Delivering ingredients deep within the skin
Penetrating deeply to deliver ingredients where they need to be (*)
Spa Treatment's main goal is to formulate products with ingredients that are effective. While there are many ingredients that may be good for the skin, creating a formula to optimize their effectiveness is key.
In this section, we will introduce the production methods used by Spa Treatment.

Multi-layer capsules for delivering ingredients to every corner of your skin
D.P.D. capsules are created by interlayering PEG12GD, an ingredient familiar to your skin, with active skincare ingredients. Consisting of seven to ten layers of oil- and water-soluble ingredients, they are about 100 nanometers in diameter. Made of soft lipid membranes, they can penetrate the skin (*) while also being able to change their shape and size.
(*) Up to the stratum corneum
Deeply delivering results with the power of needle-like structures
In order to penetrate deep within the stratum corneum, this technology forms active ingredients into needle-like structures that are about 250 micrometers in diameter. Using this "spot beauty treatment" technology as part of a patch or sheet, active compounds can be delivered to where they need to be.

Carefully-selected, evidence-based skincare ingredients
When looking at Spa Treatment product ingredients, you will see a long list of patented or evidence-based items. This is because, in order to make the products as effective as possible, they are particular in their ingredient selection and manufacturing processes. Here, we will introduce some of the active ingredients that Spa Treatment has selected.Learn more about Spa Treatment's active ingredients
Spa Treatment selects a wide variety of
HAS (human-derived stem cells) (*1)
Derived from humans, a gentler type of growth factor
HAS (*1), a compound that's only possible due to the latest developments in technology, is a protein produced from human-derived stem cells by the leading stem cell manufacturer, Prostemics. Skin-friendly, it is easily absorbable (*2) and leads to firmer, brighter skin.

Moisturize and protect the skin from irritation
Beta-glucan (*2) is a natural compound taken from mushrooms. Spa Treatment uses beta-glucan derived from split-gill mushrooms, which is superior in, among other things, its ability to promote collagen biosynthesis and moisturize. With twice the power of hyaluronic acid, it can easily penetrate the skin (*) to promote collagen formation. Furthermore, it is known for its synergistic effects with HAS (*1).

Ascorbic Acid (*9)
(Pure Vitamin C)
Able to reach the stratum corneum in its pure form
Ascorbic acid (*9) is also known as pure vitamin C. It is an all-around skincare component, which, among other things, removes activated oxygen from the skin, prevents skin aging, helps in collagen production, and give the skin firmness. Due to its delicate nature however, it is difficult to stabilize in high concentrations, and advanced technology is needed to incorporate it into skincare products.

An archetypal anti-aging component
Taken from the placenta of animals such as horses or pigs, this skin-friendly ingredient provides total support for things like moisturizing, toning, and firming. Spa Treatment uses horse-based or pig-based placenta (*9) in their skincare products.

A first-in-class antioxidant ingredient
Resveratrol (*12), a type of polyphenol, is a powerful antioxidant found in grapes and in the skins of peanuts. Working to activate the sirtuin gene—a gene known to prevent aging—it has also been attracting recent attention due to research showing that it has a skin rejuvenate effect.

Skin-Pleasing Base Ingredients
Carefully selected ingredients that are both skin-friendly and effective
While, in general, skincare products are made using purified water, Spa Treatment products are unique in that they use base ingredients fit to purpose. For example, Alps glacier water (*13), is good for dry, sensitive skin because it is easily permeated (*) and contains essential minerals. On the other hand, alkaline electrolytic ionized water is good for clammy skin as it helps maintain the skin's condition after cleansing. Thus, the power of the base ingredients themselves can work together with the active ingredients to create beautiful skin.

Spa Treatment's Commitment to Base Ingredients
Alps Glacier Water (*13)
A mineral-rich way to infuse the skin with moisture
Alps glacier water (*13) is a mineral-rich type of water created 6,000 feet up in the Swiss Alps by Mother Nature. In addition to it's relaxing effect, it provides the skin with abundant moisture.
Alkaline Electrolytic Ion Water (*13)
"Rust-free" water, with the power of oxygen reduction, reduces stickiness and promotes healthy skin
When compared to regular tap water, alkaline electrolyzed water is said to be "rust-free". It's oxidation reduction nature quickly flushes out sebum dirt and allows for deep penetration, giving moisture to the skin.
