Apis Professional Brightening Face Mask Reducing Discolouration 200ml
For skin with discolouration in need of lightening
Velvet mask based on natural brightening complexes Melavoid™ and Darkout™ with innovative mechanism of action, limiting melanin synthesis and process of pigmentation.
It reduces visible surface spots (age-related dark spots, discolouration, freckles).
In addition, it contains extracts from cucumber, grapefruit, d-panthenol, hyaluronic acid, collagen with elastin, coconut oil and soya oil.
Effect: Skin is nourished, moisturised, silky smooth and its colour is indiscreet and radiant.
Melavoid™ – it is an extract obtained from the roots of Boerhaavia diffusa. Active ingredient which has brightening properties, affects the initial mechanism of pigmentation, regulates melanogenesis, settles skin colour and reduces the visibility of spots. It reduces the amount of synthesized pigment because of melanocytes by 34%, not affecting their viability. Due to PPARγ, Melavoid™ activation, it modulates expression of melanocytic genes. Melavoid™ has recognised efficacy and an acceptable level of safety, reducing both synthesis and activity of the tyrosinase enzyme and formation of the melanin itself, without affecting vivacity of dermal melanocytes. In addition, in vivo studies have confirmed that it lightens the skin colour in a balanced and uniform way, differentiating between the skin with or without discolouration. Melavoid™ also reduces the number of spots, resulting from various hypopigmentation.
Darkout™ – this is a purified extract from Hypoxis Rooperi bulbs. It settles skin colour and helps to brighten the skin and makes it more radiant. It is an ideal active substance, having brightening properties, which reduces the synthesis of melanin by synergistic reduction of tyrosine activity and inhibition of expression of tyrosine. In addition, due to the antioxidant activity and increasing collagen synthesis, it can be successfully used in cosmetics protecting against the photo-ageing of the skin.
Grapefruit extract – is rich in vitamins B, C, E, P. It has antibacterial properties and helps to tighten and tone the skin.
Cucumber extract – smooths, gently lightens the epidermis discolorations, has anti-inflammatory and tensing properties.
Collagen – maintains high level of skin hydration, smoothers micro-wrinkles, firms and tightens.
Elastin – improves skin elasticity and firmness, it exhibits excellent hydrating and smoothing properties and relieving processes of ageing.
Hyaluronic acid – a mucopolysaccharide binding elastin and collagenous fibres in the dermis, it is able to bind from one thousand to four thousand times more water than its mass and for this reason is used as one of the most valuable moisturising factors.
D-panthenol- intensively moistures, softens and makes the epidermis elastic. It effectively soothes irritations and acts soothingly and protectively on the excessively sensitive skin and mucous membranes.
Soybean oil- oil obtained from soya beans, contains essential fatty acids NNKT (formerly called vitamin F) and biologically active substances such as: vitamins, phytosterols, phospholipids.
Application: Apply tick layer of the mask evenly onto cleansed face, neck and cleavage avoiding eye and mouth area. Leave for 15 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water or toner.
