Information on properties of the product active ingredients
It is a natural component of skin, and is also called “sponge molecule” for its ability to bind and retain water. In fact, the stratum corneum cells increase in volume, because soaked in water molecules that the hyaluronic acid absorbs and retains. Thus, it favours an immediate hydration and helps the skin to take on a more soft and smooth appearance.
Rich in sugars, alpha-hydroxy acids and proteins, all of vegetable origin, can be defined as the “vegetable moisturizing factor”. All these active together urea and sodium form the natural moisturizing factor of our skin or NMF. Thanks to the high concentration of active principles a moisturizing highly effective and durable action is obtained.
Hydroxy-propyl-Cyclo-Dextrins and cyclo-Dextrin
Functional principles of vegetal origin, which have a visible “tensor effect”. In addition, they also have a remarkable action as moisturizers.
SOD or Super Oxide Dismutase is naturally produced by human organism as the more powerful factor of defence against Free Radicals. Unfortunately, the progress in the industrialized countries generated a huge multiplication of Free Radicals originated by the environment, more and more polluted, and by UV radiations. As a consequence, the SOD produced by the human organism is no longer sufficient to neutralize these enemies of the skin. it is necessary to supply it with SOD from external sources. SOD included in a suitable cosmetic product is able to display its extraordinary efficacy in giving the skin a new youth. The primary effect of the SOD is the protection against damages produced by Free Radicals. Protecting Collagen and Elastin, the SOD allows to maintain the integrity of these two fibres, so preserving elasticity, strength and tonicity of the skin. In the same way, protecting also Hyaluronic acid from demolition.
Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein

It is an extract of Helix aspersa pure to 70%; the remaining percentage consists of substances normally present in animal secretions. Our product is of certificate italian origin and obtained without suffering of snails. The snail secretion has exfoliating, moisturizing, nourishing and regenerating qualities. The gently exfoliating action is linked to the natural presence of glycolic acid and lactic acid: these components help to moisturize and smooth the skin, remove dead cells from the skin surface then allows the substances contained in the product to penetrate. The presence of collagen and elastin, strengthens the skin and gives it firmness and elasticity; allantoin, vitamins and proteins help the skin in its natural process of regeneration and repair of damaged tissues thus counteracting the formation of scars, keloids and hyperpigmentation. The secretions of Helix Aspersa also defend skin against environmental pollution through its antioxidant action. Contrasting photo-aging these secretions exert anti-aging action.
