Presentation and promises of the Lytess flat tummy belt

The Lytess flat tummy belt is part of cosmetotextile or cosmeto-textile, a new technology that merges the worlds of cosmetics and textiles through a process called microencapsulation. The principle of action of these slimming microcapsules is simple: a movement of pressure or friction between the body and the fabric causes the microcapsules to rupture, releasing their contents into the body through the dermis.

According to its manufacturer, the Lytess Flat Belly Belt is designed to refine your silhouette, with visible results from the first 5 days of wear.

This claimed effectiveness is due to a cosmetic serum integrated into the belt via slimming microcapsules, combined with a very soft microfiber textile. This technology should give you an impeccable figure, while remaining very discreet.

Advantages of the Lytess flat tummy belt :

  • Paraben-free (ester generally used as a preservative in the food, beverage and cosmetics industry) ;
  • Flat tummy effect;
  • Inch loss ;
  • Ultra-soft touch;
  • Perfect hold.

Ingredients in Lytess flat tummy belt microcapsules for weight loss

For its flat tummy belt, Lytess has chosen to use a knitted fabric with a sheathing effect, whose composition is 90% Polyamide and 10% Elastane.

This compressive technical mesh combines a supple, sheathing texture, a sophisticated seamless design, a high-performance textile and slimming microcapsules with targeted actions on the hips, thighs and stomach.

Introducing the Lytess flat tummy belt

Lytess Flat Belly Belt microcapsules for weight loss contain the following ingredients:

1. Red Algae:

Known as “vegetable coral” in the cosmetics industry, red algae is said to have a moisturizing, remineralizing and lipolytic action.

It helps burn fat from the outside, and transmits trace elements and sea minerals to the skin.

2. Forskolin:

This plant has many benefits.

Released from weight-loss microcapsules, it promotes fat burning, activates circulation, firms and tones the body.

By releasing fatty acids located in fat cells, forskolin helps to reduce body fat.

3. Ginger:

Ginger is a powerful stimulant and tonic, particularly for the digestive system.

It helps protect the liver, lowers cholesterol levels and promotes overall good health.

Ginger also has warming properties.

4. Pink pepper:

Activates circulation, tones and warms.

Pink pepper has diuretic properties that promote the elimination of toxins, and effectively combats cellulite.

5. Sandalwood extract:

Has a soothing, antiseptic and tonic action.

Sandalwood essential oil has a number of recognized benefits, including lymphatic and venous decongestion, and cardiotonic properties.

6. Shea butter:

Very rich in vitamins, it protects, softens and regenerates the skin.

Shea butter deeply moisturizes the epidermis, revitalizes tissues and restores skin elasticity.

7. Sweet Almond Oil:

Soothes and softens, giving skin a velvety appearance.

Emollient, it nourishes the skin and protects it from drying out.

Finally, it softens and strengthens, prevents stretch marks and activates the skin’s repair capacities.

Scientific studies on the Lytess flat tummy belt

Are the weight-loss microcapsules in the Lytess Flat Belly Belt really effective?

A study was carried out on 30 volunteers, who wore the belt 8h a day for 5 days. The results were as follows:

  • Loss of up to 2.3cm waist circumference – 3.8cm hip circumference – 2.6cm thigh circumference.
  • Average loss of 0.6 waist circumference – 0.71cm hip circumference – 0.48cm thigh circumference.

After self-assessment, 87% of people said they were satisfied with the flat tummy effect, and 90% judged the microcapsule slimming belt to be effective.

No side effects were observed during the study.

On the other hand, we were able to find this study, carried out in 2011, which proves the efficacy of the cosmetotextile concept, its adaptation to the human body, the ease with which it can be impregnated with the desired ingredients and the absence of any risk. The study gave the go-ahead for industrial production of this concept.

    this belt at 34e (expensive!) is irritating and sticks to the skin with the scotch tape of maintenance, hyper badly cut: all straight, without form with the hips (pain) very difficult to slip on. IT’S A SMOKING BAND THAT IS NOT WORTH THE MONEY THAT HAS BEEN PUT INTO IT! in short, it can’t be imported… of course LYTESS will reimburse you if you don’t unpack. And how do you go about trying it on without unpacking it? !!!!!!!!!!note1 not to mention 0.
