The oxygen concentration in a healthy human body is approximately three times that of the air. About 80% of all metabolic energy production is created by oxygen. Fortunately, oxygen is the most abundant element on Earth. Scientists now also agree that oxygen plays a powerful and primary role in our overall health and well-being. A growing number of researchers agree that the best way to improve health may be related to the optimum oxygenation of every cell.
In the past several years, there was a great interest in active oxygen and the technology required for its stabilization, because it can be used for cosmetic products, but also for specialized medical cosmetics, dental medicine, surgery, and dermatology. It has shown effectiveness against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria and fungi which usually cause inflammation.
What is the “secret” of active oxygen?
The useful properties of active oxygen compounds have been known for a long time. The efficacy of active oxygen compounds has been proven and supported by hundreds of clinical trials and expert experiences all over the world.
Active oxygen products effectively supply the skin with active oxygen and in this way provide oxygenation for the skin cells.
The process of oxygenation is a mechanism of supplying the skin with oxygen in its active form, which delivers molecules directly into the skin. Active oxygen compounds are recognized by the body as its own because they are part of our immune system. This is a very important fact whereas it ensures that no allergies and other undesirable effects can occur.
Making of cosmetic products with active oxygen is technologically extremely demanding, as active oxygen compounds react with each material. They are very unstable in the sense of maintaining their beneficial characteristics. Specific materials, numerous certificates, and tests are required for each production step, process and packing element. The reason for the non-massive use of active oxygen compounds in medicine and cosmetics is the complexity of the process of maintaining the product’s stability and the correct formulation. The form of the chemical compound and its recipe are very fragile and must be kept in precisely defined balance to ensure the best possible result.
Promotes healing and resistance of the skin
Oxygenation technology improves oxygen supply to the skin, stimulates skin detoxification and instantly invigorates the metabolic activity of skin cells. This not only improves the skin’s appearance but also benefits its overall function and structure.
Active oxygen deeply cleans facial skin and disinfects it. It also stimulates the renewal of the surface layer of the skin, promotes healing of wounds and makes it more resistant to irritation and redness that are caused by external factors.
Active oxygen fights aerobic bacteria which cause skin problems (including acne which is caused by Propionibacterium acnes).
After a few days of using Active oxygen cosmetic product, you will notice that the acne are slowly retreating and disappearing and there are no new ones.
The treatments with active oxygen give excellent results because bacteria and viruses are removed along with the dead skin cells. Healthy cells are regenerated while the circulation of the blood vessels is improved, so the face looks rejuvenated.
Active Oxygen and hyaluronic acid
Hyaluronic acid is an ingredient in many anti-aging skin care products that slow the aging process and rejuvenate the skin. Hyaluronic acid maintains optimal skin moisture. The combination of active oxygen and hyaluronic acid makes the product very effective in treating wrinkles, epithelialization, regeneration, and hydration.
Active oxygen stops the bleeding and suppresses the reopening of the wounds. It soothes the irritated area around the wound and disinfects it from germs, stimulates healing of injuries and erases the scars after the wound has healed. It is also used for burns and injuries.
Active oxygen provides oxygenation for the cells. By creating a protective barrier on the surface and relieving symptoms of various undesirable nail conditions, it contributes to healthy and beautiful nails. Active oxygen fights against fungal and bacterial infections which cause undesirable skin conditions act to cleanse, nourish, hydrate and oxygenate nails.
Aging process was partly due to decreasing collagen and oxygen pressures in the skin as we grow old. Whereas oxygen is also heavily involved in the production of collagen, there are claims that oxygenation slows down the aging process of the skin.
These properties of active oxygen are used widely not only for cosmetic but for treating conditions in dermatology and stomatology.
