EltaMD Barrier Renewal Complex is clinically proven to moisturize the stratum corneum and improve dry, compromised skin after a single application within 24 hours. This advanced formula works to visibly minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while significantly improving skin texture, tone and pore size.
A selected blend of ceramides and other essential lipids helps strengthen the barrier and restore its natural hydration system. Enzymes and vitamins minimize the appearance of redness and promote skin cell turnover. Within 21 days, skin appears softer, smoother, healthier and more youthful. EltaMD Barrier Renewal Complex is fragrance-free, paraben-free, sensitivity-free and noncomedogenic.
- Squalane: Naturally-occurring lipid derived from olives protects against moisture loss, makes skin more elastic and pliant, thereby improving the barrier structure of the natural lipid film.
- Biotin: Enhances the overall organizational structure of the skin, increases flexibility and smoothness of skin by promoting the synthesis of lipids.
- Ceramides – Ceramide NP, Ceramide NS, Ceramide EOS, Ceramide EOP, Ceramide AP: Provides protection by correction and repair of membrane defects of the stratum corneum lipid barrier. Increases the water transport mechanism known as aquaporin-3, amplifying hydration.
