“Mango butter is a powerful emollient for dry skin, forming a naturally occlusive, protective barrier that could help to boost skin’s own natural barrier function."
“Plum oil is a hydrator and anti-inflammatory ingredient that brightens and plumps skin, protects against radical damage and oxidative stress, and aids in cellular repair, sebum production, and skin turnover.”
“Borage oil provides fatty acids necessary for the skin. It has a high linolenic acid concentration which helps promote a healthy skin barrier by replenishing the lipids in the outermost layer of the epidermis, therefore increasing hydration of the skin.”
“Ceramides are fats or lipids that are found in skin cells. They make up 30% to 40% of your outer skin layer. Ceramides are important for retaining your skin’s moisture and preventing the entry of germs into your body. If your skin's ceramide content decreases (which often happens with age), it can become dehydrated.”
“Research shows skin care products containing ceramide NP can help improve the look and feel of dry or dehydrated skin thanks to its water retention properties. Ceramide NP has also been shown to reinforce skin's barrier strength to better resist external stressors. Overall, it contributes to supple, resilient, hydrated skin.”
“As a humectant, sodium hyaluronate pulls in water from the air and helps to retain moisture to keep your skin hydrated and flake-free. It's essential for restoring and maintaining a healthy barrier to prevent transepidermal water loss (TEWL). In addition to its moisture-binding properties, sodium hyaluronate is also considered a postbiotic, meaning it can help nourish and maintain skin’s microbiome.”
“Research demonstrates there is much more to rice bran oil than its moisturizing abilities. It is a rich source of barrier repairing fatty acids, among them oleic acid, linoleic acid, and palmitic acid. Studies also indicate that rice bran oil can help target factors that lead to dark spots and uneven skin tone.”
“Avocado oil is an emollient oil similar to other non-fragrant plant oils. It has antioxidant properties and is a good source of skin-replenishing fatty acids.”
