Serum Mist Extra
An immediate effect intensive spray-type serum, 40 ml
Serum mist extra is the first mist in the line which does not require skin cleansing and toning before application. The serum provides intensive care and immediately improves three main visual characteristics of the skin: firmness, glow and texture evenness.
The second generation of the mist is developed with consideration of and focusing on the intensified adverse impacts of various stress-factors on the skin. Serum mist extra restores skin’s natural protective barrier more effectively and is capable of maintaining it over a longer period of time, even when the skin is exposed to extreme temperatures and dry air. Thus, the product can be reapplied less frequently, but at the same time its active ingredients work more intensively, ensuring a longer skin treatment effect.
An innovative formula of the mist allows to apply it directly over the makeup, and a spray bottle is convenient for you to use the mist at any moment.
- The mist smoothes out deep mimic wrinkles and removes less deeper fine lines that usually appear during the day, resulting from skin dryness.
- Possesses an ultra moisturizing effect.
- Mattifies and evens out the skin tone.
- Strengthens barrier function of the skin, prevents transepidermal water loss.
- Tones the skin making it look radiant.
- Soothes redness and irritation as well as counteracts any discomfort (stinging sensation, tightness) caused by dryness.
- Provides a light lifting effect care for the eye and face contour.
- Controls the extent of sebum production and the degree of water deficit, prevents oily glare.
- Fixes uneven skin texture.
- When applied regularly, makes the existing pigmented spots less visible and prevents the formation of new ones.
- Restores skin’s elasticity and, delivering moisture deep to the cells, plumps up the skin.
- Prevents the formation of new wrinkles and, when applied regularly, makes the already existing ones less noticeable.
The product does not contain alcohol, perfume, artificial colorants. Suitable for the eyelid skin, sensitive and allergy-prone skin. Does not ruin makeup if applied over it during the day.
Protection and toning
A natural moisturizing factor component included in the mist aims at supporting skin’s moisture level and at providing effective protection.
Natural moisturizing factor, NMF, is a complex of molecules, the function of which is to pull in moisture and to retain it inside the stratum corneum of the epidermis. It is a system that is directly responsible for the skin moisture balance support.
Out of all water present in the stratum corneum, approximately one third is associated with the natural moisturizing factor molecules. Other two thirds remain free. But only water bound to NMF affects the skin elasticity level.
Natural moisturizing factor helps skin cells maintain water balance even when the skin is exposed to environments with insufficient humidity: if NMF is not damaged, skin can absorb water even from ambient air with a low level of humidity (less than 50%). One of the main tasks the mist aims at is to restore and support natural moisturizing factor of the skin.
Serum mist extra contains sodium pyrrolidone carboxylate — a natural amino acid which is involved in the natural skin hydration process and is one of the NMF components. This component is originally present in the stratum corneum of the skin and is responsible for absorbing moisture “from outside”, not only from ambient air, but also from skincare products. It allows to sustain the necessary levels of skin moisture and barrier function, making the skin healthy and radiant.
Moreover, amino acids constitute part of natural moisturizing factor and form ionic bonds in keratin fibres, thus reducing mechanical tension between them and improving elasticity of the skin.
Ultra hydration and repair
An innovative component developed by Shiawasedo laboratory underlies a powerful moisturizing effect of the serum. AQUALIZER PRO is a filtrate of fermented Schizosaccharomyces yeast extract in its effective concentration.
AQUALIZER PRO tones up the skin cells as it contains 18 amino acids, vitamins, minerals, glucose, protein and other valuable substances. Besides, it provides an immediate skin moisturizing effect and restores skin barrier functions, preventing water loss and damage.
Containing a high amount of B complex vitamins, the component works as an activator of cell metabolism, stimulating oxygenation (oxygen consumption) and making skin renewal processes faster and more effective.
The mist controls lipid and protein metabolism, thus maintaining the optimal rate of skin sebum secretion and the proper level of water loss. These properties help the mist prevent oily glare and exert a mattifying effect.
Polysaccharides included in the mist formula contribute to a more distinct rejuvenating effect: they activate glycosaminoglycans found deep inside the epidermis, and this helps collect and retain moisture closer to the outer layer of the dermis. As a consequence, the skin is firmer, and the wrinkles are less visible, being “pushed out” from within.
AQUALIZER PRO is a powerful antioxidant which aims at the elimination of the effects of environmental stressors, protects the skin from pollution and stress, tones up and helps fight photodamage (when applied in combination with other products).
The component stimulates the activity of fibroblasts — cells participating in the synthesis of collagen and elastin, structural proteins of the skin. Normalization and support of epidermal cell regeneration processes allows to refine the stratum corneum structure, contributing to the improvement of skin barrier function.
Clinical trials to assess effectiveness
Two confirmation trials were conducted to evaluate the treatment action of the component: a test to assess its effectiveness against wrinkles (evening out of the skin) and a test to evaluate the component’s effectiveness at preventing moisture loss.
Clinical trials were performed using a specialized Moritex Facial Stage DM-3 analysis system (which is able to detect the smallest skin defects) and have proved the component‘s effectiveness at fighting wrinkles, including fine lines around the eye area.
the area of wrinkles area
reduced by 38%
decreased by 53%
In the course of a trial performed to assess the ability to prevent transepidermal water loss, the component has proven effective in replenishing dehydrated skin. The product was applied onto rough dehydrated skin, and after a week of application the amount of transepidermal water loss has decreased and the condition of the skin has improved.
How to use
From a distance of 20 cm spray the serum mist onto your face, neck and décolleté. Make sure to prevent the mist from getting onto the mucous membranes of the eyes and mouth. The serum can be applied during the day over makeup as many times as necessary, or you can apply it onto the cleansed skin in the morning and (or) in the evening. To achieve a long-lasting effect, apply the mist not less than twice a day.
Do not use with skin damages, oedema, eczema, irritation and inflammation. If individual intolerance to any of the ingredients is suspected, or if discomfort or irritation occurs, stop using the product and consult your dermatologist. Make sure to prevent the skincare product from getting into your eyes. If the product has gotten into your eyes, wash it away immediately with plenty of water. Do not store the product at very high or low temperatures, keep away from direct sunlight. Store in places inaccessible for children.
