This naturally derived form of hyaluronic acid is obtained by biofermentation after several purification and precipation steps without any chemical solvent so as not to alter its molecular structure. As essential component of the skin, hyaluronic acid retains water durably in the skin cells and forms a non-occlusive moisturizing film. The cells then play the role of mini water reservoirs, thus preventing dehydration and limiting premature ageing of the skin. You will find it in our Eye Patches.
ORGANIC ALOE VERA
The key plant extract found in all our masks : selected for its moisturizing, soothing and protective properties.
Aloe Vera is a leading active ingredient in natural cosmetics. Its high concentration of saccharides such as mannose and galactose make it an excellent humectant. The Aloe Vera extract therefore plays an active role in ensuring the skin’s moisture balance. Aloe Vera also has cell renewal properties. Thanks to its high content in amino acids (molecules capable of supporting the skin's regenerative functions such as protein synthesis), it supports the natural production of collagen and elastin. To top it all, it contains a series of "beautiful skin" vitamins (A, B, C). You know understand why, at Les Poulettes Paris, we are rather major Aloe fans! You'll find it in the Revitalizing & Boosting Mask, Radiant Glow Express Mask, Pollution Shield Mask, the Age Defying Plumping Mask and the Hydra Fresh Mask.
