The second product from the Alastin™ line I want to review in a little more detail is Alastin™ Skin Nectar™ with TriHex Technology™. This was the first product Alastin™ developed and is meant to be used to treat the skin before and after aesthetic treatments. Skin Nectar™ is formulated to support the skin and to reduce inflammation and redness associated with procedures such as lasers or peels. As with all of the products with TriHex Technology™ this product contains the, patent pending, group of peptides which help to stimulate collagen and elastin.
Additionally the nectar contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients including:
- Panthenyl Triacetate- a B complex which helps with wound healing
- Naringenin- a flavonoid
- Arnica Montana Extract- an anti-inflammatory agent
- Dunaliella Salina Extract- an extract from micro algae with antioxidant properties
- Tocopherol- Vitamin E, an antioxidant
The other ingredients in the product are conditioners/lubricants/emulsifiers, solvents and thickeners. This is a silicone based face product. The silicone base helps the delivery of the active ingredients and the spread of the product. The silicone gives this product a silky feel which many people like.
Skin Nectar™ can be applied immediately after a procedure, even to open skin. It has been shown to improve healing time after subablative/ablative procedures.
This product is paraben free, cruelty free and gluten free.
