The Hydrafine range is the ultimate daily facial skin care range for normal and combination skin types. This exceptional range provides the perfect balance of moisture for normal and combination skin, and will leave yours refined and beautiful.
The word “hydra” has its origin in the word “hydration” and it means to restore moisture, to water or to drench your skin. The word “fine”, when linked to the word “refine”, means to go back to its beautiful or delicate state. Hydrafine embodies delicate and fine texture and aims to provide you with both.
This range includes three state of the art intelligent active ingredients that have been carefully researched and selected to bring the ultimate solution for normal/ combination skin.
Marinematt, a sophisticated extract produced by marine plankton isolated and harvested from the temperate waters of the Aber-Wrac’h on the northern coast of Brittany, France. An aber, or estuary, is a river valley that is flooded by the sea. They provide a rich, varied and unique ecosystem in which organisms develop in both sea and fresh water simultaneously.
Marinematt, derived from marine biotechnology, has no land-based equivalent and represents a new and original molecule with unrivalled cellular activation properties.
This is truly a wonder-ingredient from the sea as Marinematt has a unique structure which produces an immediate mattifying agent, absorbing excess sebum on the surface of the skin. It is astonishingly light and respects oily and combination skin. The result is an overall reduction in shine on the forehead, cheeks and chin within one hour of using the Hydrafine products. Through clinical tests, Marinematt has been proven through clinical tests to have a remarkable ability to reduce shine, while maintaining hydration levels in the skin, rendering it a highly intelligent active ingredient.
Moistbalance, a blend of sophisticated natural skin moisturisers, rebalances the hydration status of the skin, replenishing the skin’s moisture levels, particularly on the dry cheek areas.
Green Rooibos Extract, containing significantly more antioxidants than fermented Rooibos, has powerful anti-ageing properties that help protect the skin, giving a more youthful look. Green Rooibos is also rich in alpha hydroxy acids and zinc, encouraging healthy skin and protecting against damaging UV rays.
What is Combination Skin?
Combination skin occurs when two or more different skin types are prevalent on the face at the same time. Combination skin can at times be dry in some areas – usually on the cheeks – and oily in other; on the T-zone – over the nose, forehead, and chin. The T-zone can differ substantially from person to person – from a very slim zone to a wide extended area.
The oilier parts of combination skin are caused by an over-production of sebum or oil, while the drier parts of combination skin are caused by a lack of sebum and a corresponding lipid deficiency. Numerous people have this skin type and it can be challenging to care for optimally as the cheeks need moisture while the nose, forehead and chin need the oiliness to be regulated.
Add to that seasonal influences on the skin’s condition, and one soon has many skin challenges to address simultaneously. The oilier parts of combination skin are caused by an overproduction of sebum or oil. The drier parts of combination skin are caused by a lack of sebum and a corresponding lipid deficiency.
