Barrier Culture uses patented technology to rebuild the topical microbiome, protect against pollution, and lock in moisture.
A replacement to your double-cleanse, this treatment cleanser deeply cleans the skin, removing dirt, pollution and makeup, without stripping or disrupting the skin's pH.
The soap-free and sulfate-free formula actively repairs the skin barrier and replenishes the topical microbiome by using prebiotics, probiotics and postbiotics to leave your skin balanced, smooth and nourished.
Over 90% of skin conditions can be traced back to an impaired skin barrier, the skin's natural immune system responsible for defending against pollution, UV light, infection and locking in hydration. Barrier Culture Cleanser is designed to protect and repair your skin's natural barrier function, as well as replenish your topical microbiome. Your skin is home to trillions of microbes (bacteria) which perform a symbiotic function on our skin barrier, helping to maintain pH balance and protect the skin. Of the trillions of bacteria making up your microbiome it's estimated that 26% of that is found in your gut, while 21% is found on your skin.
Much like our gut, everyday stressors actively impair our skin's microbiome and barrier. This includes pollution, stress and over washing, with the main culprit being the overloading of active ingredients on the skin.
Deep Cleaning, Not Stripping: Thoroughly cleans the skin without stripping natural oils or disrupting the pH balance. The sulfate-free formula melts away makeup, dirt and pollution and leaves the skin feeling comfortable and soft.
Repopulates The Microbiome: The proprietary blend of prebiotics, probiotics and postbiotics rebuilds the skin's microbiome, keeping pollution and stressors out, and moisture in.
PH Friendly: The low pH cleanser (pH 5) matches the naturally slightly acidic pH of healthy skin (around pH 4.5-5). Unlike most foaming or wash-off cleansers, it doesn't push the skin into an alkaline state which can cause breakouts, sensitivity and irritation.
How to use:
Use in the evening to remove daily grime, makeup and pollution from the skin. Apply 1-2 pumps to damp skin, massage in and then rinse clean with warm water. Pat skin dry. Follow with Barrier Culture Moisturiser.
