La Prairie, a story of cutting edge luxury and perfection


La Prairie has an amazing heritage to the famous Clinique La Prairie at Montreux in Switzerland. This heritage consists by being pioneer  in terms of  Cellular research and anti-aging therapy. In 1978, La Prairie skincare story starts with the launch of the Eye contour cream, the brand first “it” cream.


Thanks to the tremendous success, the skincare laboratories were created in 1982 and its independent scientists discovered amazing ingredients since then. Some of them were very rare and beneficial so they integrated them into La Prairie formulas. This is what La Prairie says about its prestigious history: “La Prairie’s unique combination of advanced science, sumptuous formulas and the fastidious attention to the details of luxury have created a prestige brand that is often imitated but never surpassed. It constantly pushes the limits of anti-aging possibilities with never-before seen benefits.”


During decades, La Prairie developed continuously different product ranges and discovered amazing ingredients that would blow your mind in terms of efficiency and luxury. Never a brand invested so much to find the perfect balance between pure luxury, exclusivity and skincare efficiency.  One great example would be the Skin Caviar collection that became a benchmark in terms of prestige.


The Platinum Collection, rare and precious

Among different collections in the Swiss brand portfolio, there is the Platinum collection. It is supposed to be the ultimate rejuvenating skincare collection. The main key ingredient is Platinum from the earth’s molten crust. one of earth’s rarest resources recharges skin’s electrical balance and safeguards skin to intercept ageing at its source. Here is a short video illustrating the philosophy of this skincare collection.

Platinum is one of the rarest material in the world. It is a very high valued precious-metal and it gives the inspiration for the creation of this La Prairie collection.  According to La Prairie: “driven by its mission to provide age-defying benefits to the skin, scientists at La Prairie discovered that Platinum helps the skin maintain perfect electrical balance in order to improve hydration, protection, and receptivity to nutrients, transforming the skin to a remarkably ageless state.”


The interesting thing about Platinum is that it tends to work in synergy with peptides, vitamins, antioxidants or firming agents. This makes Platinum a great ingredient for a cosmetic product.  The current range is composed with:


Cellular Cream Platinum Rare, 30 ml
Cellular Cream Platinum Rare, 50 ml

Cellular Serum Platinum Rare, 30 ml

Cellular Eye Cream Platinum Rare, 20 ml

With a price range from CHF 432 (US$ 477) to CHF 1380  (US$ 1524), the Platinum collection is definitely one of the top luxury ranges currently in the market.

The new Eye treatment is a state of the art in terms of skincare formulation. It contains a series of hand picked elements bringing to your skin the best that nature and science can offer.  The key element is a powerful Platinum peptide. It is a compound based on platinum particles bonded with an age-fighting Tetrapeptide to help enhance firmness, reduce the appearance of wrinkles in the eye area and improve skin elasticity and hydration.  la prairie scientists discovered that this binding of platinum particles to Acetyl Tetrapeptide-17, an anti-wrinkle and firming peptide not only enhances protective benefits but allows the formed Platinum Peptide to be protected from peptide-destroying enzymes that exist naturally in the epidermis, allowing it to work more effectively and longer.

Other interesting ingredients and properties you will find in this incredible product are the following:
