Get that healthy and glowing skin

We believe the skin barrier plays a crucial role in maintaining healthy and glowing skin, but repeated exposure to certain environmental factors could weaken it. We designed Barrier Defender to help support and protect the skin's barrier.

Dermatologically tested for sensitive skin

Be confident that Barrier Defender is safe for you. Barrier Defender is dermatologically tested to be well-tolerated by a wide range of skin types and non-irritating for sensitive skin.

Fuss-free and simple to use

No complicated steps to remember. Simply use the Barrier Defender as you would your moisturizer. Want to layer it with your other serums? Go ahead! Barrier Defender's gentle formulation means it is unlikely to interfere with your other routine.

Is the Barrier Defender right for you?

Barrier Defender is a lightweight moisturizer developed to help support and strengthen the skin barrier. It is formulated with skin-identical lipids found naturally in the skin barrier and supported by clinical evidence.

Suitable for daily use for all skin types. Ideal for slightly dry, slightly oily, and combination skin types. Safe for you with sensitive/sensitized skin.

What is the skin barrier?

Our skin barrier is the outermost layer of our skin that acts as a shield to protect us from irritants, allergens, and pathogens from the environment. It is also a waterproof barrier that helps to minimize transepidermal water loss and prevent our skin from drying out from inside out.

Sensitive/sensitized skin that is prone to an outbreak, flushing, itchy, and tingling sensation could be a sign of a weakened skin barrier.

This could be genetic or developed over time due to repeated exposure to environmental irritants, over-exfoliation, or simply due to neglect.

With proper care, you can nurse weakened skin barriers back to health (unless it's genetically driven) and manage the symptoms associated with weakened barriers.

Packed with skin barrier friendly goodies

Barrier Defender is packed with skin barrier-friendly goodies like ceramides, cholesterols, and fatty acids, which are skin-identical lipids found naturally in our skin. Clinical studies have found that the blend of these lipids, in the proper ratio, helps with skin barrier repair.

For extra nourishment, we added natural plant-based oils like jojoba seed oil with similar composition with human sebum and rosehip fruit oil rich in linoleic acid and antioxidant properties.
