What's in: Facial Resurfacer

SeneDerm Solutions Facial Resurfacer is made of a combination of ingredients. Here are a few key components.

Volcanic Sand/Ash: used to buff and exfoliate dead layers of skin.

Nangai Oil: a natural oil derived from the Nangai nut that helps skin maintain moisture.

SenePlex Complex: kinetic enzyme that increases cellular renewal.

Corallina Officinalis (Blue Seaweed) Extract: provides sun protection an helps prevent ageing by hydrating, tightening and toning the skin.

Saccharomyces Cerevisiae Extract: a skin-conditioning agent used in cosmetics and beauty care products because of its ability to act in oxidative stress and improve skin conditions.

Juglans Regia (Walnut) Shell Powder: used to prevent or reduce inflammation, as an astringent, and as a cleansing substance. As a side note, the walnuts are crushed to a powder so they won't cut the skin's surface.

Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil: a plant derived emollient that mimics the lipid content of the skin. It helps stabilise and maintain the structure of the skin’s complex inter-cellular matrix, preventing moisture loss and cell damage. This helps in promoting the skin’s soft, smooth, healthy appearance.

Sodium Lauroamphoacetate: used as a surfactant, cleansing agent, and foam booster.

Sodium Trideceth Sulfate: used as a mild cleansing agent.

Sodium Chloride: natural sea-salt used as a binding agent.

Magnesium Aluminum Silicate: a mineral beneficial to skin.

Orchis Morio (Orchid) Flower Extract: used as a preparation of emollient products. This powerful anti-oxidant provides free radical protection and maximum moisturising ability. It is also a very effective sunscreen.

Glucosamine HCl: enhances the body’s ability to manufacture collagen.

Tocopheryl (and Tocopheryl Acetate): Vitamin E is essential for maintaining the activities of enzymes in the cells and for the formation of red blood cells. Acting as an anti-oxidant, it has been shown to inhibit skin cancer and aid in the healing of skin ailments. As a weapon against premature ageing, it combats wrinkles by neutralising free radicals to stop the chain reaction of molecular damage and protects the skin against oxidation. It’s also believed to protect skin from the sun’s ultraviolet rays once absorbed into the skin.

Synthetic Urea: an organic compound topical antiseptic, buffering agent, humectant, and skin conditioner.

Algae (Seaweed) Extract: hydrates, protects and softens the skin. It is essential in the penetration of the top layer of the stratum corneum and enhances the skin’s ability to repair itself.

Sodium Hyaluronate: with smaller molecular size than Hyaluronic Acid, it easily penetrates the skin’s surface allowing it to retain a relatively large amount of water (1,000 times its own weight). This feature means it can penetrate to lower layers of the skin, attract and retain water, and promote nutrient absorption.

Phenoxyethanol: an oily liquid used as a bactericide and topical antiseptic.

Panthenol: Vitamin B complex is essential for formation of new healthy tissues.

Caprylyl Glycol: plant derived skin-conditioning agent used as a preservative.

Citric Acid: a preservative and sequestering ingredient to prevent physical or chemical changes affecting colour, flavor, texture or appearance of a product. It helps the product adjust to the alkali balance and is also used as an astringent.

Ethylhexylglycerin: a natural preservative used as an alternative to parabens that is derived from glycerin and can also be used as a deodoriser and skin conditioner. It serves as a surfactant and safe preserving enhancer. As a synthetic compound derived from grains and plants, it works by reducing interfacial tension on the cellular walls of micro-organisms, promoting their more rapid destruction and a wider spectrum activity.
