CICA + Ceramide regenerating cream
Almost 1.618 CICA cream is a real remedy for chronically dry, stretchy, itchy skin. Our skin is our body's first line of defense, so it must be given real care. The most complex formula of Almost 1.618, which soothes irritated and sensitive skin prone to redness.
When we talk about CICA cream, a couple of valuable components immediately come to mind, which, when included together in the list of ingredients, are guaranteed to soothe and regenerate tired skin in no time.
Let's start the series with the Asiatic pennywort (also known as centella or gotu kola), which is closely intertwined with the name CICA cream and forms the basis of this cream as well. Gotu kola is a herb used in Asian ayurvedic medicine for centuries. It has a beneficial effect on minor injuries, abrasions and burns (such as sunburn). It is rich in flavonoids and phytosterols, which help the surface (epidermis) and deep layers of the skin to regenerate faster. Also, with its active ingredients, centella is able to block the work of collagen-degrading enzymes, and it also supports natural collagen synthesis. And collagen strengthens the structure and connective tissue of the skin by activating the cells of the deeper layers (fibroblasts).
Ceramides are also an essential component of the product. Ceramides are naturally contained in our skin, but due to various external and internal influences, their content in the skin may decrease. Therefore, we need to strengthen and rebuild the barrier from the outside so that the healthy immunity of the skin can be maintained in the long term. It also has the role of cell regulator, which is why they also help to maintain the skin's natural moisture.
The extra active ingredient is astaxanthin, the top carotinoid component found in the microalgae species Haematococcus pluvialis. In terms of its chemical structure, thanks to the double bonds in the molecule, it can absorb harmful ultraviolet rays, and as an extremely strong antioxidant, it is highly effective against the chain reactions of free radicals. It strengthens the skin cells, makes the cell wall flexible, thereby reducing wrinkles and restoring the skin's firmness.
Panthenol could not be left out either, which is the provitamin of B5. It is a natural exfoliator, accelerates skin regeneration, improves skin hydration and reduces inflammatory processes.
