This product replaces Mend and Calm as a new combined formula.
Most people think of Rosacea and Sensitive skin as conditions that require non-active products because of their tendency to over-react. The important distinction is that these skin types need non-irritating, active ingredients to remodel their damaged skin in a way that promotes healing. Both Rosacea and Sensitive skin are the result of inflammation and it is therefore critical to use ingredients that remodel, repair and calm so that skin health is restored. Retinaldehyde accomplishes this better than anything else on the market because it is quickly utilized by the skin (see Vitamin A info). The capillaries (and redness) that are often seen reflect two coexisting conditions; the skin is attempting to repair itself by increasing blood supply to certain areas, and,
over time, the skin thins from the excessive inflammation which results in more capillaries being revealed. Calm is designed to increase the density of the skin (which covers capillaries) while calming the inflammation and encouraging repair in a non-irritating fashion. The liposomes vastly improve penetration while restoring the health of the barrier. An in tact barrier is a critical component of the restoration process of Rosacea. In addition, research shows that liposomes reduce excess oil production, improve the health of the skin barrier and assist in wound healing. Eleven active, liposome coated ingredients including Retinaldehyde (which has been proven in independent research to be highly effective for Rosacea), make this product superior to anything else on the market. Another exciting component of Calm is its ability to help remove scar tissue. 1,3 Beta Glucan increases macrophage activity thereby assisting in scar removal. The late stages of Rosacea are associated with the addition of “phyma” or scar tissue. This serum is the only product that addresses every aspect of the condition effectively.
