Proven! Our team of chemistry whizzes has analyzed this product’s label claims, and the ingredients that deliver them. Here’s the science behind why it works.
The Claim: Reinforces Lipid Barrier
Ingredient: Cocoa butter - Used to make white chocolate, cocoa butter helps reinforce the lipid barrier on the skin and prevents water loss. Read study.
Ingredient: Shea Butter - This emollient extract from the African shea nut contains fat compounds that stimulate cell regeneration and collagen synthesis. That means smoother, softer skin from the inside out! Read study.
Ingredient: Beeswax - In chemist-speak, this fatty-acid packed wax is known as a ‘barrier cream’ – which means it helps decrease water loss on the skin by strengthening the skin’s natural lipid layer. Bonus: Beeswax has also been shown to strengthen elastin fibers (your skin’s support structure). Read study.
Ingredient: Olive Oil - This anti-oxidant rich plant oil mimics our skin’s natural sebum - making it a superior lipid barrier protectant. Bonus: The oil also helps protect skin from the damaging effects of UV rays. Read study.
