WE STARTED WORKING ON THE FORMULA FOR THIS CREAM OVER 2 YEARS AGO AND WE’RE SO PLEASED WITH THE RESULT. IT USES NATURAL TECHNOLOGY TO HELP IMPROVE SKIN THAT IS VERY DRY OR DAMAGED. AFTER LOTS AND LOTS OF FORMULATING, WE CREATED THIS BEAUTIFUL, RICH HYDRATING CREAM AND IT’S NOT JUST FOR THOSE THAT HAVE SKIN HEALTH ISSUES. THE TEXTURE IS LOVELY AND IT BLENDS INTO THE SKIN BEAUTIFULLY. AS WE AGE, OUR SKIN NEEDS A BIT MORE LOVE. SUPPLE AND ELASTIC SKIN RESISTS LINES AND WRINKLES SO WE RECOMMEND IT TO EVERYONE WHEN THEIR SKIN IS PARTICULARLY DRY.

ALMOST EVERYONE AGREES THAT BARRIER CREAMS CAN BE THE BEST FOR DRY OR DAMAGED SKIN AS THEY HELP KEEP MOISTURE IN AND IRRITANTS OUT. BUT BARRIER CREAMS CAN FEEL THICK, HOT AND OILY. KIDS, IN PARTICULAR, FIND THEM TO BE VERY UNCOMFORTABLE. WE WERE ABLE TO SOLVE THIS ISSUE. CUTTING OUT ALL THE CHEMISTRY LINGO, THE CREAM WORKS BY HOLDING A WATER LAYER OVER THE TOP OF ALL THE GOOD STUFF SO WHEN YOU RUB IT INTO THE SKIN THE WATER BOND BREAKS AND RELEASES THE MOISTURISING INGREDIENTS. IT’S A QUITE NEW, NATURAL TECHNOLOGY.

WHAT IS IN IT? WELL, CERAMIDES FOR A START. THEY ARE THE FATS THAT ARE IN THE UPPER LAYER OF SKIN THAT HELP THE SKIN RETAIN MOISTURE. THERE ARE ALL SORTS OF CERAMIDES AND WE HAVE CHOSEN THE BEST MIX WE CAN (THEY’RE FANTASTICALLY EXPENSIVE BY THE WAY). WE ALSO INCLUDED MAGNESIUM, ALOE, NATURAL VITAMIN E AND MUCH MORE TO HELP KEEP SKIN AS HEALTHY AS POSSIBLE. AS ALWAYS, IT DOESN’T HAVE PARABENS, PHENOXYETHANOL, GLYCOLS OR A WHOLE LIST OF OTHER THINGS THAT WE ALWAYS AVOID WHEN MAKING ANY PRODUCT. THIS STUDY FOUND THAT SKIN HYDRATION USING A CREAM WITH CERAMIDES INCREASED SKIN HYDRATION. READ MORE ABOUT IT HERE.

WHO SHOULD BE USING IT? ANYONE WHO FEELS THEY HAVE SUPER DRY SKIN OR COMPROMISED SKIN BARRIER FUNCTION, AND WANT A BEAUTIFUL, RICH, NATURAL CREAM TO HELP IMPROVE IT.

FOR PATIENTS GOING THROUGH RADIATION TREATMENT OR CHEMOTHERAPY, THIS CREAM PROVIDES MOISTURE AND CREATES A PROTECTIVE BARRIER. IT ALLEVIATES SKIN DISCOMFORT SUCH AS DRYNESS, IRRITATION, ITCHINESS AND STINGING, AS WELL AS IMPROVES THE VISUAL APPEARANCE OF INFLAMED SKIN INCLUDING PATCHES OF WHITENESS, REDNESS, ROUGH TEXTURE AND FLAKINESS. THE PRODUCT HAS BEEN DESIGNED TO HELP NORMALISE THE STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION OF THE SKIN BY PROVIDING AN EMOLLIENT, LIPID BARRIER TO REDUCE MOISTURE LOSS. THIS IS ACHIEVED BY INCLUDING RELEVANT NATURAL MOISTURISING FACTORS (NMF) LIKE THOSE FOUND IN NORMAL, HEALTHY SKIN AND HAVE BEEN SHOWN TO BE BENEFICIAL FOR MILD TO SEVERE DRYNESS, RETURNING THE SKIN TO OPTIMAL FUNCTIONALITY. THE ANTIOXIDANTS IN THIS FORMULA ASSIST IN CALMING AND SOOTHING INFLAMED SKIN.
