Since its debut 6 months ago, Crème De La Crème (CDLC) has already established a huge cult following for its artisanal ice-cream and iconic petits gateaux.  Now, CDLC is pleased to announce its latest offering – the first-ever ‘beauty’ ice cream in the world!

A collaboration with Dr Steve Chia, Medical Director of Sliq Clinic, a lifestyle aesthetic clinic, this sugar-free treat, aptly named ”Beauty Elixir” contains lychee, sakura, rose water, glutathione, collagen and vitamin C. Studies have shown that these ingredients promote healthier and fairer skin, brighter and smoother skin tones and improvement of general well-being.  Glutathione, an antioxidant, has years of research behind it. It is clinically proven to be effective, allergy-free and helps to even out skin tone and brighten skin to give it a desirable afterglow.

Vitamin C neutralises free radicals, boosts the immune system and detoxifies the body. It promotes skin lightening by converting melanin to a lighter colour and inhibits the production of the enzyme tyrosinase, which produces melanin pigment. Glutathione is highly synergistic with Vitamin C to give the best skin whitening results.

Many studies have shown that collagen is extremely important in health care, especially the ability to prevent the ageing of the body. Collagen enhances metabolism, connects tissues, improves the elasticity of skin, reduces wrinkles, and increases smoothness and firmness of skin. It also restores damaged skin by acne and helps to improve blemishes, freckles, scars and brightness of skin.

Cherry blossom (Sakura) is known for its rich antioxidant levels, anti-inflammatory, anti-ageing, whitening and soothing properties. Rich in essential fatty acids, it repairs the skin’s natural barriers to lighten uneven pigmentation, promote suppleness, brightening and smoothness of skin.

Lychee is a rich source of antioxidants, Vitamin C, Vitamin B-complex, fibre and phytonutrient flavonoids which are effective in preventing early ageing and offers protection from free radicals and oxidative stress.

Thus, Beauty Elixir is the first dessert of its kind that combines skin health benefits with gastronomical pleasure, all in one scoop of great tasting ice-cream. It’s an absolute must-try for both beauty and ice-cream lovers.
