  15. 15. Why We Use Lipid Drops & Vita Soothe <ul><li>Lipid Drops and Vita Soothe both promote barrier repair, which is necessary since: </li></ul><ul><li>Aging depletes Lipid and Vitamin levels in skin </li></ul><ul><li>Many topicals containing retinoids, AHA’s, Hydroquinone and other anti-aging ingredients inevitably trigger breakdown of skin barrier </li></ul>

Lipid Drops <ul><li>Lipid Drops promote barrier repair because its made with bio-identical intercellular stratum corneum lipids – the same type of lipids that are found in healthy skin </li></ul><ul><li>When Lipid Drops are applied to the skin, they have very good penetration due to microfluidization of the formula to guarantee rapid absorption </li></ul>

  19. 19. Why Vita Soothe Works <ul><li>Vita Soothe promotes barrier repair because its made with bio-identical intercellular stratum corneum lipids – the same type of lipids that are found in healthy skin – it’s also packed with antioxidants Vitamin E and F (linoleic acid aka, omega 3 fatty acid) that are essential to younger, healthier looking skin. </li></ul><ul><li>Also note that in preliminary studies, linoleic acid has been shown to be deficient in most skin types, but markedly in acneic patients. By repairing the barrier function, Vita Soothe normalizes the skin thus preventing and healing the follicular plug. </li></ul><ul><li>In addition, Vita Soothe has visible anti-inflammatory results so important to skin health and radiance </li></ul>
