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.
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.
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.

"I've yet to score a facial from her myself, but San Francisco’s skincare guru Kristina Holey has long been on my radar—so when she launched a line of products with organic brand Marie Veronique, I knew it would be good."
"We both have this weird passion for skin and we were just on the same page in terms of how we approach it,” says Nadeau, who launched her popular green beauty brand on the back of a cult-favorite tinted chemical-free zinc oxide sunscreen in 2002. “My approach has always been: ‘How would nature do this?'"
"I use Marie Veronique products day and night. I recently got a facial from Kristina Holey..."
