The skin around the eyes is significantly different than other facial skin – it is 7-10 times thinner and more delicate. Additionally, it ages more quickly than any other area of your face and therefore needs special care.

Like all ARTISTRY Skin care, SUPREME LX products were designed to be incorporated into your ARTISTRY Skin care PREP, INFUSE and NOURISH regimen. If you have additional skin care concerns, you can boost the benefits by simply customising your regimen by adding targeted ARTISTRY products.
The YOUTH XTEND skin care collection revitalises the future of skin by strengthening and extending the lifespan of skin cells. Regeneration (in the product name) and rejuvenation both refer to a benefit of SUPREME LX products where energy is renewed from amplifying the skin’s natural ability to energise itself. With SUPREME LX products, skin acts up to 15 years younger.
SUPREME LX products are the most technologically advanced and effective ARTISTRY skin care formulas for achieving younger looking skin. The final products contain the best available technologies to reduce all major visible signs of aging.
A mix of clinical, consumer and in vitro testing was performed to support safety and efficacy claims. Results are shown from 25 studies with over 850 evaluations to ensure safety, performance, and consumer satisfaction. All test results are filed in the Research and Development Department archives.
We oppose animal testing and our products are not tested on animals unless required by government regulations. We actively support initiatives to create and use alternatives to required animal tests. We conduct clinical and consumer testing with human volunteers.
SUPREME LX Regenerating Cream contains Acetylglucosamine (an ingredient which helps cell renewal) from crustacean shells and found only in the face cream, while cholesterol from sheep lanolin is found in both the face and eye creams. ARTISTRY carefully selects ingredients to be used in its cosmetic products by considering both safety and efficacy of ingredients. Many animal derived ingredients have long-standing use in the cosmetic industry and are contained in some ARTISTRY produced cosmetic products, although we continuously seek to reduce their use whenever safe and effective alternatives are possible. These ingredients are reviewed thoroughly by our scientists and follow the regulatory requirements of the country they are marketed in. Also, special consideration is given regarding the use of animal derivatives in certain markets due to local religious customs and practices.
We do not have a specific programme for gluten, but we have a general screening programme for raw materials from food-based ingredients that are known to be allergens. We screen those raw materials for the presence of proteins to verify that the product containing those ingredients would not elicit allergic reactions in consumers allergic to the food ingredient. Gluten is a protein and would be detected in a screening assay.
Biorhythms are physical, mental and behavioural changes that follow a 24-hour cycle, responding primarily to light and darkness. (Biorhythms are also referred to as Circadian Rhythms.) The study of biorhythms and how our bodies innately respond to them is called Chronobiology.
ARTISTRY scientists developed these exclusive formulas by leveraging their discovery of new ingredients and an understanding of next-generation technologies.
ONE: Gardenia Grandiflora Stem Cell Extracts Stem Cells are the origin of plant vitality; they self-renew and never undergo the aging process. The Gardenia Grandiflora, chosen for its potency and purity, has enough energy to flourish in some of the harshest climates on the planet, and its stem cells were discovered to possess extraordinary regenerative powers.
Re-synchronises Natural Skin Functions: Skin functions best when its natural bio-rhythms are balanced. By day, skin responds to environmental stress and protects itself. By night, skin repairs damage and replenishes moisture, along with other functions. Skin gets unsynchronised due to many different causes such as lack of sleep, UV damage, illness, chronological aging, travel, stress, etc. It functions less efficiently, and this leads to visible signs of aging.
Gardenia Grandiflora Stem Cell extracts help skin “reset” and resynchronise these natural biorhythms, to help skin prevent visible signs of aging.
TWO: CellEffect24 Complex A multiphase technology that helps replenish, energise, repair and protect the skin by helping renew and amplify skin’s ability to energise itself better than ever. CellEffect24 Complex is enriched with 24 Karat Gold. Also known as “Pure Gold,” it imparts optical light diffusion, giving a soft focus effect to skin. Wrinkles and imperfections are instantly diffused, enhancing the younger look of skin.
Re-Energises Skin: Skin requires energy to power all its functions; these energy levels naturally diminish as we age, leading to visible signs of aging. CellEffect24 Complex has a profound effect on your skin’s natural energy levels by helping multiply skin’s natural ability to energise itself.
ARTISTRY scientists found that there was a correlation between the way skin acts and chronological age. They developed an accurate measurement method to evaluate the way skin acts and, with the help of our Advanced Imaging Laboratory instrumentation, conducted a clinical study to demonstrate the effect of SUPREME LX Regenerating Cream and SUPREME LX Regenerating Eye Cream on skin. The study used a group of people between 45-60 years old. After 6 weeks of product usage, the measurement method confirmed the average improvement of how skin acted for those who used SUPREME LX products was up to 15 years younger.
CellEffect24 Complex helps multiply skin’s natural ability to energise itself, and contains several new ingredients: 24 Karat Gold, Rhodiola, and Green Acerola Cherry, in addition to Cardiolipin, Spinach Leaf Extract and L-Carnosine, which were part of CellEffect Technology.
Gardenia Grandiflora Stem Cell extracts are harvested by High Tech Nature (HTN) technology, which is an exclusive process. It's an eco-sustainable way to extract the specific substances involved in the plant’s defensive responses against environmental and biological stress without harming the plant.
The harvesting process results in more uniform botanical extracts because there is no environmental variation in weather, sunlight, soil or water. By using this sustainable process, the harvesting of the Gardenia Grandiflora Stem Cell extracts ensures both consistency and stability, which yields a higher purity level with up to 1,000 times the active molecule concentrations.
SUPREME LX products use pure, natural liquid 24 Karat Gold in the formulas. In addition to being part of CellEffect24 Complex, along with other optics, it provides soft focus, light diffusion and helps improve the appearance of wrinkles.
Spinacia Oleracea (Spinach) Leaf extract is an exclusive, NUTRILITE-produced extract that helps to charge the skin with energy. Furthermore, as a powerful antioxidant, it helps to protect the skin from oxidative stress. But most important, it enhances the natural repair of the skin. The Spinach is grown on NUTRILITE farms, and it was the first vertically integrated NUTRILITE ingredient utilised in an ARTISTRY cosmetic product. This means it was the first time that all production steps (planting, growing, harvesting, extracting and purifying the extracts) were performed by NUTRILITE.
The Green Acerola Cherry Extract is exclusive to ARTISTRY skin care, and has a very high antioxidant value because it is a rich, natural source of the antioxidant Vitamin C. In fact, Acerola Cherry has been shown to be one of the richest natural sources of Vitamin C, much more than traditionally lauded citrus fruits. Acerola Cherry is a vertically-integrated NUTRILITE ingredient used in ARTISTRY products, and is grown on our largest NUTRILITE farm, which produces Acerola Cherry year round.
Biorhythms are the natural changes that our bodies and minds follow during the 24-hour cycle of a full day. The study of this and how our bodies respond is known as Chronobiology. ARTISTRY scientists investigated the role our natural biorhythms play in skin’s overall look and resistance to aging. They discovered that there are benefits to having properly synchronised skin, one where the functions are aligned with the time of day. It is able to better protect itself by day and better repair itself by night.
Each SUPREME LX Collection product undergoes a robust microtexturising process that achieves a rich, luxurious texture not found in any other ARTISTRY product. SUPREME LX products are produced using a 97-step microtexturising process that creates two of the smallest particle creams that we have ever made. These small particles give SUPREME LX products a firm, smooth, luxurious feel and allow for seamless absorption into the skin. The products are manufactured in small batches with the utmost care.
The SUPREME LX products have been thoroughly tested on groups of individuals with sensitive skin. There was no evidence of allergic response or extreme irritation. However, we recognise that no testing programme can guarantee that all individuals who wish to use it will not react.
Generally, we do not recommend that any cosmetic product be used after a “bad” sunburn or any treatment that causes extreme inflammation. The product should only be used after inflammation has subsided. For use after chemical peel or laser treatment, one should consult their physician.
Ingredients in SUPREME LX Regenerating Cream and SUPREME LX Regenerating Eye Cream have been shown to be safe for use by all women. Safety studies of cosmetics are not conducted on pregnant women. Whether to use or not use this product should be discussed by the patient and her doctor.
