Your skin health begins with rebuilding the natural barrier function and eliminating inflammation.
A layer of lipids covers the surface of your skin, playing an integral role in skin health, maintaining the balance of sebum (oil) on the surface, creating a balanced moisture barrier whilst also keeping microbes out.
Stress, UV, and pollutants can knock these components out of balance, impairing your barrier function. Without this invisible shield, water escapes from your skin, causing dehydration, initiating an immune response that can lead to redness and inflammation; additionally, elevated oil levels can occur – a major factor involved in acne’s pathophysiology.
After years of research on the protective role of the barrier function, we created Bio Lipid to bridge this gap, bring sebaceous secretions back into balance, and tackle the underlying causes of inflammation. The precise, proportionate blend of lipids – identical to those found in the dermis keeps your skin’s barrier functioning effectively as underlying tissues become less reactive and skin correction becomes easier.
Many of our clients suffer from eczema conditions and inflamed breakouts, including dryness, inflammation, and premature ageing. They have reported an improvement in symptoms in as little as 12 weeks with regular application.
Tip: Bio lipid contains sebaceous lipids, including triglycerides, phospholipids, and squalene, which fill the spaces between your skins cells, like mortar or cement, replenishing and repairing your barrier function. Layering over Bio lipid complex with Fortify barrier repair cream, which contains epidermal lipids – cholesterol, fatty acids, and ceramides, will help repair impaired skin further – locking those all-important lipids against your skin.
Phospholipids Lipid molecules are the key components of the epidermis; they are fully compatible with your skin, supporting cellular rejuvenation and reinforcing the skins barrier function.
Pohutukawa: Skin 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 the skin.
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 ensures your skin stays soft and supple.
Sea Buckthorn Oil: An important antioxidant-rich in Omegas 6, 9, and Vitamins A, C, E, and K, it halts the damage caused by environmental aggressors left unattended, lead to premature ageing.
