diptyque is continually rewriting its own story.
A new page has opened in the collection L’Art du Soin: following body care products, the face is now the subject of its attentions. Colette saw the face as a landscape, an image that suits it perfectly. It is the reflection of our deepest nature and its many facets.
That is why each of the rituals that we have reinvented for radiant, healthy skin focuses on elegance, simplicity and softness. The selection of raw materials, and the observation and interpretation of ancestral procedures are elevated to the status of an art. diptyque is inspired by traditional cosmetic methods and extols their benefits. “The slow infusion” is the cornerstone of these methods: a gentle distillation of flowers, leaves or seeds that conserves all their qualities.
The Damask rose, one of the noblest materials in perfumery and cosmetics, is the primary ingredient, matched at whim with jasmine, white lily, clay, rice powder and petals... or with essential floral wax, a natural wax with soft, protective properties.
diptyque has the right to be proud of its expertise in natural fragrances and their extraction, in wax, and in the choice and respect of its raw materials. This rigour, now applied to cosmetics, is enriched by the seductive concept of “metamorphosis”, a concept that has an air of wonder about it. Is there not a certain magic in these incomparable textures, which melt on your fingers, turning into oil then lotion, or in these powders which are transformed into an airy foam?
Lightness, fluidity, freshness and delicate fragrances... everything that diptyque knows about nature is summoned into these lotions, oils and pomades, whose pots and bottles are symbolically decorated with an alembic still on a silvery background. Men and women alike will appreciate the benefits.
EAU Infusse : Infused Facial Water
The Infused Facial Water for the Face has a central role in this process: full of vitamins, minerals and moisturising agents, it is an ideal substitute for water in each of the products in the range.
Made from a hydrolate of Damask rose - from which it takes its scent - an infusion of nasturtium, which brings out the radiance in one’s complexion, and a blend of nine traditional plants and flowers, it is fresh and absorbent, cleansing the skin gently, moisturising, toning and restoring it to its natural radiance. Applied before cream or your everyday skincare product, it will increase its powers by tenfold!
Poudre Purete : Radiance Boosting Powder
The fineness of the Radiance Boosting Powder for the Face evokes the Japanese rituals by which it was inspired. Its fragrance blends the invigorating freshness of verbena with the smoothness of neroli.
Upon contact with water, it is transformed into a delicate foam, which gently cleanses and gives a radiant shine. White clay restores minerals to the skin as it cleanses, and is infused with rose petal, jasmine and sweet orange blossom powders, which have softening, soothing properties. A cocktail of vitamins, ECA and trace minerals (sodium, magnesium, zinc and manganese), it revives dull, fatigued complexions.
Pommade Demaquillante : Nourishing Cleansing Balm
The Nourishing Cleansing Balm for the Face, a white balm with the appearance of wax and scented with geranium and roses, transforms into a fine oil between your fingers, then into a milky emulsion upon contact with water. It cleanses the skin, leaving it purified and as soft as velvet. Sweet almond oil, known for its nourishing, soothing and regenerative properties, is mixed with three essential waxes: refreshing ylang-ylang, softening mimosa and astringent geranium, and can be used as a mask.
Agrile Gommage : Multi-Use Exfoliating Clay
Multi-Use Exfoliating Clay for the Face makes the skin pure and light. It is enriched with marble powder - a key ingredient in exfoliation due to its very fine particles having a very gentle action - kaolin, which restores minerals, cleanses and purifies, and softening rice and oat powders. It exhales a vaporous scent of violet, invigorated by an accord of Mate. The cream has a particularly smooth texture, which is lovely to work with and can be easily applied using a makeup brush, as with all the foundation bases traditionally used in Japan.
It has multiple uses, as this perfect exfoliant can also be used as a mask, then rinsed off with a towel soaked in warm water. Adding a few drops of Infused Facial Water to the mask will double its fresh, invigorating action.
Voile Protecteur : Protective Moisturizing Lotion
Protective Moisturizing Lotion for the Face. It has multiple uses: on its own, before another cream or even on top of foundation to increase its protection. Its intense moisturising action also has SPF 15 for sun protection. It owes the name of Lotion to its velvety lightness, like a breath of wind that keeps the skin hydrated for many hours. A combination of refreshing Damask rose hydrolate infused with extracts of white lily and calendula, which moisturise, calm and soften, and grape extract which brightens the complexion and acts on pigmentation. It blends the scent of orange blossom with the tangy freshness of Petitgrain Paraguay.
Original, surprisingly sensual textures with delicate fragrances that metamorphoses upon contact with water or with the skin. With carefully selected floral infusions and waxes, which give the face a radiant, healthy glow, diptyque has devised a new ritual dedicated to beauty: simple, soothing gestures for every day of the week. Skincare for the Face.
