Our face: its expressions help us communicate with the world.

The product is the first in the Barcelona, Spain-based company’s history to warrant a patent application. “For Natura Bissé, this is like the iPod was for Apple,” according to the company’s U.S. subsidiary CEO, Gerardo Gomez. The powerful, ground-breaking night treatment helps regulate ‘skin age biomarkers,’ which have been shown to prolong the lifespan of skin cells and slow the aging process. In a recent study involving 20 participants, the product helped increase the renewal and regeneration of skin, as well as diminish fine lines, wrinkles and roughness, correct dryness, restore even skin tone and increase collagen—resulting in rejuvenating the skin an average of 3.9 years! Diamond Life Infusion will be available exclusively at Neiman Marcus ($590 for the 0.8-ounce crystal jar) beginning Oct. 1, and will debut worldwide in March 2013.
