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.
Bakuchiol – an innovative naturally-derived ingredient which is as effective as topical retinoids, but without their side effects (including it does not photosensitise the skin). Acting to reduce skin inflammation process, it also reduces sebum secretion and reduces the acne microflora on the skin (which lead to breakouts). Scientists have also shown that it significantly inhibits elastase, which helps to reduce the risk of acne scarring.
Salicylic acid and glycolic acid – part of the family of alpha and beta hydroxy acids, the scientists include them to deeply clean pores and remove the dead skin cells obstructing them. Together they help to balance cellular renewal and reduce residual signs of any outbreak.
Octopirox – an antimicrobial agent which acts on the bacteria and microbes that exist in the microflora on acne-prone skin.
ImerCare ™ – a clay of natural origin, this helps to reduces sebum production as well as the absorbing sebum on the skin’s surface. This helps to provide a long-lasting mattifying effect.
Alpha-bisabolol– a natural extract from the Amazonian forest, used by the scientist for its calming effect.
Zinc gluconate – reduces signs of inflammation and is part of the blend included in the cream to act on the acne microflora.
