FAQ's

  • “How will Activated Oxygen products improve the appearance of my skin?”

 

The high ‘Active Oxygen’ content in our creams has many benefits for the skin.  As we all know oxygen plays a critical part in sustaining life.  Every living cell is dependent on oxygen to provide them with the life and energy they need to survive. 

Oxygen and energy levels in the skin naturally lower as we age because the circulation in our capillaries deteriorates over time leaving the skin less elastic and producing fine lines and wrinkles.  Also, as we age our bodies lose the ability to circulate oxygen effectively, further adding to the decline in the appearance of our skin.  The most dramatic decrease in oxygen occurs in the skin of the hands and face.   

Our Protective Hand Cream provides the ultimate in oxygen skin rejuvenation by replenishing this lost oxygen and energy, therefore helping to fill fine lines and wrinkles by strengthening the elasticity and structure of the skin. You will notice this firming and tightening sensation when using our cream. Oxygen also assists in the production of Collagen, Elastin and other proteins that are necessary to sustain a healthy skin condition. 

The oxygen literally ‘breathes’ life back into your skin due to the Microcirculation effect that our products create on the skin.  This effect will also help to stimulate the production of fresh skin cells, further enhancing the appearance of your hands. Our Protective Hand Cream also assists in rehydrating the moisture content of the skin, once again by increasing the oxygen level.

 

  • “Why would I want a luxury cosmetic product that also kills bacteria, surely the two don’t go hand in hand?”

It is common knowledge that germs are all around us and although most of these germs are relatively harmless, there are some that cause infections and illnesses.  According to the International Scientific Forum on Home Hygiene (IFH), the hands are one of the most frequent transmission routes for many types of infections as they come into direct contact with known portals of entry for pathogens (mouth, nose, conjunctiva of the eyes). Therefore, practicing proper hand hygiene is the easiest way to help reduce infections. 

Interesting facts:

  • Nearly 80% of all germs that are responsible for illness are spread via our hands
  • In just 24 hours, a single germ can multiply to become more than 8 million
  • One sneeze can propel up to 100,000 germs into the air at nearly 200mph
  • You can be infected with a flu virus and spreading germs anything up to 3 days before symptoms first begin.
  • Everyday items such as telephones, keyboards and chopping boards are more likely to have more germs on them than your toilet seat!

Alcohol based products can strip the skin of essential oils which act as a natural protective barrier against bacterial infection. Extensive use actually increases the skin’s susceptibility to infection.  Our products on the other hand actually improves the condition of your skin and is therefore far superior to Alcohol/ Chlorine based sanitizers.

 

  • “Are there any other benefits in using your products?”

Yes, the oxidising power of our products will also enhance the exfoliation of the epidermis, as any unhealthy or dead skin cells will be oxidised (removed). The reason for this is because healthy skin cells contain enzymes (Superoxide Dismutase, Catalase and Glutathione Peroxidase)that prevent the single oxygens from oxidising them, whereas dead or unhealthy skin cells do not contain these enzymes and therefore will be oxidised.  This process further enhances the stimulation of fresh skin cells giving skin a youthful, bright glow.  The ‘Active Oxygen’ also helps the production of the above enzymes that are critical in preventing our cells being attacked by free radicals.

 

  • “Are your products safe to use and are there any side effects?”

Our products have been dermatologically tested by an independent testing laboratory (Derma Sciences) and it was certified to be safe for use.  The only side effects of using our Protective Hand Cream are positive ones, once again due to the high ‘Active Oxygen’ concentration. 

When using our products, very occasionally a tingling sensation can be felt on the skin.  If this does occur, it is simply the ‘Active Oxygen’ working on the skin and epidermis (as mentioned above).

  

  • Why do Activated Oxygen products have this unique smell and texture?

 

You will note that the smell and texture of our products is probably nothing like you have used before.  The unique smell is the Activated Oxygen in the cream, with many customers describing it as ‘fresh’ and ‘clean’. However, we recommend that if a customer prefers a different fragrance, then they should simply use their own moisturiser afterwards.

The texture of our creams is also due to the oxygenated gel within them. Activated Oxygen Ltd have been trying to combine their oxygenated gel with the highest quality cosmetic creams for over a decade, and finally they have found a cream that will allow them to do so, this has resulted in the unique texture of our products.  

 

  • Can I use your products with others?

Yes you can our products with others, but please allow them to dry before doing so.
