DESCRIPTION: Restorative CERAMIDES + FATTY ACIDS + CHOLESTEROL rebuild barrier lipid integrity.
Moisturize at a profound level with this unuique face oil. 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 (50%), cholesterol (25%) and fatty acids (25%).
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 stresors.
Intercellular lipid damage compromises barrier function, which can lead to transepidermal water loss. TEWL can result in dryness, irritation and wrinkles. It follows 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 correct lipids in the correct ratios.
BENEFITS: 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.
HOW TO USE: Shake well. Apply approximately one dropper full into palm of hand. Massage onto face, neck and chest, avoiding eye contour area. If irritation occurs, discontinue use and consult physician. Keep in a cool, dry place, out of direct light. * Use within 6 months of opening.
