The Interstellar mask contains several well-studied and proven effective ingredients such as skin soothing panthenol and allantoin, moisturizing glycerin, vitamin C in the form of ascorbic acid. True, there are no components in the composition that would stabilize it (for example, ferulic acid or vitamin E), and the format of the can still implies frequent contact with air.
The composition of the Interstellar mask also includes two complexes: a mineral with copper and zinc, which will relieve inflammation, and a complex of plant extracts – green tea, lemon balm, witch hazel, kelp and rosemary, which will have a moderate drying effect and help regulate sebum production. Witch hazel extract is often added to products for skin prone to oily skin: it really is able to “collect” sebum. True, this is due to the fact that witch hazel extract contains ethanol, that is, alcohol. The component is considered potentially annoying and drying out the skin.
The composition also contains marine collagen and succinic acid – components that are not yet so well researched. Marine collagen is obtained from the skin of fish, it is believed that due to its film-forming and protective properties, this asset is useful for skin exposed to negative environmental influences. Succinic acid in the formula of the mask, according to the manufacturer, helps to strengthen blood vessels. We did not find any clinical studies supporting this promise. Most often succinic acid used in cosmetic products as an emollient, surfactant or emulsifier.
