Kalliope line: Antioxidant Cosmeceutics

Cosmeceutics

Cosmeceutics aims to "prevent" skin events from taking a turn for the worse towards bothersome symptoms (swelling, dryness, pain, etc.) or decay by bringing about any necessary corrections.
Cosmeceutics entails isolating the active ingredients or complexes which support normal physiological processes, leaving them as vital and reactive as possible.
To understand the difference between treatment and cosmeceutics, we can take the example of sunburn. Once sunburn has occurred, it is necessary to use oral anti-inflammatory drugs and/or antihistamines and apply a local ointments containing steroids or antihistamines: this is treatment. If we wish to prevent sunburn, we must apply a good sunscreen before exposure, with the right amount of antioxidants: this is cosmeceutics.

From the cosmeceutical point of view, the skin is seen in a functional way through the basic concepts of physiology. The points where the physiological processes may be supported are identified and the complexes and active ingredients needed to provide this support are determined.

Red Palm Oil

Red Palm Oil is considered the heart of the Kalliope line since it has been isolated, studied, patented and found to keep the four fundamental skin compartments in working order. It is a sort of "basic maintenance" component which can be supplemented with specific active ingredients for particular skin areas.
Red Palm Oil is extracted from the fruit which grows in bunches on Eleais guineensis. The extraction process consists of simply pressing the fruit. Therefore the oil produced does not undergo chemical extraction with solvents. As a consequence, it is a natural compound, consisting of a series of lipid components with skin nutrient action (palmitic acid, oleic acid, linoleic acid and vegetable sterols), organic components with antioxidant action (carotenoids, tocopherols and coenzyme Q10) and, lastly, components with eutrophic action (saccharides and phytosterols).

Kalliope Line

The Kalliope line consists of a full set of cosmeceutics dedicated to solve the oxidant problems and the particular needs of the skin. The base of Kalliope is the Red Palm oil, extracted from Eleais guineensis that is able to interact with all skin compartments, from epidermis to collagen, vessels and cells of dermis. The exceptional activity of Red Palm oil is combined with specific antioxidants able to act in specific areas of the body: from face, to eyes, from hands to legs...

The Kalliope line sees personal care first and foremost as a preferential route to elevating the femininity and uniqueness of each woman, regardless of her age or beauty.
