Givenchy is gearing up to roll out a revolutionary new anti-aging skin care product.

Created for people of all ages, Vax'in for Youth is based on the theory of hormesis -- the idea that exposure to small amounts of toxins or stressors helps your body develop immunity to them.

The beauty brand collaborated on Vax'in with bigerontologist Suresh Rattan, founder of the Laboratory of Cellular Aging in the Molecular Biology Department of Denmark's Aarhus University.

Rather than perfecting a skincare product that focuses on quenching free radicals, Rattan has developed a serum that induces hormesis and helps boost the production of an age-defying protein called HSP70, which increases cells' prolonged resistance to aging and protects and repairs proteins found in skin.

So what does all of this mean?

Vax'in works to help skin inhibit premature aging, including wrinkles, uneven skin tone, loss of elasticity and radiance.

In a self-evaluation study of 60 women over a one-week period, 82 percent of the participants felt that their skin was more resilient and youthful-looking.

Vax'in for Youth (30ml, $108) will first launch in France, Belgium, the United Kingdom, and Russia before making its debut stateside in October at select Sephora stores.
