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!

    Balances skin

    I was sceptical at first, thinking it was an unnecessary step in my simplified skin care routine. With consistent use it does make a difference in how products absorb.

    I apply and press into my skin before applying Hydration Emulsion. There hAs been a significant improvement in reducing dry and ‘crepey’ skin.

    Great to use right before any type of hydrating product - moisturizer or oil

    I love this hypotonic. I ended up putting into a spray bottle for ease of application, and I put it on right before moisturizer and/or oil. It allows absorption of other products more and overall has made my skin more hydrated. At first I was kind of using it as a "toner" which it is not. I love this product. It allows my other hydrating products to work better

    Good recommendation

    I was recommended the HypoTonic by an esthetician and it goes really well with my serum and facial oil. My skin feels amazing each morning.
