Hyaluronic acid is a molecule (polysaccharide) that occurs naturally in our bodies. We can find it in the epidermis as well as in different types of mucous membranes. Hyaluronic acid, as a powerful water retainer, hydrates the skin and boasts a series of properties that make it unique:
Anti-inflammatory effect, reduces redness. It makes skin firm and smooth (thanks to the lubrication of thecollagen fibres). Defensive barrier of the skin (capacity to impede the movement of certain pathogens). Gives mechanical stability to joints.
Horse Chestnut is a plant that constitutes one of the best remedies to tone arteries and capillaries. The standardised extract contains a minimum of 90% Escin, Bioflavonoids of proanthocyanidin and coumarin and Esculin. It is a great venotonic (substance that improves venous tone, increases the potential of contraction of the elastic fibres of the venous wall). Powerful anti-inflammatory effect.
It reduces permeability (reducing the number and size of small pores in the capillary walls). Anti-oedematous vasoprotector. Boosts resistance of the capillary walls.
Caffeine is an alkaloid of the xanthine group. Its topical application stimulates drainage and microcirculation. Furthermore, it reduces the rate of triglycerides quantitatively. Lipid-lowering Agent. It has strictly local pharmacological action without systemic effects. It induces lipolysis of adipose tissue.
Menthol is a secondary alcohol, which is found in mint oils. When applied to the skin, it boosts blood flow, which achieves greater circulation triggering a cold stimulus which the body responds to with vasoconstriction and after with vasodilation.
It has antibacterial, refreshing and anaesthetic properties.
