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.

    Best oil on the market

    I have used many, many skin care products over the years and started using Marie’s line about 8 years ago. It changed my life and skin, especially since I experience hormonal and stress related breakouts. When they came out with this oil, it was even more of a game changer. I’ve been using it for about 4 years and have seen such positive improvements in my overall skin health. It’s bright, dewy, hydrated and even toned. Really great investment even though it is pricey…

    Life changing

    I’m always so afraid of oils because my skin is so reactive and acne prone and gets clogged easily. But this manages to give sooooo much hydration that if I put it on at night I wake up with really supple calm soft skin, feels a bit bouncier too.

    Almost perfect

    I love the texture and my skin drinks it up immediately, especially now in winter. One star deduction for the scent of the product - it‘s the only thing that keeps my nightly ritual from being absolutely perfect. But will definitely buy it again despite the somewhat unpleasant scent for me.
