Skin Veneer from Dp Dermaceuticals is an intense, luxurious, comforting hydrator and barrier protector. It was developed to provide intense moisture, as well as protection for the skin against harsh environmental conditions. The formulation is a powerful combination of NMFs and lipids, which have been selected to enable a 100% replication of the skin’s protective water-in-oil emulsion.
Ultimate Skin Benefits:
• Creates a natural barrier function on the skin
• Improves hydration
• Veneer like layer traps in benefits of layered corrective serums
• Visibly firms, plumps and assists with fine line wrinkles
The integrity, elasticity, and suppleness of the skin's surface is achieved when NMFs (natural moisturizing factors) and lipids, which naturally occur in the skin, work together.
Skin Veneer attempts to boost this natural function via the following ingredients:
HylaFuse (NMF) -- the HylaFuse complex is Dp Dermaceuticals' own hyaluronic acid formulation which is molecularly weighted to allow free movement of actives within the skin. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body and comprises about 15% of NMF (natural moisture factor), playing a large role in keeping the stratum corneum adequately hydrated.
Triglycerides (lipid) -- triglycerides serve as 57% of sebum composition to prevent trans-epidermal water loss and to reinforce the skin’s barrier function. Triglycerides are also known for their potent antibacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties.
Wax esters (lipid) -- wax esters are naturally produced by human skin to soothe and protect it from heat damage and moisture loss. They are an essential, naturally occurring component, comprising 25% of skin's sebum composition.
Squalene (lipid)-- possesses powerful anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties, while also helping to balance oil production in the skin to keep it looking healthy and clear. It is non-irritating and non-comedogenic, making it safe for all skin types and conditions -- including acne-prone skin.
Cholesterol (lipid) -- Cholesterol is a natural emulsifier that binds the water and oil phases in the skin. Topical cholesterol helps to replace essential fats lost during the aging process, maintains the health of the skin barrier, and ultimately results in a complexion that is smooth and well-hydrated.
Peptides -- Copper Peptides are known for their ability to promote the production of collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycans (such as hyaluronic acid) in the skin. Copper peptides can also assist in removing damaged collagen and elastin from skin and scar tissue.
Electrolytes (NMF) -- Electrolytes are mineral salts and sugars that create NMF or the water activating phase. Adding topical electrolytes to your skincare routine can help stimulate healthy cellular function and activate water exchange in the skin.
Lactic Acid (NMF) -- lactic acid is an exceptional hydrating agent and an essential component of NMF.
Sodium PCA (NMF) -- pyroglutamic acid is a naturally occurring component in human skin and plays a big role in maintaining a healthy epidermis. Sodium PCA is extremely water absorbent and can hold several times its weight in water, thus helping to reduce loss of moisture through evaporation.
In all, Skin Veneer aims to replicate the skin’s natural barrier function, protecting the skin like a biocompatible “veneer” layer, while providing premium hydration. It is suitable for people experiencing dry to very dry skin, as well those suffering from xeroderma, dermatitis, and eczema.
