Artistry® scientists’ findings and expertise led to this customized collection, which targets men’s two primary skincare needs – oil control and hydration – to reveal healthier-, younger-looking skin in men of all ages and ethnicities.
“The Artistry® Men Collection optimizes the modern man’s skincare regimen,” says Vice President of Global Beauty Maud Pansing. “It’s formulated to perform with technology specialized to a man’s skin and a signature packaging aesthetic that speaks to his strength and style.”
The science behind Artistry™ Men
Using global data from the Artistry™ F.A.C.E.S. proprietary diagnostic system, Artistry® scientists identified key differences between men’s and women’s skin. Higher testosterone levels trigger more sebum production, which creates more oil and shine. Yet despite this increase in oil production, men’s skin tends to be drier on the surface due to lower levels of Natural Moisture Factor (NMF). Further, shaving disrupts the skin’s barrier function, promoting dryness through moisture loss.
In response to these findings Artistry® scientists created DermaSync Complex, the technology that powers the Artistry™ Men Collection. DermaSync Complex, a two-phase blend of exclusive ingredients for oil control and moisture management, helps restore skin while infusing moisture for a noticeably youthful look:
- Phase One/Oil Control: Controls excess oil to help prevent shine.
- Phase Two/Moisture Management: Deeply hydrates and helps to improve the skin’s moisture barrier function to keep vital nutrients and hydration in.
Our exclusive Micro X6 Peptide nourishes skin to help diminish the look of fine lines, while patented Oat Extract helps exfoliate to keep skin feeling smooth. Our exclusive NMF Liposome helps deliver essential lipids – Ceramide 3, Lecithin and Beta-Sitosterol – along with natural humectants deep into the skin, directing them to where they’re needed most. Horse Chestnut Complex and an exclusive Shiso and Aloe Complex help reduce shaving irritation and redness.
After using the skincare system for a month, 76% of men noticed an improvement in the appearance of their skin. “This statistic is staggering,” says Michelle D’Allaird, master skin health educator for the Artistry® brand and CIDESCO aesthetician, “it indicates the dramatic performance of Artistry® Men.”
“After four weeks of use, men in clinical studies showed an up to 56.2 percent reduction in facial oil production and an up to 83.4 percent increase in moisturization,”¹ notes Senior Principal Research Scientist Jesse Leverett.
