Give a warm welcome to the newest member to the ALMAdeLIA line up — the Hemp Seed Oil Barrier Repair Facial Oil.
True to our mission statement to help our community “embrace your total beauty,” we saw a need in the market for a product that truly targeted skin health at the source. With eternal respect to what nature has to offer, we developed a product that supports the invisible but amazing properties of the skin barrier. With 100% Certified Organic Hemp Seed Oil as the hero ingredient, we think your skin will love it just as much as we do.
What is the skin barrier?
Composed of three layers (the epidermis, dermis, and hypodermis), the skin barrier acts as a protective force between the body and external influences like pollutants, toxins, and chemicals. Complex in its systems, it’s important to note that the skin barrier includes a significant amount of keratin and natural moisturizers, along with fatty acids and ceramides. In addition to shielding our bodies, the skin barrier circulates essential nutrients and prevents water loss. If distressed, the skin barrier is unable to control the evaporation of key elements like water, amino acids, and ions. In addition to dehydrated skin, this leaves the barrier extra sensitive and unprotected, resulting in a compounding effect.
How could a skin barrier become damaged?
Due to the external stressors we face, the skin barrier can suffer in extreme environments. Think significantly humid, dry, sunny, or harsh weather over a period of time. Additionally psychological distress (trauma) and genetic factors (like psoriasis) influence skin barrier health. Tell tale signs that your skin barrier has had better days include inflammation, itchiness, rough patches, dry skin, and infections.
Enter the Hemp Seed Oil Barrier Repair Facial Oil — a safe haven for the skin barrier. This dreamy oil was created with external stresses in mind. With consistent use, skin will experience reduced itchiness, acne, and inflammation. Hydrated, healed, and resilient skin awaits.
Here’s Why We Love It:
- Divine hydration: Research shows that certain oils play a key role in preventing moisture loss — as this is one of the main functions of the skin barrier, stepping into supplement moisture allows the barrier to address its other benefits. We’ve packed this formula with supple and hydrating oils that will bring moisture to your skin.
- A potent cocktail of impactful ingredients: Hemp Seed Oil, always our favorite, is anti-inflammatory and attracts moisture, resulting in a supportive combination perfectly suited for fragile skin barriers. We’ve included other standout ingredients such as Sandalwood Seed Oil, Raspberry Seed Oil, Jojoba Oil, and Rosehip Oil to further nourish and improve skin elasticity by increasing water absorption.
- Delightfully Luxurious: This Oil is quickly becoming a team favorite because of the ritual of deeply hydrating the skin. Put simply, this rich oil feels like a spa experience. We love using it on a daily basis as a mainstay to your skincare arsenal.
