This aromatic balm is quintessential holistic beauty at its best, designed to rejuvenate the skin’s appearance and serve as a gentle reminder to stop and breathe, creating a sense of beauty and wellbeing.
Clients with very compromised skin often complain that their moisturising regimen is not enough; ceramide bridges that gap – Unlike other moisturisers, it won’t immediately absorb, allowing it to support epidermal recovery and offering intense, intense moisturisation.
Your barrier function is found in the stratum corneum, a specialised layer that forms the outermost part of our skin, the epidermis – it’s important from a cosmetic viewpoint, as it functions as both a physical and chemical barrier; its role is twofold:
- Prevents penetration from invading allergens and bacteria.
- Prevents evaporation of water from your skin, referred to as trans-epidermal water loss.
It is made up of layers of flattened cells surrounded by an oily, water-repellent coating that provides a formidable barrier to the outflow of water and an impermeable membrane to the environment; this oily surrounding comprises 50% Ceramides, 25% Cholesterol, and 10% Fatty Acids. These lipids are super important for the normal barrier repair function, a vital front-line that protects you against the environment; pollution, bacterial infection, UV, and more.
This balm has been intelligently formulated with skin-identical ingredients, including ceramides, that help fill the spaces between skin cells, giving them elasticity. Hence, they play a critical role in strengthening the skin barrier by maintaining moisture balance. Nourishing fatty acids linolenic and linoleic play a key role in maintaining the hydration levels in your skin, improving skin texture and suppleness while reducing inflammation and improving barrier function.
The pale blue colour comes from Chamazulene, blended with exotic botanicals and nourishing lipids to calm and appease even the most aggravated skin.
An intensely hydrating, moisturising treatment like no other, this balm provides a real sensory experience – a welcome addition to any skincare routine that indulges the skin and soothes the senses in one luxurious, fragrant step.
Use alone, or for very dry skin conditions, mix with Bio Lipid Complex and leave overnight as a healing mask.
