For facial skin care

Enriched with organic zinc molecules, the ONYX beauty pillowcase is a revolutionary health product that beautifies and protects facial and scalp skin while you sleep.
This molecule is known for its anti-fungal and anti-bacterial qualities, expressed through a complex chemical mechanism that delays the process of fungal or bacterial cells’ multiplication. The ingredient’s ability to act against fungus and bacteria derives from its tendency to block the proton suction that stimulates the movement of the cell membranes, decrease ATP levels (a molecule that supplies energy to the cell), and disrupt the synthesis of the cell’s proteins.
The primary use of this molecule is for the treatment of various skin and scalp diseases, such as: seborrhea dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema, vitiligo, atopic dermatitis and dandruff. This molecule is effective against pathogens (disease generators), and many types of bacteria of the Staphylococcus and Streptococcus strains.
Zinc has antioxidant attributes and is therefore efficient in the prevention of the skin’s early aging, and even stimulates the healing of damaged skin. Zinc is involved in the synthesis of collagen in your body, and is a crucial and important component for the treatment of acne. The open sores created by the acne attract germs and infection, and the zinc, which is characterized by its ability to terminate various pathogens, assists in treating the problem quickly and efficiently. One of the causes of acne is the lack of antioxidants cause by the infection, as well as the increase in the levels of free radicals, which leads to the oxidation of skin fat and lactic acids. The skin cells can generate an anti-oxidant enzyme complex, such as super oxide dismutase and Glutathione. Acne patients suffer from a lack of these enzymes, and since zinc is a central component in the Glutathione enzyme, increasing the zinc levels will lead to the increase in the levels of skin antioxidants, thus relieving the infection.
Zinc is an important component in the proteins transporting retinol (an inactive type of vitamin A) to the skin cells receptors. When retinol infiltrates the cell’s cytoplasm, it becomes an active ingredient called retinoic acid that affects the balance of the cells’ DNA activity.
Zinc has an important role in the suppression of the Dihydrotestosterone hormone that is an active form of testosterone, which constitutes a central force in activating the sebocytes, which are responsible for generating sebum. A decreased amount of sebum will decrease the possibility of blockage of the vessels that secrete sebum, thus decreasing the symptoms of infection and acute acne.
The activity of the zinc ions is stimulated in two ways:
- External activity on the skin, and in this case, there is no need for the infiltration of zinc ions into the skin. This is actually the direct elimination of pathogens on the skin.
- Infiltration into the skin via pores that serve as drainage openings of sweat and sebum, as well as into the hair follicles.
This zinc compound is known for its efficiency in the treatment of dandruff, a very common problem that affects more than 40% of the adult population and can be caused by the presence of various types of fungi in the scalp, such as Malassezia globobsa and Malassezia restricta. This molecule disrupts the activity of the proteins that are crucial for the metabolic process and the growth of the fungi. A decrease in the amount of fungi that causes dandruff in the scalp also decreases the level of amino acids in the scalp, thus decreasing the dandruff and relieving the itchy sensation.
Zinc has an important role in the body and its activity is important for the multiplication of cells, for hormonal imbalance, good absorption of vitamins and proteins and DNA synthesis. Zinc assists in invigorating the activity of more than a hundred different enzymes, and therefore is involved in most of the processes related to the metabolism. Zinc has also been found to assist in the regulation and functionality of the immune system and is crucial for the generation of T lymphocytes.
The T cells assist the body in two ways: control and adjustment of the immune reaction and attack on infected or cancerous cells. Zinc has the ability to delay the multiplication of Rhinoviruses – the main virus that causes the common cold, and to relieve the intensity of the symptoms.
This Zinc compound has a wide antibacterial spectrum that includes fungi, and positive and negative gram bacteria. The safety of this ingredient has been proven beyond all doubt in multiple research studies and approved by the FDA for use. In addition, the attractive, healthy, and cosmetic ONYX pillowcase preserves the beauty of the facial skin and its health, improves the quality of sleep and is made of dense, soft, and high-quality Egyptian cotton fabric. Used daily, this product will enable you to enjoy healthy and clean skin and healthy scalp with significant decrease in the level of dandruff and excessive moisture in the skin and scalp.
Daily and continuous usage of this health pillowcase is an efficient and inexpensive tool for improving your quality of life, and maintaining healthy and smooth skin, all while you are sleeping and with no effort.
