This organic ceramide-rich oil (Formerly biolipid) mimics the composition and structure of the skin’s lipid layers to replenish the protective barrier and restore dry, sensitive skin to balance.

New Zealand pohutukawa and ceramides deeply nourish, so skin is more moisturised and has less inflammation, irritation, and dryness for an obsession-worthy glow.

Skin Concerns: Dryness, inflammation, impaired barrier, scars, premature ageing.

NZ Pohutukawa & Lipids: 30mL 1.0 fl oz


Clinical advice

At the heart of healthy skin lies a delicate layer of lipids crucial for maintaining the skin’s oil balance and forming a protective moisture barrier against environmental aggressors.

UV exposure, pollutants, and harsh treatments can compromise this protective shield, leading to inflammation and skin issues.

Drawing from extensive research on the importance of the skin’s protective barrier, we developed Xcell to enhance its normal functioning while reducing reactivity in underlying tissues.

Xcell utilises a precise blend of skin-identical ingredients—ceramides, squalane, omegas 3, 6, and 9, and antioxidants—ingredients that are immediately recognised by the skin seamlessly integrating with the cells to calm and soothe, restore impaired barrier function, regulate sebum production, and combat premature ageing.

In clinical studies, clients experiencing inflammation, breakouts, dryness, and premature ageing reported significant improvements with consistent application in as little as 12 weeks.

Pro Tip:

Enhance your results by layering with Fortify Barrier Repair Cream, enriched with epidermal lipids, cholesterol, fatty acids, and ceramides. 


  • Deeply nourishes and moisturises
  • Skin-identical ingredients relieve dry, depleted skin
  • Boosts ceramide production, healing an impaired barrier
  • Bright orange antioxidants ward off premature ageing

How to use

Rich in linoleic acid, it enhances skin moisture retention by stimulating ceramide synthesis within skin cells.
