La Vallée provides an innovative range of products based on research combining nature's resources with the latest developments in cosmetic technology. The active elements of La Vallée products are sourced in the heart of the Swiss Alps and include natural wonders such as plants, flowers and minerals as well as natural spring water. By keeping in mind what today's women want, La Vallée has designed a product line that perfectly corresponds to the modern woman's needs.
Marvels of the Alpine World
The natural resources found in the Swiss Alps have inspired many legends over thousands of years. A broad variety of natural resources are found in the wide open spaces nestled deep in these mountainous regions. The purest natural glacier water feeds the shoots of the most precious Alpine botanical extracts - Buddleja davidii (butterfly tree) and Thymus vulgaris (thyme).
Ptilocephala pyrenaella is a rare species of butterfly that is only found in Switzerland's deep alpine valleys. Biologists from all over the world are dazzled by this butterfly's stunning beauty and impressive capacity for survival. Scientists spent a long time discovering the Ptilocephala pyrenaella's origins and the secrets to its longevity. Its long life span is attributed to the butterfly tree.
Nectapure, a synergistic combination of Buddleja davidii (butterfly tree) and Thymus vulgaris (thyme), proved to be exceptionally active in ozone protection tests. Ozone is the most powerful oxidant; it is a reactive type of oxygen, produced by photochemical reactions and cigarette smoke, which significantly increases "oxidative stress" on human skin and causes premature skin ageing. La Vallée products containing an ozone protection ingredient, such as Nectapure, protect skin from ozone-related damage, help prevent wrinkles and loss of the skin's elasticity and vitality.
Nectapure's antioxidant properties were proved through in-vitro testing. The study shows that Nectapure is an excellent moisturizer as well. Due to its antioxidant and moisturizing properties, Nectapure has been included in all our products to fight "city stress", our anti-ageing product line and day treatment skin care products.
The Swiss Alps - A Botanical Treasure Garden
The Swiss Alps are filled with botanical treasures; a fact that the monks who lived in alpine valleys were well aware of many centuries ago. In terms of skin care, these valuable natural resources have been a source of inspiration and creativity for chemists involved in research as well as cosmetic and medical laboratories. The extracts of plants found in Swiss valleys are obtained using ancient know-how and techniques designed by skilled professionals along with magical secrets in recipe books written by the monks living in these remote valleys.
La Vallée hired a team of professionals who, aside from being skilled experts in their various fields, were driven by their passion for knowledge to look for ancient secrets in old books of spells. They thus discovered these highly effective extracts and added them to our products, which are designed to conserve women's beauty.
