This multi-purpose mask is formulated to support blemished skin while simultaneously smoothing and brightening it - by effectively restoring the balance of the skin microbiome (these are micro-organisms that naturally occur on the skin and help protect us from pathogens etc.), blocking inflammatory responses and regulating sebum production.
The Multi Repair Rescue Masque contains 3 different active ingredients to optimise the skin's microbiome, regulate pro-inflammatory enzymes and help your skin find and maintain balance.
Acne is the product of "androgen-induced excessive sebum production" & "inflammation" and this mask is designed with several active ingredients to help counteract various factors involved in causing acne:
1. C.acne bacteria is a major resident of human skin; it feeds on sebum and produces free fatty acids that have pro-inflammatory and comedogenic properties; thus, when the skin microbe is out of balance, the overgrowth of C.acnes induces inflammation and contributes to the development of acne. Our Multi Repair Rescue Masque is formulated with 3 different active ingredients to effectively optimise the skin microbiome, regulate pro-inflammatory enzymes and keep your skin in balance.
2. Another key factor in causing acne is the overproduction of sebum caused by excessive activity of the enzyme 5α-reductase and excessive production of androgen. The Maclura Cochinchinensis extract contained in the Multi Repair Rescue Masque addresses this acne-causing factor by blocking the steroidogenic enzyme and normalising sebum production.
Micro-silver particles work against acne by releasing positively charged silver ions to fight bacteria, stabilise the skin's microbiome and provide high, controlled and sustained support against C. acne bacteria. The beauty of silver is that it is not susceptible to antimicrobial resistance and the porous structure of micro silver helps the particles to physically adhere to the skin and stay on the skin surface to ensure safety.
Norway spruce extract
Norway spruce extract contains a composition of natural active substances that have a unique triple effect on the skin; the antioxidant properties of this ingredient protect your skin and prevent DNA damage, while its antimicrobial and antifungal properties make it highly effective against p.acne bacteria. It also has a strong anti-inflammatory effect by suppressing pro-inflammatory enzymes.
Maclura Cochinchinensis extract
To support the anti-bacterial properties of microsilver, this mask also contains a powerful bioflavonoid complex derived from the leaves of Maclura cochinchinensis. This multifunctional active blend modulates the skin's microbiome by selectively inhibiting acne bacteria, while down-regulating the expression of both pro-inflammatory enzymes and the steroidogenic enzyme (5α-reductase) to normalise sebum production. As this active complex has some retinoid-like properties, it also offers some anti-ageing benefits.
Directions for use:
Apply an even layer to clean, hydrated skin, avoiding the eyes and lips. Leave on overnight and rinse off in the morning. Use up to 3 times a week as needed.
