In my professional opinion, skin health begins with rebuilding the natural barrier function and eliminating inflammation.
A layer of sebaceous lipids including triglycerides, wax esters, and squalane cover the surface of the skin, and play an important role in healthy skin functions, and balancing sebum on the skin. These important Lipids blend with sebum to create a barrier that keeps moisture in and microbes out, helping to keep the acid mantle intact.
Often, these components become out of balance, as factors beyond our control – including genetics, stress, and pollution – deplete their production and cause the barrier to break down. Without this invisible shield, water can escape the skin, causing it to dehydrate and initiate an immune response that results in redness and inflammation. In addition, elevated sebaceous levels can occur, a major factor involved in the pathophysiology of acne
After years of research on the protective role of the barrier function, Bio Lipid Complex was created to fill this gap, to naturally bring the skin and its sebaceous secretions to a state of balance, and to tackle the underlying causes of inflammation. Its precise, proportionate blend of Lipids, identical to those found in the dermis helps to keep the barrier functioning efficiently – as the underlying tissues become less reactive, skin correction becomes easier.
Many of my clients who suffer from dryness, inflammation, premature ageing, conditions associated with dermatitis and eczema and inflamed breakouts, report an improvement in their symptoms as I continue to treat ‘like with like’ using skin-identical ingredients, to restore skin back to health.
As a side note, Bio Lipid complex was formulated to replenish and balance the surface lipids, which are not to be confused with the epidermal lipids found in the composition of the stratum corneum, both Fortify and Ceramide contain important epidermal Lipids Ceramides and Cholesterol to fill the spaces between the cell walls, by layering with Bio lipid you are not only rebuilding your skins barrier function but also beginning to bring the skins acid mantle and sebaceous secretions into balance – giving your skin a complete program of health.
