For over 20 years, these ingredients have been skincare darlings, implying their effectiveness in addressing foundational skin concerns.

[Consequences of a Compromised Barrier]
A compromised skin barrier poses a dual threat. Firstly, even top-tier products struggle to penetrate and function effectively, rendering them less impactful. Secondly, the entry of harmful bacteria can trigger acne, itching, or worsened dryness over time.
