We have prepared for you another cream fluid for the summer, this time focusing on reducing inflammation. The intense heat is an aggravating factor if your skin is prone to problems. In summer, we need to focus not only on reducing inflammation, but also on making sure our skin is adequately hydrated to avoid excessive dehydration. After all, what good is an anti-inflammatory agent if our skin can not use it properly because it's too "thirsty".
The first step is to keep your skin barrier functioning optimally and your skin hydrated.
Since we could not get past this complex problem, we created a complex formula for you where anti-inflammation and hydration go hand in hand.
The key ingredients are:
Zinc PCA: Zinc is essential for our body. It is also an essential element in skin care, and it is important to replenish it both internally and externally, especially if your skin is prone to inflammation. Zinc PCA is basically a salt in which zinc is bound to an amino acid derivative, PCA (NMF factor - natural moisturiser). In this form, when applied to the skin, the zinc can be used optimally and PCA helps to reduce excessive water loss.
Centella, or gotu kola: A medicinal plant used for centuries in Asian Ayurvedic medicine. It helps with minor injuries, bruises and burns (like sunburn). It is rich in flavonoids and phytosterols, which help the superficial (epidermis) and deep layers of the skin regenerate faster.
Green tea extract: A natural granule extracted from the Camellia Sinensis, the tea plant. Its main active ingredients such as polyphenols, catechins, caffeine and flavonoids (tea flavin, flavone) work together to keep our skin healthy. Its antioxidant properties prevent the accumulation of pollutants and free radicals in the body, slowing down premature ageing of the skin.
Squalane: Squalane is a saturated modification of unstable squalene and is also a stable form. Squalane is a saturated modification of unstable squalene and is also a stable form. Squalane is a non-saponifiable lipid derived from herbal oils (olive oil, amaranth, etc.) and is an essential component of the hydrolipid layer of human skin. It is a skin-identical ingredient that does not leave a greasy feeling.
Betaine: As a humectant, it prevents excessive evaporation of water from the skin and increases the feeling of moisture. It is particularly beneficial for sensitive skin as betaine is able to prevent or reduce unpleasant reactions to other irritants.
Sodium PCA: Moisturizing Factor (NMF): One of our skin's natural moisturizers (NMF) is plant-derived Sodium PCA, chemically the sodium salt of pyroglutamic acid. This small amino acid derivative plays an important role in maintaining skin moisture. This small amino acid derivative plays an important role in maintaining skin moisture. It is activated in the skin as pyroglutamic acid. Thanks to its excellent hygroscopic effect, it is able to bind and absorb moisture on the skin.
