What are the main active ingredients in Masque Vivant?
Yeast Extract: Yeast is made up of mineral salts, carbohydrates, lipids, and vitamins that give it many beneficial properties. Masque Vivant is very rich in vitamin B, which help preserve the skin’s integrity. It has a re-balancing effect (for oily or dry skin or scalp) and promotes the healing of certain skin conditions like acne and hyper-seborrhea.
Bentonite: Bentonite is a clay known for its highly absorbent properties. It carries a powerful negative charge which bonds to the positive charge in many toxins (chemicals or heavy metals) as well as to impurities. It can then absorb them and eliminate them. It also helps to supply cells with oxygen: by absorbing excess hydrogen, it lets the cells replace it with oxygen. Bentonite therefore boasts both detoxifying and purifying properties and is particularly suitable for cases of excess sebum.
Cider Vinegar: This extract is obtained from fermented apples which have been transformed into vinegar. It has high concentrations of fruit acids, which have a variety of actions: Acetic acid, a powerful exfoliant, helps purify skin. It is used in purifying and astringent treatments. Citric and malic acids promote the desquamation process and improve cellular renewal. Rich in polyphenol, cider vinegar has significant antioxidant activity: it protects skin from the harmful action of photo-induced free radicals
Complex based on Myrrh, Myrtle and Onion: Myrrh is the resin produced by the balsam tree native to North Africa, which belongs to the Burseraceae family. Myrtle is a shrub native to the Mediterranean Basin. Onion is native to the Middle East. This complex of active ingredients has soothing, purifying, antioxidant, and astringent properties.
Witch Hazel Extract: Witch Hazel is a small shrub whose extract is rich in tannins and flavonoids, which means it has many virtues. It is particularly effective in promoting microcirculation and improves the resistance of blood capillaries. This may help reduce visible redness. Soothing and anti-inflammatory, it calms and prevents skin irritation. Astringent and purifying, it tightens dilated pores on the face.
Cucumber Extract: Cucumber is an herbaceous plant native to India. It is rich in vitamins, trace elements and minerals, which means it has numerous properties suitable for all types of skin. Both softening and hydrating, it is suitable for very dry skin, and its calming effect even brings relief to slight burns and itching (pruritis). In addition, it refreshes and stimulates the complexion, restoring its radiance. Cucumber also has significant purifying properties that respect sensitive skin. As it is slightly astringent, it is also suitable for oily skins.
