Decorté AQ Meliority is the most premium range within Decorté, and the best-selling luxury range in Japan. Known as 'Asia's best kept beauty secret', Decorté is a culmination of almost 50 years of meticulous scientific research led by world-renowned Nobel Prize-winning scientists to create a technically advanced ingredient mix that the body can adapt to and understand, fused with an abundance of natural ingredients complemented by the best of ancient Eastern medicine.
AWAKENING THE SKIN'S ABILITY TO SELF-REGENERATE AND RECAPTURE YOUTH
Inspired by regenerative medicine's approach to cell renewal, Decorté AQ Meliority achieves remarkable performance levels, awakening the skin's ability to self-regenerate and recapture youth. It reinvents and reconstructs the skin, deeply penetrating the layers and reviving skin tissue that has been damaged or even destroyed. Its rejuvenating and transformative capabilities deliver the deepest benefits to stressed skin with patented and advanced formulations that give incomparable results. Each formula is saturated with at least 20 skin-transforming beauty actives, some considerably more. Patented delivery capsule technology allows the ration of ingredients to be precisely balanced.
The evolved regenerative medicine approach focuses on three elements:
1. The cells in the epidermis - delivering ingredients required by cell tissue to proliferate, divide and layer and creating a simulated biological skin mimicking membrane.
2. The dermal matrix - the footholds for the cells creating an environment that is indispensable for cells to grow and proliferate which have the same structure as factors that command collagen production in the fibroblasts.
3. Growth Factor Protection and Storage - reviving ‘self-regeneration capabilities’ protecting growth factors from breaking down within the body and making them more effective and faster at skin regeneration encouraging the growth and production of fibroblasts and epidermal cells via collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production. Also ensuring Growth Factors can be stored effectively, reversing the decline in storage associated with skin ageing.
THE VITALITY OF BENIFUKI EXTRACT FROM THE LEGENDARY ISLAND OF YAKUSHIMA
The star ingredient is Benifuki extract from Yakushima island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where the organic hybrid green tea is picked by hand and carefully stored before processing. It is cultivated on rich fertile soil and nourished by the many waterfalls on the island that are rich in negative ions. A hybrid Japanese tea, Benifuki, was created in 1993 and has the highest levels of polyphenols in a tea in the form of methylated catechins and tannins.
Benifuki extract improves structural stability in GF storage, leaving skin more receptive to skin regeneration signals. Combined with Stem Rise iPG" to enhance the proliferation function of epidermal PG cells, and “iP-Solution" enhances mitochondrial quality.
IN PURSUIT OF THE ULTIMATE SKINCARE
EACH AND EVERY INGREDIENT IN AQ MELIORITY HAS BEEN CAREFULLY SELECTED AND REFINED
MURASAKI CHA EXTRACT
Murasaki cha extract from a purple tea grown at an altitude of 2000m in Kenya under strong UV rays rich in anthocyanins making it a powerful neutralizer of free radicals, a good Superoxide Dismutase enzyme that eliminates damaging oxygen molecules in the skin cells.
WHITE BIRCH WATER
White Birch water (Betula alba) harvested 4 weeks a year during the snow melt, rich in 17 amino acids, minerals, enzymes, proteins, antioxidants. Betulinic acid, a pentacylic triterpenoid with antiretroviral and anti-inflammatory properties found in the white birch bark.
WHITE MUCINA EXTRACT
White Mucuna Extract from Mucuna Puriens, more commonly known as Velvet Bean, has high levels of serotonin on its leaves and contains L-Dopa a direct precursor to dopermine. Both ingredients work on the neurotransmitter cells, which enhance the skin's responsiveness and encourage total relaxation, resulting in better healing capabilities for the skin. It also has high levels of antioxidants, promotes better circulation within the skin and acts as a moisturising agent.
BLACK SOY NECTAR™
BLACK SOY NECTAR™ contained in AQ Meliority is extracted from the finest quality black soybeans from Tamba, Japan. The extract is rich in anthocyanin, activates senescent cells, and is also an antioxidant moisturizer.
The AQ Meliority formulations elevate the sensorial experience for the skin using multiple emulsifications for a richer, protective sensation. The range's fine fragrance has top notes of Wintersweet Oil (Chimonanthus praecox) over a green floral heart and woody base.
Other ingredients include many capable of surviving extreme climatic conditions: Algenic acid, a supreme moisturize maintainer, Siberian Ginseng for cell proliferation; Chimaphila umbellate leaf extract and antioxidant; Coptis japonica extract, an anti-inflammatory.
DECORTÉ SEEKS TO UNDERSTAND NATURE AND BRING A HOLISTIC VIEWPOINT TO BEAUTY
The range has over 20 carefully selected beauty actives per cleanser, emulsion, lotion and serum and over 30 in the creams, all of which are medical grade substances carefully selected for their similarity to substances naturally occurring in the skin.
The delivery formula is patented and features an advanced delivery system using capsules to transport essential beauty ingredients via high purity, high oleic delaysomes. This technology uses phospholipids biosimilar to the skin's keratinocytes and a double peptide, a component naturally found in collagen. It senses the most damaged areas of the skin and acts as though it is alive whilst repairing and restoring.
