Cosmetic and Therapeutic Properties
Key ingredients include soothing and invigorating Damask rose hydrosol, which is suitable for all skin types, moringa oil, which is rich in unsaturated fatty acids and vitamins A, B and C, rosehip oil, which contains an active form of vitamin A acid that reduces wrinkles and accelerates cell renewal, and sweet almond oil, which acts as a natural skin protector and emollient.
In addition to the white clay that moisturizes and purifies the skin, this mask contains apricot kernel powder that is regenerating and detoxifying. But what gives this mask all its regenerating and brightening power is the squalane, the extract of camerise from Quebec and the essential oil of balsam poplar, also from Quebec.
Squalane, the Ultimate Anti-Wrinkle Agent
Squalane is present in the sebum of your skin and is largely responsible for the firmness and elasticity of the skin. As we age, the concentration of squalane decreases, which contributes to a feeling of dry, rough skin. Adding squalane to our products allows us to help you maintain stronger, smoother looking skin and is an excellent emollient. In other words, squalane is used to help stabilize the hydrolipidic film, (the skin's natural shield!) and maintain its hydration as well as facilitate the absorption of the cream without leaving an oily residue.
Haskap Berry, the Fruit of Longevity
Rich in antioxidants and vitamins A and C, as well as being an excellent anti-inflammatory, the camerise is known in Japan as the fruit of longevity. With its anti-aging properties and many other health benefits, this title is well deserved.
Balsam Poplar Against Wrinkles and Inflammation
Idoine's newest and most distinctive ingredient, the essential oil extracted from balsam poplar is composed of up to 30% alpha-bisabolol, an unsaturated monocyclic sesquiterpene alcohol found in some essential oils. The anti-wrinkle and anti-inflammatory properties of this molecule are impressive and act as a soothing ingredient especially in cases of eczema or allergies.
