When skin loses its moisture balance, attempts to simply introduce emollients are often ineffective. The approach that CellCeuticals Moisturizers takes is to replenish the skin tissues with the necessary barrier lipids (ceramides and lipids) that they require to re-animate the moisture barrier function. CellCeuticals Moisturizers also include ingredients to gentle encourage exfoliation, to promote a faster skin cell turnover, so that the skin’s dehydrated surface and dead skin cells are quickly shed and a healthy complexion is created.
While they repair skin cell function, CellCeuticals Moisturizers also include an extensive suite of botanical extracts and oils to provide moisturizing and soothing benefits. This helps to return dehydrated skin back to a healthy moisture balance. If recovery from a very dry condition is required, the skin soon returns to a soft, supple feel and appearance. CellCeuticals Moisturizers can continue to be beneficial, even when skin has returned to a fully-hydrated state, by preventing a return to a dehydrated state. The formulas have been tested by dermatologists and ophthalmologists to determine that they are not irritating and are non-comodogenic. They are suitable for all age and skin types.
Deeply penetrating, CellCeuticals CerActive is formulated to repair the skin moisture barrier function. It treats skin tissues to soothe dry skin and promote long-lasting hydration. Essential barrier lipids, specifically ceramides, are provided to the skin tissues. A boost of sodium hyaluronate, a compound which is naturally produced by the body, helps the skin by acting as a humectant. This means that it helps to attract and maintain moisture over time, benefiting the hydration balance of the skin. Caprylic/capric triglyceride, derived from coconut, gently promotes skin exfoliation, encouraging healthy skin cell turnover so that the complexion is renewed. Allantoin, aloe, licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra) root extract, and starflower (Borago officinalis) seed oil provide soothing, anti-inflammatory benefits. A very effective suite of moisturizing oils includes shea butter, jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis) seed oil and evening primrose (Oenothera biennis) seed oil. These hydrate and rejuvenate the skin to provide a smooth, youthful complexion.
