Kalliope Special Care Hands®

Cosmeceutics Consumer Healthcare

Kalliope Special Care hands is a lotion based on a specific and harmonized combination of red palm oil, squalene, omega-3 and -6 fatty acids, hydrolyzed wheat proteins, Mimosa Tenuiflora and hyaluronic acid. 

Kalliope Special Care hands is recommended to preserve the functional properties of the hands’ skin, maintaining a good appearance and enhancing your your self-perception.

Kalliope Special Care hands is based on the combination of six natural substances that consider the specific needs of the hand’s skin. The red palm oil sustains all the skin compartments: epidermis, collagen/elastin, vessels and dermal cells. Mimosa tenuiflora protects endothelial vessels (mainly endothelial joints). Squalene protects the epidermis, which is subject to highly forced turnover and extreme oxidation. The addition of the fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6 allows cells to recover efficiently, while hydrolysed wheat proteins are a source of sulfated amino acids, group B vitamins and trace elements, which are important for fibroblast cell regeneration.


Scientific Background

Hands represent body portions that require different specific treatment than those usually undertaken for face and neck. As they are subject to multiple daily stresses a significant intervention is needed to maintain skin elasticity, resistance to daily physical and chemical stresses, promoting cellular turnover of the skin. One essential characteristic of the hands is skin elasticity. The skin must gently follow muscle activity and elegantly contain the interwoven surface vessels without compressing them, so that they can perform their function. Moreover, the hand’s skin adapts to hypertrophy and callousness while maintaining heat sensitivity and tactile perception. There are several natural substances able to protect these functions, but they have to be specifically and harmonically combined in order to be effective.
