We are all aware that what we eat affects our health, our vitality, and the appearance of our bodies, but increasingly, we are seeing that it also alters the look of our faces. Nutraceuticals have hit the mainstream, and are becoming a part of the savvy person’s beauty regimen.
Abili Falcó i Buixeda, who was born in a town on the Mediterranean—where they know a thing or two about ingesting ingredients that keep you healthy—was CEO of Spain’s largest food-distribution company before deciding to target the skin instead of the palate. He focused on finding ingredients with maximum nutritional value and, after years of research, created Aethern, a daily drinkable power-packed shot.
“From my first contacts with the world of food, many years ago, I understood the critical role that food played, as a supplier of the essential nutrients (proteins, vitamins, etc.) to develop a healthy, sustainable and balanced lifestyle,” he explains. “I also understood the difficulty in obtaining all of these essential nutrients only through food, however healthy and balanced it may be. Hence, the need for supplementation, using super-concentrated extracts of these nutrients.”
Falcó i Buixeda feels that these nutraceuticals were beauty’s missing link. “They complete the antiaging circle and are of critical importance,” he stresses. “Topical products, serum, creams, etc., are excellent, but they work on the surface of the face, neck, eyes and hands to improve the aesthetic appearance. This product works from the inside, and for the whole body, preventing the wear and tear of aging, regenerating from the deepest part of the body, and causing cell regeneration through the ingestion of the essential nutrients that make up our body. By absorbing nutrients in this manner, the results are sustainable, and delay the internal chronological clock of aging.”
Aethern, which contains a potent blend of collagen and hyaluronic acid along with antioxidants, astaxanthin, beta carotene, zinc, selenium, magnesium, vitamin E, lutein, silicon, Mediterranean polyphenols and bioactive peptides, has been formulated to increase hydration, reduce wrinkles and impart radiance. It’s only sold via doctors and medical spas and results are generally visible starting at eight weeks. Cate Blanchett, who discovered Aethern through her dermatologist, has become a fan. According to Falcó i Buixeda: “It’s an all-in-one skin antiaging blend.” aethern.com
