TARGETS: Damaged moisture barrier & stressed out skin
RESULTS: Protect. Restore. Rebuild
Our complex of 5 barrier boosting Ceramides help protect and regenerate the skin’s natural barrier, made up of varying chain lengths, together they ‘fill the gaps’ of a damaged skin barrier, replacing those that have declined in the cell surface of the skin.
Enhanced by Sphingolipids, these ceramide precursors help to strengthen the skin barrier, creating signalling pathways to encourage the upper layers of the skin to synthetises their own ceramides. Hyaluronic Acid, fatty acids and lipids work in partnership with ceramides, mimicking the skin’s natural building blocks, helping to restore and rebuild the skin’s natural barrier function, whilst locking in and retaining moisture.
Apply a thin, even layer to clean, dry skin when skin is damaged, or use consistently as a serum moisturiser hybrid. No need to rinse.
If skin barrier is compromised, make sure to remove retinols, acids or intense actives from your routine. For more stressed-out skin, apply a thicker layer as an overnight mask.
Ceramides (5 types) –. These ‘skin-identical’ ingredients occur naturally in the skin and make up 50% of your skin barrier. As you age, and as skin gets damaged through external aggressors, the quality and quantity of your own ceramides reduce. Leading to damaged skin barrier, irritation and dryness. Our complex of 5 barrier boosting Ceramides mimic the skins natural building blocks, helping it to stay firm, hydrated and supple, restoring your moisture barrier to its former glory.
Sphingolipids-part of the make up of ceramides, they act as ‘precursors’, helping to strengthen the skin barrier, creating signalling pathways to encourage the upper layers of the skin to synthetises more of their own ceramides.
Fatty Acids & Cholesterol -ceramides are most effective when combined with other ‘skin-identical’ ingredients such as fatty acids, glycerine and cholesterol. These lipid mixtures are great for improving skin tone and texture and for reducing signs of irritated skin.
Hyaluronic Acid –for added hydration, with incredible moisture binding abilities and a tiny molecular structure, Hyaluronic Acid can help hold moisture up to 1000 times its own weight when applied to the skin.
