The difference between facial and body skin
The skin around the eyes is even thinner and more delicate and needs appropriate treatments. The epidermis (the outer layer of skin) is normally 0.1 mm thick; around the eyes it varies between 0 and 0.5 mm.
Face and body protective products: formulation differences.
Face protection products:
Functional actives: anti-photoaging, antioxidant, moisturizing, protective, SPF, booster, tan equalizing, non-comedogenic, with studies related to use on the face.
- Anti photo aging effect, is a different concept than anti-aging (chrono aging).
Photoaging: refers to the damage induced by prolonged exposure to the sun's rays. The effects can be of two types:
- Usage pleasantness: facial sunscreen with richer or more evanescent textures, tested for smoothness and spreadability on the face, also ideal as a makeup base.
Body protection products:
- Functional actives: tan uniformers, nourishing and emollient plant oils, antioxidants, vaso-protective actives (legs and capillaries)
- Ease of use: textures ideal for gliding over the body, easily spreadable but softer than the face, able to reach every part even with a quick massage.
