We believe good skin health begins with a healthy moisture barrier – the protective wall.
It locks moisture in and keeps irritants out, keeping your skin healthy.
Sadly over time, environmental stressors, age, and inappropriate treatments can undermine these ingredients compromising your skin’s integrity, breaking down your barrier function. You can lose as much as 50% of Lipids from your skin which completely undermines this protective barrier. Therefore, the more variety of Lipids you have, the better your barrier will defend against all sorts of issues – ranging from premature ageing to severe dryness, breakouts or inflammation.
You can think of your protective barrier as the brick-and-mortar structure of your barrier function, containing “bricks” of Corneocytes or skin cells. Ceramides, Cholesterol and Fatty Acids are the “mortar” that keeps these bricks together.
Fortify is created with ingredients that mimic the composition and structure of your skin. It contains the perfect ratio of skin-identical ingredients that infuse with your skin’s structure, allowing it to integrate into the cells perfectly and the spaces between them to bring much-needed relief to dry, fragile, inflamed or depleted skin.
These ingredients are the science behind restoring and maintaining your barrier’s health – the armour which will ultimately keep you protected. When functioning effectively, the acid mantle’s delicate microflora is balanced, the protective barrier function is intact, and the skin is youthful and healthy.
