Relipidium™ – The Microb’eauty Technology
Every day, our skin is exposed to environmental stresses: the sun and air-conditioning in the summer followed by cold weather, wind and central heating in winter, promote skin dryness. Skin becomes sensitive and less comfortable. Frequent showers and detergents damage lipids. The intercellular cement is worn away and the epidermal layer dries out.
The reason of dehydration is an impairment of the skin’s barrier function disrupts the cutaneous ecosystem and alters our skin’s natural microbial biodiversity. The resulting dryness in turn provokes an imbalance in the flora: the skin dehydrates itself.
To reverse the process and correct skin dryness, BASF Care Creations experts have developed Relipidium™, an extract of yeast modified by biotechnology.
Relipidium™ is the first active ingredient that restores the skin barrier to rebalance skin ecosystem and acts to correct skin dryness.
- Restores skin barrier by stimulating epidermal lipid synthesis and speeding up its recovery.
- Improves skin awareness by increasing in vitro TLR-2 and Dectin-1a activation (two foreign germ detectors).
- Rebalances the skin ecosystem by strengthening the barrier effect without direct effect on skin bacteria: no antibiotic nor prebiotic activities.
- Reduces transepidermal water loss in-vivo at 1%
