Why alginate?

Why alginate?

Have you seen our socials lately? have you seen those crazy peel off masks? Did u know they are not just for the socials - they are our original alginate masks we now use on you in clinic! We are always looking for the next development in science and in beauty, what is going to help us get you the best result.

There may be many new serums and treatments on the horizon and the pharmacy shelf but know the basics exfoliate and hydrate. The alginate mask post peel is like no other hense our girls are all over it. The Alginate based peel off mask is otherwise known as the rubber mask. The mask itself is infused with skin corrective peptides and anti - inflamatory actives which makes it the perfect compliment for the skin after an enzyme peel.

Alginates are natural polysaccharides extracted from seaweed. They are versatile ingredients as they are both cold - soluble and cold-setting and in the gel are also heat stable. The concentrated actives in the mask are delivered into the skin immediately after a peel to instantly refresh, cool, soothe and comfort, tighten enlarged pores, increase oxygen supply and generally improve the skins health complexion and radiance.

Apart from looking A-mazingly creative and feeling beyond hydrated when it peels off there are so many clinical reasons we are now favouring the alginate.

Why use an alginate above any other mask?

  • Cools and refreshes the skin post peel
  • Has anti inflammatory action
  • Has lifting effect
  • Tightens enlarged pores
  • Improves blood circulation
  • Increases the supply of oxygen 
  • Promotes the resorption of stagnant spots from acne pimples
  • Has a drain effect (improves blood flow and lymph flow)
  • Balances the acid mantle
  • Serves as a good prevention of premature aging
  • They can be useful for all skin types; normal, combination, dry, oily
  • Used for care of the aged skin
  • However allergies should be careful if they have hypersensitivity to the components of algae.

Here we used a wide range of alginate masks that suit each and every skin concern. When we have a skin consultation we not only customise the serums and peels that we use on your skin but also the alginate mask. These are honestly under used in the industry. We believe so much in the benefits of the alginate mask we use them above any other and would always opt to use an alginate if we are truly wanting to get results from a skin transformation.
