Description The natural Myrrh is already mentioned in the Old Testament for its power. Through modern techniques of extracting and preservation, Masqua Myrrha is the most luxurious and expensive mask of the whole series; results will show that this is completely justified. The woman who can allow herself – and afford it too – will enjoy the luxury of “Masque Myrrha”.
This intensive mask contains a combination of Myrrh and Quercus-Meristem. The working of Myrrh in this aromatic mask is various. It has a recovering effect to the skin; it is also an antisepticum and a tonicum. The combination of Myrrh and Quercus-Meristem, which has an anti-oxidant effect, gives skin recovery a new impulse. The aromatic oils, Ylang Ylang and Geranium, take care of recovery in the balance of sebum production and do have a relaxing effect.
Argireline (10%) (only 10% is really active). The action of Argireline takes place in the synapses of the nerves, steering the small muscles in your skin (just like the action of Botox). When receptors in the synapse are blocked by Argireline, no neurotransmitters are released in the synapse. Therefore, the muscles in the skin do not contract, which inhibits the formation and worsening of wrinkles. Research has shown that Argireline (10%), compared to placebo, causes a wrinkle reduction of 30% after 30 days of use. This research was published in J. Cosmet. Sci. 2002, Oct; 24 (5): 303-10.
Myrrh With repairing / protective effect on the skin: astringent, antiseptic, antibacterial (especially against the Prop. Acnes Bacterium!) and therefore recommended for oily and/or sensitive skin and acne prone skin. Extract with very specific odour.
Porcelain clay, refined quality of bolus alba, is a purifying mineral powder with absorbing properties. Absorbs sebum, dust and skin microbes, hence cleansing the skin pores deeply, rendering a wonderfully soft and smooth skin.
Takes care of the ceramide synthesis in the skin, strengthening the skin barrier in a natural way by creating lamellar lipid layers. Therefore naturally moisturizing the skin. Also improves the skin's defence. In case of Vitamin B3 deficiency, the sin will look very bad after a while (called "Pellagra").
Oak extract (Quercus) Natural oak extract with tannins, which improve the skin’s resistance against external stress factors, for example with sensitive skin. It also has radical scavenging properties, helping to keep the skin tight.
Spilanthes Acmella is originally coming from the inlands of Brasil and Peru. The native people discovered the power of leaves and buds of Spilanthes, which seemed to have a very good effect against toothache and dry mouth. For the skin Spilanthes appeared to have even more interesting benefits: through the stimulation of ceramide synthesis this extract is strongly moisturizing. Furthermore, the alkylamides sourced from this plant extract do fortify the extracellular matrix. This is done by the reorganization and strengtheningof the collagen fiber network of the connective tissue of the skin, which at the same time provides its anti-ageing and anti-cellulite action. Besides, the fortifying action of Spilanthes can be considered as strong ánd quick.
D-alpha-Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E) Vitamin E is known as an antioxidant and it protects the membranes of skin cells. It has a positive influence on skin moisture balance and blood circulation.This is often describedas the most important vitamin against the signs of ageing. Medex only uses the 100% active and 100% natural stereo-isomer D-alpha-Tocopheryl Acetate, which guarantees the optimal performance of D-alpha-Tocopherol. Tocopheryl Acetate is hydrolysed in skin to the active substance Tocopherol, which helps to prevent general skin damage from free radicals (e.g. produced from UV radiation).
