KARITENE PLATINUM Anti-aging Face Serum for Dry Skin – General.
Dry skin is characterized by producing less sebum than normal skin and by being continuously dehydrated. Therefore, it is necessary to provide the skin with nutrients and emollient oils that hydrate it deeply.
Normal skin is characterized by a good balance, fine pores, absence of impurities and a velvety, soft and smooth texture.
KARITENE PLATINUM Anti-aging Face Serum for Dry Skin contains carrier oils and essential oils high in fatty acids and antioxidants which prevent the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and provide the necessary nutrients to keep the skin moisturized throughout the day. At the same time, they protect the skin from external agents and avoid peeling skin and skin redness. This serum can also be used for normal skin.
Main active principles:
– Marula Oil (comedogenic rating 3/5): especially suitable for dry and very dry skin, as well as for sensitive skin. This excellent moisturizer is a light oil that absorbs quickly and leaves a silky and non-greasy feeling on the skin. It is very well known for its antioxidant properties. In fact, it has 16% more antioxidants (vitamin E) than argan oil. This, together with its high content of fatty acids makes marula oil an especially useful oil to combat free radicals, promote the production and synthesis of collagen and elastin, and delay the appearance of skin aging symptoms such as wrinkles and fine lines while attenuating its effects. Besides that, marula oil contains high amounts of vitamin C (about 8 times more than oranges), which also contributes to enhancing the production of collagen providing firmness and elasticity to the skin. It has regenerative properties, so it helps reduce scars (in particular, scars caused by acne). It also attenuates skin blemishes and helps prevent and reduce stretch marks. It has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It is a good cleansing oil. It is very high in oleic acid (Omega 9) and moderate in palmitic acid.
– Baobab Oil (comedogenic rating 2/5): it is a very nourishing oil suited for all skin types and, especially, for dry and very dry or cracked skin. It is also ideal for mature skin and sensitive skin. It is a light oil that absorbs readily without leaving a greasy feeling on the skin. It has emollient properties (excellent moisturizer) and improves skin tone. Due to its high content of fatty acids and antioxidants, baobab oil helps fight free radicals, promotes the production and synthesis of collagen and elastin, and delays the appearance of skin aging symptoms such as wrinkles and fine lines while attenuating its effects. It is a good repairing oil that stimulates tissue regeneration and healing. It has anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. It is a good cleansing oil. It is high in oleic acid (Omega 9) and moderate in linoleic acid (Omega 6) and palmitic acid.
– Organic Hemp Oil (comedogenic rating 0/5): suitable for all skin types and, especially, for oily skin and acne-prone skin. It is a fast absorbing oil that leaves no greasy feeling on the skin. It is also a natural emollient that provides skin with additional elasticity due to its ceramides. Its high content of fatty acids and antioxidants, in particular cannabidiol which has greater ability to capture free radicals than vitamin E, promotes the production and synthesis of collagen and elastin, and delays the appearance of skin aging symptoms such as wrinkles and fine lines while attenuating its effects. It is extremely high in essential fatty acids (70% – 90%) and very high in proteins and amino acids, which allows to claim that hemp oil is the most nutritious of all vegetable oils. It is also the one that has an essential fatty acid profile closer to that needed by the human body, with an Omega 6 / Omega 3 ratio of 3:1. Due to its cannabidiol (CBD) content, hemp oil has soothing effects on the skin, which places hemp oil as a natural alternative for acne treatment. It also has anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. It is very high in linoleic acid (Omega 6) and moderate in linolenic acid (Omega 3) and oleic acid (Omega 9).
Application tips: apply on face, neck and neckline with circular and ascending movements before the day and night cream and, if possible, after cleansing and toning the skin. Due to the high vitamin C content of marula oil (photosensitive) it is not advisable to use it during the day if exposure to the sun is expected. Avoid its application around the eyes. It is recommended to shake before using. Useful life once opened 6 months.
