Dry, irritated and sensitive skin often lacks ceramides and as a result, the skin protective barrier is compromised. By adding ceramides to the skin, the skin’s barrier is strengthened.
Reduces skin sensitivity and reinforces the skin’s natural barrier function. It softens the skin’s surface and provides good moisturisation and long-lasting hydration. It has been dermatologically tested, is non-irritating and hypoallergenic. It is also readily biodegradable and non-toxic to marine life.
