PSL stands for Physiologic Skin Lipids which are naturally occurring in our skin.
These lipids consist of 50% ceramides, 25% cholesterol, and 15% fatty acids which make up the outer layer of the skin, known as the skin barrier. If this proportion is unbalanced or jeopardized, little openings appear within the skin’s surface where water can evaporate, leaving the skin dry and dehydrated and blocking other active ingredients from working effectively. The impaired skin barrier also allows environmental stressors to penetrate the skin, which ultimately creates signs of aging such as: fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, irritation, loss of elasticity, dullness, uneven texture, large pores, and dehydration.
Our unique PSL emulsion technology is designed to repair damaged skin barrier structure with the correct ratio of ceramides, cholesterol and fatty acids that mimic the natural multilamellar structure of the skin cell’s membrane. Moisturizers with the PSL technology have the optimal efficacy in replacing the lost lipids in the skin, keeping the skin watertight. Continuous use of these products brings a steady supply of building blocks for the skin, which helps strengthen the skin’s barrier, decrease dryness, flaking, irritation and redness. After 14 days you will experience a significant improvement to your skin’s lipid barrier and will have visible results from your daily skincare routine.
