IXXI’s Elixir Range

Another gift for the skincare lover is the Elixir range from IXXI. IXXI, an expert brand in the anti-aging segment, is owned by the well-known DRT group (Dérivés Résiniques et Terpéniques). Located in southwestern France, DRT is an independent family-owned business and IXXI is the group's new entity and expert brand on the anti-ageing segment. IXXI's products come in lovely recyclable pink packaging. I have just started using a couple of IXXI products - Daily Defence Care and Detox Nighttime Emulsion - and the first impressions are good. If you are planning to gift skincare, then check out IXXI products. They are formulated without parabens, phenoxyerthanol, GMOs, nanoparticles or mineral oils. All their products, with the exception of 2 formulas containing a sun filter*, are made with a minimum of 90% natural active ingredients.
