Your skin barrier is essential for keeping your skin healthy and looking its best. When your skin barrier is damaged, it can lead to dryness, sensitivity, and even skin conditions like eczema. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to help repair and allow it to function properly. 

In this blog post, we will discuss the importance of the skin barrier and how to restore and protect it. We will also recommend some of our favorite skincare ingredients that just might to the trick!

What is the skin barrier?

The skin barrier is a thin layer of cells that sits on the surface of your skin. This barrier is essential for keeping your skin healthy and hydrated, as it helps to lock in moisture and keep out environmental irritants. When your skin barrier is damaged, it can lead to several problems, such as dryness, sensitivity, and skin conditions like eczema.

How to protect your skin barrier and maintain skin health

There are a few things you can do to help repair and protect your skin barrier. First, it is important to use gentle, non-irritating skincare products that won’t strip away the natural oils that help keep your skin barrier intact. You should also avoid using harsh cleansers, exfoliants, or other harsh skincare products that might cause damage. Instead, opt for gentle, hydrating products that will help restore moisture to your skin.

Best skincare for skin repair

One of the best things you can do for your barrier integrity is to use ingredients that help support and fortify it. Some of our favorite ingredients for supporting skin health include ceramides, niacinamide, and hyaluronic acid. These ingredients help replenish the skin’s natural lipids, strengthen the barrier, and keep the skin hydrated.

Ceramides help restore the skin’s natural lipid barrier, which helps to lock in moisture and keep out environmental irritants. Niacinamide is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect the skin from damage and also improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is a humectant that draws moisture into the skin, helping it stay hydrated and plump.

Metabiotic skincare for skin barrier integrity

If you’re looking for products that contain these ingredients, we recommend our metabiotics-infused clinically proven skincare. Metabiotics are a mixture of natural hyaluronic acid, lactic acid, peptides, enzymes, and other organic compounds. A specific enzyme called SMase has a specialized role in metabolizing the protein sphingomyelin. This protein is a building block of ceramides, essential molecules for skin barrier integrity.

About author

Selma Durmo M. Pharm

“As far as I can remember I have always struggled with sensitive skin. The issues culminated in my mid-twenties when I started having rosacea flares and redness. My personal quest for effective, safe solutions took a professional turn, and I was given the opportunity to apply my (Pharma) background in developing a new skin friendly product line. My goal was to create something new, a clinically proven sustainable skincare brand. This science backed probiotic skincare derived technology is a product of years of research and innovation in personal care products. Metabiotics contain naturally produced hyaluronic acid, lactic acid, SMase, lipoteichoic acid, over 40 peptides and enzymes. All assigned with specific tasks for activating the skins native repair mechanisms.”

Clean

Following the principles of Clean Beauty, we have joined the dedicated stream of safe, non-toxic beauty enthusiasts.

Our products contain carefully selected hypoallergenic ingredients suitable for sensitive and reactive skin.

We’re committed to formulating with natural, organically-derived, and skin-friendly synthetics while excluding popular “good feeling” and potentially harmful compounds to provide the best skincare solutions.

“It is easy to get hooked on conventional products, with inviting perfumes and the instantly pleasant skin feeling. The sooner you understand that those sensations are short-lived the better! Choose Clean Beauty and allow the science backed ingredients time to work wonders on your skin.”

Cinically proven

Our products’ superiority has been proven in a controlled study on 50 volunteers where it was shown that four-week product use leads to a significant increase in skin moisture levels (39%), increased skin elasticity (50%), and a decrease in the appearance of wrinkles (23%).

Other beneficial effects include decrease in skin sensitivity, increase in skin cleanliness, evenness of the skin tone, decrease in acne formation.

This study serves as proof of the skin’s gradual return of its protective layer, integrity, and balance. All study results have been published in a peer reviewed journal as well as the full study report.

“Putting all science aside, we are most proud of our users’ testimonials. All tested volunteers claim visible and tangible improvement in skin feel and appearance.”

Transparency

The greatest breakthrough discovery we stumbled upon is that skincare and cosmetics should not be sensational.

Personal care should be comprehensive, accessible, and efficient, just as all solutions that come from nature are.

We are often faced with labels such as anti aging skin care, organic skin care, natural skincare products, which lack the necessary explanation… What do these phrases actually mean?

“Grown tired of all the misleading, incomprehensive, irrelevant information used in the beauty industry we decided to stick to a no-nonsense approach. It is what it is, and skin care is not magic! It requires commitment, patience and understanding your skins’ needs.”

Sustainable

We are dedicated to neutralizing our negative impact on the environment as much as possible and have joined the stream of sustainable skincare brands. We’re taking you on for the ride (we’ve even packed the goodies)!

To help minimize our carbon footprint, for every product order a tree will be planted thanks to our amazing planters at One Tree Planted. It’s estimated that a mature tree nullifies around 20lbs of CO2 a year.

We’re doing our best to reuse, reduce and recycle. Wishing to inspire a circular economy we have partnered up, to create a customized recycling program. Collect three empty plastic packages to receive your Anbiome Recycling Envelope and follow the instructions on how to take part in our recycling mission. 

Your good deed shall be rewarded. For every three products recycled you receive one product gift!

Technology

Today’s trends in skincare require the use of synthetic active ingredients which interact with the skin. Our approach is to distinguish natural alternatives, which mimic the skins native repair mechanism and are more efficient and ecologically sound.

Translating solutions from nature into industrial settings is hardly an easy task, but it’s one we enjoy undertaking.

We have screened 500+ different wild probiotic strains from the nature, to find the most powerful ones.

Special fermentation process was developed to harvest powerful molecules (HA, LTA, SMase, LA and 40 peptides).

Result is the composition of native signal components and molecules that keep the skin balanced, healthy and protected.
