The bio-identical restoring mask delivers active ingredients essential to the re-lipidation and restoration of the skin, which becomes hydrated, firm, and resistant.
Deeply restored, the skin regains softness and comfort.
Features are smoothed and rested. The complexion is radiant.
Dehydration, wrinkles, dryness, skin sensitivity
This mask deeply strengthens the skin's structure, and:
- helps the regeneration of the epidermal lipid layer by promoting a consolidation of the intercellular cement and restoring the protective function of the skin's barrier
- reduces transepidermal water loss by limiting the evaporation, ensuring an optimal hydro-lipid balance that is indispensable to maintain young-looking skin
- neutralizes the skin's hyper-reactivity resulting from thermal, physical, and chemical aggressions.
Nescens cosmeceutical system
As part of the Nescens cosmeceutical skincare program, use the bio-identical restoring mask on perfectly cleansed and dry face and neck, bi-weekly or more frequently depending on the skin's physiological needs.
Leave for 15 minutes and rinse off with warm water.
Main active ingredients
Ceramides AP, NP and EOP: fundamental lipids necessary for the restoration of the hydrolipidic barrier. They ensure the cohesion of the skin's stratum corneum layer.
Phytosphingosine: reduces the activity of matrix metalloproteases and increases the production of extracellular matrix proteins. Stimulates the differentiation of keratinocytes. Strengthens the cohesion of corneocytes. Has anti-aging effects.
Cholesterol: essential component of the epidermal lipid barrier.
Palmitic acid: regulates stratum corneum acidification, integrity and cohesion. Increases skin hydration and elasticity.
Stearic acid: plays a key role in maintaining the flexibility of the lipid barrier in the stratum corneum. Has an anti-inflammatory effect.
Niacinamide: exerts a stabilizing effect on the epidermal barrier. Improves the moisture content of the stratum corneum. Speeds up the differentiation of keratinocytes.
Saccharide isomerate: provides a highly effective and long lasting hydration under conditions of dry air and low relative humidity.
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1 + Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7: activates the skin repair process. Smoothes wrinkles and improves the skin's tone and elasticity. Promotes the synthesis of components of the extracellular matrix.
Glycerin: restores the intercellular lipid lamellae organization in the stratum corneum. Ensures optimal hydration of the different layers of the epidermis.
Urea: reduces epidermal hyperproliferation and induces keratinocyte differentiation. Upregulates epidermal lipid-synthesizing enzymes.
Pyrrolidone carboxylic acid: component of the Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF), this highly hygroscopic molecule acts as a very effective moisturizing agent. Helps the normalization of unbalanced lipid lamellar structures in the stratum corneum.
Tamarindus indica extract: film forming polysaccharide complex, vegetal equivalent of hyaluronic acid.
Amino acids mix: includes 10 amino acids with high moisture retention properties (arginine, glycine, alanine, serine, valine, isoleucine, proline, threonine, histidine, phenylalanine), which participate in the constitution of the NMF.
Sweet almond oil: has a soothing effect and makes the skin soft and smooth. Improves the skin's complexion and tone. Smoothes and rejuvenates the skin. Reduces hypertrophic post-operative scars.
Shea butter: absorbs rapidly into the skin, acts as a lipid-replenishing agent, and has excellent water-binding properties. The phenolic compounds identified in Shea butter have antioxidant properties, and some of its constituents have anti-inflammatory, emollient and moisturizing properties.
Ascorbyl palmitate (Vitamin C): stimulates collagen production.
Tocopherol (Vitamin E): powerful antioxidant and photo-protective, prevents the peroxidation of skin lipids.
