The Care Chemicals unit at Cognis has launched a new product concept for professional skin care onto the market. The so-called Polymoist® Marine mask made of chitosan is a high-quality alternative to the proven collagen fiber masks that Cognis markets under the Polymoist Mask brand.
Polymoist Marine is a soft, velvety nonwoven which, although free of collagen, provides the entire action spectrum of collagen. Chitosan provides both the matrix and the active ingredient for the mask. This is what makes Polymoist Marine so valuable. The product is exceptionally skin compatible, as it contains no preservatives or perfume additives.
Polymoist Marine is suitable for every skin type and condition. It especially provides beauticians with versatile application possibilities for maximum client benefit, as it can be easily combined with other skin care products and treatment methods. Polymoist Marine is especially suitable, because of its anti-irritant properties, for use on sensitive or stressed skin, after sunbathing or hair removal for example. Scientific tests carried out by the renowned Laboratoires Sérobiologiques have demonstrated that Polymoist Marine has a significant wrinkle reduction action even after just one treatment. Polymoist Marine is therefore a real marine alternative to the popular collagen fiber mask.
