Achieve flash beauty results with Comfort Zone's ampoule collection
Instant radiance, immediate lifting and intense renewal for face and eyes
Comfort Zone’s ampoule collection offers visible, clinically-proven results. Now, the range has been expanded with the Renight Bright & Smooth Ampoule.

Thanks to a smart delivery technology and highly concentrated active ingredients – including retinol, plant-based epidermal growth factor and niacinamide – the new ampoules' powerful formula acts quickly on and penetrates deeply into the skin, delivering flash beauty results.

Easy to apply and fast-absorbing, the ampoules can be used on their own, before make-up or added as a boost before serums and creams. 

Clinically proven as effective after just one application, they can also be used in cycles for a week or 15 days, to ensure a more intensive, targeted action.

The clean, conscious formula contains a high percentage of natural-origin ingredients, is vegan-friendly and also free from raw materials that may have a negative impact on the environment, such as ethoxylates, silicones, mineral oil, artificial dyes and sulphates.​

The same attention to sustainability is paid to packaging and production: the product is packaged using glass and FSC certified recycled paper. These materials are also carbon offset thanks to reforestation and social regeneration projects.

As of 2022, Comfort Zone products are 100 per cent certified plastic neutral. For every product sold, an equal amount of ocean-bound plastic is collected and removed from the environment through collaboration with Plastic Bank.

Comfort Zone: Davines Group and Rodale Institute launch a new partnership to sustain regenerative agriculture
The Comfort Zone - Davines Group and Rodale Institute have partnered to create the first International Regenerative Organic Research & Education Center in Parma, Italy.

This new project will serve as a hub for research and regenerative farmer training, while also expanding the sustainable beauty brands’ supply of regenerative organic ingredients and sustainability research.

10 acres have been set aside for the Davines Group, Rodale Institute European Regenerative Organic Center close to the Davines Group Village – the company’s production site in Parma, Italy.

The location will mark the first international destination by the Rodale Institute, a leader of the regenerative organic movement since 1947 and the organisation responsible for coining the term ‘regenerative organic’ to distinguish a kind of farming that goes beyond sustainable.

Regenerative organic farming is particularly interesting because it promotes biodiversity, protects our soil, air, and water and has the specific potential to sequester carbon, mitigating climate change.

“A new paradigm of economic and demographic growth is only possible if the Earth’s ecology is preserved and enhanced,” says Davide Bollati, Comfort Zone and Davines chair.

“We have been doing our part throughout the years with humility and dedication for the cause.

"Partnering now with Rodale Institute – a true kindred spirit and dynamic pioneer of this regenerative vision – is a collaborative way to take greater steps on our journey to making the world a more beautiful place through beauty, ethics, and sustainability.

“We want our partnership to positively impact our product development and supply chain, but also to serve as a catalyst for change that will animate sustainability studies and regenerative organic farming in Europe.”

The new European Regenerative Organic Center will focus its research and education on small- to mid-size European farms growing speciality crops for food, nutrition, and beauty.

Supporting farmers in the region, this Center will focus on organic management in a Mediterranean climate, as well as the close relationship between personal care ingredients and farming.

“Since our founding in the 1940s, Rodale Institute has supported organic farmers and their communities,” said Jeff Moyer, Rodale Institute CEO.

“Today, we’re honoured to have the opportunity to partner with Davines to support farmers in Italy and beyond.

"We’re thrilled to partner to achieve their vision – a world where organic food is transparent and healing the planet, and consumers can embrace a regenerative organic lifestyle in their personal products as well.”

Davines Group has already led the way in the relationship between food, farming, and personal care through the sourcing of ingredients from regenerative agriculture for Comfort Zone Sacred Nature– the Cosmos certified organic line – and Sublime Skin, the anti-ageing range for a natural filler effect.

Innovative studies on cell senescence inspire Comfort Zone’s new approach to anti-ageing
With the relaunch of Sublime Skin, the Comfort Zone R&R team has further deepened its knowledge of skin ageing mechanisms in order to offer even more complete and effective cosmetic solutions.

The innovation relates to the study and treatment of cellular senescence, a critical phenomenon that accompanies skin ageing and affects all cells and all skin layers, globally and progressively compromising skin vitality and functionality.

Research has found that when cells age and reach the senescence stage, they don’t simply stop stimulating growth factors. Instead, they also release harmful substances, known as SASPs (senescence-associated secretory phenotypes), inflammatory molecules that attack neighbouring cells, causing them to enter a state of premature senescence.

This triggers a chain reaction in the skin’s layers that causes and aggravates wrinkles, dryness and a visible loss of tone.

More specifically, inflammatory molecules (SASPs) in the epidermis alter the turnover causing weakening of the barrier function and a greater water loss.

In the dermis, they compromise the fibroblasts, reducing collagen and elastin production and they cause an increase in metalloproteinases, the enzymes that degrade collagen and elastin, damaging the skin, which becomes less firm and elastic.

In the hypodermis the secretion of inflammatory SASP molecules also reduces adipogenesis, leading to less lipid accumulation, which explains the loss of tissue volume observed with age.

In order to counteract cellular senescence, Comfort Zone has selected Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 for the new Sublime Skin Intensive Serum.

This high tech ingredient reduces the presence of SASPs by 55 per cent and therefore weakens the degeneration caused by senescent cells. Furthermore, the compound blocks the skin neurotransmitter responsible for facial expression, inhibiting muscle contraction and reducing wrinkles and expression lines.

Comfort Zone has prevented 100 tons of plastic from entering the ocean in 2021
In line with its pioneering path to produce products that are good for both people and for the planet, Comfort Zone, the Italian skincare brand for spa professionals, has partnered with Plastic Bank to prevent 100 tons of plastic from invading the oceans in Indonesia, Brazil and the Philippines, while improving the quality of life of local communities involved in collecting plastic.

“Our collaboration with Plastic Bank represents a new step forward in our ongoing path of sustainability and regeneration,” said Davide Bollati, chair of Comfort Zone.

“It’s become obvious that the only way to accelerate the needed transformation from the current socio-economic extractive model towards a new regenerative paradigm – a transformation that can no longer be postponed – is that of creating multilateral alliances and coalitions working together to reach that objective.”

Plastic Bank builds ethical recycling ecosystems and reprocessing materials for reintroduction into the global supply chain.

Local collectors exchange their plastic waste for premiums which help provide basic family necessities such as groceries, cooking fuel, school tuition, and health insurance.

The collected material is then reborn as Social Plastic which can be easily reintegrated into products and packaging as part of a closed-loop supply chain.

"We're excited to partner with Comfort Zone and the Davines Group- a company that shares our vision on creating environmental, social, and economic impact," said David Katz, founder and CEO of Plastic Bank.

"Our partnership represents a unique opportunity to reveal the value of plastic and make a direct impact in the effort to stop ocean plastic."

Skin Regimen’s new Recharging Mist protects skin from blue light
Due to the pandemic, working from home and huge amounts of screen time have become the new normal.

This habit has led our skin to face a new potentially harmful element: blue light, also known as High Energy Visible Light (HEV).

Blue light has a slightly shorter wavelength than ultraviolet light (UV) and is known to cause wrinkles and skin laxity, dehydration, dullness and brown spots.

It’s also been proven to contribute to skin ageing caused by the generation of free radicals known to trigger oxidative damage.

The best way to prevent further skin damage from exposure to blue light from screens is the same as preventing skin damage in general: wearing sunscreen.

As everyone may not want to wear sunscreen indoors, Skin Regimen has introduced the Recharging Mist, a protective, antioxidant and moisturising mist that instantly hydrates and refreshes stressed skin.

The mist relies on the brand’s signature Longevity Complex to reduce inflammation and counter oxidation, while its Biotech Fermented Extract is also included to protect and shield skin from blue light damage throughout the day.

“Unlike the sun, screens emitting blue light are much closer to your face, meaning blue light can penetrate deeper into the skin, leading to fine lines, dark spots and wrinkles, as well as premature ageing,” explained Barbara Gavazzoli, communication and education director at Comfort Zone.

“The skin needs to be protected from blue light because although the damage won’t be immediately visible, it will definitely cause undesired signs of ageing.”

Formulated with 99.2 per cent ingredients of natural origin and an uplifting aroma of rose and lavender, the mist can be used over makeup for an extra glow and reapplied throughout the day.

Davines Group celebrates International Day of Happiness with launch of new World Happiness Report
Davines Group has long been participating in the global conversation on individual and collective wellbeing and happiness.

The company not only focuses on its stakeholders’ happiness and wellbeing but engages in a constant dialogue on the value and sense of happiness at the individual and collective level, as an indicator of socio-economic development.

Davide Bollati, Davines Group chair, explained: “At Davines we perceive happiness as eudaimonia – the ancient Greek word that refers to human flourishing and prosperity.

“In Aristotle’s work, eudaimonia was used as the term for the highest human good, and so it is the aim of practical philosophy, including ethics and virtue.

“The pursuit of this kind of happiness is what inspires us every day in what we are and what we do to be the best for the world.”

With this in mind, Davines Group was motivated to partner with the World Happiness Report in 2020.

The first report was released in April 2012 as a foundational text for the United Nations (UN)N High Level Meeting: Wellbeing and Happiness: Defining a New Economic Paradigm, drawing international attention.

The first version outlined the state of world happiness, causes of happiness and misery, and policy implications highlighted by case studies.

In 2013, the second report was issued, and in 2015 the third.

Since 2016, it has been issued annually on the 20 March, to coincide with the UN's International Day of Happiness.

Over the years, the report has proved a valuable tool for governments, institutions and businesses to draw from to reflect on aspects determining the happiness of populations and, consequently, to implement strategies to promote the wellbeing of communities.

2020 has been a year like no other, and the 2021 report focuses on the effects of COVID-19 and how different countries responded, with a particular focus on happiness and wellbeing.

In the 2021 Report, authors address:

How COVID-19 affected life expectancy and wellbeing
The impact on mental health
Social connections
Work and worklessness
Living well and living long: the WELLBY approach (Wellbeing-Adjusted Life-Years)

"It’s increasingly evident the issue of world happiness must be addressed today, in order to prevent and slow down the environmental, social, economic and health crises that seem to overlap with increasing frequency,” said Bollati.

“The strong interdependence between the world’s various crises is becoming very clear. Now, a new model of sustainable development, which redefines the way human species inhabit the planet, is in more need than ever.

“Whether it’s in how the insights on the theme of happiness are applied to individuals, cities, nations, the economy and the planet, or if happiness is studied as an objective or subjective value, this theme of how man inhabits the Earth remains at the centre of the main reflection.

“My hope is that this report will help us increase global happiness, thanks to the virtuous and joint work of the public and private sectors, of academics and spiritual leaders.”

Davines Group is inviting everyone around the world to observe International Day of Happiness on 20 March and register for the 2021 report’s virtual launch event at 11 AM EST.
