The name “mandelic” comes from the word “mandel” meaning almond. It belongs to the AHA category (alpha hydroxy acids) and is a prized ingredient used in the following cosmetic effects: Lightening,Exfoliating,Decongestion,Anti-inflammation.
Gluconolattone is a poly hydroxy acid. It has a strong long-term hygroscopic and hydrating effect due to the presence of many hydroxylating compounds. Applied to the skin, it encourages exfoliation and cell renewal through the process of keratinisation. It also has good antioxidant properties and acts to repair a damaged cutaneous barrier.
HYALURONIC ACID (Sodium Hyaluronate
This is a fundamental component of the skin with hydrating, regenerating and anti-ageing effects. It preserves cell function and provides elasticity, flexibility and firmness.
Combining these two enhances their mutual effects, which are: Antioxidant: counteracts oxidisation processes and therefore the production of highly damaging substances. Their combination produces optimal results because antioxidant Vitamin C acts on the aqueous structure of the cells while Vitamin E acts on the lipid structure. Anti-wrinkle: Vitamin C is used to combat wrinkles, not only because of its antioxidant properties, but it is also essential in the production of collagen in the skin. Provides a visible increase in skin consistency. Vitamin E (and therefore all antioxidant substances) produce an anti-wrinkle effect which helps prevent the appearance of the signs of premature ageing. Vitamin E performs a vital role in the promotion of regenerative processes in tissue damaged by the sun’s rays. Hydration: the presence of Vitamin E on the skin creates a protective layer which limits moisture loss. It is the best vitamin to prevent the effects of the process of oxidisation, even in younger skin. Reduces damage and encourages tissue repair.
Using vitamin A and its synthetic equivalents has been shown to be effective for cosmetic and dermatological purposes for: • treating disorders caused by keratinisation, such as hyperkeratosis and parakeratosis • treating acne and related disorders • treating eczema and other auto-reactive disorders • treatment of cutaneous dyschromia • preventing malignant pathologies carried by epithelium cells • preventing malignant pathologies carried by melanocytes • preventing cutaneous ageing and photo-ageing.
Acetyl Dipeptide-1 is a peptide that has a triple action effect. It stimulates elastin, giving greater firmness and density to the skin. It is very suitable for stressed, sensitive, irritated, dry and itchy skin.
Sodium Phytate is the sodium salt of phytic acid, a chelator of natural origin obtained from wheat and rice bran. It comes in the form of a dark-colored liquid, soluble in water, with a characteristic odor. The main function of Sodium Phytate consists in the chelation of metal cations (calcium, magnesium, iron) preventing them from binding to other ingredients of the cosmetic formulation by altering the stability of the product itself.
It is the smallest among the alpha-hydroxy acids. It comes from natural sources, such as fruit, beetroot and sugar cane. It comes in the form of a crystalline solid, odorless and colorless, highly soluble in water. Its reduced molecular weight favors its absorption in the stratum corneum. Its activity is linked to the ability to reduce the forces of cohesion between the corneocytes by direct action on desmosomes. The exfoliation of the upper layer of the epidermis and the increase in the speed of cellular turnover, produce an increase in fibroblast activity and in the production of collagen and elastin.
Apply in the morning and in the evening the necessary quantity of product and massage until complete absorption. Not greasy. May be good base for make up.
