Prickly Pear Extract

Prickly Pear Extract

The prickly pear extract in the Face Cream is natural, obtained by applying a custom enzymatic treatment capable of reducing the molecular size of the Indian fig polysaccharide to improve the efficacy of these macromolecules by increasing bioavailability. Indian figs grown exclusively in Sicily were used for this product. The product is therefore 100% Made in Italy.

Shea Butter

Shea Butter

Shea Butter is a 100 percent natural, plant-based product that has been used for centuries for skin beauty and protection. It is extracted from the seeds of an African plant, Butyrosperum parkii , a tall, towering tree. Shea nuts are harvested and a soft, buttery, light yellow substance with a sweetish scent rich in vitamins with excellent moisturizing and nourishing properties is extracted from within them. Shea Butter is effective in reducing the appearance of wrinkles and improving skin elasticity. It also helps fight damage caused by free radicals.
Present in the formulation of the BBCream , it gives deep hydration and emolliency while protecting the skin throughout the day from external aggressions, cold and dehydration.
Shea Butter due to its high cinnamic acid content counteracts some of the sun’s harmful UV rays, providing some protection in sun exposure.

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba oil is extracted from the seeds of the jojoba plant, which is native to the desert regions of North America.This oil has been known for centuries for its countless benefits to the skin and hair. Jojoba oil is similar to the sebum naturally produced by human skin. This similarity makes it an exceptional moisturizer that can penetrate deep into the layers of the skin to keep it soft and moisturized without clogging pores. It is especially effective for dry and sensitive skin. Jojoba oil is rich in antioxidants, including vitamin E. These antioxidants help prevent free radical damage to the skin. Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, jojoba oil is ideal for soothing irritated or reddened skin. It can be used to relieve discomfort caused by skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. This ingredient is an excellent ally for skin repair, as it contains linoleic acid and oleic acid, which support skin cell regeneration and help heal damaged or scarred skin.

Sichuan pepper

The Benefits of Sichuan Pepper

Many studies have been conducted to evaluate the soothing effect of Sichuan Pepper on skin sensitivity. Twelve volunteers were asked to define heat perception according to the following parameters: hot (feeling good), warm (discomfort) and pain followed by a thermal stimulus given by an instrument that emits a certain amount of heat and provides a continuous skin temperature reading. After the first reading, Sichuan Pepper emulsion (0.5% Sichuan Pepper/ cm2) and empty emulsion were applied to the scapular area of the volunteers. Thermal skin sensitivity measurements were then taken after application of the product. Sichuan Pepper has a calming effect on the perception of “heat” but does not affect the sensation of pain. Additional evaluation of the soothing and anti-itching effect of Sichuan Pepper was performed on 40 healthy volunteers with mosquito bites.
The volunteers recorded the itching intensity of at least 3 mosquito bites per arm. Overall, 67.5% of the volunteers reported an anti-itching effect of Sichuan Pepper spray solution (0.5%) compared with the placebo sample. Further clinical studies showed the same calming effects of Sichuan Pepper in a variety of applications.

Argan Oil

The Benefits of Argan Oil

The main active element in the Protective Dry Oil is Argan Oil, which is especially valuable for those who want to take care of the body and nails. It is able not only to deeply moisturize but also to improve tissue elasticity and give radiance. Use of the oil highlights exceptional dermatological properties: feeling on the skin of softness, smoothness and silkiness. It is naturally rich in essential fatty acids, Vitamin E, linoleic acid. Thanks to its content of special Phytosterols, it provides soothing and repairing activity, helping to keep the skin glowing. A clinical study conducted by Moroccan researchers on the potential beneficial effects of Argan Oil for skin health was tested in a group of 60 postmenopausal women, not following hormone replacement therapy, who were asked to apply 240 mg/day (2 mg/cm²) of Argan Oil-based dry oil, corresponding to about 10 drops, to the volar region of the left forearm, avoiding spreading any other cosmetics in that area. To evaluate the ability of Argan Oil to improve skin elasticity, the following parameters were measured: R2 (overall elasticity); R5 (net elasticity) and R7 (biological elasticity) and RRT (resonance running time) at the volar region of the left and right forearms before the start of treatment and after 30 and 60 days. Factors R2, R5 and R7 are directly proportional to skin elasticity, while RRT is inversely proportional. On the right arm of the women treated with olive oil, no significant changes in the above parameters were measured while on the left arm, where Argan Oil was applied instead, significant changes in factors R2, R5, R7 and RRT were revealed. After 60 days of treatment, a significant improvement in skin elasticity measurable by a significant increase in R2, R5 and R7 factors and decrease in RRT.

Plant Keratin and Hyaluronic Acid

The Benefits of Plant Keratin and Hyaluronic Acid

The combination of Plant Keratin and Hyaluronic Acid helps protect, soothe and improve the overall condition of the skin of the hands, feet and nails. Plant Keratin is composed of 18 amino acids derived from wheat, corn and soybeans perfectly dosed to promote biomimetic reconstruction action.
Keratin also recompacts the deficient matter of the skin by reconstituting its cellular architecture. Hyaluronic Acid, contained in the new Hand Foot and Nail Cream rebalances hydration rates to bring softness and elasticity, helping to stimulate collagen repair.

The Benefits of Plant Keratin and Hyaluronic Acid

The Sensitive Skin Moisturizing Face Cream contains Sichuan Pepper, which fights itchiness and is a powerful soothing and calming agent. The face cream for oncology patients is enriched with a moisturizing factor that ensures respect for the skin’s natural hydrolipid mantle (NMF), and Prickly Pear extract ensures intense, long-lasting hydration. The prickly pear extract in the sensitive skin face cream is natural, obtained by applying a custom enzymatic treatment that can reduce the molecular size of the Indian fig polysaccharide to improve the effectiveness of these macromolecules by increasing their bioavailability. Indian figs grown exclusively in Sicily were used for the moisturizing face cream. The product is therefore 100% Made in Italy.

Efficacy moisturizing face cream for sensitive skin:
Its effectiveness was evaluated by measuring the change in skin hydration: the area treated with prickly pear extract showed a marked improvement over the score obtained with placebo. In one week, the prickly pear extract was able to increase skin hydration by 27%, and the rate increased after two weeks by +35%. At the end of two weeks of treatment with cosmetics containing prickly pear extract compared with placebo, a test was performed to evaluate the protective effect of the product on mild irritation caused by sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS).

The study was performed on the same panel using an occlusive patch with 3% SLS solutions applied to the forearm surface of each volunteer. The patch was removed after 12 hours, and digital images were collected 24 hours after patch removal. The areas treated with the cosmetic formulation containing prickly pear extract showed a reduction in irritation (a value * in the CIELab color system) caused by the occlusive application of SLS by 37.5 percent compared with the placebo formulation. The Lab or CIELAB or CIE 1976 color space (L*, a*, b*) is a color-opponent space with dimension L for brightness and a and b for color-opponent dimensions, based on the coordinates of the nonlinear compressed CIE XYZ color space. Thus, the coordinates of Hunter 1948 are L, a and b. Brightness is calculated using the cube root of relative luminance. Lab includes all perceivable colors, so it fully includes the gamuts of the RGB and CMYK color spaces and is independent of the device that represents them. This color space is used by the Adobe Photoshop software when there is a need for a conversion from RGB to CMYK as well as as an exchange format between different devices.
