- Laminaria Algae: Harvested from the Iroise Sea (France) is rich in anti-wrinkle “Fucose”, an essential sugar only present in brown algae cell walls. This rare sugar Fucose is involved in vital functions of the human skin by playing a key-role in cellular communications and cellular functions. The application of fucoses to the skin cells achieves a variety of stimulatory effects. It promotes the accelerated healing of wounds (regeneration) and reduces allergic reactions. It helps to reverse the signs of aging by bringing back the skin’s structure and firmness*.
- Candida Saitoana: A detoxifying extract rich in α-glucans from fungus Candida saitoana, obtained by fermentation biotechnology. This active boosts the cell autophagy and reinforces cell detoxification thus improving cell and tissue longevity. In vivo testing demonstrates improvement the micro-relief and the overall complexion radiance and uniformity*.

Some tests have shown beta-glucan is 20% more hydrating than hyaluronic acid at the same concentration*.
- Helichrysum Stoechas Oligosaccharides: Help regenerate the structure of the collagen fibers damaged by aging, helps skin become firmer and more toned with fewer wrinkles*.
- Ascorbyl Palmitate: Stable and non-acidic form of vitamin C that is effective as an antioxidant. Ascorbyl palmitate is particularly effective at reducing environmental damage*.

After cleansing, exfoliating and toning, apply a thick layer to clean dry or moist face and neck with fingertips or a brush. Massage in and allow the mask to infuse skin for 15-20 minutes then rinse. For best results may also be left on overnight. Use as a thin layer mixed with a few drops of oil or cream for extra nourishment. Mild pilling is to be expected as some of the ingredients create a non-occlusive “second-skin” barrier.
