Your skin barrier is one of the most critical aspects of your skin health. It acts as a shield, protecting you from the outside world. The best way to protect your skin barrier is by using ingredients that support it. This blog post will discuss the best skin barrier supporting ingredients and why they are essential.

1. Biotic ingredients

Ingredients that support skin barrier function are essential for keeping your skin healthy. Biotic ingredients, such as prebiotics and probiotics, are essential for maintaining the health of your skin barrier. Our rice ferment filtrate and squalane are excellent examples of ingredients that help to keep your skin healthy.

2. Ceramides

Ceramides are a type of lipids that serve to keep the cells together and maintain their structural integrity. This is what determines how well your skin can protect itself from outside influences like dirt or other bacteria

The ceramide molecule has been compared by some researchers as "the glue" which binds these critical components in place so they don't fly away during our daily routines

3. Fatty acids

Fatty acids are an essential part of the skin's make-up, both internally and externally. They support healthy barrier function, which helps prevent water loss as well as soothing discomfort in addition to boosting suppleness! Our oils come from plants such as Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Tree Oil or Olea Europaea Fruit Oil .

4. Squalane

Squalane is an ingredient that helps to keep your skin's moisture barrier functioning at its best. This means it can prevent water loss and encourage anti-aging benefits such as increased hydration, while also correcting any issues with dryness or rough patches you may have on the surface of your complexion!

5. Humectants

Humectants like Glycerin and Hyaluronic acid work to pull water into your skin cells, keeping you moisturized as you heal the epidermis.

6. Antioxidants

Without antioxidants, your skin would be vulnerable to free radical damage and chronic inflammation. Thankfully there are many botanicals with natural anti-oxidant properties that can protect you from the effects of aging on contact; however, these same compounds also work in tandem when applied topically, including vitamin C serums for example.
