Barrier Lipid Complex
Unlike oil blends that are composed solely of various combinations of free fatty acids (most of the oil blends on the market) this lipid blend contains the right mix of lipids found in the epidermal lipid barrier; ceramides (50%), cholesterol (25%) and fatty acids (25%). Supplying the correct lipids in the correct ratios achieves the very essence of skin moisturizing.

Restorative CERAMIDES + FATTY ACIDS + CHOLESTEROL rebuild barrier lipid integrity. Moisturize at a profound level.


1oz | 30ml

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, cholesterol and fatty acids.

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 stressors.

Intercellular lipid damage compromises barrier function, which can lead to transepidermal water loss. TEWL can result in dryness, irritation and wrinkles. Therefore it’s evident 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 relevant lipids.

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.

INGREDIENTS

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

CHOLESTEROL An important barrier lipid, it has water-binding properties and is crucial to maintaining proper barrier function.

FATTY ACIDS Polyunsaturated fats crucial to proper barrier function, examples are: Cranberry Seed oil, Black Raspberry seed oil, Chia seed oil, prickly pear seed oil, evening primrose oil.

PHOSPHATIDYL SERINE A phospholipid that is an important (though small) component of the lipid barrier. Some studies show topical application slows wrinkling by inhibiting enzymes that break down collagen.

EICOSAPENTAENOIC ACID A vegan alternative (from algae oil) to the hard-to-get type of Omega-3 (EPA) found in fatty fish.

    like water in the desert!

    I live in a dry, harsh climate and am often outdoors in the sun and elements year round. This product has made a huge impact on my skin and I notice a visible difference in how dewy/balanced my skin looks when I'm using it... especially after a day out outside!

    Dry skin don't live here no more!

    Winter weather and summer air conditioners cannot contend with this oil. It's got my back!

    My wrinkles and I truly appreciate the moisture rich plumping effect. A year round necessity for my mature skin!

    Superior Moisture for Sensitive skin

    This product is one of the MVPs of my skincare routine! It is my favorite moisturizer - this review is from someone who has dry, very sensitive skin that has at times dealt with excema. This product (along with E.O. Free cleanser) has had my skin breakout free for the 4 years since I have been a customer. I highly recommend it.
