Cooling to my sensitive, oily skin

I do believe that this serum has calmed my skin down quite a bit. I used to get these itchy, dry spots and sometimes hives on my face, specifically along my temples, cheeks and forehead. I was using a lot of different things on my face and I wasn't sure what I had reacted to. I stopped and started using a fragrance free wash and moisturizer for a few months, but I still had those itchy spots that would pop up. I ordered the ceramide barrier serum to see if this would somehow help my skin. I have gone through two bottles now. It's the only serum that I have added back in and and those itchy spots have completely disappeared. The CBS is also hydrating and it seems to soak into my skin quickly. I have oily skin and would avoid serums, but this one is not heavy at all and it's really gotten my skin to a healthy point. I can't really chalk this change up to diet, because I haven't changed a thing in my diet. I also use the same shampoo/conditioner and my scalp doesn't react to either of those products. Convinced that the CBS saved my skin.

Incredible Product

I bought this to help with my dry skin. I’m a nurse and wear a mask for 12 hours and the dryness was getting to be a lot. It has worked wonders. It is light yet moisturizing. My skin doesn’t feel oily or heavy after use. Definitely recommend.

Frequently asked questions

ceramides are a type of lipid naturally found in the stratum corneum (the outermost layer of skin). Ceramides make up approximately 50% of your skin barrier and are an essential part of the skin’s extracellular matrix.

ceramides play a critical role in maintaining a strong barrier to protect skin against dehydration, irritation, and signs of aging. Ceramides help prevent transepidermal water loss (TEWL) by helping skin retain moisture. Additionally, around the age of 30, the extracellular matrix’s composition naturally changes and produces a lower percentage of ceramides, cholesterol, and free fatty acids.

the skin barrier is considered the stratum corneum (the outermost layer of skin) and the extracellular matrix. The extracellular matrix is composed mostly of lipids (ceramides, fatty acids, cholesterol) in addition to collagen, elastin, and enzymes. You can think of the skin barrier as a brick wall, the skin cells are the bricks and the extracellular matrix is the mortar holding the bricks together.

stop anything that can be irritating your skin (over cleansing or exfoliating, exposure to extreme temperatures, etc) and replenish your skin with ingredients like ceramides, humectants, and emollients. Our ceramide barrier serum contains all three!

ceramides are most effective when they are used with cholesterol and fatty acids to mimic the skin’s lipid layer. 

our products are always formulated to be effective and gentle. however, we always recommend showing our ingredients list to your doctor or health care provider to confirm safety for you specifically!
