In 1991, Shiseido and MGH/Harvard Cutaneous Biology Research Centre began researching the skin’s own special system of immune functions. The team discovered that Langerhans cells in the epidermal layer control skin immunity; however, their effectiveness is diminished by both external and internal threats, such as air pollution, dryness, UV rays, and emotional stress.
Fast forward to the present; the newly launched Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate is the result of two decades of research and over 400 trial products. Shiseido Ultimune boosts the function of weakened Langerhans cells and reignites the skin’s inherent defensive power to protect, regenerate, and strengthen skin to fight damage on its own. Shiseido Ultimune is available in Vancouver at Hudson’s Bay.
