The Research

Targeted cells and tissues form the skin’s own specialised immune system, playing a vital daily role in the prevention of environmental damage, allergy and disease.

Skin immunity, clarity and firmness are directed by a delicately balanced interfusion of biologically active barrier lipids including ceramides, triglycerides and cholesterol. This protective function is fortified by the flexible yet stalwart proteins of the Stratum Corneum’s outermost cells, the corneocytes.

Synthesis and maintenance of these vital barrier constituents is highly dependent on Stratum Corneum moisture levels, supported by B-group vitamins, signalling peptides and Essential Fatty Acids.

The Resilience Actives

Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide) boosts skin resilience and strengthens barrier function, helping skin to protect itself against sun damage while also calming the appearance of redness and irritation. This Skin Identical vitamin also promotes evenness of tone by inhibiting the transfer of melanosome packets through the layers of the epidermis, and locks in moisture by preventing Trans-Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL).

The Resilience Actives

Vitamin B9 (Folic Acid) provides intensive moisturisation for the skin and stimulates healthy connective tissue production. Essential in the regeneration process of skin cells, it also helps to promotes the growth of fibroblasts and protects against UV-induced DNA damage.
