Alginate Peel Off Masks
These masks complement all skincare regimes. They create an occlusive covering that encourages ingredient penetration from prior product applications. Although not necessary the use of a treatment serum is beneficial. Alginate masks can be combined with any active formulation, facilitating absorption of active components into the skin, and therefore can be used in many types of beauty treatments and procedures. They work well with photo rejuvenation, mesotherapy, myostimulation, ultrasound etc.
Alginate masks are natural beauty treatments that provide fast and impressive results, erasing fine wrinkles, tightening and firming the skin, increasing its elasticity, leaving it fresh, supple and radiant.
The main component of the alginate mask is algin (sodium alginate) or sodium salt of alginic acid – a compound obtained from marine algae. Another necessary ingredient is calcium sulfate. When mixed with water or water-based gel, these two powdered compounds form a hydrocolloid gel, which becomes a vessel for active ingredients, allowing their slow migration into skin.
Because alginate masks have a high water content, they quickly restore skin hydration, which in turn results in a remarkable improvement of the skin’s appearance. At the same time, this method of express moisturizing is superior to paraffin masks or mineral oils, since algin allows easy oxygen exchange and help absorb and remove toxins from the skin surface.
Alginate masks are also known as modelling, rubber or plastifying masks. It means that soon after applying, the mask sets, following facial contours. The mask remains plastic, so it doesn’t cause any discomfort and peels off easily in a single layer. No gauze is needed as the mask can be applied directly over the eyes and lips. The mask is activated by mixing the powder with water at Room Temperature. It is removed after 10- 15 minutes. There is little or no residue left to clean off the face.
Alginate masks can be used for all types of skin – normal, dry, oily, combination, mature. Our range of masks has been further enhanced by a variety of natural additives: herbal extracts, different types of clay, essential oils etc. With these special additives, alginate masks can be targeted to solve various skin problems. Even though additives are important, it is worth mentioning that any type of alginate masks would effectively revitalize and moisturize skin, improve circulation, tighten loose skin, reduce pore size, lessen puffiness and calm down skin after aggressive skin treatments.
