When the skin's natural barrier is disturbed, the skin tends to become irritable. It is no longer able to adequately protect itself against external influences such as climatic conditions, sunlight, environmental toxins, etc. It also reacts increasingly sensitively to foreign substances. The consequence: redness and irritation.
Skin Defense Cream, a rich care formula with a lipid content of 25%, is the ideal care for sensitive and irritable skin. With its special active substances, it helps to restore an intact hydrolipidic film. Redness and skin irritation are reduced and the skin's resilience is increased, therefore preventing the occurrence of new irritation. The irritated skin rapidly becomes soft and supple again; the well-being of relaxed skin is guaranteed.
Purpose and function
Ideal care cream for sensitive skin
Fortifies the hydrolipidic barrier and thus the skin's native protection
Reduces skin redness and prevents it from recurring
Also ideal as a wind and weather protection cream
Leaves the complexion looking rested and even
Restores the skin's well-being
Main active substances
Skin Guard Complex: Highly-active plant extract consisting of active substances from Cardiospermum Halicacabum (balloon vine which grows in the tropics), Echium Plantagineum (echium seed oil) and unsaponifiable constituents of sunflower oil. A study has shown that Skin Guard Complex reduces skin sensitivity by 49% after four weeks'
application. It additionally prevents the occurrence of redness and fortifies the hydrolipidic barrier.
α-Bisabolol: Obtained from chamomile oil; a proven ingredient for soothing the skin
Isostearyl-Isostearate: emollient based on sustainable raw plant materials; fortifies the hydrolipidic barrier via the cohesion of the lipids in the Stratum Corneum and reduces the skin's trans-epidermal water loss
Hyaluronic Acid: Produced using biotechnology, it possesses a fill-in effect which "pads out" the skin from the inside out. The skin is lifted extensively.
Saccharide Isomerate: Sustainably improves the skin's moisture retention capacity, as this combination of various sugar compounds binds firmly to the surface of the skin and is not rinsed off during washing. Saccharide Isomerate prevents moisture loss – even under dry environmental conditions
Squalane: Obtained from plant-based olive oil, similar to the skin's natural lipid; prevents dehydration (moisture loss); skin-smoothing; is easily absorbed without leaving the skin feeling greasy
Home care application
During the Skin Renewal & Cellular Stimulation treatment course – i.e. the use of fruit acids – and a further 4 weeks afterwards, the skin reveals increased sensitivity to light. The following recommendation for the home therefore applies during this period:
In the morning: Skin Defense Serum and then Premium Age Protector SPF 30
In the evening: Skin Defense Serum and then Skin Defense Cream.
When the skin is less sensitive to light, Skin Defense Cream can be used as both a day and night cream depending on the skin's needs.
A massage can be carried out after Peel20 Exfoliator has been applied, providing the condition of the sensitive skin allows this.
For a massage: distribute Skin Defense Cream onto the face, neck and neckline. To improve its sliding properties, then pour on a few drops of Massage Serum and massage as usual.
Depending on the time of year and the time of day, use Premium Age Protector SPF 30 (if the skin could still be exposed to UV rays) or Skin Defense Cream as a finishing product.
