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, harsh products and inappropriate treatments can undermine essential ingredients in your skin, breaking down the barrier function. As much as 50% of Lipids can be lost from your skin, damaging this protective barrier. Therefore, the more variety of Lipids you have, the better your barrier will defend against many skin conditions 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 skin, containing “bricks” of Corneocytes or skin cells. Ceramides, Cholesterol, and Fatty Acids are the “mortar” that holds these bricks together whilst preventing irritants and harmful bacteria from entering.
Fortify contains ingredients that mimic the composition and structure of your skin. It has the perfect ratio of skin-identical ingredients that infuse your skin’s structure, allowing it to integrate into the cells perfectly and the spaces between them to relieve dry, fragile, inflamed skin.
These ingredients are the science behind restoring and maintaining your barrier’s health – the armour which will ultimately keep your skin healthy. When functioning correctly, the acid mantle’s delicate microflora is balanced, the protective barrier function is intact, and your skin is youthful.
