Global skincare brand Environ has launched its new Youth+ BioBotanical Revival Masque to its product portfolio. The mask aims to create visibly luminous, younger and revitalised skin through a combination of ingredients; Asiatic, mandelic and lactic acids.
According to the company, the formulation lowers the pH of the skin to help promote growth and hydration, rather than peeling. The Asiatic acid, derived from the Centella plant, aims to stimulate growth factors in the skin for skin regeneration; the lactic acid aims to target the lightening of uneven skin tone and, according to the company, mandelic acid has been included in the product for its anti-ageing properties.
Environ founder, plastic surgeon Dr Des Fernandes, said, “My research has shown that, by using selected, less aggressive acids that function at the surface and cause only mild exfoliation, one can leave them in contact with the skin for prolonged periods and, in that way, cause a pH change in the epidermis. This stimulates the keratinocytes to release various growth factors which causes a reduction of fine wrinkles, tightening of skin, more youthful looking skin and reduction of pigmented marks.”
