ALBION Eclafutur Serum Review: Discover the Benefits of Yumesaika Peony

The summer is finally here, bringing sunshine, warmth, and fun. With skincare, the focus is on protecting our skin from UV radiation and maintaining its hydration levels. Summer blooms bring out the beauty of nature—who wouldn’t want smooth, glowing skin like a peony petal? Peonies have been used in traditional Japanese medicine for centuries. Now, you can harness their natural power with Eclafutur serum by ALBION. 

What Is Eclafutur by ALBION? 

ALBION Eclafutur is a high-performance, hydrating face serum from a renowned Japanese luxury skincare brand. Designed to protect your skin against environmental stressors while providing intense nourishment and hydration, this unique formula is infused with botanical ingredients: the skin-energizing Yumesaika peony petal extract, antioxidative wild grapes, and richly hydrating Cupuaçu butter. 

Yumesaika (meaning “Flower illuminating beautiful dreams”) is a proprietary beauty ingredient featured exclusively in ALBION skincare—a new variety of peony cultivated at ALBION’s Shirakami Laboratory for its skincare benefits. 

The cutting-edge Nanocesta EX complex, based on nano-micelle technology, ensures optimal delivery of potent ingredients to the skin barrier. Its nano-sized particles give Eclafutur its smooth, fast-absorbing texture.

Yumesaika Peony Extract: Unique Skincare Ingredient 

Peony flowers have been used in Japan’s herbal medicine for centuries. Through joint research with Japan's National Institute of Biomedical Innovation, ALBION’s Shirakami Laboratory cultivated Yumesaika, a new peony variety, specifically for skincare applications. This new species has beautiful, large, vivid pink and gold flowers that open at dawn and contain active skincare ingredients promoting skin radiance.

Yumesaika is grown at ALBION's farm at the foot of the Shirakami mountains in Akita, Japan, using organic, JAS-compliant farming methods (JAS is the certification system of Japan’s Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries). Yumesaika flowers are hand-harvested in full bloom and carefully processed to preserve their benefits. 

What Is Nanocesta ET Complex? 

In skincare, molecular weight of ingredients is important for their efficacy. Micelles, tiny nano-sized spherical structures formed by surfactants, can trap and remove dirt, oil, and impurities from surfaces, including skin. Nanocesta ET, developed by ALBION, is a complex of nano-micelles that work as an effective delivery system for Eclafutur’s ingredients to the skin barrier. 

Other Ingredients In Eclafutur Serum 

Apart from Yumesaika peony extract (Paeonia albiflora flower extract), Eclafutur serum includes:

  • Vitis Ficifolia var. ganebu Hatus: An extract of wild grape grown on the Okinawan island of Tonaki, known for its powerful antioxidant properties. 
  • Theobroma grandiflorum seed butter: Also known as Cupuaçu Butter, it’s an oil extracted from the seeds of an Amazonian fruit. This ingredient has rich nourishing and hydrating properties. 
  • Vitamins: Vitamin B (Biotin), Vitamin C (Ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate), and Vitamin E (tocopherol). 
  • Moisturizers: a complex of amino acids (the building blocks of our skin)—Serine, Sodium PCA, and Sodium lactate—known for their hydrating properties. 

Benefits of Eclafutur Serum for Your Skin  

Eclafutur serum by ALBION is an antioxidant-rich, hydrating face serum designed to rejuvenate and condition your skin, promoting a youthful glow and radiant complexion. Yumesaika peony extract is rich in polyphenols and flavonoids, which protect the skin from environmental stressors and support the skin barrier, keeping it hydrated and protected.

Well-hydrated skin looks smoother, firmer, and more radiant, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Due to its hydrating properties, Eclafutur serum is an excellent addition to an anti-aging skincare routine.

How to Incorporate Eclafutur Into Your Skincare Routine 

Eclafutur serum is part of the ALBION Special Care collection and is suitable for all skin types. Use it immediately after cleansing and before applying other ALBION skincare products. Dispense two or three pumps of the serum, gently press it onto your skin, and lightly massage with your fingertips to enhance absorption. Follow with your ALBION 4-step skincare ritual as usual.
