Ceramide NP + Cholesterol + Fatty Acids: The blend of these skin-identical ingredients are known to help repair the skin barrier. They are natural components of the stratum corneum (aka the skin barrier) and play a critical role in keeping our skin barrier healthy.

Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil: Jojoba oil is a unique plant oil due to its high wax esters content which makes it similar to natural human sebum. Jojoba oil moisturizes and helps with skin barrier repair.

Rosa Canina (Rosehip) Fruit Oil: Rosehip oil is rich in linoleic acid, an important component to maintain the integrity of the skin barrier. Rosehip oil is also a potent antioxidant and has anti-inflammatory properties.

No fragrance, essential oils, and colorants. Cruelty-free.

Pairing Barrier Defender

The Barrier Defender is designed to be light, yet moisturizing. Use it as a moisturizer or serum, whichever way you like, depending on your skin’s need at any particular time.

If you have very dry skin, you may want to use it as a serum and layer it with a heavier cream afterward.

If you have oily skin, you may want to use it as a moisturizer.


Apply 1 pump (or as needed) on clean skin. Suitable for daily use, day and nighttime. At daytime, follow with sunscreen as the last step.

Packaging Material

For the packaging of the Barrier Defender, we opt for an airless pump packaging for two reasons: (1) It protects the content from oxidation so that it lasts longer; (2) The springless pump system is easier to recycle than traditional pumps.

The bottle is made of polypropylene (PP), while the cap and pump are made of HDPE, both of which are widely recycled globally.

Plastic recyclability varies depending on the plastic types and local recycler's capacity, but PP and HDPE is one of the most widely recycled plastic globally.

Our box is made of recycled cardboard and paper.

How to recycle

Clean out the residual content (if any) with water and separate the bottle from the pump before throwing them into the recycling bin.

Healthier Skin

Sensitized skin that is prone to an outbreak, flushing, itchy, and stinging sensation could be a sign of an impaired skin barrier.

It could be something you are born with or acquired over time due to neglect, overuse of products, or other environmental factors.

The Barrier Defender is formulated to help your skin barrier recover to its healthy and more resilient state.

Barrier Defender

love the consistency and probably would use it for night time. have been using it everyday and it’s the second bottle for me :) not oily as well

Barrier Defender

I like the moistures a lot! Not too oily and keep my skin healthy.

Best moisturizer for "tropical" skin

Title says it all! And it's such a perfect moisturizer for people who live in tropical countries with extremely high humidity!!! Sooooo moisturizing yet won't make you feel oily at all throughout the day. I love it and I usually also mix this with my tinted sunscreen during the day for that extra glow from within and let people think that you're born with the perfect skin and if they ask, just say "babe I'm born with it" ;)

Lightweight and has a slightly clayish smell

Had used it over 2 weeks in the mountains of india, application was easy and kept my skin relatively moist in the dry weather, but didnt seem to help with some drier spots near my nose (perhaps I didn't apply overly generously?) But I do appreciate the lightness of the cream and doesnt make my face feel greasy or sticky. Good chance I might buy again given its value for money.
