By replenishing the skin's essential lipids and lamellar bilayers, this intensely moisturizing complex promotes optimal recovery for dry skin and aids in repairing impaired barrier function.

The results of using Enriched™ are remarkable. Your skin will experience a newfound smoothness with deep hydration that lasts. Moreover, your skin’s resilience will improve, allowing it to withstand external aggressors better and maintain optimal health.


Essential Fatty Acids

Essential Fatty Acids: Nourishing Your Skin from Within

In the realm of dermatological science, essential fatty acids (EFAs) have emerged as unsung heroes, offering a multifaceted approach to improving skin health in patients with conditions such as eczema and dry skin. 

Biochemical Brilliance

Essential fatty acids, including omega-3 and omega-6, are the building blocks of the skin's lipid barrier. This barrier acts as a protective shield, preventing excessive moisture loss and shielding the skin from external aggressors. EFAs play a pivotal role in maintaining this barrier's integrity by contributing to the synthesis of ceramides and lipids that bind skin cells together.

Pharmacological Advantages

EFAs are not only instrumental in maintaining the skin's structural integrity but also possess anti-inflammatory properties. They serve as precursors for pro-resolving lipid mediators like resolvins and protectins, which help reduce skin inflammation, itching, and redness—common symptoms of eczema.

Physiological Harmony

EFAs contribute to maintaining the balance of skin hydration. They enhance the skin's ability to retain water, leaving it supple and hydrated. Moreover, EFAs can modulate the skin's immune response, reducing the severity of allergic reactions and flare-ups often seen in dermatological conditions like eczema.

Niacinamide

Niacinamide offers several benefits for the skin, primarily due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It has been shown to be effective in reducing the redness and inflammation associated with acne, rosacea, and other inflammatory skin conditions. Additionally, niacinamide's ability to improve the skin's barrier function makes it beneficial for all skin types, particularly for those with eczema or mature skin.

Another significant benefit of niacinamide is its role in reducing hyperpigmentation. Studies have shown that it can decrease the transfer of melanin to the skin's epidermis, helping to fade dark spots and even out skin tone.

Niacinamide also plays a role in reducing the visible signs of aging. It has been found to stimulate collagen production and improve skin elasticity, reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Its antioxidant properties further protect the skin from environmental damage, such as pollution and UV radiation, which contribute to premature aging.

The efficacy of niacinamide and its ability to address multiple skin concerns simultaneously has led to its growing popularity in both over-the-counter and prescription skincare formulations.

Physiological Effects of Niacinamide
  1. Barrier Function Enhancement: Niacinamide helps strengthen the skin’s barrier function by increasing the production of ceramides, which are lipids that keep the skin hydrated and protect against environmental damage.
  2. Anti-inflammatory Properties: It has notable anti-inflammatory effects, which are beneficial in reducing redness and inflammation associated with acne, eczema, and other inflammatory skin conditions.
  3. Sebum Regulation: Niacinamide can regulate sebum production, which helps in controlling excess oiliness and can be beneficial for acne-prone skin.
  4. Hyperpigmentation Reduction: It is known to reduce hyperpigmentation by inhibiting melanosome transfer from melanocytes to keratinocytes, leading to an even skin tone.
  5. Anti-aging Effects: Niacinamide helps in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by boosting collagen production and improving skin elasticity.
  6. Antioxidant Activity: It has antioxidant properties, protecting the skin from oxidative stress and environmental aggressors like UV radiation and pollution.
Role in Managing Dermatological Conditions
  1. Acne and Oily Skin: By regulating sebum and reducing inflammation, niacinamide is effective in managing acne and oily skin conditions.
  2. Hyperpigmentation and Melasma: Its ability to reduce melanin transfer makes it beneficial in treating hyperpigmentation and melasma.
  3. Aging Skin: Its anti-aging properties make niacinamide a popular ingredient in skincare products targeting wrinkles and loss of firmness.
  4. Skin Barrier Disorders: Niacinamide is beneficial in the treatment of skin barrier disorders like atopic dermatitis and eczema, by enhancing barrier function and hydration.
  5. Photodamage and Skin Protection: It helps in mitigating the effects of photodamage and provides some degree of protection against environmental damage.

Ceramides

Ceramides, a family of lipid molecules naturally present in the skin, are integral to the structure and function of the skin barrier. They are a type of lipid that, along with cholesterol and fatty acids, forms a critical part of the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of the skin. This layer is essential for maintaining skin hydration and protecting against environmental aggressors.

Ceramides, which make up about 50% of the skin's lipid composition, play a pivotal role in maintaining the skin's barrier integrity and preventing transepidermal water loss (TEWL). By doing so, they help keep the skin hydrated and supple.

The loss or reduction of ceramides in the skin barrier is associated with several dermatological conditions, including eczema and psoriasis, where the skin becomes dry, itchy, and prone to irritation and infection. Studies have shown that the application of ceramide-containing moisturizers can effectively improve skin barrier function and increase skin hydration levels.

Ceramides are particularly beneficial for aging skin, which naturally loses ceramides over time, leading to drier and more fragile skin. By replenishing the skin's ceramide content, these products can help combat the signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles.

Ceramides are integral to maintaining skin health, particularly in conditions where the skin barrier is compromised. Their role in hydrating the skin, reducing sensitivity, and improving barrier function makes them an essential component in the management of various dermatological conditions, especially eczema, psoriasis, and dry or aging skin.

Physiological Effects of Ceramides
  1. Barrier Function: Ceramides are critical components of the skin's lipid barrier. They help to prevent moisture loss and protect against environmental aggressors like pollutants and irritants.
  2. Hydration: By maintaining the barrier integrity, ceramides keep the skin hydrated, preventing dryness and keeping the skin supple.
  3. Reducing Skin Sensitivity: They play a role in reducing skin sensitivity and irritation, helping to calm inflamed and reactive skin.
  4. Anti-aging Properties: Ceramides can improve skin elasticity and firmness, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  5. Wound Healing: There is evidence to suggest that ceramides can aid in the skin's natural wound healing process.
Role in Managing Dermatological Conditions
  1. Eczema and Atopic Dermatitis: Ceramides are often used in the treatment of eczema and atopic dermatitis, where the skin barrier is compromised, leading to dryness, itching, and inflammation.
  2. Psoriasis: They can help in managing psoriasis by maintaining skin hydration and barrier function, reducing scaling and dryness.
  3. Aging Skin: Ceramide-containing products are beneficial in anti-aging regimens due to their ability to improve skin barrier function and elasticity.
  4. Dry Skin (Xerosis): In the treatment of dry skin, ceramides help in restoring skin hydration and barrier function.
  5. Sensitive Skin: Products containing ceramides are suitable for sensitive skin as they help to restore the skin's natural barrier and reduce irritation.
