NUMBER 6 is the active ingredient that will revive the complexion by reducing dark circles and puffiness.

Our in vitro and clinical studies show that NUMBER 6 acts, on the one hand, on the microcirculation in the fragile, eye contour area and regulates pigmentation to reduce dark circles. On the other hand, it also reduces the fatty deposits at the origin of the eyebags.
NUMBER 6 also makes the skin complexion brighter !

It is an aqueous active ingredient, extracted from avocados sourced in Peru. 
NUMBER 6 is the result of our "zero waste" philosophy. At Laboratoires Expanscience, 100% of the avocado is used: the entire fruit (skin, pulp and stone) is sliced, dehydrated and then pressed!
NUMBER 6 is our 6th ingredient upcycled from avocados: on the one hand, we only source avocados deemed unsuitable for the food industry, and on the other hand, we use our avocado cake, a by-product of the pressing of our oils, used in our pharmaceutical process.
We are thus able to develop 6 cosmetic ingredients from the same source.

NUMBER 6 is obtained by propanediol/water extraction, a COSMOS-approved process that concentrates the polyphenols in the avocado cake.

NUMBER 6 is certified ERI 360, the independent label that evaluates the eco-socio responsibility of cosmetic ingredients!
