Why we stand behind it
This deeply moisturizing contains ceramides to maintain youthful, plump, well-hydrated skin and fatty acids to balance the skin′s oil ratio.
With plant-based cholesterol to deliver an emollient and creamy texture for profound moisture and polyunsaturated fatty acids, it works to support proper barrier function. Formulated without essential oils, which are disruptive to some users with sensitive skin.
Ceramides: Lipid molecules within cell membranes, they help cells form a protective layer that plumps skin and retains moisture.
Cholesterol: An important barrier lipid, it has water-binding properties and is crucial to maintaining proper barrier function.
Fatty acids: Polyunsaturated fats crucial to proper barrier function, examples are: Cranberry Seed oil, Black Raspberry seed oil, Chia seed oil, prickly pear seed oil, evening primrose oil.
Phosphatidyl serine: A phospholipid that is an important (though small) component of the lipid barrier. Some studies show topical application slows wrinkling by inhibiting enzymes that break down collagen.
Eicosapentaenoic acid: A vegan alternative (from algae oil) to the hard-to-get type of Omega-3 (EPA) found in fatty fish.
