Beauty buzzword: BB cream

Half a century ago, a German dermatologist concocted an ointment to treat skin that had undergone harsh cosmetic procedures. Dubbed a “blemish balm” or “BB cream”, the creation gained popularity in Asia, with Korean customers leading the way.

Now, BB creams are all the rage in North American, as major brands launch their own version of the multi-tasking hybrid that aims to bridge the gap between skincare and cosmetics.

It’s hard to believe that any product can replace all the steps in your skincare routine without compromising the effectiveness of each. But when we compare the claims made by BB creams with the proven benefits of the Glissandra Serum, it’s clear that Glissandra has been developing its own interpretation of a BB cream in the decades of research behind its potent Serum.

Glissandra Serum is powered by Glissandrin™, a patented suite of health-promoting compounds extracted from the Schisandra berry. This youth-preserving fruit has been the foundation of thousands of years of traditional Chinese medicine, and its potent extracts are now the subject of intensive study in Western medicine, as scientists search for a sustainable way to maintain the function of the body’s organs as we age.

Let’s take a look at how the Glissandra Serum, with Glissandrin at its core, stacks up against BB creams.

BB Cream Glissandra Serum
Smooth skin after cosmetic treatments 
  • Originally created to treat skin after cosmetic treatments.
  • Health-promoting properties of its key ingredient encourage the repair of skin cells after significant trauma.
  • Assists in suppressing inflammation and increasing the resistance of skin cells against adverse environmental factors, including light used in laser treatments.
Moisturize the skin
  • Contains commonly used ingredients to temporarily add moisture to the skin.
  • Helps inhibit the enzyme responsible for the depletion of collagen to promote skin’s supple, well-hydrated appearance.
  • 100% of clinical trial participants reported finding Glissandra Serum to be moisturizing.
Protect from the sun 
  • Includes SPF to protect the skin from sun damage.
  • Empowers skin cells to prevent damage from exposure to harmful solar radiation (UV rays).
  • Enhances skin cell’s inherent antioxidant levels and helps to suppress the biological activities that contribute to photo-aging.
Primer 
  • Creates surface for the application of additional layers of product.
  • Enhances skin health to create a smooth and supple canvas.
  • Highly lipid-soluble formulation readily penetrates the skin by passive diffusion, a natural absorption process, to prime the skin for cosmetics.
Even skin tone and hide blemishes 
  • Limited range of tinted formulations, which function as a light-coverage foundation and concealer by masking uneven skin tone.
  • Creates a healthy, even skin tone and reduces the appearance of blemishes and age spots.
  • Minimizes the need for heavy concealers and foundations that can exacerbate existing skin conditions.
  • Enhances mitochondrial function by helping to increase ATP production, promoting skin health, and iimproving cellular metabolism to treat blemishes at the cellular level.
Save time 
  • Designed to minimize the time spent during one’s daily beauty routine.
  • Effectively replaces multiple steps in a skincare regimen.
  • Fights mitochondrial decay by boosting the natural ability of skin cells to counter antioxidative damage, resulting in healthy, radiant skin.

Healthy, young-looking skin is now within reach; we simply need to shift the focus from covering skin to creating naturally beautiful skin at the cellular level; from fighting symptoms to addressing the root cause of skin issues, mitochondrial decay. Before jumping on the BB cream bandwagon, consider how you can achieve real, sustainable results from products that put skin health first.

Update re: a letter from a customer and fan

A couple of weeks ago, we shared a letter from a customer who found great relief from acute sunburns on his scalp after using Glissandra Serum. Pino has since written again to share a lesson he learned about staying vigilant with sun protection.

When I sent you my testimonial a while ago, I forgot to mention that after healing my scalp I became a little complacent and stopped using the Serum for some time as I kept procrastinating ordering a new supply. When I saw my scalp starting to deteriorate again, I resumed the Serum application and gradually it restored my scalp skin as before. I don’t intend to have that happen again…

As we move into the spring and summer months, with long days of glorious sunshine, it is important to continue using the proper products to protect our skin from harmful UV rays.

A letter from a customer and fan

At our head office in Vancouver, Canada, the Glissandra team is always thrilled to receive letters, emails, and phone calls from enthusiastic customers – and sometimes their spouse! – who can’t wait to share the incredible experiences they’ve had since they were first introduced to Glissandra. It makes our day and reminds us of how lucky we are to be making a difference in people’s lives.
We don’t like to gloat, but we have some of the best customers and fans around! Take Pino, who splits his time between Vancouver and sunny California. He’s given us permission to share his unedited letter with you, in hopes of helping other people who have similar issues.
I had acute sunburn problems on my scalp for a long time, as I am Bald & enjoy exercising outdoor. I used to put on a lot of sun block, but that did not help with the development of redness with an expanded whitish colored skin, sometimes leading to blisters & scars. My skin was so delicate that only a light touch would generate a blister. Also my scalp had developed scalings.
Since using the Glissandra serum, my scalp has much improved. To ensure I have maximum protection I always put on an extra layer of serum just before doing sports under the sun (particularly in California where I spend quite a bit of time). I do not have blister problems anymore, and the scarred tissues are healed; even the pigmentation has improved greatly.
Thank you for sharing your story with us, Pino. We appreciate your support!
