There are no dull moments when it comes to Syrene Aqua.
WHAT ACTUALLY MAKES AN INGREDIENT ACTIVE?
Put simply, an active ingredient has a ‘treatment’ effect. When the ingredient is used on the skin, it performs a therapeutic or beneficial function Active ingredients provides skincare products with a claim that it does something and actually works, for example ‘helps protect skin from free radicals.’ When developing formulas for skincare products, a lot of time and effort goes into this and active ingredients are purposefully combined with others, to create a unique product, but most importantly, the combination of actives in each formula all work in synergy with each other, to deliver a specific result.
