Due to poor condition of the skin’s natural barrier, the effectiveness of skincare products is reduced, causing the skin condition to fall back. The skin’s barrier must be in perfect condition to retain nutrients and moisture, prevent external harm, and remain healthy.
Ceramide is a major component of our skin’s protective barrier. It will decrease as we age, causing the stratum corneum to weaken, reducing its effectiveness to protect and retain moisture and nutrients, leading to dehydrated and aging skin.
Strengthens Skin by Filling in the Gaps between Keratinocytes
Extract Lock contains ceramide, which is both hydrophilic and lipophilic, and its structure is similar as keratinocytes, therefore it can be absorbed by the skin efficiently, locking in moisture between cells. An adequate amount of ceramide can help skin cells align in a tight formation, fill up the extracellular spaces between the stratum corneum and the epidermis, strengthening the skin’s barrier, allowing keratinocytes to retain moisture and nutrients.
Locks in the Active Ingredients at Dermis
Extract Lock can be easily absorbed to improve the density of keratinocytes and strengthen the skin’s protection abilities against external stimulants. It can also promote collagen formation, stimulate the growth of fibroblasts, and rebuild the extracellular matrix. This helps reduce fine lines, improve firmness, and prevent aging. With the large amount of water molecules, Extract Lock can improve the moisture circulation, preventing dry skin. With the ability to continual release of active ingredients for 24 hours, it is best to use after applying extract, which will help locking in the active ingredients in the dermis, keeping the skin hydrated and healthy.
