|Biotherm White Detox Cellular Hydra-Brightening Lotion is cool and refreshing. Effectively prepares skin for the whitening treatment. With a combination of phytomarine extract, Pure Thermal Plankton and MnSOD, the lotion intensely hydrates the skin so that its water level is kept in balance.|
Biotherm White D-TOX Series
Daily aggressions from airborne pollution work to disrupt our skin’s natural balance and contribute to the appearance of a gray-colored veil,dulling the complexion and encouraging brown spots and premature ageing.Simultaneously,melanin residues on its surface exacerbates this dark veil.In 2012 Biotherm launched White D-Tox range which has dual efficacy–intense detoxifying and gently effective whitening in-one.Beyond whitening,Biotherm also tackles the underlying cause of dull skin-pollution by eliminating the dull gray veil created by toxins and pigments that shadows the complexion.now whitening goes further.
This dual action formula taps the powerful antioxidant powers of Venuceane®, derived from Thermus thermophilus.On the skin’s surface, the Venuceane®-enriched White D-Tox complex helps to neutralize epidermal toxins. Epidermal cells are like “de-polluted” and purified of the toxins and melanin residues which tarnish the complexion.As a result,skin is healthy radiant as from inside out.Complexion is left clear,revealing its rosy transparency.
What is Thermus thermophilus?
-an aquatic&extremophile (thermal resisting) micro-organism that has developed extraordinary detoxifying capacities to survive the toxic environs of underwater hydrothermal vents,2km below the ocean’s surface in Guayamas bay,California.
-faces daily challenges include pressure as high as 200 bars, heats of around 75°C, little oxygen,no sunlight plus an environment that’s polluted by toxic substances including free radicals and the heavy metals naturally released by the hydrothermal vents.
-manages to survive in such extreme conditions by producing functional proteins and enzymes tolerant to high pressure and temperature, a veritable defense system adapted to protecting itself from harsh conditions.
These incredible anti-pollution capabilities transfer to the active that is able to boost cells’ natural detoxifying capacities.Venuceane®has a strong detoxifying effect on key ROS(the intermediary of the majority of daily aggressions) including superoxide anion and hydrogen peroxide, which contribute to melanogenesis(synthesis of melanin).It can reduce lipoperoxidation, the oxidative process that damages cellular membranes.It also protects cell membranes even under conditions of stress (heat).
EXTRACTED USING BIOTECHNOLOGY
An active composed of Extremozymes (enzymes from extremophiles), Venuceane® is obtained using biotechnology. Fermentation is conducted at high temperature, in a medium adapted to the stem, to reach the optimal quantity of biomass to extract active molecules. Following fermentation, a process of separation via micro-filtration allows the thermo stable enzymatic complex to be purified and concentrated.
This detoxifying power is combined with a new generation whitening ingredients:
Palmaria palmata extract(pic taken from wiki)
-coming from wild red algae found in north-east and north-west coast of the Atlantic Ocean -rich in proteins, vitamins,minerals and fibers, diminishes dendricity(the capacity of the cells to develop dendrites which enable melanin transfer to keratinocytes.)
Actyl C or Ethyl Vitamin C
Other ingredients including:
Pure Thermal Plankton
-stimulates skin cells’ natural defense system,
