ACTIVE SUBSTANCE CONCENTRATE FOR SENSITIVE SKIN
Undesired skin reactions which immediately require the skin to be calmed occasionally occur both in the beauty salon and during home care. The causes of this are diverse and damage the hydrolipidic barrier irrespective of skin type. Excessive exposure to the sun, skin irritation following temporary stress or a general disposition towards sensitive skin often cause redness and tenseness as well as rough skin and itching. De-Stress causes skin irritation to disappear! The oil-based ampoule concentrate soothes sensitive skin both quickly and reliably. It is colorless, odorless, resistant to oxidation and neither too light nor too oily. It is suitable for use in a gentle massage in the beauty salon.
De-Stress enhances the synthesis of epidermal lipids and therefore improves the quality of the horny layer. Its special feature is its content of 10% isostearyl-isostearate and 3% skin defense complex. Both active substances have been tested in dermatological studies. Trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL) is significantly reduced following just a short period of application*.
De-Stress strengthens sensitive skin! Beneficial moisture now remains in the skin for far longer and leaves it noticeably softer and more supple.
