VITAMIN ENRICHED ENERGISING MASK
To pep up your skin. All skin types
APPEARANCE AND PROPERTIES
A pinkish light textured mask designed to be massaged into the skin and then left on as a mask for a further 15 minutes. Equally effective for the scalp and hair as it is for the face.
Containing Vitamins A,C,E,F and B this mask is biologically active and essential for all the physiological functions of the skin. Vitamin deficiency leads not only to internal problems but also to noticeable damage to both skin and hair. Research clearly proves that a greater concentration of vitamins in the skin can be obtained by external application rather than orally.
This most certainly therefore justifies the presence of our VITAMIN ENRICHED ENERGIZING MASK in our cosmeceutical skin care range. And its unique formulation ensures the inclusion and stability of all the oil and water soluble ingredients.
Please read carefully why each vitamin has been selected so as to appreciate the valuable benefits provided to the skin and scalp and hair.
RETINYL (VITAMIN A) PALMITATE: Its anti-ageing properties are well documented and internationally recognised as a result of both medical and cosmetic research. For example plumping of the skin through protein (collagen) synthesis thereby helping to reduce both the number and depth of fine lines and wrinkles. A visible skin conditioner which can reverse other less visible signs of ageing. Its easy absorption helps to nourish particularly dry skin and protect against trans epidermal water loss. And of course an effective anti-oxidant.
VITAMIN E (Tocopherol): Noticeable skin conditioning and healing properties. Easily absorbed into the skin nourishing particularly dry skin and protecting against trans epidermal water loss. And of course another effective anti-oxidant.
VITAMIN C (Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate): Converted in the skin to Ascorbic Acid where it acts as an effective anti-oxidant. Cosmeceuticals with anti-oxidants are now the most popular anti-ageing treatments. It also brightens the complexion, lightens pigmentations and promotes the synthesis of collagen.
VITAMIN F: If skin lacks this Vitamin it will become dry, withered and sallow.
VITAMIN H (BIOTIN): Important for the right balance of sebaceous gland secretion. A deficiency would almost certainly lead to dry seborrhoeic dermatitis.
VITAMIN B3 AND VITAMIN B8 (Niacinamide and Inositol): Essential to regulate the metabolic functions of the skin.
HORSE CHESTNUT EXTRACT: Its ability to promote circulation makes it very effective in reducing fragile or broken capillaries. It is also anti inflammatory and has diuretic properties to reduce excess fluid. These properties are responsible for the wonderfully effective Triple C Cream from Algologie.
NB: All these vitamins work synergistically meaning that they produce far greater results than if applied separately.
Apply a thin layer to previously cleansed and exfoliated skin. Massage lightly for about 5 minutes. Then apply a thicker layer and leave to activate for a further 15 minutes. Rinse well and continue with your skin care treatment.
