Someone who needs to press reset on their irritated skin can use it. More specifically:
- who washes their face more than twice a day
- who overdoes skincare by using harsh acne treatments or anti-ageing products too often
- whose skin is constantly dehydrated
- who has constant redness and dry patches
- who is sensitive to many skincare products
- who has chronic stress (yes, cortisol affects the skin barrier too!)
- who is looking to get rid of hyper-pigmentation
- who has ageing or mature skin
- anyone who intends to maintain a healthy skin barrier function
- who has skin problems associated with a damaged skin barrier
An oil that research shows has remarkable skin-regenerative properties and was traditionally used to heal wounds and cure various skin problems and ailments. It is an oil that our founder is personally OBSESSED with as it has eliminated most of her hyperpigmentation (sunspots, acne scars, other discoloration) far more effectively than any retinol or vitamin C ingredient. We know that’s a pretty big statement to make but clearly she’s onto something.
Safflower Oil & Rosehip Seed Oil
Two incredible plant-based oils that have amazing skin-nourishing benefits and are higher in linoleic acid than oleic acid. Why does that matter, you ask? Countless studies demonstrate that oils rich in linoleic acid help restore ... (you guessed it!) damaged skin-barriers. The infusion of these two oils results in a high linoleic acid concentration that creates a light consistency, which melts right into your skin without the greasiness.
NMF + Ceramides, Cholesterol, Squalane
A cocktail of ingredients that is meant to mimic a healthy skin barrier. These elements are naturally found in your skin when it is not compromised and in a restful state of zen. When life gets too stressful and your skin is put on edge, these super ingredients escape from your skin and leave it vulnerable. Replenish your skin barrier with this restorative combination.
Also known as Vitamin B3, this ingredient is the soccer mom of the skincare world who can do it all and more.

What’s more, it’s also one of the most gentle active ingredients that delivers great skin benefits without any skin irritation, making it accessible for all skin types to give a chance.
