Caviar is best known as a luxury gourmet treat. But beauty innovators at La Prairie have been exploring what else the coveted ingredient is capable of. More than 30 years ago, the skincare brand discovered that the pearlescent black eggs contained nourishing, rejuvenating properties; since then, caviar has been a mainstay of its signature collection, with a formula refined over the decades by scientists.
For its Skin Caviar range, La Prairie sources only top-of-the-line farmed caviar from a passionate artisanal cultivator based in the Swiss Alps. The team has since developed a cutting-edge set of extracts ranging from the skin-lifting Caviar Premier to the enriching Caviar Absolute.
These two extracts collide in the brand’s signature, and recently reformulated, Skin Caviar Liquid Lift serum, designed to create a lifted appearance and reduce signs of ageing.
La Prairie’s interest in unexpected and boundary-pushing ingredients isn’t limited to luxe foodstuffs. Driven by 90 years of Swiss cellular science—culminating in the brand’s Exclusive Cellular Complex, which forms the basis of almost every La Prairie product—each product is enhanced with precious ingredients, from Swiss caviar to platinum and gold. Bridging decades of tradition and craftsmanship with an inherently modern aesthetic, the Platinum Rare, Pure Gold and White Caviar collections were born.
