Bringing Skin Science Down To Earth

Lucia Magnani is one of Italy’s leading wellbeing and skin experts. She is best known as the founder and director of the world-renowned Long-Life Clinic in the medieval, thermal spa town of Castrocaro Terme, near Bologna in Italy, a mecca for those in search of good health and rejuvenation.

Lucia Magnani Skincare is a new line of exceptional antioxidant skincare products that are the result of 20 years research by an international team of experts into wellbeing and dermatological health. Lucia Magnani Skincare embodies a new frontier in skin science, combining cutting-edge research into the vibrational physics of quartz crystal with antioxidants and their power to reduce oxidative stress in the body and slow down cellular ageing.

Scientists are now showing interesting evidence that our cells produce magnetic fields and mechanical vibrations. This continuous oscillation produces energy which, depending on its frequency, is believed to impact skin’s aging process.

This high-performance skincare, features a careful combination of earth elements and antioxidants which activate each other to deliver advanced skin repair from within and without. Skin regenerating micro-quartz crystal, Gulf Stream sea salt and grape extract, work synergistically with a powerful combination of antioxidants, coenzyme Q10, alpha lipoic acid and vitamins C and E for naturally radiant healthy glowing skin, whatever your age.

The range takes inspiration from the mineral rich land of Castrocaro where the soil is abundant with quartz crystal, healing thermal waters and velvet muds.

The striking and glamorous, curved tortoise shell bottles and pots are the work of award-winning packaging designer Marc Rosen.

Quartz Crystal is present as micro-particles and blended into the products. Quartz crystals are millions of years old, forged during the earliest parts of earth’s formation. Quartz vibrates interacting with our cells, so when it comes into contact with skin, it instantly energizes, regenerates and illuminates even the most tired skin. Quartz is rich in natural silica, which vibrates on a higher frequency and is attracted to weaker cells. It firms skin, improves tone and brightens complexions by refracting light.


Gulf Stream Sea Salt has a high concentration of bioavailable minerals and oligo elements (trace minerals), that are also the main elements found in Castrocaro’s fossil thermal water. It helps to restore equilibrium and revitalise skin.


Grape Extract (not grapeseed extract) this fruit extract has skin repairing qualities, important for healthy skin tissue development.



Alpha Lipoic Acid a coenzyme and master antioxidant that fights free radicals and reduces oxidative stress, helping to minimize skin cell deterioration. It has the capacity to regenerate vitamin C and vitamin E and coenzyme Q10 creating a powerful synergy that optimizes the fight against free radical damage.


Vitamins C and E work in synergy with each other, to help support collagen production and fight free radicals that can cause skin to lose elasticity faster.


Coenzyme Q10 also known as ubiquinone, energises skin, helps repair damage caused by the sun and pollution and keeps skin cells healthy.
