Product knowledge; Rehance Mist

IMG_0038Rehance Mist is a deeply hydrating and replenishing liquid that occludes to the skin in a unique way.  Through the incorporation of a heavier water (D2O), when spritzed on to the skin, it plumps the cells filling them with the nutrients that enables it to stay moist and, therefore, functionally younger.

D2O, Deuterium Oxide, is one of nature’s quirky little compounds, a water containing extra hydrogen.  This extra hydrogen lends some weight; D2O is about 10% heavier than normal water.  Applied to the skin, this weight allows it to flow through the tissue slower than normal water so the skin maintains water content more effectively.  The major benefit of this is that it keeps the glucose in the skin flowing rather than drying and crystallizing which cuts and fractures the cells.  Fractured cells show up as aging in the skin.

Added to the mist to be carried into and held in the tissue by the D20, is the hydrator Hyaluronic Acid (or sodium hyaluronate).  This water-retention compounds occurs naturally in the skin cells.  But as we age our body does not manufacture it as much, so aging and flattened, sagging skin is in part a result of this loss.  Reintroducing and replenishing this loss gives the skin an immediately plumper smoother look while supporting the skins functions of youth.  Marine minerals extracted from algae also added aid in the moisture retention.

Because water is a natural solvent, aqueous solutions have the ability to penetrate ingredients deeper into the skin than creams or lotions can, so this heavier water mist provides a great vehicle for additional additives.  Lupine flower seed peptides (mini proteins) are added to help stimulate the skin to produce more collagen protein, the protein that firms and is the supportive structure of skin.  Elderberry extract is added to for its ability to act as a scavenger of mutant free-radical cells that age the skin.  It also helps fight yeast and fungal infections in the skin.  Along with this extract is licorice root, horse chestnut, calendula, oat straw and marrubium herbal extracts each of them acting to sooth, strengthen and brighten the skin.  Water soluble vitamin B5, panthenol, is also added to sooth and hold water content in place.

One of the principles esthetic formulators like myself consider is that to really get treatment into the skin you need to use small particles and a vehicle to help penetrate then.  This mist accomplishes that and it a great first step to any anti-aging skin routine.  Consider using this mist if:

  • You have chronically dry skin.
  • You are traveling.  The body looses 8 oz. of water in each hour traveled in an airplane.
  • You are prone to itchy rashy skin; have dermatitis, seborrhea…
  • Your skin is injured due to acne, sunburns or otherwise.
  • You want to add some extra anti-aging benefits into your skin routine.
