The Research

Playing a critical role in solar shielding and infection control, an intricately balanced lipid network of ceramides, cholesterol and triglycerides preserve skin suppleness and moisture via a living barrier known as the Stratum Corneum.

Forming a dynamic interface between the outside environment and the skin, these vital biological lipids are also crucial to immune signalling and cell-to-cell communication.

Daily replenishment of Stratum Corneum barrier structures can be accomplished through topical moisturisation formulations that augment and stabilise lipids, vitamins, minerals and proteins depleted by intrinsic ageing and environmental damage.

The Integrity Actives

Vitamin E (Tocopherols + Tocotrienols) is a lipid-soluble antioxidant that prevents the formation of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) within the skin, alleviating oxidative stress and reducing signs of solar damage, erythema and oedema. A complete complement of Vitamin E molecules replenishes moisture in the skin’s deeper layers, enhancing the synthesis of Natural Moisturising Factors (NMFs).
