Skin function dichotomy

The effectiveness of topical skincare products is based on one major assumption – active ingredients can penetrate through skin barrier FREELY.💘 Therefore, choosing skincare products such as serums, creams, or masks, we usually rely on a claimed effect from their active ingredients. However, we never question whether our skin is actually going to receive any of those active ingredients.

Skin is a physical barrier whose main function is to protect🛡️ our body against the growth of harmful bacteria, viruses, and fungi as well as against ultraviolet rays, physical damage, and water loss.

Skin was not created by beauty industry. It acts as a guard and is not supposed to react to skincare products so they absorb more deeply. However, Japan developed a skin friendly approach to help skincare products penetrate skin deep enough to change its structure and qualities, such as firmness, texture, tone, and level of moisture.💦
