A gentle facial cleanser, 90 g
How it Works
Cleansing is the most important part of the skincare routine determining the efficacy of all products applied afterwards. A properly selected cleansing foam can not only cleanse but also moisturize the skin by restoring its protective functions.
- Deeply and carefully removes all types of impurities and excessive sebum from the skin.
- Moisturizes and nurtures.
- Restores skin protective (lipid) barrier preventing dehydration.
- Removes the “tired skin” effect characterized by greyish and sallow complexion, revitalizes.
- Possesses anti-inflammatory effect, soothes the skin.
- Does not cause the skin to dry out and can be used around the eye area.
- Effectively prepares the skin for further skincare steps.
The foam is hypoallergenic, does not contain synthetic colorants and perfumes, is suitable for sensitive, allergy-prone and dehydrated skin.
Moisturizing and protection
The foam contains a complex of soothing and skin-conditioning components, which correct skin tone and treat uneven texture
Pomegranate extract is a plant-extracted product which stimulates the synthesis of aquaporins. Aquaporins help normalize the moisture content level and restore the natural moisture circulation in the skin. Aquaporins are proteins that form “water canals” in membrane cells letting water molecules pass from one cell to another, thus maintaining the natural moisture circulation. In 2003, the study of aquaporin action was awarded with Nobel Prize in chemistry.
Stem cells extract from Alpine rose leaves is a cultivated stem cells extract taken from the leaves of Alpine rose that grows in uplands of the Swiss Alps. It stimulates the skin stem cells, protects against the loss of moisture, UV-light exposure and other negative environmental factors.
Edelweiss extract is a plant-derived ingredient extracted from edelweiss flowers. Strong protective properties help these flowers survive in the severe climate of the Alpine highlands under aggressive mountain sun with high UV radiation level, under sudden and frequent temperature drops, strong winds, snow storms, low atmospheric pressure. The extract is a powerful antioxidant, it protects the skin from the action of free radicals which is one of the main causes of aging.
Ceramides 2 (Ceramides NG) in liposomal form are characterized by improved penetrability and intensive moisturizing effect. They are the key structural components of skin barrier layer and enable the foam to maintain its protective function.
Revitalization and regeneration
A complex of vitamins and extracts in the foam tonifies the skin and boosts skin regeneration processes
Vitamins A, C, E and B5 protect the skin from UV radiation thus slowing down the aging processes. They retain moisture and soften the skin. Retinyl palmitate (a stabilized form of Vitamin A) in combination with Vitamins E and C softens and improves the skin texture, preventing the appearance of pigmented spots and formation of wrinkles by facilitating the synthesis of collagen and glycosaminoglycans that maintain the skin elasticity.
Dipeptide diaminobutyroyl benzylamide diacetate is a peptide with low molecular mass. Its action is similar to the effect produced by polypeptide Waglerin 1 which prevents the transmission of nerve impulses to mimic muscles and relaxes them. Suppressing the transmission of nerve impulses to receptor cells of mimic muscles under the skin, the peptide creates a cosmetic effect similar to that of Botox and helps reduce mimic wrinkles.
Squalane is a lipid naturally present in the skin. In Summus line products, a plant-derived squalane extracted from olive is used. The amount of squalane in the human body increases till the age of 25. After that, its synthesis starts to decrease which leads to the damage of skin protective function and to dehydration. Squalane can also «transport» other substances. It helps the cosmetic components penetrate much deeper into the skin and have a more intensive effect.
Extract of alpine skullcap flowers, leaves, stems is an extract obtained from a rare plant growing on the slopes of the Alps. It contains a large number of flavonoids that have an intensive anti-inflammatory effect. The extract stimulates the synthesis of beta-endorphin that helps protect the skin from stress.
