Mode of Action

Dry and sensitive skin is characterized by a weak barrier function and a low threshold for allergic reactions, which can be triggered by different stimuli present in our environment. STIMU-TEX® AS eases sensitive skin complaints thanks to the complementary skin-care properties of its three compounds. It effectively helps to inhibit epidermal inflammation processes and strongly reduces the effects of histamine release.
