COVA B Trox is a complex of active marine magnesium, algae extract, and polysaccharides, and offers a non-invasive, 'Botox' alternative for the treatment of facial wrinkles and expression lines or creases. Magnesium and calcium play a key role in muscle contraction - Magnesium relaxes muscle fibres whereas calcium tenses the muscles. Magnesium is also one of the most important mineral elements in the body, participating in numerous enzymatic reactions including energy metabolism and protein synthesis amongst many others.
COVA B Trox utilises natural marine magnesium derived from sea water to achieve the muscle relaxing properties. To further enhance efficacy of COVA B Trox, natural polysaccharides derived from chicory and seaweed extracts are utilised. The polysaccharides are excellent water -binding agents that help to boost the moisture content of the skin, give skin smoothing and softening, and provide a protective film.
The use of natural seaweed provides essential oligoelements, vitamins, amino acids and antioxidants to help further with hydration and protection of the epidermis. COVA B Trox has been shown to be effective (in-vivo studies) in rapidly reducing wrinkles and lines, and provides a persistent smoothing effect. It is a safe, non-toxic, and non-paralysing alternative to botulinum toxin injections.
