People suffering with eczema and atopic dermatitis lack the production of natural moisturizing factors that serves as a barrier against viruses and bacteria and may have a deficiency in ceramides which hold skin cells together to form a healthy skin barrier.
These ingredients help restore natural moisturizing factors in the skin and help rebuild a healthy skin barrier.
People suffering from eczema and atopic dermatitis lack the production of natural moisturizing factors that provide a barrier against viruses and bacteria, possibly due to a deficiency in ceramides that hold skin cells together to form a healthy skin barrier.
According to the company, Restoraderm Skin Restoring Moisturizer is the only product on the market to contain a combination of filaggrin breakdown products and ceramides to help restore natural moisturizing factors.
Filaggrin is a protein that plays a key role in formation of natural moisturizing factors.
One of the major natural moisturizing factors found in the skin, Resilen has the capacity to hold up to 500 times its own weight in water.
Exposure to fluctuations in these atmospheric conditions can cause skin to dry and, over time, inhibit the skin's ability to rehydrate itself, renew (exfoliate) its outer layers, replenish natural moisturizing factors, and repair its moisture barrier.
Neonates with the highest transepidermal water loss at birth, likely mediated through an impaired epidermal barrier, show significantly elevated chymotrypsinlike protease activity and reduced levels of filaggrin-derived natural moisturizing factors, which may predispose them to the development of atopic dermatitis, according to a report published online in the British Journal of Dermatology.
