What is Lipid Replenishing Cream Lipidz®
Lipids are essential components of skin that describe the strength of the skin barrier (topmost layer of skin) and how well it protects skin from the external environment. So a thin, weak or damaged skin barrier will get easily affected by potential problems and won’t be able to protect the skin.
The Lipidz cream is prepared with an objective to strengthen the skin barrier. Satin textured, white colored cream is easy to spread on the skin. The skin almost immediately drinks up the product and hydrates the outer layer.
Lipids in Your Skin
In a nutshell, lipids are skin’s natural fats. They are essential components of skin and play a crucial role in maintaining the strength of the skin’s protective barrier, which holds moisture, protects the skin from damage and keeps dirt and impurities out. They also aid the skin’s natural repair process. While there are many types of lipids, these three are the most prevalent and important for the skin and present in a Lipidz cream composition.
- Cholesterol: This lipid helps accelerate the skin barrier’s recovery and improve the appearance of skin elasticity. Visible skin aging is often caused by cholesterol deficiency on the skin. It’s important to note that cholesterol on your skin is different from the cholesterol found in the blood, and having more of it on your skin won’t cause your blood pressure to spike.
- Ceramides: This type of lipid is proven to increase the skin’s hydration and barrier function. Ceramide deficiency is the main cause of dry skin.
- Fatty acids: Abundant in young, healthy skin, fatty acids help maintain the skin’s lipid balance.
The Role of Topical Lipids
Healthy, youthful skin has an abundance of these naturally occurring lipids. As we age, lipid production declines, and this can result in rough surface texture, uncomfortable tightness, dullness, and loss of facial fullness. A compromised skin barrier is also more prone to irritation and water loss. This is why it’s important to counter the effects of lipid loss with a topical treatment.
Studies have shown that the most effective topical products for our skin are the ones with a lipid composition most identical to our skin’s own lipid composition: 1:2:1 ratio of ceramides, cholesterol, and fatty acids. With 0.5% pure ceramides, hyaluronic acid, squalene, lecithin, natural cholesterol and fatty acids, Lipidz cream is formulated with a maximized concentration of lipids in this optimal ratio. In an 8-week study, Lipidz cream significantly improved the appearance of key visible signs of accelerated aging. And it’s not just for aging skin: This potent treatment also helps reinforce the skin’s barrier both before and after cosmetic treatments, which is essential for optimal healing and results.
It is simple to incorporate this product into your existing routine. In the morning, cleanse, tone and apply a topical antioxidant like C E Ferulic serum as usual and follow with Lipidz to hydrate the skin and counter the effects of lipid loss. Then apply a broad-spectrum, mineral-based sunscreen. In the evening, cleanse, tone and apply any of retinol products, and finish with Lipidz to aid the skin’s self-repair overnight.
