A boosting serum that offers immediate thirst quenching hydration to dehydrated skin and superior benefits for acne prone skins as well. Enriched with Melon Extract, skin identical Ceramides, Niacinamide and Hyaluronic Acid.
Melon Extract contains 95% water, mucilages and vitamins and is capable of softening and moisturizing irritated and parched skin. Melon extract increases moisture content by 54% after 1 hour of application and provide long term moisturising benefits for hours after application.
Hyaluronic Acid keeps skin moist and elastic and is used to hydrate the skin and smooth out fine lines. Hyaluronic acid holds 1000 times it’s own weight in water. Hyaluronic Acid production in the skin reduces as we age, resulting in loss of elasticity which develops as wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid plays an important role in tissue regeneration and prevention of scarring.
Not all Hyaluronic Acid is created equally.
The molecular weight of our Hyaluronic Acid is 50kDA. This is a low weight molecular Hyaluronic Acid which ensures maximum skin penetration without side effects. Larger weights do not penetrate the skin as readily. Weights less than 20kDA have been shown to induce an inflammatory response in the skin. 50kDA is the optimum molecular size for penetration and maximum regulation of gene expression
Niacinamide has been shown scientifically to increase the skins own natural ceramide Production.
SKIN IDENTICAL LIPIDS – PHOSPHOLIPIDS AND SPHINGOLIPIDS
Ceramides repair the lipid barrier of dehydrated skin. Ceramides help dry and chapped skin to build up the lipid barrier of the epidermis and ensures adequate moisturisation. The Ceramides in Roccoco’s formula are in a lamellar liquid crystalline form.
It is known that ceramide-containing formulations only produce the desired effect when they are present in lyotropic form, i.e., as lamellar liquid crystals. Topically applied Ceramides that are not in this form do not produce any effect. The lipids contained in Roccoco’s Melon Moisture Boost are present in a membranous and thus active structure.
Phytosphingosine is also shown to have benefits for acne. Phytosphingosine prevents the growth of bacteria on the skin and is highly anti-inflammatory. Combining Skin Identical Lipids who have proven scientific benefit for acne with Hyaluronic Acid, which reduces the ability of scars to form is a perfect complement.
