Today, our diet is increasingly poor in nutrients (-40% since 1950), yet they are essential to the skin. With stressful living conditions, trace element deficiencies are becoming more and more frequent. More than ever, supplements to cope with these deficiencies in trace elements are necessary! 

Many dietary supplements exist, but the skin is one of the last organs to receive trace elements via the diet. Gemology offers Cutaneous Oligotherapy to provide the skin with the resources it needs, because cutaneous oligotherapy has several benefits

Cutaneous Oligotherapy is a response to skin deficiencies in trace elements and minerals. 

Naturally, minerals and trace elements are present in the body but in minute quantities, and like zinc, some cannot be retained by the body. 

It is proven that trace element deficiencies have consequences on the skin: 

- Iron deficiency: leads to vitamin C dysfunction and collagen decline
- Copper deficiency: complexion becomes dull and natural protection against free radicals diminishes
- Magnesium deficiency: skin is less protected against cutaneous inflammation (acne, redness, dilated pores, etc.).In addition, magnesium relaxes the skin.
- Zinc deficiency: healing becomes poor, enzyme activation is reduced and antibacterial protection diminishes.

This is where Gemology comes in with Skin Oligotherapy, the very essence of our DNA. 


Cutaneous Oligotherapy is an ideal solution for dealing with mineral and trace element deficiencies and provides a rapid response at the source of all skin problems. It acts on various deficiencies by providing the missing trace elements such as 

- Silicium: deeply moisturizes the skin and increases elasticity for tired skin, with a strong anti-aging action
- Zinc: purifies and limits excess sebum, soothing redness and irritation while increasing skin firmness and elasticity.
