ELEVE-imago-lozione-tonica

A toning lotion that balances and tones the facial skin after cleansing.
The presence of Extract of Orange Blossom and Red Grapevine gives an astringent quality which minimizes the dilation of skin pores.

RED GRAPEVINE

In the leaves of red grapevine there are the following active agents: Polyphenol derivatives such as proanthocyanidins, flavonoids, glucosides, tannins, organic acids, resveratrol, polyunsaturated fatty acids, vitamins (A, C, B1, B2, PP) and minerals (calcium, potassium, iron, copper, manganese). Polyphenols have the anti-inflammatory and protective qualities of capillaries. Anthocyanin tannins, in which this plant is rich, are from the same type as vitamin P. They have an antioxidant and protecting function for capillary vessels. They reduce permeability and increase durability of vascular endothelial, preventing the activity of enzymes – such as elastase – which damage the supporting perivascular tissues. Resveratrol and procyanidins both have a powerful antiradical capacity. They fight against ROS – Reactive Oxygen Species – which threaten tissue tone and elasticity. Extracts of red grapevine provide a high antioxidant-antiradical effect thus protecting skin from damage such as excessive exposure to the sun.

CORNFLOWER WATER

It is a plant with astringent, anti-inflammatory and diuretic properties containing active ingredients including flavonoids, anthocyanins and pectins. The astringent and anti-inflammatory action is mainly due to the presence of polyphenols.
Cornflower Water is particularly suitable in soothing irritations of eyelids and eye contour and to relieve tired eyes, puffiness and dark circles.

EUPHRASIA WATER

It has the ability to soothe eye irritations and has anti-inflammatory, astringent and anti-redness activity.

WATER WITCH HAZEL

It plays an anti-inflammatory, vasoprotective, venous-tonic action for sensitive and irritated skin as well as an astringent action for oily skins with large pores.

EXTRACT OF ORANGE BLOSSOM

An aqueous Extract of Flowers of Citrus Aurantium which enhances the endogenous defence systems of the skin. The high presence of antioxidant polyphenols protects the skin and helps to counteract damage caused by free radicals.
It has excellent toning, anti-reddening, regenerating and refreshing features.

SACCAROMYCES LYSATE

It is an active ingredient which has been isolated biotechnologically from a strain of special yeast called Saccharomyces Cerevisiae. It is rich in vitamin B1 or thiamine and promotes the processes of tissue trophism. It has stimulating and protective properties. It has demonstrated the ability to activate tissue regeneration through a significant increase of cellular respiration and oxygenation. It enhances the immune response of the cells and the defence from oxidation, increasing the regenerative power of the cells.

LACTIC ACID

Hydroxy acid with an action similar to glycolic acid. It helps cell turnover and hydrates the skin surface. It has a mild astringent action and, at high concentrations, it is keratolytic.

Soak a cotton pad with the product and dab the skin after cleansing. Avoid direct contact with eyes.
