Active ingredients and their properties
Biotulin contains spilanthol, a local soothing ingredient that is obtained from extract of the plant acmella oleracea (paracress). It reduces muscle contractions and relaxes facial features. Up to 25% of crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, glabella folds between the eyebrows and nasolabial folds are visibly smoothed within just one hour of use*.
Hyaluronic acid supports the effectiveness by additionally padding the skin and supporting collagenous and elastic fibres. Its skin-tightening and smoothing effect is immediately visible.
Grape seed oil
Grape seed oil is obtained from the crushed seeds of grapes (vitis vinifera) via pressing and extraction. It has exceptional antioxidant properties due to its polyphenol and tocopherol content. These are among the most effective free radical catchers that nature has to offer. Its active antioxidant ingredients are 20 times stronger than vitamin C and 50 times stronger than vitamin E, slowing down the skin cell ageing process, so that the skin preserves its youthful, fresh, and healthy appearance.
Shea butter is a fat obtained from kernels of the shea tree’s fruit. Due to its wide range of ingredients, shea butter has a positive impact on the skin’s moisture content. It also has rehydrating, soothing, and smoothing properties. Shea butter protects the skin from environmental influences and is particularly suitable for dry skin care.
Squalane is a clear, odourless, low viscosity lipid. This is the saturated variant of the skin’s own squalene, which is an essential component of the skin’s own hydrolipid film (protective acid mantle). The spreadability of squalane on the skin is outstanding. It penetrates very quickly and produces a very soft, silky, and non-greasy feeling to the skin.
