The Research

The skin’s outermost layer, the Stratum Corneum, is made up of an intricately balanced composition of lipids, including ceramides, cholesterol and triglycerides. This living barrier exists to protect skin from external hazards, keeping it hydrated and supple while helping to shield against sunlight and other environmental aggressors.

A thorough nightly cleansing regimen can assist in the replenishment of vital Stratum Corneum lipids and proteins, which are otherwise diminished a result of ageing and environmental damage.

Skin lipid esters assist in breaking down surface debris, including sunscreen actives and makeup which are removed with the addition of water, while simultaneously boosting concentrations of native surface lipids to fortify barrier function.

The Integrity Actives

Skin Identical Ceramide Complex replenishes the skin’s intercellular lipid matrix to fortify barrier function and boost resilience while preventing Trans-Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL), reducing sensitivity and increasing hydration.

The Integrity Actives

Antioxidant Lipid Coenzyme Q10 nourishes and reinforces the skin, preventing lipid oxidation and replenishing natural lipid barrier reserves, while preventing TEWL to encourage moisturising and healing processes.

The Integrity Actives

Vitamin E (Tocopherols + Tocotrienols) are lipid-soluble antioxidants which prevent the formation of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) within the skin, alleviating oxidative stress and reducing signs of solar damage, erythema and oedema. A complete complement of Vitamin E molecules enhances the synthesis of Natural Moisturising Factors (NMFs), elevating skin hydration.

The Integrity Actives

Jojoba Esters work to regenerate and repair damaged skin cells. Rich in Essential Fatty Acids, powerful antioxidants and vitamins, these naturally derived compounds help to alleviate skin sensitivity, reduce reactivity, and stimulate the synthesis of intercellular lipids.
