Natural Born Cosmetics® Calming Bio-Lipid Repair Fluid is a water-based blend that targets skin where it needs the most immediate help and healing - repairing the delicate lipid barrier and protecting it with antioxidants that stem the advance of aging effects from a damaged lipid layer. Lipid-rich ingredients repair and moisturize skin while plant extracts calm sensitive skin and reduce visible redness. Ultra hydrating Algae Complex helps restore hydration and rebuild the moisture level - which in turn helps stimulate skin to form healthy connective tissue over time. Skin immediately feels softer and calmer, and stays moist for hours. With long-term use, skin will look healthier firmer, become less sensitive and feel more comfortable – even in the presence of irritants that caused reactions in the past. Calming Bio-Lipid Repair Fluid is an oil free formula with less than 1% emulsifiers so that the skin’s protective barrier remains intact, instead of be dissolved by stearates, sulfates or other similar ingredients commonly found in most moisturizers. It’s especially ideal for extremely dry, sensitive, rosacea-prone, aging/mature skin types and for daily use over anti-aging serum products to enhance and protect skin’s natural lipid functions. The fluid is also highly recommended for use on skin that has recently undergone microdermabrasion, chemical peels, laser surgery, or any topical facial procedure to help restore lipid barrier function. Calming Bio-Lipid Repair Fluid is a hit with Special Makeup Effects Artists because it’s the perfect skin balancing and protective fluid to apply to skin, especially sensitive skins, before wearing heavy makeup or prosthetic appliances. It’s perfect to apply immediately after removal of these makeups because it works quickly to help restore skin’s pH balance and provide instant relief from skin redness or irritation that often occurs. To Use: after cleansing, apply a moderate amount of fluid to gently dried skin. To reduce friction and help prevent redness that can occur during application, warm a dime-size amount of fluid between your fingertips and lightly pat and press into the skin. Allow to absorb completely before applying treatment serums, moisturizers or makeup. This fluid can be used in conjunction with Natural Born Cosmetics® Calming Bio Lipid Repair Creme, as a moisturizer over it for even more balanced and excellent results. Pro Skin Care Tip: To help the fluid absorb more evenly and thoroughly, and to greatly maximize performance over time: Apply gentle exfoliation to remove troublesome dead skin cells one-to-three times a week using a non-abrasive/non-skin irritating cleansing sponge, with your cleanser, such as Artist’s Choice Cleansing Sponges. Dermatologist-tested for sensitivity and irritancy. Does NOT contain any fragrance, essential oils, colorants, volatile alcohols, urea, sulfates, acids, strong emulsifiers, lanolins, mineral oils, parabens and/or formaldehyde-releasing preservatives that can irritate sensitive skin.
