Dermatologists would recommend gently cleansing your face first to ensure the skin is ready to absorb the cream. Apply in the morning to your face and neck. If you are out in the sun for an extended period, then the recommendation would be to top up any protective product regularly. The cream is effective, but light on the skin, making it an excellent base for any makeup.
Composition and Properties
Herculane Thermal Water – at the heart of every Ivatherm product, Herculane Thermal Water has been scientifically proven to soothe and calm sensitive skin. With a rich blend of minerals and oligo-elements, we take the ancient wisdom of its benefits and combine it with modern, effective science for optimal results.Aquaphyline® – a natural ingredient, extracted from wild pansies, also known as Viola Tricolor. It is known as a hydration inducer, as it promotes two different natural processes in your skin. Firstly it helps the skin to increase the number of cell membrane water channels, through the synthesis of molecules known as aquaporins. Secondly, it increases the amount of hyaluronic acid in the skin. This “molecular sponge” of the skin helps to attract water from the dermis up to the epidermis, so effectively keeping water flowing through the different layers of your skin, keeping skin, hydrated from the inside out. Solar filters SPF 30 – providing a synergistic action, this combination of filters help to protect the skin against UV radiation. The dermatologists we work with would recommend SPF30 for daily use, choosing a higher factor level if you’re going to choose to sunbathe.5-Alpha avocuta® – obtained from the avocado fruit, this extract helps to reduce sebum production as well as mattifying any areas of the face prone to shininess. In studies, it was shown to work by inhibiting the action of 5-alpha-reductase, the enzyme involved in sebum production.Jojoba oil – a natural ingredient, extracted from the seed of the jojoba plant. It has been prized for centuries, and then proven by scientific studies, to intensely moisturise and protect, as well as helping the skin to retain elasticity.Alfabisabolol – a natural extract from the Amazonian forest, used by the scientists for its calming effect.
