Information on properties of the product active ingredients
Sod is naturally produced by living organisms as the most powerful factor of defense against free radicals. Unfortunately progress, especially in highly industrialized civilization, brought as a side effect, an enormous multiplication of free radicals from the external environment increasingly polluted. As a result, the Sod produced by the body is no longer sufficient to neutralize these enemies of the skin, then it must come to the rescue of our cellular structures with Sod supplied from outside. Sod, protecting Elastin and Collagen, preserves elasticity, strength and tone skin. In addition it also protects the Hyaluronic acid from deconstruction. Beyond that, the Sod is a protective shield of cellular functions, and when it is hit by the free radicals, decomposes, releasing protein fragments and minerals such as Copper and Zinc. The protein fragments are reused to restructure the fragile and damaged skin. So in addition to the protective effect, Sod also exerts a dermo-restorative skin effect.
The specific characteristics of Sod have attracted the attention of MCR experts, always careful in search of modern functional principles designed to encourage the end result of a new youthful of the skin.
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.
Polysaccharide belonging to the class of glycosaminoglycans (GAG’s). These are natural components which, incorporating a considerable amount of water become a valuable source of hydration slowly release and therefore long lasting. Also constitute a physiological support for the fibers of collagen and elastin, which give strength and elasticity to the skin.
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.
Chondrus Crispus (Carrageenan)
Rich in carrageenan, exerts demulcent and softening.
And 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.
