Sesderma looks after the youngest with the new LACTYFERRIN Kids

The new hygiene gel that cleanses and looks after the children’s skin

This year’s return to school will be unlike any that has come before. The mandatory use of masks, the adaptation of the classrooms to keep social distancing, and the availability of hydroalcoholic gel in them are measures taken to enhance safety, but many teachers and parents consider they are not enough to guarantee a safe return to school.

That’s why Sesderma, Spanish reference lab in the manufacturing and development of dermatological products, has created LACTYFERRIN Kids. This new hand hygiene gel allows to keep children’s hands clean, in addition to looking after their skin and moisturising them without causing dryness or irritation.

Why use LACTYFERRIN Kids?

The different health organisms recommend frequent hand washing using soap and water and, whenever this is not possible, to use specific gels. These sanitising gels, the so-called hydroalcoholic gels, are solutions with a 60 to 85% alcohol content, and can be very aggressive to the skin.

In fact, Dr Gabriel Serrano, dermatologist and founder of the labs, warns about the consequences of abuse and too-frequent use of gels with a high alcohol content in children: “An excessive use of hydroalcoholic gel can alter the skin barrier, thus causing dryness, dehydration, and even irritant contact dermatitis, or aggravate cases of atopic dermatitis. Alcohol can dehydrate the skin, so the application of these type of formulas that don’t have any emollient or moistening active ingredients can end up affecting the epidermis. Not only that, but their continued use can disrupt the skin, the first defensive barrier of the body, and its protective layers (acid mantle, water-lipid mantle, good bacteria, etc.).”

The innovative gel formula of LACTYFERRIN Kids delivers a silky touch and extra hydration to the children’s skin, and thanks to its low alcohol concentration, it can be used as often as necessary without causing dryness or irritation. Likewise, it maintains the skin’s lipid mantle in perfect condition, protecting and looking after the natural barrier.

Moreover, in the case of nursery schools or crèches, and of special education centres for disabled pupils, the protocol designed by the Departments of Education and Health recommends avoiding the use of hydroalcoholic gels as a precaution, given that children often put their hands in their mouth and that this product has a high alcohol percentage.*

We recommend that they wash their hands and then apply LACTYFERRIN Kids, our hand hygiene gel with lactoferrin that delivers advanced cleansing and maximum skin care.

Post-summer sun spots? How to reduce and prevent them

posted in: Featured | 0

After your summer holidays, you might notice the appearance of sun spots on your skin. Although their causes are varied, they can be triggered by genetics or hormonal changes, and especially by the sun if you haven’t used suitable sunscreen or have over-exposed your skin. Apart from causing wrinkles and lack of luminosity, the sun is to blame for most of the blemishes that appear on your forehead, cheeks, or nose.

Therefore, specialists like Dr Gabriel Serrano, dermatologist and founder of Sesderma, insist on the importance of adopting a skincare routine that includes depigmenting products.

The perfect anti-blemish routine

As previously mentioned, the sun is the main cause of skin spots, such as melasma or lentigines. Therefore, the first and most important recommendation is to avoid direct sun exposure and always use SPF50 sunscreen, even when it’s cloudy. After cleansing, your routine must include a twice-daily (morning and night) depigmenting treatment. Some complementary products can help improve and reduce the appearance of blemishes.

The AZELAC RU line, with the effective TRX formula (based on tranexamic acid), prevents sun-induced pigmentation and, in combination with active ingredients such as azelaic acid or 4-Butyl resorcinol, has a double depigmenting action: it acts directly on the source of blemishes thanks to nanotechnology, and it has a selective action thanks to its depigmenting agents.

Like most Sesderma products, AZELAC RU is formulated using nanotechnology, which guarantees deep penetration levels and high effectiveness. The combination of the products of the AZELAC RU line delivers visible results. In just eight weeks, it’s able to clarify skin spots up to 90%, reduce the depigmenting effect by 75%, and prevent the potential appearance of future blemishes*.

AZELAC RU Liposomal serum is an intensive treatment to be applied day and night. Its potent depigmenting power acts on the skin to achieve an even tone.

AZELAC RU Luminous Fluid SPF50 has been especially formulated to be used during the day. It improves the appearance of blemishes and protects the skin thanks to its SPF50. In addition, its luminous pigments can bring the skin a healthy, soft, and glowing aspect.

AZELAC RU Gel Cream is applied at night and combines the different depigmenting active ingredients included in the line, with plant-origin growth factors and retinol.

AZELAC RU SPF30 Hand Cream is specifically formulated to hydrate, regenerate, protect, and even out the skin tone of hands.

Complementary products of the depigmenting routine

ABRADERMOL Microdermabrasion cream for face and body exfoliation. A weekly exfoliation is recommended to achieve smooth and flawless skin, improve its complexion and eliminate impurities.

SENSYSES Cleanser Lightening is a lipidic-bubble cleanser with vitamin C that cleanses the skin, removes make-up, evens out the tone and restores lost luminosity.

MELASES TRX Depigmenting Gel has an intensive focal action to improve melasma. Its high tranexamic acid content combined with active ingredients like azelaic acid and 4-butyl resorcinol reduce hyperpigmentation. Its light texture in gel format is suitable for all skin types. THIOMELAN SPF15 Cream is indicated for mild pigmentation and the prevention of chloasma, hormone-induced blemishes that tend to appear during pregnancy.

SESDERMA GOLDEN OIL, a prodigy of Nature

posted in: Featured | 0

Argan oil, also known as the Moroccan liquid golden, is very popular due to its multiple properties for skin and hair

More and more people who are concerned about skincare wish to use natural-based products. Argan oil (Argania spinosa) is extracted by pressing from the fruits of the argan tree, original from Morocco, specifically from the region of Arganeraie. 35 kilos of its peculiar fruits are needed to make a litre of the precious oil, hence it’s considered one of the most expensive in the world.

The new Sesderma Golden Oil is formulated with 100% argan oil from Morocco and calendula extract, which help moisturise, revitalise and protect skin and hair, apart from many other benefits. Even though it’s an oil, it doesn’t leave a greasy sensation and absorbs quickly. It’s also used as an anti-ageing treatment, since it’s made up of fatty acids that improve skin elasticity and restore its natural luminosity.

Which are the properties of argan oil?

  • Nourishes and moisturises dehydrated skin.
  • Protects the skin against external aggressions.
  • Repairs dry and cracked skin and strengthens brittle nails.
  • Has soothing and regenerating properties.
  • Helps reduce excess oil.

How to use SESDERMA GOLDEN OIL for skin and hair

Argan oil is one of those multi-purpose products that can be used from head to toe. Its high antioxidant, essential fatty acid and vitamin E content makes argan oil one of the most beneficial oils, hence the recommendation to use it all over the body.

Sesderma Golden Oil is easy and safe to use, since it’s a natural and pure product. It’s mainly used to moisturise and soften the skin, and it’s therefore especially effective to prevent stretch marks during pregnancy or in periods of weight loss. It’s also great to soothe the skin after sun exposure. If your nails are brittle, apply a few drops on your hands and rub them together, insisting on the cuticles for deep hydration.

Another of the multiple applications of the new Sesderma Golden Oil is hair and scalp care. For instance, it can be used as a no-rinse conditioner after the shower, while your hair is still wet, to repair ends and protect them from heat if you’re going to blow-dry or straighten it. It’s also very effective as a moisturising mask: leave it on for at least 10 minutes and then rinse it off. Not only does it help protect your hair, but it also repairs current damage. Finally, one of the most frequent uses is as a final touch, after drying and styling. Pour a few drops on the palms of your hands and massage it into your hair for a shiny, oil-free look.
