PROTECTION FROM THE EXTREME
Our modern lifestyle constantly exposes the skin to environmental stressors such as: UV radiation, pollution and other toxins. Perfected over decades of research and development, this highly advanced formula restores skin that is stressed, dulled, and dried by lifestyle and environmental factors. Phormula 3-9 is a direct reflection of the deep, unabiding belief that we can elicit the skin’s natural beauty response when we properly honor the miracle that it is. By sealing technologically advanced ingredients within a ‘health dome’ 3-9 acts as a second skin and provides intense oxygenation and thorough re-hydration.
THE UNTOLD STORY OF PHORMULA 3-9
It is Erno Laszlo’s masterpiece, one of the original formulas developed by Dr. Laszlo and relentlessly improved over time. A total of eight iterations were created between 1917 and 1973 specifically for the following muses: Princess Stephanie, Frida Gombaszögi (early Hungarian actress), Greta Garbo, Lillian Gish, The Duchess of Windsor, Hubert De Givenchy, Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe respectively (a version of the Phormula was created for Marilyn to treat her post-surgical abdominal scar tissue).
The current and ninth iteration was discovered inadvertently in 2001 by a researcher sorting through the doctor’s personal archives. Nearly 30 years had passed since Dr. Laszlo penned the original formulation, and it was anticipated that it might require updating. What was discovered, however, was that the transcript Dr. Laszlo left behind was already a high-tech hybrid, and only small alterations were made in the formula to capitalize on some of the newest breakthroughs in anti-aging actives.
The exact formula for 3-9 is a closely guarded secret. It contains a blend of rich, powerful and time honored ingredients, such as raspberry stem cells- which repair and increase the antioxidant function in human DNA and extend cell longevity. A few of the key plant derived oils include Tacamahca Seed Oil, a healing oil from sacred trees in the South Pacific; Chaulmoogra Oil, a natural antibacterial agent derived from a tree in East India and Aleurites Fordi Oil, an extracted oil that’s derived from a genus that includes mustard, cabbage and broccoli.
