Barrier Lipid Complex
3 in stock
Restorative Ceramides + Fatty Acids + Cholesterol rebuild barrier lipid integrity. Moisturize at a profound level.
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.

How To Use
Shake well. Dispense approximately 1/2 a dropper and warm between hands. Massage onto face, neck and chest, avoiding eye contour area. If irritation occurs, discontinue use and consult physician. Keep in a cool, dry place, out of direct light. Use within 6 months of opening.
Ceramindes – Lipid molecules within cell membranes, they help cells form a protective layer that plumps skin and retains moisture.
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.
Phoshatidyl 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.
