Intensive Cream Atopic Skin
RECOMMENDED IN CASES OF IRRITATION CHAPPING ITCHING AND REDNESS
Soothing and emollient
S’AGAPÓ INTENSIVE CREAM is a cosmetic treatment specifically designed for distressed, problematic atopic skin needing rapid relief. Its rich formula containing high concentrations of active, functional ingredients, including snail slime, bisabolol, allantoin, glycyrrhetinic acid, Bacopa monnieri extract and tamarind extract, is able to provide a soothing, emollient action in cases of irritation, chapping, itching and redness. Rapidly absorbent, with its delicate, silky texture it softens the skin, providing relief and easing any discomfort in treated areas without making the skin heavy and greasy.
Its precious vegetable oils, such as sweet almond oil, rice bran oil and argan oil, are naturally rich in vitamins and restorative fatty acids, helping to renew and maintain the skin’s physiological hydrolipidic film. Used daily, it helps to alleviate any irritation and stress in the skin, which will feel softer, more comfortable and visibly more hydrated. This cream contains no parabens, colouring agents, silicone oils, petroleum jelly or allergens, so it is also recommended for more delicate adult and baby skins.
SNAIL SLIME (Helix Aspersa) is naturally rich in: Mucopolysaccharides, which perform an intense, extended hydrating action, as well as nourishing and purifying the skin; Allantoin, which has hydrating, anti-reddening, anti-ageing, anti-oxidizing and healing properties; Glycolic acid, with an intense peeling action that helps to remove dead cells and facilitate cell turnover; Collagen, a protein which supports, protects and maintains the hydration of the skin, as well as performing a “natural filler” function, minimizing wrinkles; Elastin, a protein capable of assisting our skin’s natural elasticity; Purifying peptides, which carry out a wide range of actions, from improving cell turnover to reinforcing the skin barrier; and anti-oxidant Vitamins A-C-E, with vitamin C also stimulating the production of collagen and inhibiting its destruction.
RICE BRAN OIL: (Oryza sativa): known for its high content of antioxidant and soothing tocopherols and tocotrienols, it is recommended for all types of skin, even the most delicate and sensitive thanks to its high degree of compatibility. As well as performing a protective, emollient action, with its light texture this oil is able to hydrate the skin without making it heavy.
SWEET ALMOND OIL: (Prunus amigdalus dulcis): rich in emollient substances that prevent dryness and dehydration of the skin, helping it to form and maintain its natural hydrolipidic film. The antioxidant substances contained in this oil slow down the formation of the radicals that cause ageing of the skin, while its nutritive substances make the skin soft and silky, performing a restorative, elasticizing action. With its soothing action protecting against reddening and irritation, it is particularly recommended for treating delicate, sensitive skin.
ARGAN OIL: (Argania spinosa): extracted from the fruit of the argan tree, this oil is packed with nutrients that are good for the skin. The cold extraction process used to obtain it makes it highly-prized and particularly precious. It contains over 80% polyunsaturated (linoleic, linolenic and oleic) and saturated fatty acids, the main components of which are palmitic and stearic acid. It is rich in tocopherols, most notably γ-tocopherol, and in flavonoids, carotenoids and xantophylls, as well as sterols and triterpenes. Besides having beneficial biological effects, argan oil’s antioxidant compounds provide excellent oxidative process stability, making it a multifunctional eudermic oil. The soothing and protective effect this oil has on the skin prevents problems caused by aggressive atmospheric agents such as wind, cold and the sun, as well as chemical or physical agents, ensuring a balanced supply of lipids without weighing down the skin. Furthermore, it can reinforce natural protection by facilitating the oxygenation of cells, making the skin more hydrated and vigorous.
GLYCERIN: also called glycerol, this thick, viscous liquid containing three -OH groups is a natural plant substance which is fully mixable with water, a property which unquestionably makes it suitable for the care of our body. Its regenerative, hydrating and moisturizing functions have been renowned for many years, and it is recommended in particular for enriching formulations intended for face skin care. It manages to restore the skin’s tonicity and softness while making even the tiredest of faces bright and beautiful.
VITAMIN E: this is used in high concentrations as an active ingredient to counter the effect of free radicals on skin, and to slow down the cell ageing process. It is a fat-soluble vitamin, mainly found in vegetable oils. Its action on the skin consists mainly of inhibiting the formation of lipid peroxides on the skin, and reducing the formation of free radicals. Scientific studies confirm its hydrating and anti-inflammatory activity. Other research has shown that vitamin E is largely absorbed by healthy skin, and it seems that it may reach the dermis.
