Clarifying B Toner 2
When it comes to achieving radiant and blemish-free skin, the right skincare routine is essential. And to elevate your skincare journey further, we're excited to introduce one of our best-selling products: the Clarifying B Toner 2. As a game-changer in your nighttime skincare regimen, this toner is formulated to make your skin glow radiantly. By efficiently assisting congested pores in shedding buildup and debris that often lead to breakouts, it promotes a clearer complexion. Moreover, our Clarifying B Toner 2 goes beyond the surface, soothing and strengthening irritated and stressed skin, leaving it smoother and healthier. In line with the latest skincare insights, this toner features turmeric, a key ingredient that stimulates aquaporin activity, enhancing your skin's hydration from within. Elevate your routine with the Clarifying B Toner 2 and unlock the secret to a revitalized, well-hydrated complexion.
As highlighted in a recent article on skincare products that activate aquaporin channels, our Clarifying B Toner 2 features the potent ingredient turmeric. Turmeric, renowned for its skin-loving properties, contains the active compound curcumin. Scientific studies reveal that curcumin can enhance AQP3 expression and glycerol transport in human keratinocytes, crucial components in maintaining skin hydration. By activating PPARγ receptors, turmeric promotes aquaporin activity, contributing to the remarkable hydrating benefits of our Clarifying B Toner 2.

PSL Repair Moisturizer 4
To solidify and rejuvenate your nighttime skincare routine, it's crucial to prioritize skin repair and hydration. According to Dr. Baumann, a renowned skincare expert, a skin-repairing and ultra-hydrating moisturizer is key to nourishing and protecting the skin barrier throughout the night. Seek products with essential ingredients like ceramides, known for fortifying the skin barrier, and niacinamide, recognized for its anti-inflammatory properties and skin texture enhancement. Dr. Baumann emphasizes the importance of choosing a moisturizer tailored to specific skin types and concerns, such as dryness, sensitivity, or signs of aging. Our best-selling PSL Repair Moisturizer 4 is the perfect solution, clinically proven to strengthen the skin barrier, alleviate irritation in just seven days, and provide immediate relief from skin dryness.
This image demonstrates the functions of the skin barrier. To provide additional context, the skin barrier is situated in the stratum corneum, the epidermis's top layer. Comprising keratinocytes enclosed in a lipid bilayer, this structure, containing fatty acids, ceramides, and cholesterol in equal proportions, is positioned between each keratinocyte.
In alignment with Dr. Baumann's insights, she highlights specific attributes that define good barrier repair moisturizers in her blog. According to her, an effective moisturizer should contain three lipid types—ceramides, fatty acids, and cholesterol—in a balanced 1:1:1 ratio and exhibit a Maltese cross pattern under a cross-polarized microscope. Dr. Baumann's detailed analysis highlights the importance of transparency in product formulation, noting that companies proud of a 1:1:1 lipid ratio will often disclose this information. Notably, MEDATURE’s PSL Repair Moisturizer 4 earns recognition as a good barrier repair moisturizer, exhibiting the coveted Maltese cross pattern under cross-polarized light, a testament to its efficacy in supporting skin barrier repair.
