Strengthens the Skin Barrier
A healthy skin barrier is vital for healthy skin. It is our body’s first line of defense against extrinsic aggressors, such as UV radiation, pollution, allergens, and bacteria. It also prevents moisture loss.
The skin barrier is composed of stratified layers of keratinocytes, the predominant cell type of the epidermis. Keratinocyte differentiation is the process by which these epidermal cells grow into layers, reaching from the depths of the epidermis to the skin’s surface. Robust keratinocyte differentiation—driven by proteins including involucrin, filaggrin, and transglutimase-1—is directly correlated to a strong skin barrier.
BL+ COMPLEX increases the transcription of the genes that encode for these proteins, amplifying keratinocyte differentiation and improving the strength and function of the skin barrier.
