CLEANSES, MOISTURIZES + GENTLY EXFOLIATES: By combining gentle cleansing agents and moisturizers, it effectively cleanses skin of dirt, debris, dead skin cells, makeup and oils – while also depositing a protective moisture layer.
SAFEGUARDS THE SKIN BARRIER: Contains cleansing agents and emulsifiers that cleanse without disturbing pH, stripping skin and creating imbalances that can lead to dehydration, sensitivity and even acne.
HELPS TO REDUCE THE APPEARANCE OF PORES: It gently breaks down oil and dead skin cells in pores over time to help clear debris and clarify.
PREVENTS HARD WATER DEPOSITS: It does not contain stearic or palmitic acid, which when combined with hard water (present in 80% of households in the US) can leave mineral deposits on skin and lead to barrier dysfunction and dehydration.
PROMOTES SKIN IMMUNITY: Our cleanser helps promote a balanced microbiota which supports the skin’s natural immune functions by helping to preserve the barrier and encouraging optimal pH levels in the skin.
PREPARES SKIN FOR PRODUCT PENETRATION: Effectively removes excess oils and debris from skin, properly preparing skin for the maximum absorption of skincare products that follow.
HELPS STRENGTHEN + PROTECT SKIN BARRIER: Our concentrate replenishes ceramides and essential lipids responsible for healthy barrier function and necessary for cell signaling, helping to repair and protect the skin barrier.
HELPS REDUCE WATER LOSS: Ceramides fortify the skin barrier, improve structural integrity and help reduce skin permeability – helping to reduce transepidermal water loss.
DRAMATICALLY MOISTURIZES: Our patented, long-chain ceramides thoroughly migrate throughout the multi-layered intercellular lipid network, cushioning skin and surrounding cells in essential lipids. Research shows our patented ceramides may deliver up to 3x the moisturization power of other ceramides.
HELPS WITH INFLAMMATORY SKIN CONDITIONS: Inflammatory conditions, such as atopic dermatitis, dehydration, and acne are linked to low ceramide levels and barrier dysfunction. Increasing ceramide levels in the skin improves barrier function and may reduce risk for certain inflammatory conditions.
HELPS BUFFER RETINOIDS: Ceramides and fatty acids help to buffer and reduce negative skin reactions, such as redness, itchiness and flaking, associated with the use of strong exfoliants, sas AHAs, retinoids and vitamin C derivatives.
PROMOTES OPTIMAL PH BALANCE: Ceramides and moisture are necessary for skin to maintain optimal pH Balance. Maintaining the acidic pH is important to regulate the enzyme activity that leads to desquamation, lipid synthesis, and inflammation.
