Lancome Introduces Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector

A new vision of skin perfection by Lancôme


Truly modern skincare is defined by how well it adapts to women’s lifestyles and high expectations. The product must be simple to use but it has to effect dramatic change. And, of course, it must feel luxurious on the skin and look gorgeous on the vanity table. Lancôme is conscious of these demands when formulating its skincare breakthroughs and this fast-acting new serum is no exception.

Introducing Visionnaire [LR 2412 4%] Advanced Skin Corrector, Lancôme’s first skincare product formulated to recreate the look of beautiful skin by correcting the appearance of wrinkles, pores and texture. In development for 12 years and with 20 international patents protecting it, Visionnaire represents the next generation of Lancôme skincare—and Lancôme’s first skincare product formulated to recreate more beautiful skin. Visionnaire radically improves the appearance of wrinkles, pores and texture, leaving skin visibly transformed. It’s a skin corrector so powerful that one out of two women decided to postpone a cosmetic procedure after using it for four weeks.*



At the heart of Visionnaire is LR 2412, a new molecule inspired by nature that propels through various skin layers and on its path, triggers a cascading series of chain reactions that help enhance the skin’s natural self-renewal process.**



Historically, Lancôme’s researchers have been interested in the processes that the plant world uses to repair itself. Topping the list of research objectives is identifying new substances that would inspire new ways to actively treat the skin.

During this research, which spanned 12 years, our researchers were especially interested in how plants behave when injured. When plants are damaged they produce a “signal molecule” called jasmonic acid. Within plants, it is this signal-molecule that triggers the action of repair and defense mechanisms and which serves to make them more resistant. Lancôme’s research challenge, then, was to duplicate jasmonic acid’s ability to affect cell turnover in a compound that’s in perfect affinity with human skin. Our labs created and studied around 20 derivatives of this substance over a period of 12 years. Out of these studies, the molecule identified as LR 2412 was born.



LR 2412 is a ground-breaking new molecule. First, it is a small size and of amphiphilic nature, allowing it to merge with both aqueous and lipid skin structures. This unique characteristic makes this molecule four times more bio-available than a lipophilic molecule such as retinol. It also serves to make it tolerant for all skin types, including sensitive skin. Lancôme is so proud of its new molecule that it was unveiled at the World Congress of Dermatology in Seoul, Korea in May 2011, to rave reviews.


LR 2412 powers Visionnaire into a one-stop-shop for beautiful skin. Lancôme put Visionnaire through a comprehensive test program on a total of 800 women. This clinical study was carried out on diverse ethnicities (Hispanic, Caucasian, Asian and African American) against three skin criteria: wrinkles, pores and surface imperfections.

Additionally, Visionnaire was used in a four-week self assessment study that concluded this radical result: One out of two women who were tempted by a cosmetic procedure—injections, hyaluronic acid fillers, laser treatments and chemical peeling—opted to postpone it after seeing the transformation in their skin.*



Visionnaire [LR 2412 4%] can be used morning and night as the first step in a corrective skincare routine. Its silky texture allows it to glide smoothly over skin and easily be topped by makeup. Visionnaire is very well tolerated and can be used all year round, even in the summer.


*After 4 weeks of use. Consumer evaluation of women aged 35 to 49 years tempted by hyaluronic acid, laser or chemical peeling. Results not equivalent to a cosmetic procedure.
**Based on in-vitro testing

    Being in my 40s, I am wondering if I should use this skin corrector because I currently use SK II for all my skincare needs but never even heard of this. If you have this, can you do a review so I can see what you feel as an opinion?
