Questions and Answers

What is a Skin'Up slimming clothing?

A Skin'Up slimming garment is a cosmetotextile that combines the expertise of both cosmetics and textiles. The textile includes microcapsules that will release on the skin and provide a cosmetic care even more effective than a slimming or moisturizing cream or a spa benefit.

Skin'Up's expertise is based on the combination of several patented technologies representing the company's know-how and enabling the best centimeter losses in the market to be displayed:

  • microencapsulation,
  • active mineral fibers,
  • a self-massage textured knitting mode.

 


What is microencapsulation?

Microencapsulation consists in isolating microcapsules of 5 microns diameter on average, containing carefully selected and measured natural cosmetic active ingredients. The release of these millions of microcapsules, fixed on the fibers, is carried out in a controlled progressive way by friction of the fabric on the skin to guarantee an effective care and incomparable results.

 

 

What is an active mineral fiber?

All Skin Up skincare products are made of active mineral fibers (ceramic or jade), which are known for their slimming, draining, thermoregulating and detoxifying properties, helping to speed up the slimming and detox treatment process.

Skin'Up holds the "Cosmeto-Ceramic®" patent which combines mineral fibers and microcapsules of cosmetic active ingredients.

Active mineral fiber guarantees textile performance over time. The mineral fiber is not altered during washing, its draining properties are preserved.

 

 

What is the raw material of Skin'Up cosmetotextiles?

The raw material of Skin'Up textiles is composed of 2 main elements:

  • the cosmetic active principles,

Note: Ceramic and Jade fibers are part of the composition of Polyamide

The active ingredients of Skin'Up garments are of natural origin and consist mainly of Fucus Vesiculosus seaweed and Safflower seed oil. They are selected to bring to the epidermis an even more important care than a slimming cream or a benefit dispensed in thalassotherapy, thanks to the gradual and controlled diffusion of the cosmetic care throughout the day and / or night.

How and when to wear Skin'Up clothing?

Skin'Up garments can be worn indoors or outdoors, under clothing or in full dress, under formal wear or just at home. Day or night!

A cosmetotextile acts thanks to the natural friction of the textile on the skin. The textile must be in direct contact with the skin. It is therefore advisable to wear a panty liner or string so that cosmetics can act on the largest body surface.

 

It is possible to wear cosmetotextiles day and night, these products are guaranteed for immediate wear comfort. However, the effectiveness of textiles is closely related to the friction of the textile on your skin, so we advise you to wear them during the day.

 

To make the most of the beneficial effects of your cosmetotextile, we recommend that you wear it for a consecutive period of 28 days for 8 hours a day.

 

 

What is the lifespan of the treatment?

Our care textiles contain cosmetic active ingredients whose lifespan varies between 30 and 35 washes depending on the use and maintenance of the product.

 

The release of the microencapsulated active ingredients is controlled during the first month of use, ideally at 8 hours and one wash per day. Following this first action, the slimming action then continues beyond the life of the cosmetic actives. Indeed, your care textile keeps all its slimming properties since the active fibers and the knitting mode are not altered.

 

You can extend the use of your care textile by applying on your textile the slimming mist that you will find in our online shop.
