*THE CULTURAL CHARACTERISTICS OF PITYROSPORUM OVALE – A LIPOPHYLIC FUNGUS, RHODA W. BENHAM
The so-called „fungal acne” is a term which refers to the skin infection caused by fungus of the Malassezia genus. Its symptoms are itching, redness and hypodermic inflammations – most commonly on forehead and cheeks.
The serum does not contain retinol or vitamin A derivatives. Cosmetics made by Terrapi do not contain phenoxyethanol, instead it is protected by a natural, gentle preservative system. Lack of skin-irritations properties is proven with dermatological tests.
Benzyl Alcohol belongs to the aromatic alcohols group. It functions as a gentle preservative for skin and is approved for usage in natural cosmetics.
The serum is successfully used as an effective near-eye sensitive skin care.
Propanediol and ectoin contained in the product are binding the water and transport it into the skin ensuring its proper moisturising.
After massaging the product into the skin, one can sense a slight viscosity caused by lactobionic acid. After five minutes, when the product passes through the skin, it will become fresh and illuminated – with no film.
Light formula of the product lets it easily pass through the skin and moisture it, thus preparing it for the make-up. You can also mix the serum with some natural, loose foundation, shadow, or concealer right before their application.
The capacity of the bottle is 30 ml (1 fl.oz) – around 180 pumps.
