Comfort Zone stands for regeneration
Beauty grows from the ground up. Starting deep within the soil, beauty stems from this planet and is ours to preserve, protect and nourish.

Over the years, Comfort Zone has fully embraced sustainability and from 2022 this commitment has been taken one step further, with the new European Organic Regenerative Center (EROC), located next to the Comfort Zone Village in Parma, Italy.

Founded in partnership with the Rodale Institute, the 15 hectares dedicated to this project are a hub of regenerative organic farming for scientific research, active ingredient cultivation and education for farmers.

Comfort Zone has chosen to support regenerative organic agriculture for its contribution to climate change mitigation through the revitalisation of soil and carbon sequestration.

"Partnering with Rodale Institute ​is a great step on our regenerative journey ​to making the world a more beautiful place through beauty, ethics and sustainability,” said Davide Bollati, Davines group chair.

To further support this regenerative cause, in September, Comfort Zone will launch the We Sustain Beauty Campaign, underpinning the Rodale Institute through the partnership with 1% For the Planet.

This initiative – offered through its spa partners – will include educational opportunities, special promotions for consumers and a limited-edition ‘We stand for regeneration” kit, including travel sizes from Comfort Zone’s Sacred Nature – the brand’s Ecocert-certified collection with ingredients grown via regenerative organic agriculture.

Comfort Zone unveils 2022 Kaleidoscope Gift collection
Nature regenerates our gaze, our soul and our skin, reminding us that experiences and moments shared with those we love become even more special and unforgettable.

Celebrating nature’s regenerative wonders, Comfort Zone’s new 2022 Kaleidoscope Gift Collection is inspired by our Scientific Garden in Parma, Italy and bursting with vibrance and extraordinary images of the natural ingredients of our products.

Offering a wide range of face, body and home fragrance, each coffret has been carefully curated to respond to the different skin needs for a regenerative experience of beauty and wellbeing.

Our clinically-proven, vegan formulas feature biomimetic textures and contain high-percentages of bioactive natural ingredients.

The same attention to sustainability has been paid to the packaging and production which is 100% carbon neutralized, thanks to our reforestation and social regeneration projects.

Each box is designed to be reused, made in Italy with recycled FSC paper. All primary packagings are certified “Plastic Neutral” by Plastic Bank.

For every product sold, the same amount of plastic will be collected from the coastal areas of The Philippines, Brazil and Indonesia.

The 'Made in Italy' production takes place at the Comfort Zone Village in Parma, our carbon-neutral headquarters, which uses only renewable energy.

This holiday season, share the gift of nature’s regenerative wonders with those you love!

Comfort Zone’s new Sun soul, safe for the skin and the ocean
The new Comfort Zone Sun Soul range has been completely reformulated to be at the forefront of anti-ageing, sustainable sun care.

The conscious formulas combine specific UVA and UVB filters that are proven to be safe for both the skin and ocean thanks to innovative studies on a representative sample of aquatic organisms.

Comfort Zone Scientist Cecilia Ranieri confirms: “Our formulas contain a high percentage of biodegradable and natural-origin ingredients, plus, the special UV filters are classified as safe for the aquatic environment.*”

At the forefront of sustainable suncare

All Sun Soul products contain eco-friendly UVA and UVB filters that provide the ultimate protection for the skin and are free from oxybenzone, octocrylene and octinoxate.

Both the collection’s protective and aftersun formulas are also enriched with anti-ageing DNA-defense peptide that counteracts oxidative stress damage and supports the skin’s self-repair.

Additionally, Comfort Zone’s decision to incorporate natural microcellulose derived from spruce has made it possible to replace synthetic texture components such as acrylates resulting in a more sustainable, fast-absorbing, silky formula.

Packaging sustainably

The same attention to sustainability has also been paid to packaging, which is made from exclusively recycled and biobased plastic from sugarcane which is 100 per cent carbon offset production thanks to reforestation and social regeneration projects.

The line is also certified plastic neutral by Plastic Bank. For every Sun Soul product sold, the same amount of plastic will be collected from the coastal areas of the Philippines, Brazil or Indonesia.

Comfort Zone is also proud to state that all production takes place at the Comfort Zone Village in Parma, our carbon-neutral headquarters, which uses only renewable energy.

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.
