The active mechanism of fruit acids is quite simple and similar to that of biological peels. By peeling the old keratinized cell layer, acids open the way for new, juvenile cells, thus, the skin rejuvenation process takes place. By applying the emulsion with a high content of algae extract (more than 8%) to the cleansed skin, you improve its general condition. As a result, the skin is more moisturized, lifted, wrinkles are smoothed.
The rejuvenating effect of fruit acids has been known to mankind for several thousands of years. There is evidence that Cleopatra, the recognized ideal of women’s loveliness, washed herself with sour wine. Slavic women maintained their beauty by making berry and milk masks using cranberries and sour clotted milk. Ancient Roman and Egyptian women made masks out of products containing acids — lemon and grape juices.
Effect of the mask’s active ingredients
Alpha-hydroxy (fruit) acids have a positive effect on the skin condition at the molecular, cellular and tissue level. They exert a peeling, moisturizing, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant action. They stimulate the appearance of new cells, intensify the synthesis of collagen and elastin, clear, even the skin structure.
Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) acts as a triggering spring in the synthesis of tissues, helps in the production of the cellular energy, makes the skin healthy, smooth and resilient. Vitamin B5 is known as the “anti-stress vitamin” and boasts an added anti-inflammatory effect.
Salicylic acid is an anti-inflammatory, antiseptic agent. It gently peels the dead skin layer, cleanses pores, fights effectively against acne and pigmentation.
