spark the sense​s at in-cosmetics Global 2024

This world can be a busy, challenging place. The pressures we bear, and the different concerns we must deal with, can show themselves through our face, hair and skin.

It’s time to restore the balance of wellbeing and self-confidence by owning the skin and hair that we want to have, rather than just reflecting how the world makes us feel.

The best way to achieve this is to spark the senses.

When our senses are invigorated, we can start to reawaken a deeper appreciation of ourselves and our world through the way we feel and project ourselves.

Skin Care

Discover a new life for your skin with ETERWELL™ YOUTH, unlock your skin’s longevity with SYN-UP® and prioritize your health and well-being with our AROMActive range.


With time and exposure to life’s stressors, the natural skin renewal processes wanes triggering inefficiencies and damages at cellular level, resulting in an unhealthy-look.

In this context, unproductive cells, which can no longer produce Collagen, are no longer naturally removed, but remain (like zombies) and clutter the environment, inducing the appearance of skin damage and premature aging.

ETERWELL™ YOUTH is the holistic solution for healthy looking skin, it selectively removes the dermo-destructive senescence cells, addressing the root causes of premature aging.


Over time external stressors can have a major impact on overall skin balance, triggering multiple damages and affecting skin functionality.

As a results skin becomes more fragile, dry and prone to sensitization, loses its vitality and firmness…in short looks unhealthy. SYN-UP® is the peptide ingredient for multiple skin benefits across skin layers. The key to unlock skin’s own true potential from within.

By rebalancing Plasmin levels, this smart dipeptide improves the barrier functionality, combats skin dryness, sensitivity and redness, protects collagen against degradation and promotes an even skin tone to leave skin looking smoother and firmer.


Consumers prioritize health and well-being and are looking for products with efficient natural, organic ingredients; they also believe in the healing and mood boosting properties of essential oils.
