At the centre of their skincare is their patented Triple Biotec Complex and
TRIPLE BIOTIC COMPLEX: A high concentration of our patented mix of prebiotics, probiotics and postbiotics helps to support your microbiome in the most gentle and effective way possible.
I have been using two products from the lovely La Culture range the Hand Cream is my favourite out of the two simply because even within 6 weeks I have noticed a real change in how my hands feel and look. This isn’t a cream targeted at making your hands look younger but they will feel nourished, softer, more supple, hydrated and visibly smoother. I apply this morning, noon and night, I always have it close by and like how instantly it’s absorbed but also leaves my hands with that soft nourished feeling.
This cream also protects against external, environmental aggressors and contains these skin loving ingredients
DAISY EXTRACT: A powerful active used for its brightening properties, daisy extract also helps prevent the onset of dark spots.
SHEA BUTTER: A hydrating and protective natural ingredient that can also help with micro-circulation.
It’s a wonderful lightweight hand cream that never feels greasy or that needs reapplying too often. It’s very affordable too, make sure you make a note to check it out if you’re on the lookout for a new hand cream.
I have also been enjoying using the Hydrating Face Cream which leaves my skin smooth and hydrated. This as with all the products in this collection contains the Triple biotech Complex (see graphic above), as well as these skin-loving ingredients.
YACON EXTRACT: A root hailing from the same family as Jerusalem artichokes, yacon contains one of the largest amounts of prebiotic found in natural plants. In Central America, it is often used as a natural sugar. Gallinée’s yacon is cold-pressed to retain its qualities.
ORGANIC MYRTLE EXTRACT: Sourced from the French Mediterranean region, myrtle is a plant containing a large number of phenolic compounds; well-known for their antioxidant actions, to protect skin from oxidative stress.
It is a lovely cream, especially if you are prone to dry, dehydrated skin. Its gentle and non-greasy formula feels lightweight on the skin and provides a really smooth base for makeup. I noticed especially how soft my skin felt after using this and how throughout the day my skin felt really hydrated.
I’m excited to see what products Gallinee will release next and I am impressed by their first collection. Its innovative and I like that they have harnessed the enormous benefits of helpful bacteria and created a very effective skincare brand with this at its very centre.
