Since the 1930s, luminous skin has captivated and inspired painters, photographers and film producers alike, using light alone to reveal the beauty of the skin. In its pursuit of luminous skin, Fujifilm is to launch the Astalift skincare range into the Europe, starting from March 2012. Astalift is a premium anti-ageing skincare brand developed using cutting edge, core technologies accumulated over 70 years of research and development. These technologies include the findings of Fujifilm’s own collagen research, antioxidation expertise and micronization technology. Collagen is not only the essential ingredient within photographic film; it is a key component of the skin. Antioxidants prevent images from fading in colour and repair and protect the skin from UV damage.  Fujifilm has applied this knowledge to skincare and developed the most unique of technologies to prevent UV rays from weakening both collagen and elastin within the skin.

A revolutionary scientific breakthrough

The Astalift anti-ageing skincare brand has been developed using Fujifilm’s specialist technological background and expertise in collagen, antioxidants and micronization to rediscover skin’s youthful radiance. 

A scientific breakthrough in anti-ageing skincare, Astalift combines its unique technological expertise in skin with advanced molecular research and patented innovation to become the specialists in collagen and antioxidants. Advanced, patented formulations that work deep into the layers of the skin to prevent the visible signs of ageing, providing optimum hydration and helping skin regain its firmness and luminosity. 

To combat ageing effects, Astalift’s patented formula harnesses the unparalleled power of Astaxanthin – a repairing and protective natural antioxidant extracted from algae – with a blend of different types of collagen to improve skin’s moisture levels, firmness and elasticity. Fujifilm has applied their advanced knowledge of micronization technology to enable rapid absorption of active ingredients quicker and deeper into the skin. The combination of these technologies makes Astalift unique in its anti-ageing ability. 


A major discovery: The power of Astaxanthin

It’s like nothing used before, a natural anti-oxidant that is 1000 times more powerful than both vitamin E and CO Q10. Astaxanthin is a super ingredient, identified and made viable by Fujifilm for skincare use through many years of research. This extensive knowledge stems from a database of over 4000 antioxidants, Astaxanthin has been found to be incredibly beneficial to the skin structure. Astaxanthin is both a protective and defensive ingredient that is proven to help counteract the effects of oxidation on the skin: wrinkles, sagging, age spots, it also helps repair the cutaneous barrier to help prevent moisture loss. 

So why isn’t this remarkable ingredient used by others in skincare? While Astaxanthin is well known as an extremely effective antioxidant, it’s also particularly difficult to incorporate within products while also preserving its highly beneficial effects. Fujifilm has applied its expertise in micronization to convert Astaxanthin into micro particles, enabling it to absorb deeper within the skin while maintaining its effectiveness.

Specialist Research: Collagen

The Astalift range contains a blend of collagens to help supply and nurture skin. Scientists at Fujifilm have been using collagen in film since 1934. Astalift is comprised of soluble, permeable and pico-collagen, and combined together they help retain moisture while penetrating deep down to encourage collagen production. 

Patented innovation: Micronization technology

Following decades of research and development, The Fujifilm Beauty & Health Laboratory has mastered ‘infinitesimal’ technology. This advanced innovation has led to the development of skincare formulas based on patented micronised active ingredients that rapidly enter the layers of the epidermis to deliver their targeted anti-ageing action.

A skincare revolution: Jelly Aquarysta 

Astaxanthin is the ingredient that makes Astalift an extraordinary concept. Found in marine algae and naturally red in colour, it gives Aquarysta Jelly its distinctive colour and the skincare range a soft coral hue. The extraordinary red jelly contains the smallest of micro particles that penetrate the skin immediately and deliver active ingredients deep into skin cells.

As skin ages, its ability to retain moisture decreases and the production of ceramide molecules slows down. Through extensive scientific research, Astalift has developed a highly concentrated ceramide formula using the smallest particles available in skincare today at over five times smaller than conventional ceramide particles.

Combining Japanese technology with this breakthrough ingredient, Astalift Jelly Aquarysta targets the visible signs of premature ageing, dark spots, lines and dull skin. Ceramides restore the skin’s natural barrier while emollients provide optimal hydration. Collagen and hydrolysed lupin peptides help stimulate the production of elastin fibres to help deliver visibly younger, more luminous ‘replumped’ skin. 

Application is simple. Take a pearl of the Jelly Aquarysta and use after cleansing to see visible results. After 28 days of use, skin appears more luminous for 95% of volunteers.* The remarkable micronization technology used within the Jelly means that it resurfaces before the eyes and 90 seconds after use, the Jelly appears level, smooth and crystal clear again. A skincare revolution to reveal skin’s inner light.
