Optimum skin care under the FFP2 mask

Salicylic acid, polysaccharides & liquorice root

While FFP2 masks are intended to protect us against an infection with the currently ever-present Corona virus, the frequent wearing of the filtering facepiece can unfortunately have a negative effect on the skin. The consequences can be dry cheeks, irritations or itching and even acne.  A diligently formulated care product that prevents skin problems and optimally protects the skin barrier can do something about this.


Active agents against acne, dry skin and itching

Care products containing the tried and tested salicylic acid are suitable for preventing acne under the FFP mask. You can now find it also as a natural variety that is brandnew in our portfolio. To fight irritations and itching, we especially recommend our premium-quality liquorice-root derivatives. As a perfect combination that provides unconditional and sensitive moisturisation, our classical polysaccharides such as quince, hyaluronic acid or konjac mannan are the perfect complement in your recipe.


Formulations for perfect skin protection under masks

Our formulation for the African face-cream gel »Natural Sensational Face-Cream-Gel« offers quite a few protective features – also when used under FFP2 masks. Our new »Moisture on! Natural Ampoule«1 provides intensive, lasting moisture without a thick film or greasy ingredients. The carefully selected ingredients with quince extract promote skin resurfacing, improve the elasticity of the skin and reduce transepidermal water loss (TEWL), inflammations and the formation of wrinkles. Our »Amazonian Beauty Rich Cream-Gel Natural«2 with konjac mannan, cupuaçu butter and murumuru butter has a similar active principle. Our »Dermatological Cream Gel« is perfectly suitable for the more demanding skin and has already been presented in our newsletter.

The formulations with more detailed information are available for free download at any time – you can buy all GfN Selco ingredients in maximum quality and in the usual manner. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call – we will be very pleased to provide advice.
