Everything you need to know about our skin barrier and restoring the skin's natural defence

The Skin Barrier - Your Body's First Defender

Imagine your skin barrier as a superhero shielding your body. It is a natural defence system, constantly ensuring your safety. The skin barrier has multiple layers, and works tirelessly to keep you safe from various external threats. Here are some of the ways it protects your body.

Fight Against Infections

Our skin is a defender against pathogens like bacteria, viruses, and fungi. This physical barrier acts like a shield, keeping these tiny troublemakers out and reducing the risk of getting sick.

Regulates Moisture

Our skin plays a crucial role in holding onto moisture and stopping hydration from escaping. When your skin barrier is in top-notch shape, it ensures your body stays well-hydrated, warding off problems like dryness and dehydration.

Shields Against UV Radiation

Our skin barrier acts as a frontline defence against the sun's harmful UV radiation. Although using sunscreen is still necessary, a robust skin barrier adds an extra layer of protection, ensuring you're properly shielded against these rays.

Sensation and Temperature Regulation

Our skin is a super sensor, thanks to nerve endings that pick up on touch, pressure, temperature, and pain. Plus, it's a pro at regulating your body temperature. It does this by sweating and managing heat exchange with the world around you.

Allergen Defense

Think of our skin barrier as a reliable guardian warding off any allergies. It is a resilient shield that effectively blocks allergens and safeguards you from potential discomfort or allergic reactions that could otherwise disrupt your well-being.

Healing and Repair

The skin barrier emerges as a key player when injuries strike. Functioning as a biological conductor, it heals your body through a process of regeneration and repair. This ensures not only the restoration but the improvement of the body's protective shield.

Protecting your skin barrier is like having a solid game plan for your well-being.
Understand and show some love for your skin barrier, and you've got the secret to a healthy skin.
Happy skin, happy you!

B-Restore™ Formulation Technology Key Ingredients

B-Restore™ formulation technology is specifically designed to improve both the microbiological and physical barriers of the skin, which helps to support a healthy skin microbiome and encourages the growth of beneficial bacteria. This product also provides essential omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids that help to promote the formation of ceramides, which are crucial for maintaining the skin barrier function.

Lactobacillus Ferment Lysate

Promote Healthy Microbiome

The World Health Organization (WHO) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO) define probiotics as "live micro-organisms." These micro-organisms are beneficial for activating the immune and metabolism cells in our body. However, due to skin structure, the effects of probiotics are relatively small. Incorporating probiotics into skincare formulations is also challenging. Thanks to our advanced and patented technology, we have successfully incorporated Lactobacillus Ferment Lysate, a unique bio-active substance found in probiotics cells, into our formulation. This substance promotes a healthy skin microbiome and minimizes the disruption of beneficial bacteria.

Upcycled Bilberry Seed Oil

Increase Natural Ceramides

Bilberry, also known as wild blueberry or Vaccinium myrtillus L., is a medicinal plant that is rich in anthocyanosides (purple). The skin and pulp of the bilberry fruit contain anthocyanosides, while the seed contains essential compounds known as PUFA (Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids). Recent research indicates that bilberry is an excellent source of α-linolenic acid, a type of essential fatty acid that is vital for human health. The seeds of bilberry also contain a wide range of unsaturated fatty acids, including omega-3, omega-6, and oleic acid, making them an excellent source of essential PUFA.

Tasmanian Pepper Berry

Soothe and Calm The Skin

The Tasmanian Pepper Berry (Tasmannia lanceolata) thrives in the mountains of south eastern Australia. It is a hardy species, tolerating cold winter temperatures and surviving on rocky and exposed windy sites. The Tasmanian pepper berry contains a powerful active ingredient called polygodial. It is an anti-inflammatory agent effective at reducing vasodilatation and oedema. Studies have demonstrated that polygodial calms discomforted skin.

Understanding and Improving Your Skin Microbiome

The skin microbiome is akin to a bustling little community of tiny creatures. We're talking bacteria, fungi, viruses, and even mites – all hanging out on the surface of your skin! It's like a community where they coexist and get along with our skin cells, creating this happy, balanced ecosystem.

These microorganisms aren't just living freely on our skin. They are the ultimate skin warriors, keeping things in check and maintaining the balance. It's like having a tiny army of defenders. So what do they do and what affects them?

Regulates skin immunity

The skin microbiome plays a vital role in training and modulating the immune system. It helps to fine-tune immune responses, making the skin more efficient in combating pathogens while reducing the risk of inflammation and allergies.

Maintains skin barrier function

The skin microbiome acts as a barrier to water loss, helping the body retain essential moisture. A healthy skin barrier ensures that the body is properly hydrated, preventing issues like dryness and dehydration.

Influences skin conditions

Imbalances in the skin microbiome can lead to various skin conditions such as acne, eczema, rosacea, and psoriasis. In conditions like acne, for example, an overgrowth of certain bacteria can clog pores and cause inflammation.

Antibiotics and antimicrobial agents

The use of antibiotics and antimicrobial products can disrupt the balance of the skin microbiome by killing both harmful and useful bacterias. Prolonged or unnecessary use of such products can lead to an overgrowth of certain pathogens and a reduction in microbial diversity.

Topical skincare products

Harsh or inappropriate skincare products, particularly those with strong detergents and preservatives, can disturb the skin's pH balance and strip away natural oils that support the growth of beneficial microorganisms.

Stress & Age

Chronic stress can affect the skin's barrier function and disrupt its microbiome, leading to an increased risk of skin problems. The skin microbiome can also change with age, as infants, children, adults, and the elderly may have different microbial compositions.

Keeping your skin balanced and hydrated is key to maintaining its natural defence system and supporting that awesome community of microorganisms. This includes using the right moisturiser that it needs to thrive.

B-Restore™ Barrier Cream
Proven Effective in Improving Skin Microbiome

CelRevive B-Restore™ Barrier Cream is the partner your skin barrier needs to stay happy and healthy. Testing by Princeton Consumer Research shows its effectiveness in increasing skin moisturisation level and reducing Trans Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL).

A study among 15 healthy males and females aged over 18 was used evaluate any improvement to skin barrier functionality and skin moisturisation. The following results were recorded.

  • Immediately increase skin moisturisation level by 339% at 1 hr and remaining +147% after 24 hours
  • Significantly reduce TEWL by 35.95% after 1 hr and maintain reduction level for 24 hrs
