The ecosystem we live in today is changing drastically. Pollution, food, stress, and modern lifestyles have led to an increase in the number of people with sensitive skin or allergies.
In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) claims that 50% of the world’s population will suffer from allergies in the coming years and that most people will have sensitive skin.
A holistic approach to this situation involves using foods with anti-inflammatory properties, such as fruit and vegetables, vitamins, antioxidant food supplements, and cosmetics with active anti-inflammatory ingredients. One of these highly effective antioxidant, anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory cosmetic active ingredients is thermal water.
Each thermal mineral or thermo-mineral water is unique because the composition of minerals and trace elements is different from one source to another.
The water of the Herculane thermo-saline spring, used in Ivatherm products, has a significant concentration of minerals and essential trace elements for the skin: magnesium, calcium, copper, zinc, iron, manganese, and selenium, being recognised for its calming effect.
Moreover, its anti-inflammatory properties were recently demonstrated in a clinical study conducted and coordinated by MD Prof. Călin Giurcăneanu, President of the Romanian Society of Dermatology: The study deduced that there was a reduction of rosacea, oedema and skin temperature when thermal water was applied immediately after the dermatological procedure.
Patients under medical supervision reported a reduction in the sensation of itching, burning and pain immediately after applying the thermal water in the form of spray.
Herculane thermal water spray is recommended to be used daily, incorporating it into your skincare routine immediately after cleansing. Thermal water should be sprayed on the face from 15 centimetres, left to act for 1-2 minutes and then removed with a tissue by tapping lightly.
