Skin Identical Ingredients are important because they are skin repairing ingredients. We are referring to the substances between skin cells, the intercellular matrix, which helps to keep skin cells connected and helps to maintain the skin’s fundamental external structure.
Skin Identical Ingredients in the outermost layer of the skin include: ceramides, fatty acids and cholesterol, all of which help to keep your skin looking young and radiant. If the outer layer of your skin is compromised, you can absorb an abundance of natural oils, butters, and waxes, to add to this layer of natural protection. This layer locks in moisture, and provides an excellent barrier against challenges such as bacteria and viruses. Dry or sun-damaged skin can absorb large amounts of these Skin Identical products initially, if they are lacking, and then the need for them will decrease.
The next layer of your skin is the layer that is able to retain moisture. The important Skin Identical Ingredients for this layer include hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and lecithin. Glycerine actually occurs in all natural oils and fats, which are all lipids– so glycerin occurs naturally in your skin. A product may only be called “Skin Identical” if it is naturally occuring in the skin.
Thankfully, these essential ingredients can be found in the wholeness of nature, and produced in such a way that the body knows how to accept them and use them. This form of product is called Chirally Correct and is what the body chooses to use naturally in its biochemical pathways.
