The Luxurious Skincare Ingredient that Will Change Your Skin

Peering inside your pantry and taking a look the latest superstars of the superfood world has often provided insight into the future of skincare ingredients. From turmeric to truffles, skincare scientists are constantly unlocking the skin benefits that can be found in nature. Game-changing skincare pioneer Estée Lauder is no stranger to this trend. Since launching the luxurious Re-Nutriv line in 1956 Estée Lauder has scoured the globe in search of the Mother Earth’s most precious ingredients. We take a closer look at Black Diamond Truffle, the one-of-a-kind star ingredient in Estee Lauder’s most luxurious skincare collection, Re-Nutriv Ultimate Diamond.

What is Black Diamond Truffle?

In the foodie scene, the rare Black Diamond Truffle is sought after for its unique, complex fragrance. The hard-to-find truffles only grow on oak and hazelnut roots and have an unpredictable season – in fact, they’re only harvested once a year in certain regions of France.  While just the tiniest slither of a Black Diamond Truffle is said to have the power to transform the flavour of a dish entirely, there’s much more to this coveted culinary star than meets the eye as EstĂ©e Lauder has discovered.

Drawing on the knowledge that truffles have long been revered for their aphrodisiac and therapeutic properties, Estée Lauder skincare scientists went about unlocking the precious truffle’s skin benefits. By harmoniously combining the best of nature and science, Estée Lauder has created a potent concentrated Black Diamond Truffle extract – the hero ingredient of the Re-Nutriv Ultimate Diamond Collection.

Harnessing the remarkable properties of the skin-changing star ingredient of the Re-Nutriv range is an impressive process in itself. It takes around 10 to 15 kilograms of raw Black Diamond Truffle to yield one kilogram of pure extract that is used in the luxurious skincare collection, while the entire process to produce each prized drop of the extract takes an extraordinary 10,000 hours. 

How will it change my skin?

As we age the cells in our body aren’t able to repair themselves as quickly – our skin is no exception. As a result, fine lines and wrinkles start to appear, pigmentation becomes more apparent, skin becomes thinner, loses its elasticity and our complexion can become drier. The powerful Black Diamond Truffle extract in EstĂ©e Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultimate Diamond Collection helps skin fight back against the ageing process. Over time the extract stimulates and increases the skin’s natural energy, boosting skin cell’s ability to protect itself against the ageing process.  Advanced testing by the EstĂ©e Lauder research team has also revealed the extracts remarkable ability to reduce excess melanin production to help improve skin tone. The overall end result is healthy, resilient, younger-looking skin.

The Re-Nutriv Diamond collection by Estée Lauder is available now at select Estée Lauder counters nationwide.
