The function of our skin barrier is to retain moisture, prevent excess water loss and form a protective shield to prevent the absorption of bacteria and other allergens from external aggressors. When the barrier is compromised it can have an impact on overall skin health, causing dehydration and dry skin and triggering more serious skin conditions.
A targeted treatment to protect and strengthen the skin barrier is a great addition to a daily skincare routine. The Hydranet Intense Concentrate supports the skin barrier both in its formula and active ingredients:
This light, silky serum delivers a concentrated hit of active hydration for a quick and intense moisture boost, whilst encapsulating actives that specifically replenish and strengthening the skin’s barrier. How SkinSense Hydranet Intense Concentrate supports the skin barrier:
Lamellar structure technology is composed of fine, alternating layers that form an even bond with the skin, delivering ingredients that the skin needs to fight external aggressors on a daily, even hourly, basis by taking them just below the skin’s surface. These structures enable the high-quality and healthy ingredients to remain within the skin’s layers for up to 10 hours. Lamellar mimics the skin’s own lipid structure which coats the skin in an undetectable film, slowly releasing actives into the skin. This acts as a strengthening barrier/ layer of protection
Creates a protective net of hydration in the skin which locks in moisture, preventing trans-epidermal water loss and external aggressors from journeying into the skin.
Contains natural lipids which mimic the lamellar structure on the skin, stabilising the lipid barrier and restoring the natural protective function.
Builds a barrier between the skin and external pollutants, including heavy metal particles, free radicals and extreme temperature change. Has the ability to bind metal particulates to prevent them from interacting with the skin.
