Barrier Restore Serum

Barrier Restore Serum
Our skin barrier protects against external assaults, but its most important task is to protect against moisture loss. BR improves compromised barrier function by replacing components lost through such stressors as overcleansing, exfoliation, repeated use of topical anti-microbials or antibiotics. Restoring barrier function returns the stratum corneum to a state where proper moisture levels are maintained, resulting in skin that feels moisturized, hydrated and healthy.

IMPERATIVE FOR ALL SKIN. Reestablishes + maintains barrier function, essential for a radiant complexion.


1oz | 30ml

KRISTINA HOLEY intended this product to be initially used for clients with weakened barrier layers, but found through client trials that every-one reported an increase in comfort in their skin, less need for heavy moisturizers, and an absence of dryness even in extreme conditions.

The key to healthy skin is water balance of the stratum corneum. This groundbreaking serum maintains barrier function in two ways.

First, it replaces NATURAL MOISTURIZING FACTOR, a collection of water soluble compounds which keep skin cells hydrated.

Secondly, it prevents loss of NMF via a liposomal sealing system that traps water molecules instead of letting them absorb into the lower layers of the epidermis.

BENEFITS

Balances moisture levels, eliminating dry, dehydrated skin.

Corrects inflammation, including acne, dermatitis and even aging.

Relieves dermatitis-related conditions (allergic and atopic), and fortifies sensitive and rosacea-prone skin.

INGREDIENTS

CERAMIDES  Lipid molecules within cell membranes, they help cells form a protective layer that plumps skin and retains moisture.

SODIUM HYALURONATE Occurs naturally in skin, maintaining its moisture and elasticity. This large molecule can’t fully penetrate the skin’s outer layers to fill wrinkles, yet it’s a wonderful humectant, holding up to 1000x its own weight in water.

L-ARGININE  Also known as L-glutamine, this amino acid is proven to play an important role in the growth of fibroblast cells.

SODIUM PCA  A humectant found in human skin has high water absorbing properties, and the ability to absorb moisture from the air.

PHOSPHATIDYL SERINE  Some studies show topical application slows wrinkling by inhibiting enzymes that break down collagen.

MAGNESIUM CHLORIDE May help alleviate dryness/inflammation in magnesium deficient skin by increasing elasticity and moisture.
