Balancing HypoTonic
If the oil cleanser is a new way to think about cleansing, the Hypotonic is a new way to think about hydrating. It works by balancing the liquid content of skin cells and the lamellar structures surrounding them. Most water-based moisturizers leak into the interstices of the skin and actually leach water from skin cells, which is why conventional mists or toners can leave skin feeling more, rather than less, dehydrated. Our biomimetic design has produced a one-of- a-kind tonic, composed of humectants with distinctive similarities to the make-up of the skin’s lamellar structures. The tonic balances moisture content in the skin, leaving it feeling soft and dewy.

BETA-GLUCAN + d-PANTHENOL penetrate lipid layer to rehydrate, rebalance microflora + skin pH.

Size

This tonic hydrates via a unique process designed to balance the liquid content of skin cells with the lipids that surround them; and in so doing it provides necessary support for the stratum corneum to be self sufficient.

The stratum corneum contains multiple layers of flattened cells (corneocytes), encased in a thick coating of fat or lipids. Arranged into pairs of sheets (lamellar membranes), these lamellar lipid bi-layers fill spaces between the cells, providing a formidable barrier to the outflow of water from skin (transepidermal water loss).

Most water-based moisturizers/hydrators seep into the lamellar layers of the SC, leaching water from skin cells—potentially why conventional mists or toners can leave skin more dehydrated. Our biomimetic design has produced a one-of-a-kind tonic, composed of humectants with distinctive similarity to the skin’s lamellar structure. Since maintaining lamellar membrane integrity also protects the contents of the skin cells, the tonic not only promotes liquid/lipid balances, it also restores and improves overall barrier function.

BENEFITS

Unique blend of humectants truly hydrate by maintaining moisture levels within the cellular/lamellar structures.

Imperative to prep top skin layers, allowing optimum permeation of nutrient-rich serums.

AHAs rebalance pH, pre/probiotics rebalance skin microbiome.

INGREDIENTS

BETA GLUCAN excellent polysaccharide humectant that penetrates into the deeper lamellar structures of the SC.

d-PANTHENOL Pro-vitamin B5 promotes wound healing, helps restore damaged epithelium, reduces inflammation, improves skin hydration, reduces transepidermal water loss, improves skin roughness.

SODIUM HYALURONATE disaccharide occurring naturally in skin, a major component of the dermis, maintaining its moisture and elasticity. Holds up to 1000x its weight in water—a powerful humectant.

LICORICE ROOT Anti-inflammatory botanical, skin-lightening properties.

SELENIUM Works with vitamin E to safeguard cell membranes by inhibiting lipid peroxidation. Used to control Malassezia globose, a species of fungus that causes Tinea versicolor and hypopigmentation.

    Don’t go a day without!

    All the Marie Veronique products make me feel special - because I know am doing exactly what my skin needs. And when I use them - whether cleansing with the oil or applying a serum - I close my eyes, try to slow down and fully embrace the experience - my skin drinks in those nutrients like a tall glass of cold water on a hot day.

    There is not one day I go without the Balancing Hypotonic - I start my morning skin care with it, calming yet refreshing, prepping my skin to soak up the morning serum and the Daily Protective Oil. Over the years, due to using these delicious products, I’ve been able to use less makeup and more MV!! Marie Veronique on my skin daily is way more valuable than heavy makeup and foundation and blush and powder - and my healthy glowing skin, on which I receive consistent compliments - is the undeniable proof! Thank you, MV!

    A miss for me

    I'm so grateful to have found Marie Veronique and Kristina Holey's products. After spending a ton of money and wasting a lot of time on "luxury" skincare that wasn't really doing much for my skin or, worse, was hurting my skin barrier, the Pure + EO Free Oil Cleanser, Barrier Restore Serum, and Retinol Night Emulsion, to name a few, have been so effective for my skin. I was naturally excited to finally try to the Balancing HypoTonic, first in the travel size, then a full size bottle purchased at Credo Beauty, and unfortunately, for whatever reason, it just did not agree with my skin. I suddenly had intense breakouts of tiny, irritated closed comedones along my browlines and temples. I kept removing different parts of my routine for a few days to see if I could identify the culprit, not thinking it could be the tonic, but ultimately it was stopping the tonic that made the difference. Just scaling back to cleanse, barrier restore, a light moisturizer, and spf for about a week has made the breakouts almost entirely disappear (a testament to the beautiful barrier restore serum!). I know the tonic works wonders for most, and based on the ingredients it should have been perfect for my skin. Oh well. Will happily continue to use my other products, and I still trust MV and KH with my life, to be clear :)

    I think this is my favorite product in their entire collection!

    After getting out of the shower, my skin used to be tight and dry, but using the tonic instantly refreshes my skin, ready for my Mare Veronique serums. 10/10.

    Please make a this into a spray bottle!

    I found this product hard to apply and constantly over pouring, spilling and wasting until I found an extra mist top I had. Once I used it with the mist application it gave my skin the perfect hydration and primed my skin for all my other serums.
