CLARINS helped to revolutionise the world of fragrance when it created its award-winning Eau Dynamisante - the first eau de toilette to unite the fragrance and treatment benefits of plants to perfume and also to moisturise, soften and energise the body.

The range has been developed from just eau de toilette to include shower mousse, body lotion, and natural spray deodorant, which both offer clients the same dual benefits of fragrance and skin care, based on natural plant extracts.

Its extended line, Eau Dynamisante Eau de Toilette, perfumes, moisturises, refreshes, and softens the skin, and is said to firm, tone, and revitalise, and promote a feeling of well-being and relaxation.

It is based on 100 per cent natural plant extracts, with fragrance and treatment benefits, including aloe to moisturise, isphagul to moisturise and soften, horsetail to firm, ginseng to invigorate, ginger to tone and energise, and cardamom, cinnamon, lavender, patchouli, lemon, orange, thyme, and rosemary to tone.

It should be splashed all over the body in the morning, before, or after sport, before going out, and at the slightest sign of fatigue or stress.

Eau Dynamisante shower mousse is said to cleanse skin gently, neutralising the effects of hard water, leaving the skin supple and soft, and promote a feeling of freshness and dynamic well-being.

It is formulated in the same way as dermatological cleansing bars, has foaming properties, and - for environmentalists - is ozone friendly, featuring a natural spray presentation.

Ingredients include a vegetable cleaning base of soapwort extract, a natural foaming agent, aloe and isphagul extracts, to moisturise skin, and ginseng, to promote dynamic well being.

It also contains a filmogenic agent, which leaves a smooth, non-oily and protective film on the skin.

Before use, it should be shaken, and then applied to damp skin from top to toe. It is suitable for men, women, and children, and comes in a 150-millilitre spray bottle.

The Natural spray deodorant, also scented with Eau Dynamisante, prevents and neutralises perspiration odour throughout the day.

The moisturising body lotion delicately fragrances the skin with the woody, citrus, and chypre notes of Eau Dynamisante, making an ideal base for the Eau de Toilette.

It contains isphagul, olive oil extract, honey and ginseng, and helps maintain skin hydration and enhances vitality.

It is recommended for people living in hot and humid climates, because it is such a light-textured product. That makes it ideal for Hong Kong.
