The multi-benefit Biosome5 technology, Jurlique’s first natural liposome, delivers five plant actives – horseradish, mulberry root, rosemary leaf extract, peppermint leaf extract and glycogen – to target the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles, promotes smoother skin and reduces the appearance of sagging skin.


RESCU spoke to David Scown, director of technical development at Jurlique International about what Biosome5 is and how it’s different to other liposomes on the market.

“It is the patent pending, Biosome5 liposome delivery technology that contains five powerful age-fighting ingredients encapsulated in a trans-dermal delivery system,” David said.

“Biosome5 is different because we have been able to harmonise and stabilise these specially selected ingredients to work synergistically together in a liposome. This allows them to act deeply in the layers of skin; producing astounding results on the advanced signs of skin ageing.”

When asked why the specific ingredients been chosen, David said, “Individually they are effective – together they are amazing. We have looked at the symptoms of ageing on an individual basis and selected ingredients that produce results on many of these signs of ageing simultaneously. A number of years of plant research and formulation development has culminated in the creation of the Nutri-Define range.”

The Jurlique Nutri-Define Multi-Correcting Day Cream help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other visible signs of ageing to revitalise and smooth the skin, while the Jurlique Nutri-Define Rejuvenating Overnight Cream is an intensely rich multi-tasking overnight treatment with Biosome5, Cupuacu Seed Butter and Artichoke Leaf Extract to help skin feel firm, strengthened and appear more defined.

RRP: Nutri-Define Superior Retexturising Facial Serum $145, Nutri-Define Multi-Correcting Day Cream $120, Nutri-Define Rejuvenating Overnight Cream $130
