Summer Must-Have - These beauty gems should be in every beach bag and make-up case.
Library of components
A natural antioxidant and the main antioxidant in human skin. The antioxidant slows the process of skin ageing, relieves inflammation and stimulates cell respiration, making the skin more supple and elastic. Vitamin E strengthens the protective effects of other antioxidants and reduces skin irritation, so your skin looks youthful and healthy.
Vitamin Р (rutin)
An antioxidant that slows ageing processes in the body. Vitamin Р prevents the formation of free radicals, which damage various structures in the cells and body. Vitamin Р also strengthens capillaries. It is used in cosmetic products as a component that prevents acne and reduces swelling.
One of the main components in synthetic collagen and the regenerative processes in the skin. It improves skin’s tone and prolongs its youthfulness, preventing the development of wrinkles and keeping skin taut, reducing melanogenesis.
Elements present in our body in very small amounts. They are involved in metabolic processes throughout the body, including in skin cells. Microelements participate in almost 300 metabolic processes in the skin cells, increasing the skin’s regenerative capacity, improving its texture and colour, and actively rejuvenating the skin.
Retinol (active form of vitamin A)
Vital to our body to develop and support skin in its normal condition, when all processes in the skin’s cells are balanced and occurring naturally. Due to its unique ability to influence all living skin cells, vitamin A is sometimes called the vitamin normalizer. Retinol accelerates the skin cells’ regenerative process, regulating the process of intercellular exchange and increasing the production of the skin’s collagen. Retinol supports the skin’s natural elasticity and is one of the vital ingredients for maintaining youthful skin.
2. Anti-ageing components
Bio-extract of rose
Rose petal extract, an ingredient in creams, improves skin respiration and smoothes out wrinkles.
A natural component that increases the suppleness of skin. Raffermine acts on two levels. Firstly, it normalises synthesis of components in the skin that are responsible for its suppleness and elasticity. Secondly, the function of structural elements in our skin. Raffermine makes our skin more elastic, improving its tone, and smoothing out fine wrinkles. It is an effective ingredient for preventing crow’s feet.
Plant proteins that increase the suppleness of skin.
Chemical compounds that play a key role in all vital processes. They are the ‘structural material’, regulating the body’s exchange process. Amino acids are used in cosmetics to improve the skin’s water balance and stimulate collagen production. Amino acids in cosmetics combat the signs of skin ageing.
Strengthen skin’s natural renewal by increasing the production of ceramides and epidermal proteins.
Plant proteins that have a high affinity with the skin’s bioflora. They increase the skin’s suppleness and elasticity.
The innovative unique liquid form of collagen, the protein responsible for the elasticity and suppleness of skin. Due to its unique structure, liquid collagen can penetrate into the deep skin layers and renew skin’s youthfulness. Liquid collagen increases the synthesis of the skin’s own collagen fibres. Liquid collagen decreases both fine and deep wrinkles and helps to combat the negative effect of gravity (sagging skin). Acting on the microcellular matrix, this component increases skin’s elasticity and reduces skin fatigue, making skin more taut, giving you youthful and radiant skin for longer.
A cosmetic component that improves energy exchange between skin cells and strengthens its defense. It supplies energy that is vital for the synthesis of key proteins in the skin –collagen and elastic. Creatine provides protection and minimises the signs of premature ageing and stress. Creatine is effective in reducing the first signs of ageing: it minimises fine lines, makes skin tone more even, firmer and improves skin regeneration.
Tightens and firms the facial contours due to the production of the skin’s own bio lifters: proteins of fibrillin and fibronectin.
Has a healing, moisturising and smoothing effect and supports the renewal of skin cells. The application of pro-vitamin B5 has a beneficial effect on skin: it strengthens skin’s barrier function, smoothes and improves the appearance of mature skin. Due to its smoothing effect, pro-vitamin B5 is often used in anti-ageing products as an effective ingredient to prevent skin ageing.
Plant proteins that increase the suppleness and elasticity of skin.
Improves the skin’s barrier function, stimulating differentiation of keratinocytes and synthesis of intercellular lipids. Verbena extract restores the natural self-humidifying function of the skin.
Extract of undaria algae
Extract of undaria algae (MATRIGENICS) boosts synthesis of 14 genes responsible for the synthesis of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, thereby minimising wrinkles and improving the micro-relief of your skin. Sea algae contain vitamins А, В1, В2, С, Е, D, fucoxanthin, iodine, sulphur amino acids which stimulate and regenerate skin cells.
Extract of quinine fungus
Extract of quinine fungus - an extract of fungus from the basidium fungi family which grow on the trunk of larch trees. The fungal fruit contains up to 16% agaricic acid (agaricin), mannitol, organic acids, fumaric acids, ricin, citric and malic acids and resins (30-80%). It moisturises the skin and minimises pores.
A protein, similar in its properties to collagen. Elastin forms the basis of connective tissue, its fibres are very elastic. Its function is to return skin to its initial state after being stretched or pressed. Elastin is used in anti-ageing cosmetics as the main ingredient that restores skin’s suppleness and elasticity and protects skin cells.
3. Natural oils

It has the highest natural concentration of polyphenols and unsaturated fatty acids (oleic acid 82%, linoleic acid 3%), essential for youthful skin. It has excellent natural stability and natural antioxidative potential; evident in its anti-inflammatory and wound-healing effect, suppressing the release of a wide spectrum of inflammatory mediators and having a calming effect on sensitive skin. It ensures good regeneration of the damaged epithelial barrier, which prevents skin ageing. It is very effective at smoothing wrinkles by increasing the synthesis of collagen I and inhibiting the activity of metal matrix proteinase ММР-1. It restores the skin barrier, reducing transepidermal loss of moisture and strengthening the effect by giving the skin a more even microrelief and greater radiance.
5. Protecting your skin
The complex is based on BioEcolia®, as well as vitamins Е and С.
