Why Alginate masks?
Alginate mask is a natural beauty treatment that provides a fast and impressive result, erasing fine wrinkles, tightening 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 hydrocolloid gel, which become a depot for active ingredients, allowing their slow migration into skin.
Since alginate mask is well saturated with water, it quickly restores skin hydration, which in turn results in remarkable improvement of skin’s appearance – it becomes smooth, fresh, youthful and radiant. 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.
Another name for alginate masks – modeling or plastifying masks. It means that soon after applying, the mask solidifies, following face contour. The mask remains plastic, so it doesn’t cause any discomfort and peels off easily in a single layer.
Alginate masks can be used for all types of skin – normal, dry, oily, combination, mature.
