    Description

    Intensively restoring the skin's moisture level, the cream with hyaluronic acid and rice proteins is intended for dry and/or dehydrated skin that has lost moisture. Hyaluronic acid, due to its high biocompatibility with human skin, helps reduce wrinkles caused by premature aging, reduces skin irritations, promotes wound healing and moisturizes it [1]. Allantoin not only promotes wound healing and healthy tissue growth, but also reduces irritations, helps restore skin's moisture level, elasticity, and has antioxidant properties [2]. The xylitol complex helps maintain water circulation in all layers of the skin and increase the synthesis of hyaluronic acid and reduces skin irritations and inflammatory processes. Rosehip seed oil moisturizes the skin and contains beneficial fatty acids that help restore the hydrolipidic barrier and even out skin tone [3, 17]. Betaine is a humectant and gives it elasticity and plumpness. This ingredient increases the moisture level of the skin and reduces the depth of wrinkles [4]. Oat extract helps to care for dry, irritated skin. This extract is rich in omega-3 linoleic and omega-6 linolenic acids and fatty acids, which are necessary for the barrier function of the skin [5-9]. Rice protein is classified as an enzyme inhibitor that blocks the activity of metalloproteases (MMPs) and is therefore considered an effective antiaging ingredient with antioxidant effects [10]. Using this product regularly will leave your skin hydrated, supple and glowing.

    • Helps to restore the proper moisture level of the skin;
    • Improves skin elasticity and makes the skin soft and smooth;
    • Reduces damage caused by free radicals;

    Scientific validity

    1. Hyaluronic acid in the product, due to its high biocompatibility with human skin, helps reduce wrinkles caused by premature aging, reduces skin irritations, promotes wound healing and moisturizes it [2];
    2. Allantoin soothes skin irritations and has skin moisturizing properties, so this ingredient is often used in products for sensitive or damaged skin. In addition, allantoin helps to moderate the skin's reaction to stronger active ingredients necessary to address specific skin problems, making it an effective ingredient in skin care after various chemical peels (peelings) [2, 11].
    3. The Aquaxyl™ complex improves the skin's surface and enhances the synthesis of essential lipids and proteins involved in the formation of the stratum corneum [15]. This complex not only helps to attract moisture to the deeper layers of the skin, but also helps to retain it by reducing transepidermal water loss.
    4. Rosehip seed oil moisturizes the skin and contains beneficial fatty acids that help restore the hydrolipidic barrier and even out skin tone [3]. In addition, this oil helps reduce erythema [12].
    5. Betaine is an excellent moisturizer and an ingredient widely used in anti-aging cosmetic products. Betaine helps transport water into the deeper layers of the skin, reduces the depth of wrinkles and helps protect the skin from free radical damage [4].
    6. Oat extract helps to care for dry, irritated skin. This extract is rich in omega-3 linoleic and omega-6 linolenic acids and fatty acids, which are necessary for the barrier function of the skin [5-9]. As a result, this ingredient helps reduce irritated and dry skin.
    7. Rice protein is classified as an enzyme inhibitor that blocks the activity of metalloproteases (MMPs) and is therefore considered an effective antiaging ingredient with antioxidant effects [10]. Metalloproteases are enzymes that can damage collagen fibers and this is one of the essential mechanisms of aging.

    Active ingredients

    Hyaluronic acid (INCI: SODIUM HYALURONATE)

    Hyaluronic acid
    acid occurs naturally in the human body and is important for various tissues,
    component such as skin and connective tissue. Hyaluronic acid
    ensures soft and smooth skin as it can bind water well. However, with
    with age, the body produces significantly less hyaluronic acid. Because of this
    the reason is that in old age the skin loses its elasticity and wrinkles form.
    To prevent this process, hyaluronic acid is often used as an anti-aging agent
    inhibitory active ingredient in products such as eye creams, skin and
    face creams, as well as facial masks. In these products
    the job of hyaluronic acid is to retain moisture in the skin by binding water
    in the upper layer of cells. In this way, visible skin can be softened
    signs of aging [13].

     

    Allantoin (INCI: ALLANTOIN)

    Allantoin
    is a product of protein metabolism that occurs in the urine of mammals and many
    plants (barks of horse chestnuts, roots of common jam and scorzonera
    (black salsify), maple, wheat germ, etc.). White odorless substance
    are soluble in water and fat. Allantoin has a soothing and protective effect on the skin
    effect. In addition, it accelerates cell formation or cell regeneration.
    Many cleansers that contain allantoin have an additional
    protective effect. It helps to preserve natural moisture such as
    in the sensitive eye area. In skin care creams experiencing stress or
    Emulsions contain especially many structure-improving ingredients such as
    allantoin, which makes the skin smoother and softer. Allantoin in the hands
    in care products, makes the skin soft and smooth again, if the skin of the hands is
    rough, cracked [14].

     

    Rose hip seed oil (INCI: ROSA
    CANINA SEED OIL)

    It is a great skin softener and moisturizer
    vegetable oil rich in fatty acids (linoleic acid 51%, linolenic
    acid 19% and oleic acid 20%). Suitable for all skin types, even acne
    damaged skin [3, 17].

     

    AQUAXYL™ (INCI: XYLITYLGLUCOSIDE, ANHYDROXYLITOL, XYLITOL)

    How AQUAXYL™ works
    based on the maintenance of moisture circulation in all skin layers and hyaluronan
    increasing acid synthesis. This mixture of active ingredients strengthens the skin
    protective barrier within 24 hours and stops water loss through the skin.
    The results are softer, smoother skin in 28 days. AQUAXYL™ strengthens essential lipids and proteins,
    involved in the formation of the stratum corneum, synthesis. The ingredient has COSMOS,
    ECOCERT and Natrue certificates [15].

     

    Betaine (INCI: BETAINE)

    Betaine is
    a humectant ingredient that can be plant-based or
    synthetic. It is also found naturally in our skin. This ingredient
    commonly known as an osmolyte: a substance that helps the skin adapt to
    moisture loss and gain or a substance that balances the skin
    hydration. Betaine is often added to cleansers because of its soothing properties
    with properties that help to compensate for possible irritant surfactants
    effects of substances. It is also used as a hair conditioner
    ingredient. More recent research suggests that betaine acts as a tyrosinase
    inhibitor and can be used as an ingredient that helps
    even out uneven skin tone [4].
