Sapore di Mare is a tribute to Versilia, a land located in the northwestern border of the province of Lucca, recognized for being a very fashionable area of the Tuscan Riviera. It attracts many people during the summer for its summer nightlife with many clubs and discos open at night. My first memory of this place was in the summer of 2002. I remember the beach of Forte dei Marmi its beautiful dunes full of wild vegetation, which has become a WWF oasis. The smell of sand, the salt of the sea, seaweed , flowers of dune shrubs and sweet woods. This olfactory memory was encapsulated in Taste of the Sea.
This aftershave from Toscana Factory Lab not only soothes the skin, nourishes and moisturizes it but also takes on the function of an Eau de Toilette given the percentage of fragrance within it. Here we explain some of the properties of the ingredients inside:
Glycolipids: These compounds consisting of macromolecules that contain lipid-bound carbohydrates are obtained from plants. Their function is cellular recovery, which is the ability of the skin to retain moisture, minimize transepidermal water loss, and overall skin tone and texture.
Aloe juice: This gel made from the cold-pressed and organically grown plant of the same name , has healing power. Aloe juice, being rich in valuable substances such as vitamins, enzymes and essential amino acids, protects the skin from dehydration, and thanks to its soothing and refreshing properties, gives hydration and freshness (even after sun exposure).
Mallow extract: obtained from organically grown plants, this extract has an anti-inflammatory, emollient, nourishing, skin-protective, and refreshing function.
Panthenol: Panthenol improves hydration, reduces itching and inflammation of the skin. It accelerates and improves healing of epidermal wounds. It is often used in sunburn treatment products. When panthenol is applied locally, it penetrates the lower layers of the skin, is absorbed by skin cells and converted to pantothenic acid (more commonly known as vitamin B5). It is this penetration that enables essential hydration.
Sodium P CA : Sodium PCA is a sodium salt of pyroglutamic acid. It is an amino acid found naturally in many proteins. It is part of the NMF (natural moisturizing factor), that is, compounds that enable the natural maintenance of skin hydration.
It is used in cosmetics as a moisturizer, humectant. This ingredient is also nontoxic, nonirritating and hypoallergenic.
Guar gum: made from the seed of a legume, this compound is a film-forming agent creates a thin film on the skin that gives the skin a velvet effect.
