The skin’s outermost layer, the Stratum Corneum, is made up of an intricately balanced composition of lipids, including ceramides, cholesterol and triglycerides. This living barrier exists to protect skin from external hazards, keeping it hydrated and supple while helping to shield against sunlight and other environmental aggressors. A thorough nightly cleansing regimen can assist in the replenishment of vital Stratum Corneum lipids and proteins, which are otherwise diminished a result of ageing and environmental damage. Skin lipid esters assist in breaking down surface debris, including sunscreen actives and makeup which are removed with the addition of water, while simultaneously boosting concentrations of native surface lipids to fortify barrier function.
