This purifying, multi-functional charcoal masque, formulated with Japanese charcoal and special botanicals to help absorb pollutant impurities, normalizes and hydrates the skin, leaving it feeling revitalized and smooth.
Our skin’s exposure to Environmental pollutants (vehicle fumes, heavy metals, harmful chemicals, and other pollutants in combination with ultraviolet (UV) blue light and infrared irradiation - a major emerging urban pollutant) is unfortunately on the rise. When these particles come in contact with our skin they create oxidative stress, which results in a destructive chain of free radicals, leading to increased signs of skin sensitivity, premature skin aging, skin discoloration, dryness, dullness, and roughness.
The rising, diverse assault of pollution on skin has led to the innovation of Environ’s intelligent anti-pollution formulations; a complete approach focusing on the benefits of prevention, repair and building of the benefits of the skin’s natural resilience to protect itself.
