BIO & PHYTO PEELINGS are based on the use of a natural ingredient called Spongilla fluviatilis. It is a silicon freshwater sponge with unique biological and therapeutic characteristics. The sponge itself consists of microscopic needles (spicules) that contain trace elements that are biocompatible with the human body – silicon, phosphorus and lime. Due to their size and structure, spicules are able to penetrate the dermis without hindrance and cause a chain of various biochemical reactions in all its layers. Subsequently, spicules disintegrate under the action of skin enzymes and trigger defense mechanisms – immunity, while increasing the level of leukocytes. Also, in the composition of the sponge there is a unique protein called spongin, which is not found anywhere else in nature.
Spongin is similar to silk protein and has biocompatibility with human proteins. it moisturizes, nourishes, protects against harmful environmental influences and regulates the level of melanin in the skin. Spongin also contains a large amount of iodine, which participates in metabolic processes and accelerates the processes, providing antibacterial and anti-inflammatory action.
Spongilla fluviatilis promotes biogenic, non-chemical, exfoliation of dead cells of the epidermis.
Depending on the tasks and using certain preparations and methods of therapy, peelings can be adjusted in terms of the depth of exposure from superficial to deep.
