Creamy emulsion with a soft texture, easy to absorb and adapted to all kinds of skin. The presence of hyaluronate sodium and bisabolol (moisturising, soothing and emollient active ingredients) helps to restore the barrier function of the skin, efficiently reducing irritations, reddenings and itch after the shaving. Thanks to its moisturising power it’s suitable to effectively soften the beard before the shaving or to obtain a natural soft effect.
• Sodium Hyaluronate
The hyaluronic acid salt is obtained by salification of the hyaluronic acid of high molecular weigh and, comparing with this, it’s more soluble, it doesn’t change the system viscosity and, thanks to its low molecular weigh (about 8000 Dalton) it’s absorbed by the skin and by the external cortex of the hair and beard, where it develops its moisturising action, creating a protecting surface film over the cuticle.
The hyaluronic acid is one of the fundamental components of the connective tissue, particularly of the ground substance, a compact gel in which are also immersed the collagen and elastin fibers. Its main property is the ability to bind a high number of water molecules, which allows to support the tissue plasticity and to grant the optimal hydratation of skin, hair and beard.
The alpha-bisabolol is a natural sesquiterpene alcohol. It is the main component of the camomile essential oil and it possesses well-known softening, calming and soothing properties, it reduces the reddening of the skin and relieves inflammation, it provides a soothing effect, mainly on particularly delicate skins. One of its main characteristics is its extreme skin tolerability.
The alpha-bisabolol acts blocking the 5-lipoxygenases and the cyclooxygenases, two enzymes present in the metabolic pathways of the arachidonic acid which lead to the formation of pro-inflammatory mediators. Thanks to these mechanisms, it efficiently soothes irritated skin, providing relief on areas affected by dermatitis, desquamation and other alterations of the normal balance of the skin.
