We’re very impressed with the results of using Dr. Spiller Sensicura Cleansing Emulsion – which is an incredibly good cleansing product for hyper-sensitive skin.

But what is it about this product which makes it so good? One of the main ingredients is magnolia bark which we were interested in finding out more.

So thanks to Cosmetics and Toiletries for the science bit!

Magnolia bark contains two anti-inflammatory substances, magnolol and honokiol, which reportedly inhibit the activation of NF-KB, a key mediator in both inflammatory and aging processes. However, with age, the immune system becomes less effective and inflammatory activity increases. This can lead to chronic inflammation characterized by a slow but continuous production of free radicals that in turn, cause wrinkles and sagging skin.

Although magnolol and honokiol exhibit low solubility in water, the company has developed a technique to make a magnolia preparation that is both water-dispersible and rich in these active compounds. In vivo studies have shown that the compund also reduces facial skin redness and improves the hydration and visco-elastic properties of the skin, notably on the crow’s feet area.

The compound is recommended at 0.1–0.5 % in: antiaging products for face and eye contour, protective formulas and anti-redness skin care. The compound can be dissoved in the aqueous phase or pre-dispersed in up to 20% in water and added to formulations during the cooling phase (< 60°C). Temperatures of up to 80°C for a short time do not affect the stability of the compound.

The mild Sensicura Cleansing Emulsion gently removes impurities deep in the pores, makeup while also leaving the skin pleasantly smooth.

A gentle cleanser with Magnolia Bark Oil, Vitamin F, Panthenol, Allantoin and Squalene to protect the skin’s lipid barrier, reduce Transepidermal Water Loss and reduce irritation.

Apply to face and neck for cleansing morning and evening. Gently emulsify with fingertips and remove with lukewarm water and pat dry.
