Laboratoire Remède

Laboratoire Remède At-A-Glance

Strengths: One good tinted moisturizer with SPF 30.

Weaknesses: Expensive; no products to treat acne or skin discolorations; jar packaging.

This expensive, French-themed skin-care line is owned by Bliss, a New York–based spa that is in turn owned by Starwood Hotels and Resorts. It has been around since 1997, when a group of "overachieving French scientists" decided to create products that repair and protect skin from further damage. Based on the product selection and their ingredients, it seems that these French chemists were more aligned with mad scientists than with what it takes to create a truly beneficial range of skin-care products. If the goal was to provide products that help repair damage, why do so many Remède items contain ingredients that generate free-radical damage and cause cell death, such as hydrogen peroxide? And why does keeping skin in top shape have to be so expensive? It doesn't, but the marketing direction and the rather shockingly high prices have a lot more to do with this line's pretense than with skin care.

According to information on www.blissworld.com, each Remède product "contains a 'formula core' of advanced ingredients, plus permeation technology to get the dew down deep." The reality is that many of these products are some of the most troublesome around, and sunscreens are in very short supply. Then again, marketing sunscreens isn't fun or sexy, so it's easy to see why Remède chose to downplay this essential and instead focused on their fantasyland of claims promising to tackle every concern someone with aging skin may have. Never mind that the ingredients are mostly ordinary and incapable of coming anywhere close to being an all-in-one solution. Remède may brag about the ability of their products to penetrate and deliver ingredients deep into your skin. But for many Remède products that would be a major problem, because it means your skin would be penetrated by skin-damaging ingredients such as hydrogen peroxide, peppermint oil, and lemon oil. As expected, there are a handful of remarkable choices, but they're not remarkable because they do what Remède claims; rather, they are praiseworthy because they contain blends of ingredients that are legitimately capable of improving the healthy functioning and appearance of skin.
