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.Alpha and beta hydroxy acids – using a blend of salicylic acid and lactic acid, the scientists include them to deeply clean pores and remove the dead skin cells obstructing them. Together they help to balance cellular renewal, ensure sebum and reduce residual signs of any outbreak.Melaleuca oil – also known as Tea tree oil, known to be a very effective purifying agent, particularly against acne microflora. Our scientists use it in an encapsulated form which prolongs its effect on the skin. Its antibacterial effect is comparable to benzoyl peroxide gel, but it doesn’t have the adverse effects of skin dryness and irritation.Octopirox – an antimicrobial agent which acts on the bacteria and microbes that exist in the microflora on acne-prone skin.Alpha-bisabolol – a natural extract from the Amazonian forest, used by the scientist for its calming effect.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.
