For whole body health

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 MOISTURISER is designed to protect and repair your skin’s natural barrier function.

When the skin barrier is impaired, it becomes more susceptible to pollution and further damage from external aggressors, including oxidative stress and skin inflammation. Natural ceramides in the skin act as the “glue” between cells, keeping the protective barrier active like a shield. BARRIER CULTURE MOISTURISER contains ceramides to help repair the barrier and protect from the effects of pollution.

Your skin is home to billions of microbes (bacteria) which perform a synbiotic function to our skin barrier. With up to 21% of the body’s microbiome found on our skin, pre-, pro- and postbiotics in BARRIER CULTURE MOISTURISER replenish the good bacteria, balancing pH levels and protecting skin. It locks in moisture without overloading active ingredients and stripping the topical microbiome.

Overly complex beauty routines are doing 2 things; driving over 95 billion units of packaging to landfills each year, while also destroying our skin barrier. Our collection of topical supplements focuses on a less is more approach to skin health by preserving the skin barrier, reducing the amount of steps in our routines and, as a result, sending less waste out into the environment.

Ingredients

All of our ingredients are ethically and sustainably sourced, ensuring that each ingredient is clean, potent and proven.

Pre-, pro- and postbiotics

Support skin’s microbiome

Ceramides

Protect the skin barrier

Peptides

Strengthen and firm the skin

Squalane

Deeply moisturises skin

Living bacteria is hard to use in skincare, as the cell is fragile. We use a processing technique to make it stable, so our skin recognises the bacteria as "live".

This mimics natural probiotic pathways to restore the skin’s defences. Up-regulating anti-microbial peptides and filaggrin, proteins that bind the skin barrier.

FAQs

No, the probiotic technology we use in this formula is room temperature and shelf stable. It has undergone a processed technique which stabilises the microbe without splitting its cell wall so, most importantly, your skin recognises it as “live” bacteria.

Yes, this formula is safe for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

We focus on making products that do not harm people or the planet – for us, that means working with safe and clean ingredients sourced sustainably from around the world.

Absolutely, we believe the best approach comes from addressing a concern internally and externally, which is why we create topical and ingestible supplements. SKIN FILTER and SKIN HYDRATOR are great pairings for these formulas.

Yes, BARRIER CULTURE MOISTURISER works really well with THE PILL, the formulas are designed to be used together. We’d recommend using THE PILL after cleansing and before your BARRIER CULTURE MOISTURISER either morning or evening, depending on your routine.

Dermatologists and skin specialists agree that nearly all issues they see are linked to an impaired skin barrier, including breakouts and blemishes. Supporting the health of your skin through repairing your skin barrier function will reduce the symptoms of an impaired skin barrier - i.e. breakouts, dryness, redness and sensitivity. In fact, in our consumer trial over 6 weeks, 58% of people reported a reduction in breakouts.

It really depends on your skin – everyone is different. Some people see results start to appear within a week, while others may take longer. It takes around 40-50 days for a full skin cell turnover cycle, so we’d recommend testing for at least 6 weeks before assessing results.
