In this article we will introduce the Parisian Brand Laboratoires Filorga, leading provider of anti-ageing solutions, and some of its bestsellers.
Filorga was created in 1978 by Michel Tordjman, a French doctor of aesthetic medicine specialized on skin ageing. He developed anti-ageing mesotherapy products (mesotherapy is a non-surgical technique that uses micro-injections of pharmaceutical preparations). The most famous one is NCTF, an anti-ageing solution that acts on the 6 key parameters of skin quality (hydration, wrinkles, firmness, radiance, evenness and pores), which is a leading product used in mesotherapy treatments all over the world.
Besides the mesotherapy injections used by doctors, Filorga launched in 2007 their first cosmetics for the general public, but direct inspired by aesthetic medicine. The laboratory developed an encapsulated compound of active ingredients for profound skin penetration, NCEF (New Cellular Encapsulated Factors). NCEF contains Hyaluronic acid and 50 other ingredients such as vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids… that work in synergy and penetrate each levels of the skin.
The Laboratoires Filorga skincare collection comprises a lot of different products and ranges, and many of them are already iconic best-sellers.
Meso-Mask and Time-Filler are the most famous products of the brand among the customers worldwide. Meso Mask a must-have French skincare product. Rich in collagen and elastin, this mask moisturizes, increases skin density, and smoothes wrinkles. After using, the complexion is even, luminous and radiant. Put it on your face about 15 minutes, remove with a wet cotton pad. This cream can be used as a night mask.

We already mentioned NCEF, Filorga's exclusive complex containing revitalising and anti-ageing ingredients (vitamins, co-enzymes, anti-oxidants, amino acids, minerals, etc.), which is derived from aesthetic medicine. NCEF Intensive and NCEF Reverse both have a very high concentration in NCEF complex. NCEF Intensive is a multi-correction Serum, with an ultra-light texture that suits normal to dry skins. It boosts youth correction and skin regeneration, correcting wrinkles, firmness and radiance. To increase the penetration of the Serum, you can prepare your skin with NCEF Essence (the penetration of the Serum can be five times higher after using the essence).
NCEF Reverse is a cream to improve skin quality and reduce the appearance of the signs of aging. The cream contains the best age-defying ingredients (hyaluronic acid, collagen, vitamins A, H and E…), that act to visibly improve the appearance of wrinkles, skin elasticity and complexion radiance.

Hydra-Hyal is an intensive hydrating plumping concentrate, which hydrates the skin immediately from within and restores radiance and suppleness. It contains 4 types of hyaluronic acids to coat the skin. You can apply it daily, before your cream.
Last but not least, we are going to introduce a cleanser / Make up Remover, the Micellar Solution. Makeup removal is a mandatory step of daily skin care ritual, as it washes away cosmetics, impurities and dirt from the surface of your skin: it lets your skin breathe and promotes cellular renewal by eliminating dead skin.
This Filorga Micellar Solution is enriched with moisturizing and soothing ingredients. Apply it using a cotton pad before your daily treatments.
When to start using anti-aging product is a very frequent question asked to skin experts. The answer will always be different from one person to another, as our skins are all different and can age quicker or slower. But what is sure is that the sooner you start using anti-aging products, less damage will be done to your skin and the less likely you are to develop wrinkles. So anti-aging products can be incorporated into a daily routine as early as in the 20s. But don’t forget that the most important thing is to use anti-aging products that are appropriate for your skin type, so it is always better to ask for Pharmacist advices. If you have a chance to come to France, don’t forget to visit Parapharmacy Monge, to get advices from experts and buy the Filorga products you need.
