Trend Topic: Anti-pollution has become a hot topic in corrective skin care.
THE PROBLEM: With substances such as carbon monoxide, nitric oxide, sulfur compounds and heavy metals, industry and automotive exhaust gases are a primary cause for high pollution in our environment. These environmental stressors are a contributing factor for wrinkles, pigment disorders, loss of moisture and other chronic skin conditions.
How Does Pollution Damage Our Skin?
The size of these pollutants is a stress factor for our skin. The smaller the particles, the easier they are able to penetrate our skin!
The abbreviation „PM“ stands for Particulate Matter (= fine dust).
PM 10: Particulate matters with a size between 2.5 and 10 micrometers. Examples: Cigarette smoke and exhaust gases.
PM 2.5: Particulate matter smaller than 2.5 micrometers (100 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair). Examples: Heavy metals and several toxic compounds.
The average size of a skin pore is 50-70 micrometers! Thus, skin pores are a an open door for a broad spectrum of pollutants.
Summary of the effects of air pollution on skin:
Development of wrinkles, diminishment of resilience, moisture loss, formation of impurities and pigment disorders, loss of luminosity and increased sebum production.
THE SOLUTION: Shield your skin! The key ingredients in our anti-pollution products are able to block chemical-physical heavy metals and other PM 2.5 particulates and act as “protective shield” for skin. Moreover, these products have an antioxidant effect and stabilizes the skin cell membranes.
Two key Ingredients to include in any anti-pollution skin care regime:
Micelle: Micelle technology has been around for a while. You will notice that it has recently found application in a range of cleansers. When applied to the skin, Micelle opens up – its hydrophobic tails (water-hating, oil-loving) attracting all dirt and debris, whisking it away.
Bio Protection PM2.5: This ingredient is able to block chemical-physical heavy metals and other PM 2.5 particulates and to act as “protective shield” for skin. Moreover, Bio Protection PM2.5 has an antioxidant effect and stabilizes the skin cell membranes.
