Healthy skin is made up of 50% lipids & ceramides, 25% cholesterol, and 25% fatty acids. One of the main components in the skin’s moisture barrier – the fatty acids – are found throughout the dermis and are crucial to skin health. Often, these components become out of balance; factors outside of our control – including genetics, stress, and pollution – deplete natural lipid production, intensifying skin’s reactive state and weakening its protection as the barrier breaks down.
After years of research on the protective role of the barrier function, I created Bio Lipid Complex with a precise, proportionate blend of fatty acids and ingredients identical to those synthesised by the skin. Light and molecularly intelligent, lipids and omegas act like cement between the cell walls; blending with sebum to actively re-balance the barrier without aggressive action, providing protection from the entry of microbes and allergens, and preventing moisture loss.
The results are promising, with many of my clients who suffer from the dryness, inflammation, and premature ageing associated with dermatitis and eczema reporting an improvement in their symptoms as I continue to treat ‘like with like’ with skin-identical ingredients that are missing.
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.
Cholesterol: The lipids on the skins surface contain cholesterol that deplete as we age. The hydrophobic nature of cholesterol restores barrier properties of damaged skin, offering relief to dry, irritated and chapped skin.
Sea Buckthorn Oil: An important antioxidant rich in Omegas 6 and 9, as well as Vitamins A, C, E, and K, this herbal extract halts the damage caused by environmental aggressors that, left unattended, lead to premature ageing.
