Matt Cream satisfies the needs of acne complexion. It controls oil production, cleans skin, alleviates irritations. When used, Matt Cream makes your skin smooth, hydrated and even — minus sheen effect. Additionally, the cream contains a sun filter. Our product limits skin shine and prevents creation of eczemas. The mix of Hyaluronic Acid, Azeloglycine, Vitamin B3, and Zinc Oxide not only reduces pores and matts, but also hydrates perfectly. It even limits the number of blackheads and boosts up healing of existing ones. The presence of carrageenan gently face lifts and protects skin against external factors, while leaving skin smooth and nice in touch.
The cream may be used during the day and night.
Hyaluronic Acid protects the skin against free radicals, keeps water and prevents collagen degradation in the epidermis. The ability to bind water in the epidermis prevents the creation of wrinkles and improves skin elasticity.
Zinc Oxide is a natural mineral which is at the same time a pigment. In cosmetics, it is used as a natural UV filter, protects against the effects of UV radiation. Apart from the sun protection, Zinc Oxide accelerates healing of injuries, ulcers and irritations. It has got anti-bacterial as well as tensing properties and helps treating acne together with removing inflammations.
Azeloglycine is effective against bacteria, acne and excessive production of sebum — it decreases the number of micrococcuses and intrafollicular propionic bacteria and reduces free fatty acids in the skin sebum, while maintaining the quality as well as the composition of sebum or morphology of sebaceous glands. Azeloglycine is used for the treatment of increased skin pigmentation caused by the increased activity or excessive effect of melanocytes. It includes melanoderma, malignant freckles and excessive photochemical pigmentation. Azeloglycine is considered a competitive and reversible inhibitor of tyrosinase, which is a crucial enzyme for melanogenesis.
Vitamin B3 (niacinamide) used in cosmetics slows down ageing by stimulating the production of collagen and ceramides, therefore, it is a perfect product for ageing and mature skins. It regulates the level of skin moisturising, improves elasticity, brightens discolourations, and prevents the creation of new ones. As an ingredient of products for acne skin, it reduces the sebum synthesis in sebaceous glands and the creation of blackheads. It also narrows down the ostia of sebaceous glands.
Carrageenan (a vegetable silicone from algae), also referred to as oligogeline, is a red algae extract (chondrus crispus, carrageen moss). This substance provides the skin with microcollagen which reduces wrinkles, slows down the ageing process and improves firmness. It contains minerals such as magnesium and calcium which balance the skin mineral distribution. It maintains the optimal moisture level of the epidermis' horny layer and is a natural sun filter protecting against UVA radiation.
Carrageenan contains vitamin A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C and PP which are crucial for proper skin functioning. Its anti-inflammatory properties accelerate healing of injuries and improve smoothness.
It is a perfect ingredient for hair cosmetics (shampoos, conditioners and masks). It evens the hair surface, strengthens it and improves its softness.
Carrageenan is also a thickening agent which is used in cheese and light emulsions.
It increases slipperiness which makes cosmetic distribution easier and improves its durability while intensively moistening and nourishing the skin. It is also non- comedogenic, therefore, it may be used in cosmetics for acne complexion, including complexion with increased seborrhoea.

It absorbs excessive oil and leaves skin matt and silky for a very long time. It shows anti-bacterial and anti-acne properties, supports healing of injuries, alleviates irritations and controls oil production.
