Geoffrey Heber and Tracey Beeby, head of education discussed the brand in a presentation MC-ed by Michael Brown (michaelbrownbeauty.com.au). Tracey Beeby, Head of Education at Ultraceuticals gives us the product low-down: “Ultra Dual Microfoliant gets its name from the fact that it has the following dual function: it microfoliates the surface of the skin with the use of Bromelain as well as the mild buffing action of Biodegradable Cellulose Biospheres and the self-dissolving Vitamin C molecules. It uses the power of Vitamin C to help brighten the skin and provide antioxidant protection.
“Dual Exfoliation and Antioxidant Protection - topically applied antioxidants are one of the key ingredients used to counteract the damaging effects of environmental pollutants, free radical damage, and subsequent ‘inflammageing’ which is a skin response to these free radicals. The Ultra Dual Action Microfoliant contains Ascorbic Acid Microparticles to help to mechanically exfoliate the skin surface delivering a brighter, more luminous, refined skin surface. During the application process the Microparticles gradually dissolve to release absorbable micro-fine Pure Ascorbic Acid, an effective antioxidant that helps to defend the skin from environmental pollutants.
“Enzymatic Exfoliation - Bromelain, obtained from the stem of the pineapple plant, is highly effective to exfoliate and remove superficial dead skin cells. And Spherical Biodegradable Cellulose Biospheres gently buff away pollutants trapped in the superficial dead skin cells without causing any superficial micro-abrasions while also being safe for the environment. “The Cellulose Biospheres work together with the Bromelain and Ascorbic Acid Microbeads to reveal a smoother, brighter, more hydrated skin surface.”
