Why Alginate masks?

Alginate mask is a natural beauty treatment that provides a fast and impressive result, erasing fine wrinkles, tightening skin, increasing its elasticity, leaving it fresh, supple and radiant.   

The main component of the alginate mask is algin (sodium alginate) or sodium salt of alginic acid – a compound obtained from marine algae. Another necessary ingredient is calcium sulfate.  When mixed with water or water-based gel, these two powdered compounds form hydrocolloid gel, which become a depot for active ingredients, allowing their slow migration into skin.

Since alginate mask is well saturated with water, it quickly restores skin hydration, which in turn results in remarkable improvement of skin’s appearance – it becomes smooth, fresh, youthful and radiant. At the same time, this method of express moisturizing is superior to paraffin masks or mineral oils, since algin allows easy oxygen exchange and help absorb and remove toxins from the skin surface.   

Alginate masks contain seaweeds, which stimulate collagen synthesis, improve skin’s water holding capacity, and supply it with essential minerals and microelements. Since seaweeds speed up fat metabolism, they are indispensable in anti-cellulite programs and for body and face sculpturing.

Another name for alginate masks – modeling or plastifying masks. It means that soon after applying, the mask solidifies, following face contour. The mask remains plastic, so it doesn’t cause any discomfort and peels off easily in a single layer.

Alginate masks can be used for all types of skin – normal, dry, oily, combination, mature. Alginate body wraps are ideal anti-cellulite treatment. Also alginate masks can be applied to local body areas for treatment of “orange peel skin”.

Alginate masks can be further enhanced by a variety of natural additives: powdered herbal extracts, different types of clay, essential oils etc. With special additives, alginate masks can be targeted to solve various skin problems. Even though additives are important, it is worth mentioning that any type of alginate masks would effectively revitalize and moisturize skin, improve circulation, tighten loose skin, reduce pore size, lessen puffiness and calm down skin after aggressive skin treatments.

Alginate masks can be combined with any active formulation, facilitating absorption of active components into the skin, and therefore can be used in many types of beauty treatments and procedures. They work well with photorejuvenation, mesotherapy, myostimulation, ultrasound etc.
