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.Shea Butter – also known as Karite Butter, it is renowned for its ability to soothe itchiness and provide deep hydration to the skin. Used for many centuries to moisturise the skin, Shea Butter helps the skin absorb all the essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants in the product. These contribute to the suppleness of the skin, leaving it looking and feeling softer and smoother. The scientists also use it for its ability to reduce irritation and discomfort in the skin, due to its phytosterol content.Alpha-bisabolol – a natural extract from the Amazonian forest, used by the scientist for its calming effect.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.
