Introducing our Skin Biome & Barrier + Hydration Support Water Cream. This versatile lightweight, hydration-boosting bouncy cream supports a healthy skin biome (a first for GOPURE!) and lipid barrier to lock in hydration and keep the skin feeling soothed and protected against environmental aggressors. It improves the look of enlarged pores, balances shine, and minimizes the appearance of lines, redness, and irritation.
- Can be used as a daily moisturizer for combination/oily skin or anyone that enjoys a lightweight yet deeply hydrating moisturizer. Great for skin prone to redness and sensitivity.
- Can be used as a makeup primer for a more perfected and calmed skin surface.
- Can be used as a barrier support ‘gel serum’ or sleeping mask for anyone who wants the benefits of barrier support or has a compromised skin barrier as a result of skin aging or UV exposure.
- Pairs easily with other skincare ingredients, including vitamin C, exfoliants, and retinol.
- Can be used day or night!
This cream features 5% Niacinamide (B3) and 3% Panthenol (B5). Both have barrier-supportive skin and skin-perfecting (and pore-fecting) benefits. Niacinamide, aka Vitamin B3, minimizes the appearance of enlarged pores and improves the look of textured skin, restores the skin’s natural defenses against moisture loss and dehydration, as it improves barrier function, and visibly evens out skin tone, hyperpigmentation, and dark spots.
Provitamin B5, is a hydrating and nourishing ingredient famous for its ability to attract/retain moisture. It may also help reduce sensitivity-induced redness in the skin. It is a barrier-supportive humectant and emollient that keeps skin looking hydrated and moisturized.
Your Barrier Bestie!!
A strong skin barrier is CRUCIAL for locking in skin hydration, keeping skin aggressors out, and keeping skin balanced. A damaged and weak skin barrier can make our skin MORE susceptible to excess oil, shine, breakouts, redness, irritation, and dehydration.
With aging, there is a decline in ceramides and cholesterol in the upper layer of the skin, which leads to dry skin and irritation. Ceramides and Cholesterol are vital components of our skin’s natural protective lipid barrier. These lipids play an essential role in structuring and maintaining the ‘permeability barrier’ of the skin. They keep skin looking hydrated, protected from external skin aggressors, and feeling supple. iACTIVE CERAMIDE replenishes the skin’s barrier with 5 ceramides and cholesterol. It keeps skin looking hydrated by preventing water loss, provides a long-lasting moisturizing effect, improves skin barrier function, and increases the softness, gloss, and texture of the skin. Nourishing Squalane works WITH the iActive Ceramide compound to complete the barrier matrix blend.
It also contains GOPURE’S FIRST Biome Active compound that is clinically proven to support a healthy skin biome! Our skin needs ‘good skin bacteria’ to stay looking feeling, and functioning properly. BIOME Oléoactif® is microbiome-friendly with post+prebiotic skincare. It is a skin barrier function strengthener & support, and prevention of imbalanced skin conditions, promotes skin protection against harmful skin bacteria and aggressors and inflammation, promotes better skin oxygenation, and balances and promotes healthy skin biome conditions.
We’re not done making your skin happy & hydrated yet….
Saccharide Isomerate is a natural and plant-derived (from corn) moisturizer that mimics the natural compound found in the upper layer of the skin. It has a powerful ability to bind to the skin stronger and longer than other moisturizer ingredients do so it can keep the skin hydrated longer than it would normally.
