Epi Lipids are plant-derived oils that are identical in their lipid composition to our skin’s own epidermal lipids, so our skin recognizes them and absorbs them rapidly into the barrier. They are sourced from Sea Buckthorn and Sacha Inchi seed oils, known for their amazing nourishing and protective skin benefits that makes them stand out from other plant-based ingredients.
The secret to SkinIntegra’s faster healing is our patented Epi Lipids technology. Following months of research, we developed a precise blend of natural lipids, vitamins and nutrients sourced from powerful plant oils. Sea Buckthorn and Sacha Inchi plants both grow in uniquely diverse environments: the Tibetan plateau and the Peruvian Amazon. These plants’ natural habitats are what cause their berries and seeds to develop an amazing amount of nutrition. They are rich in omega essential fatty acids, which are essential components of a healthy skin barrier. We use a high concentration of these ‘super plant oils’ to provide a boost of Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids and accelerate the skin’s natural repair process. This proprietary lipid, vitamin and nutrient composition penetrates into the layers of the skin barrier and is highly effective at treating compromised, cracked skin that is slow to heal. Lab testing shows that Rapid Crack Repair Cream accelerates injured skin’s healing response in the first 24 hours.
Sea Buckthorn and Sacha Inchi are also rich in many powerful antioxidants such as Vitamin C and E, known for defending the skin from oxidative stress that can trigger inflammation in compromised skin. Rich in these natural antioxidants, Epi Lipids help boost skin’s defense from free radical damage and protect from inflammation that can cause more dryness, itch and pain. Strong natural antioxidant defense helps preserve the skin’s natural ability to produce lipids and restore barrier health. Lab testing showed that Rapid Crack Repair Cream delivers antioxidant protection, helping power up the cellular repair process and soothe dry, irritated skin.
Sea Buckthorn and Sacha Inchi are natural plant oils also known for their anti-bacterial and anti-fungal benefits, which provide our skin with yet another layer of protection. People with cracked skin are more vulnerable to minor infections because the skin barrier is damaged. A time kill study conducted by a third party independent laboratory showed that Rapid Crack Repair Cream eliminated 99.99% of several common bacteria and fungi in less than one 1 minute.
