BIO Lipid Complex



Bring depleted skin back into bloom with this intelligent and fortifying elixir.

The unique oil mimics the composition and structure of the skin cell’s lipid bilayer, allowing its skin-identical ingredients – including Ceramides, Squalene, Phosphatidylcholine, Omegas 3, 6, and 9 and Triglycerides – to absorb into the cellular membrane; penetrating effectively to strengthen and restore the protective barrier.

Skin is more moisturised, with less inflammation, irritation, and dryness.

Daily Ritual: Apply 3-5 drops in the evening over the face, neck, and décolleté prior to moisturising.

Skin Concerns: Dry, flaky patches, inflammation, impaired barrier, superficial scars, fine lines, and over-exfoliated.



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 complex 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.

Skin Health Benefits

  • skin-identical ingredients bring instant relief to dry, depleted skin
  • optimises the synthesis of filaggrin – a key protein in the barrier function
  • comforts and calms sensitive skin; reducing inflammation and irritation
  • natural antioxidants create a bright orange hue and neutralise free radicals, warding off premature ageing
  • boosts skin’s ceramide and lipid production; improving structural integrity, rebuilding an impaired barrier


Proprietary Ceramide Blend: Lipid molecules – the key component of the top layer of skin – are fully compatible with those found within our own cell membranes that support cellular rejuvenation and reinforce the natural barrier function.
Pohutukawa: Your skin fully recognises this deeply conditioning botanical extract as being identical to the nutritive building blocks of its own structure; greatly enhancing its ability to strengthen and repair itself.
Squalane: Rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and nutrients, squalene provides moisture, protection, soothes inflammatory conditions, aids in scar healing, and relieves dry skin conditions.
Macadamia oil: With a chemical profile similar to sebum and the highest content of palmitoleic and linoleic acid – important fatty acids that deplete with age, the topical application keeps skin soft and supple and the protective barrier fully functioning
Sea Buckthorn Oil: An important antioxidant-rich in Omegas 6 and 9, as well as Vitamins A, C, E, and K, this oil halts the damage caused by environmental aggressors that, left unattended, lead to premature ageing.

    I stumbled across this site when looking for products with the correct ration of ceramides and cholesterol to repair my barrier. I have been using Bio lipid in combination with Fortify for 6 months and it is remarkable the difference in my skin. I for one could not be more grateful thank you for the work you do in trying to help people with their skin health. Sue

    I had horrible damage from microneedling and I have tried everything and gave up hope and I found this website and product. I’ve only been using for a week and already see incredible healing in my skin. I want to cry tears of joy. Thank you!!!

    • Samantha Miller

      Christine, I am so glad that I can be of service and that together we can put a routine in place that will slowly heal your skin. Thank you so much for this invaluable feedback. samantha

    I love all the products I’m using after one session of microneedling almost a year ago my perfect skin has not been the same. Inflamed skin, never before breakouts, enlarged pores. It has been a devastating year and samantha and her products have been helpful and hopeful. I started w bio and fortify but I was still inflamed so I’ve been using SOS and bio at night which so far has not irritated my skin. During the day I’m using DNA and glow before I moisturize. I will update after further use. Samantha has been so helpful and a real resource for skin and also one of the only sites that has spoken out about the real damage microneedling can do. I’m very grateful and hopeful that my skin will be on the road to better health.

      Hi Sam. This is really valuable and honest feedback thankyou so much for the review. I just wanted to point out that A+ and Glo are quite active, so a good option is to alternate with your other products, especially if your skin is very thin and barrier impaired – remember less is best especially after damage from micro needling. Good luck I really hope you get some good results. Yours in skin health Samantha

    This product should be winning awards. It is that good!

    This product made it feel like my skin actually produced oil (it doesn’t) and it gave me that beautiful, plump, moist skin that you only see on people with oilier skins – without looking or feeling oily.

    I’ve found Samantha’s products not only offer fantastic skin benefits, but an amazing sensory experience as well. I couldn’t stop patting my skin after I applied this. It really felt too good to be true.

    • Samantha Miller

      This is a hero product in the clinic and for good reason, replenishing many of the missing ingredients that becomes depleted from the skin with age, thank you for this review great feedback.

    I am very thankful for these products! I’ve been dealing with skin issues for quite some time (rosacea, PoD) but early this year, I had an acute flare on my entire face with redness, burning, painful pustules, itching etc. All attempts to calm and cure this just worsened the situation. By the time I saw a dermatologist, I was diagnosed with an impaired skin barrier. I believe this was really the underlying problem all along, however, due to multiple sensitivities with many ingredients, I was left with very little options to nourish my skin, and my skin was depleted for years. I was delighted to find Samantha’s articles on barrier repair and even more elated to see that she was using natural ingredients in her products. I am extremely careful about what I use on my skin and because of sensitivities to even some natural ingredients, it’s wonderful that Samantha will customize orders. I haven’t had to customize yet, as the H20, Lipid Complex and Fortify have been healing my skin nicely. My skin actually feels soft like skin again instead of sandpaper. Samantha is very knowledgeable about what the skin needs and more importantly has crafted skin nourishing products with natural ingredients! Additionally, she is very thoughtful and sincere in communicating with and helping her clients find the best products for individual concerns. Truly a gem!

      Dear Melinda
      I really appreciate your feedback and I am truly so happy that my skin care products are restoring your barrier and returning your skin to health, which is essentially is what my skincare journey is all about and that is very fulfilling to me, so thank you for your wonderful comment and I truly hope your skin fully recovers. Yours in skin health Samantha

    UPDATE: In the short while I have been using the skin shots (H2O, BIO, ACE) and Fortify cream, I can definitely tell an improvement in my skin. My face had become dry and rough from years of sun exposure and effects from aging. And now, my face feels softer and smoother!

    Also, Samantha goes ‘above and beyond’ in providing excellent customer service. She works hard to ensure clients get the right skin treatment for their specific needs, including creating customized treatments for special conditions. I am extremely pleased with the quality of products and services of The Naked Chemist!

    • Samantha Miller

      Cheryl thank you so much for this lovely review it means a lot. I do really try to cut through the noise about skin care and treat my clients on a one on one basis, as we are all so metabolically different, I am so glad that the products are proving beneficial and you are getting great results. Yours in skin health Samantha

    I just finished a round of ‘chemical’ treatment for an area on my nose to treat potential Actinic Keratosis. The treatment left a very small area looking as if it had incurred a bad sunburn. Post the treatment, I have been saturating it with the liquid shots (H2O, Bio, ACE) and Fortify cream, which seems to really be helping with the recovery.

    • Samantha Miller

      Dear Cheryl
      Thank you so much for your lovely feedback, i recommend to keep layering and locking H20 the humectants against your skin with lots of lovely lipids found in Bio lipid or fortify, good luck with everything and i look forward to the results -Samantha
