Exposed to environmental stress, the skin’s barrier function is altered, facilitating the penetration of irritants, and increasing Trans Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL). As a result, the skin becomes dry and presents sensitivity, associated with redness and a stinging sensation. There is a growing need for mild, soothing ingredients base that reduce skin sensitivity to aggression and enable the use of skincare and make-up products without reaction and discomfort.
Gattefossé’s lipid chemists have designed a new O/W emulsifier that reinforces the skin barrier function using their proprietary knowledge on the wax butter technology. Candelilla wax, rice bran wax, and jojoba wax have been selected for their complementary properties to create this texture ingredient.
Emulium® Dermolea MB reduces skin stress and brings long-term soothing thanks to its unique lipidic composition rich in sterols and triterpenes. Highly moisturising and protective, this ingredient is shown to reinforce the skin barrier function. Used at up to 4%, it is suitable for all skin types, in both humid and dry climates, and is adapted to skin care, sun care, makeup and scalp care, from fluid sprays to thick balms.
It is composed of two INCI: polyglyceryl-6 distearate that has emulsifying properties, and candelilla/jojoba/rice bran polyglyceryl-3 esters, the wax derivatives that bring sensoriality, efficacy, and stability.
