In these luxurious moisturising and revitalising facial masks, the beneficial effect of colloidal gold is supported by the intensive regenerating and nourishing activity of hydrated fish collagen and elastin. This is supplemented with ingredients such as vitamin B3 and nourishing sodium PCA and hyaluronic acid. The mask also contains soothing, rich aloe extract, and vitamin E – well-known for its rejuvenating effects and efficiency in fighting free radicals.
Gold – has been treasured since the beginning of civilisation, and its cosmetic effect was said to be appreciated by Cleopatra. Now, nanotechnology has made gold particles the cosmetic hit of recent years. Gold slows down collagen and elastin loss, contributing to skin tissue regeneration; helping to improve firmness, smooth existing wrinkles and limit the formation of new ones. It moisturises the skin and eliminates discolouration, helping to achieve a bright and radiant complexion. Gold also has anti-inflammatory properties. Preparations containing gold have a long-lasting effect and visibly slow down the ageing process.
Natural collagen – is a protein that constitutes about 30% of the total human body protein and as much as 70% of the skin protein. With elastin it forms a flexible mesh in the dermis, which gives skin its elasticity and firmness. The quality of these protein fibres is a deciding factor in the skin’s appearance and condition. As well as helping to hold back the ageing process, collagen also helps to maintain the skin’s hydration.
Elastin – another natural protein that works with collagen to create the skin’s supporting fibre network, responsible for maintaining its suppleness, firmness and elasticity. Elastin smoothes wrinkles, regenerates and improves the vitality of the skin.
Sodium PCA – occurs naturally in the epidermis and helps to maintain the body’s proper moisture level.
Aloe – provides the skin with the compounds necessary to function properly. It strengthens the skin and restores its firmness, elasticity and healthy colour. Its extract contains naturally moisturising amino acids, vitamins A, B, C and E, and folic acid, all of which are important for the health of the skin. It nourishes the skin with calcium, sodium, potassium, manganese, chromium and zinc. Aloe extract also contains enzymes and hydroxy acids to help remove dead epidermal cells and promote regeneration, so naturally preventing skin ageing. And finally, it has astringent, mild disinfectant, anti-inflammatory and cleansing properties.
Hyaluronic acid – is a component of our tissues, including the intracellular matrix of the dermis, where it is responsible for maintaining proper hydration, keeping it supple and smooth. Over the years, the skin’s hyaluronic acid content steadily decreases, reducing the skin’s water content and making the skin rough and dry. This, along with the degradation of the collagen fibres, is the main cause of wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid can bind with up to four thousand times its own mass in water, making it a valuable moisturising agent.
Vitamin B3 – plays a crucial role in the biological processes in the skin, and stimulates the production of the lipids (mainly ceramides) that maintain the proper hydration of the skin. This makes the skin more resistant to environmental factors and reduces moisture loss. It is also highly elastic. In addition, vitamin B3 smoothes and reduces fine lines as it indirectly influences the production of collagen and stimulates the production of hyaluronic acid, resulting in an improved skin structure. Having antiglycating potential, vitamin B3 helps skin to maintain its suppleness and radiance, as well as improve skin tone and fight skin discoloration. And its antioxidant properties play an important role in the synthesis of nucleic acids to help repair damaged skin cells. Finally, vitamin B3 has an anti-inflammatory action and promotes skin regeneration, and is recommended for acne-prone and sensitive skin as it reduces sebum excessive production, the size of pores, irritation and redness.
Vitamin E – is one of the most potent of natural antioxidants. It is recommended for all skin types and is particularly aimed at mature skin. As the so-called ‘vitamin of youth’, vitamin E traps free radicals that can damage the skin, helping to prevent premature ageing and wrinkles. It also protects the epidermis from excessive drying, and helps to restore the skin’s youthful vitality and radiance. Last but not least, the anti-inflammatory and regeneration properties of vitamin E promote tissue regeneration.
There are certainly other, cheaper masks are available, containing plant collagen and parabens. Plant collagen is shown to be nowhere near as effective as natural collagen (differing in structure and not being biologically active in the same way); and Colway does not use parabens in its products.
