This night mask counteracts the harmful effects of digital pollution that cause signs of fatigue and premature aging. The formulation includes Synchrolife ™, which is largely able to reverse the effects of the negative effects of blue light, balancing the production of key substances associated with circadian rhythms, restores radiance, tone and elasticity of the skin. PoreTect ™ is an eco-formulated active ingredient that counteracts age-related pore sagging, improves skin texture and promotes a satin-like glow, soluble in oil. Crodafos ™ MCK stabilizes base emollients such as Crodamol™ GTIS , Crodamol ™ SFX , Crodamol ™ SS and Syncrowax ™ HRC . Crodarom ® Manuka Honey , thanks to its soothing effect, adds softness to the recipe, ideal for sensitive and delicate skin. At night, this cream mask repairs damaged skin.
