Skin Regimen is the new modern plant chemistry™ skincare brand for urban dwellers with a multi-hyphenated lifestyle, who want to look and feel at their best every day. As graphically represented in the logo slashes, Skin Regimen is for those who thrive in today’s fast-paced times, constantly connected and on the front line yet wanting to keep their skin healthy and youthful for longer.
Clinically proven to reduce the effects of stress and lifestyle aging on both skin and mind, Skin Regimen was created by Comfort Zone, the skincare division of the family-owned company Davines. Founded in Parma, Italy in 1983, the group is guided by Dr. Davide Bollati, a cosmetic chemist and visionary entrepreneur known for his sustainable approach to beauty. The Davines Group became a certified B Corporation in December 2016 and is now proudly part of a global network of companies that have redefined their business to make it a source of positive impact for the people and the planet.
Lifestyle Aging: Is your lifestyle stressing your skin?
Many of the external factors we face every day, as well as our lifestyle choices all affect the speed of aging on both skin and mind. These factors alter the skin’s normal cellular processes, particularly DNA methylation, glycation, oxidation and inflammation, contributing to cellular breakdown and eventually hindering skin health, even in biologically young skin.
Recent studies show that the skin not only reacts to psychological stress triggered in the brain, but it’s also able to independently produce some stress hormones, in response to environmental aggressions, such as too much sun or pollution. Skin cortisol overproduction is one of the elements that in the short term makes us look tired, fatigued and older, and over time, fuels inflammation and oxidation, accelerating the overall aging process.
Modern Plant ChemistryTM
Skin Regimen modern plant chemistry™ formulas target the most common stress-related signs - dehydration, city-gray skin, wrinkles and imperfections – to restore the optimal conditions for a healthier, glowing skin.
Designed to be totally functional, Skin Regimen formulas are concentrated in powerful botanicals and high-tech molecules, and do not not contain any unnecessary ingredients for the skin. Formulated with a natural aroma and cooling massageable textures, they are free from synthetic fragrance, silicones, animal derivatives, artificial colorants, mineral oils and parabens. The natural, genderless aroma is a modern blend of four essential oils with rebalancing, reinvigorating properties. Juniper, Copahu, Rosewood and Cedarwood extracted from resins and berries, known for opening our consciousness, providing the strength and endurance needed to face life’s challenges. Tested to be below the allergenic level for comfort and safety of the skin, the aroma has been clinically tested and found to be “not irritating” (based on 48-hours closed patch test, on 25 people, 18-70 years old).
Skin Regimen is enriched with our Longevity Complex™ an exclusive mix of organic superfood extracts and a high-tech molecule, counteracting the effects of stress and aging accelerators. It contains the anti-inflammatory Wild Indigo, modulating excess cortisol and boosting beta-endorphins, Maqui Berry with powerful antioxidants anthocyanins, and anti-glycation Spinach and Carnosine, a dipeptide. Spinach, thanks to its folic acid content, also promotes a correct DNA methylation.
The variety of spinach we are using, Spinacia Oleracea Viroflay, was inspired by the principle of bio-diversity. It is the result of a rigorous comparative assessments of the active ingredients’ concentration; this ancient variety has proved to be particularly rich in Vitamin B1, B6 and B9 (Folic Acid) compared to others. With this, we decided to grow and harvest it in Parma, Italy, with the cooperation of local farmers.
/mind & skin empowerment
A modern skincare approach that empowers you from inside out, working on the skin while also improving the mind, and on the mind to improve the skin.
In cooperation with Prof. Andrea Sgoifo Stress Physiologist of the University of Parma, Skin Regimen has been clinically proven to improve the stress response.
An independent pilot clinical test was conducted on 20 women, 25-50 years old, who have applied Skin Regimen Microalgae Essence and Tripeptide Cream following the Skin Regimen Mindful Massage ritual, twice a day for 28 days. The measurements were based on ECG recordings, saliva sample collection and psychometric/behavioral testing.

Macro Waves SoundTM
This composition, exclusively created for Skin Regimen Urban Longevity facialTM, incorporates both natural and synthetic sounds that help the listener to detach from everyday rhythm while retrieving the right level of energy.
Composed by Painé Cuadrelli, a music producer and sound designer based in Milan, it is inspired by MSRT (Mind Sound Resonance Technique), a yoga-based mindful relaxation technique using the OM vibrations.
In line with the 4 steps of the treatment, it starts with a pulsating frequency that slowly merges into electronic musical elements in a progression of tempo and form. Sea waves, wildlife and subtle wind sounds enter the soundscape as a delicate connection to the outside.
Digital textures blend with harmonic parts, slowly finishing, at the end of the facial, with the same initial pulse.
