"After 20 years of research, Shiseido is the first to target the skin's immunity via the Langerhans Cells" - Shiseido Canada
So what is a Langerhan Cell? They are this little adorable star shaped cell that is just hanging out in your skin. They help to defend your skin against aggressors. This little guy alerts your other cells that bad things are going to happen and they need to protect your skin. Now overtime your Langerhan cells go away, or don't work as well because of repeated UV damage.
Ultimune is NOT a serum, it is a pre-serum or "booster" step. You will use this in order to boost your skin's immunity to harmful internal and external aggressors. Ultimune does contain a light fragrance that is supposed to be calming and energizing (I feel like those two things are counter-active but oh well!).
First: The Ultimune Complex. This includes Aqua in pool, an exclusive ingredient that maintains moisture and reinforces the skins' barrier function. B-glucan, to enhance the function of Langerhan Cells and finally Bulgarian Rose Water to promote collagen production.
Second: A Botanical Cocktail of Ginkgo Biloba Leaves, Perilla and Thyme help to maintain a healthy skin surface.
Third: ImuCalm Compound of Rose and Lotus to calm and energize your skin.
Make sure to go to your local Shoppers Drug Mart that carries Shiseido as they will have some samples of this serum around for you to try out! Let me know what you think :)
Until next time,
