FAQ


Which benefits do your products provide?
By combining the use of our cosmetics as described in the skin care guide, you are sure to optimise our products’ effectiveness.

The Day Cream gives you an immediate feeling of comfort. In addition to its anti-ageing and antioxidant virtues, it moisturises and soothes the skin, leaving it firm and soft, all day long.

The Night Cream has a higher concentration of active ingredients because cells regenerate at night. The cream regenerates hydrates and thickens the elastin and collagen fibres.

Brightening Serum: the effects are visible as soon as the first application has been completed – this results in immediate smoothing.

Gentle Exfoliating Cream: your skin is immediately softer and smoother. In the long-term, a regular removal of dead skin stimulates cell regeneration and so the visible signs of ageing are reduced.

The High Performance Balm for Men provides comprehensive care. This cream makes the daily routine of male skin care as comfortable as possible. It can be used after shaving to the skin to relax and smooth. It also has an anti-ageing effect.

Eye and Lip Contour Serum: This serum provides an immediate comfortable feeling. The skin is smoothed, the complexion radiant. Even after just a few days, dark circles and imperfections around the lips are reduced. After 21 days, wrinkles around the eyes and lips are reduced.

How long before the products start to work?

For the Creams: As of the first application, you will feel the soothing and moisturising effects of the creams. They immediately give your skin a comfortable and supple feeling. To reduce the signs of ageing, you will see a difference as of the second week of application, if you use both the Day and Night Creams.

Gentle Exfoliating Cream: Your skin is immediately softer and smoother. In the long-term, a regular removal of dead skin stimulates cell regeneration and so the visible signs of ageing are reduced.

Brightening Serum: The effects are visible as soon as the first application has been completed – this results in immediate smoothing. Using an effective combination of Brightening Serum with other Oenolia products, 28 days are enough to make the skin supple and firmer again.

High-Performance Balm for Men: It instantly soothes and moisturises skin after shaving. A booster effect can be felt immediately, thanks to the extracted plant tensors. With regular use of the balm, the skin is protected and displays an anti-ageing effect.

Eye and Lip Contour Serum: This serum provides an immediate comfortable feeling. The skin is smoothed, the complexion radiant. Even after just a few days, dark circles and imperfections around the lips are reduced. After 21 days, wrinkles around the eyes and lips are reduced.

When can I start to use these cosmetics?
A young woman can start to use the products after adolescence. We advise women to start to protect their skin from external factors such as pollution or the sun very early on.

A young man appreciates the application of the High Performance balm after his first shave for a soothing, moisturising and protecting skin.

Which other active ingredients are used in the products?
The other active ingredients used in the creams are: Chlorella Vulgaris extract (green micro algae), Pelvetia canaliculata extract and vitamin E derivative. These active ingredients provide a regeneration effect (repair, anti-ageing), and give skin a feeling of comfort (hydration, softness, relief).

The active ingredient in the in the Brightening Serum, which is an aqueous extract of brown algae, is derived from the reproductive part of the algae and contains molecules, such as isoflavones, which can transform into mimetic elements of DHEA (anti-ageing hormones). The serum also contains a tensor (prolamine and polymannuronat connection) extracted from plants, the skin becomes visibly more silky and smooth.

The exfoliant, made from ground grape seeds, is refined with aloe vera and pumice stone powder. It also contains oleaginous marigold extract which, just like healing ointment, has a soothing effect, as well as ethyl linoleate (Vitamin F), which has a regenerative effect on the cells in the epidermis.

The High Performance Balm has a high proportion of active ingredients. Glycerine, panthenol and carrageen extract provide hydration, softness and protection. In addition, wheat proteins form a film, which can smooth the micro-relief and combat the slackening of the skin.

The smoothing Eye and Lip Contour Serum also contains natural algae, light-correcting pigments, cornflower water, arnica extract, hyaluronic acid and pro-vitamin E.

Do your products contain parabens?

Yes, many formula must be protected from germs so that they can be used in all climates and over several months. This is a safety requirement for consumers throughout the entire duration of product use, even if the jar is left open and the cream is applied with your fingers. Oenolia uses synthetic preservatives recognised by European scientific authorities, and in low dosages (less than 1%).

On the basis of independent scientific studies that demonstrated that parabens are harmless with regard to human health and the environment, the European Commission has recommended their use as preservatives in cosmetics. Furthermore, the American Cancer Society has found no elements to prove that parabens could be a risk factor in the development of breast cancer.

Our Exfoliating Cream does not contain any parabens.

What is the relationship between Oenolia and wine?
Oenolia cosmetics have something precious: polyphenols, from grape seeds. Polyphenols are also found in wine. Who better to bring you a range of cosmetics with the most powerful antioxidant in the plant world than wine specialists working in partnership with a major laboratory?
