Marie Veronique Kristina Holey Barrier Lipid Complex
The Marie Veronique Kristina Holey Barrier Lipid Complex is an ultra nourishing serum which corrects skin-barrier damage. This oil-serum contains ceramides to maintain youthful, plump, well-hydrated skin. Additionally, it contains Cholesterol to lubricate surface layers, delivering an emollient + creamy texture to moisturize profoundly, without risk of irritation or breakouts. And Biomemetic fatty acids balance skin’s oil ratio without essential oils to disrupt barrier lipid balance or threaten its microbiome, thus restoring skin health to optimum levels.
Intercellular lipid damage compromises barrier function, which can lead to transepidermal water loss. Damaged lipid can result in dryness, irritation and wrinkles. It follows that lipids are an integral part of skin health, and key to a well-functioning barrier system. The essence of skin moisturizing is lipid replacement, best accomplished by applying the correct lipids in the correct ratios.
Shake well. Apply approximately one dropper full into palm of hand. Massage onto face, neck and chest, avoiding eye contour area. If irritation occurs, discontinue use and consult physician. Keep in a cool, dry place, out of direct light.
