Barrier Lipid Complex
1 oz / 30 mL
Epidermal lipids are an essential part of the skin’s stratum corneum. Therefore the most effective lipids for maintaining skin health are those most identical to the epidermal lipids: ceramides, cholesterol and fatty acids.
These lipids also make up about 50% of cell membranes, and can be damaged due to a process called lipid peroxidation, as well as exposure to internal and external stressors.
Intercellular lipid damage compromises barrier function, which can lead to transepidermal water loss. TEWL can result in dryness, irritation and wrinkles. Therefore it’s evident that lipids are an integral part of skin health, and key to a well-functioning barrier system. The essence of skin moisturizing is lipid replacement, best accomplished by applying the relevant lipids.
Ceramides maintain youthful, plump, well-hydrated skin.
Cholesterol lubricates surface layers, delivering an emollient + creamy texture to moisturize profoundly, without risk of irritation or breakouts.
Biomemetic fatty acids balance skin’s oil ratio without essential oils to disrupt barrier lipid balance or threaten its microbiome.
