    Description

    The moisturizing face cream enriched with squalane and hyaluronic acid is a powerful solution to fight dryness and dullness of the skin. Squalane, a natural emollient, acts as a shield against external factors, preserving the skin's moisture and radiance. It also regulates sebum secretion, ensuring a balanced hydration level. Hyaluronic acid, known for its exceptional compatibility with human skin, provides an intense burst of hydration, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by premature aging. Moreover, it promotes wound healing and soothes skin irritations, leaving the skin feeling smooth and healthy. The formula also features allantoin, which strengthens the skin's moisture barrier, boosts elasticity and has antioxidant properties. While niacinamide (Vitamin B3), increases skin moisture levels by improving protein synthesis and reducing inflammation processes. The xylitol complex, with its innovative 3D hydro concept, promotes moisture circulation in all skin layers, enhancing the synthesis of hyaluronic acid and reducing irritation and inflammation. The cream's hydroxyethyl urea and sodium PCA components have better moisturizing properties than glycerol, thereby restoring the skin's optimal moisture level. To top it off, the product contains rosehip seed oil, which is rich in fatty acids and restores the hydrolipidic barrier, leaving the skin feeling soft, supple, and radiant. Regular use of this face cream is the ultimate solution to keep your skin healthy, hydrated, and glowing.

    Scientific validity

    The combination of squalane, hyaluronic acid, allantoin, and niacinamide in this product provides a range of benefits for the skin. Squalane strengthens the skin's natural barrier function and regulates sebum production to maintain hydration, while also protecting against oxidative stress caused by UV exposure. Hyaluronic acid deeply moisturizes the skin and promotes wound healing, while allantoin soothes and moderates the skin's reaction to stronger active ingredients, making it a valuable addition to post-treatment skincare routines. Niacinamide offers a multitude of benefits, from inhibiting the transfer of pigmentation from melanocytes to keratinocytes, to reducing inflammation and preventing glycation, making it suitable for a variety of skin concerns, including acne, rosacea, dermatitis, and psoriasis. Together, these ingredients create a powerful skincare formulation that promotes healthy, radiant skin.

    Xylitol complex uses the 3D hydro concept to retain moisture balance across all skin layers. The skin's immune response is improved as hyaluronic acid production is stimulated as well. The inclusion of hydroxyethyl-urea in this formula ensures that your skin will be deeply moisturized without any sticky or oily residue. By containing Sodium PCA, a natural component of the skin's moisturizing factor, the complex is able to restore the skin's protective barrier and ensure moisture is not lost.

    Rosehip seed oil is another key ingredient in the xylitol complex, offering excellent moisturizing properties and rich in beneficial fatty acids that help restore the hydrolipidic barrier and even out skin tone. This oil is also known to have anti-inflammatory properties, making it an effective ingredient for reducing erythema, or redness, in the skin. Its nourishing properties are further enhanced by its high content of antioxidants and vitamins, which help protect the skin from environmental stressors and signs of premature aging. Together, these ingredients make the xylitol complex an ideal choice for anyone seeking a powerful, all-natural moisturizer that can help keep their skin healthy and radiant.

    Active ingredients

    Sodium Hyaluronate (INCI: SODIUM HYALURONATE)

    The remarkable hydrating and rejuvenating effects of hyaluronic acid make it one of the most versatile and in-demand components of modern skincare. The body produces this substance naturally, but as we age, its production declines, causing wrinkles and reduced firmness. The retention of skin moisture and binding of water in the top layer of cells are what Hyaluronic acid used in eye creams, face creams, and face masks do to prevent visible signs of skin aging. A youthful appearance is maintained while preventing visible skin aging by using hyaluronic acid.

    Allantoin (INCI: ALLANTOIN)

    Allantoin has a soothing and protective effect on the skin while boosting cell regeneration and formation. An odorless, white substance soluble in water and fat, allantoin is derived from the urine of mammals and plants and has various skincare benefits. Allantoin has a soothing and protective effect on the skin, and it can accelerate cell regeneration and formation. Allantoin possesses properties that make it a perfect ingredient in creams and emulsions utilized for stressed skin care. It enhances skin texture and structure. Allantoin can also be found in hand care products, typically used to make the skin soft and smooth again, primarily in cases where the skin of the hands is rough or cracked. It can be a valuable component in products for the delicate eye region as it helps retain natural moisture. Rosehip seed oil, besides being an excellent skin-softening and moisturizing vegetable oil, provides other benefits. By providing crucial fatty acids that include linoleic acid, linolenic acid, and oleic acid, it helps in evening out skin tone while restoring the skin's hydrolipidic barrier. Also, rosehip seed oil comprises vitamin A that can alleviate fine lines and wrinkles, and vitamin C that can boost collagen synthesis and enhance skin flexibility.

    Squalane (INCI: SQUALANE)

    Squalane, a clear, colorless, and odorless oil, is a great emollient with a high affinity for the skin. It is easily absorbed and can help to improve skin texture and smoothness. Squalane is not only found in olive oil but can also be synthetically produced.

    Niacinamide (INCI: NIACINAMIDE)

    Niacinamide, a form of vitamin B3, has many benefits for the skin. It helps to visibly reduce enlarged pores, improve skin tone, reduce the depth of wrinkles, and strengthen the skin's protective barrier. Niacinamide can also help reduce skin damage caused by negative environmental factors and fight various skin problems such as acne and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

    AQUAXYL™ (INCI: XYLITYLGLUCOSIDE, ANHYDROXYLITOL, XYLITOL)

    AQUAXYL™ is a unique blend of active ingredients that includes xylitylglucoside, anhydroxylitol, and xylitol. This 3D hydration hydroconcept is specifically designed to maintain moisture circulation in all skin layers and increase hyaluronic acid synthesis. In just 24 hours, AQUAXYL™ strengthens the skin's protective barrier and stops water loss through the skin. Cosmetogenomics have determined the mechanism of action of this ingredient, which is based on the control of water circulation in the skin. The ingredient has also received COSMOS, ECOCERT, and Natrue certificates, ensuring its safety and efficacy.

    Glycerin (INCI: GLYCERIN)

    It has high skin tolerance and effectiveness, making it an excellent choice in cosmetic products. A high-viscosity, odorless liquid that can dissolve in water and other alcohols. Glycerin is essential for maintaining skin hydration as it is a natural part of the hydrolipid mantle of the skin. Thanks to its humectant properties, glycerin has become an incredibly popular ingredient in almost all skin care formulations, drawing moisture to the skin and improving overall hydration. Moreover, it has a high degree of skin tolerance and effectiveness. Shampoos and conditioners also use glycerin to improve hair texture while keeping it moisturized.

    Hydroxyethyl urea (INCI: HYDROXYETHYL UREA)

    Derived from urea, hydroxyethylurea restores skin's moisture and elasticity as a humectant. The formula is upgraded with this ingredient, enhancing the skin's sensory experience without adding any stickiness. This product works wonders on dry and sensitive skin by soothing and calming any irritation.

    Sodium PCA (INCI: SODIUM PCA)

    Both plant-based sources and laboratory synthesis are used to obtain Sodium PCA, a natural amino acid derivative widely used in cosmetic products. Skin's natural moisturizing factor, sodium PCA, is responsible for boosting skin hydration and elasticity by drawing water into deeper layers. Sodium PCA is vital in attracting moisture to the skin and keeping it hydrated. Cosmetic products like shampoos, lotions, serums, and gels make widespread use of Sodium PCA. Sodium PCA is found in many cosmetic products and can be sourced from natural materials or synthesized to lessen environmental impact.
