EMBRYOL MOISTURE is the cornerstone masterpiece created by the Tecniche™ chemists. For the last few years there has been an ongoing quest by several companies to make a product that mirrors "Vernix" (the nurturing, protective and slightly wax-like substance surrounding a baby in the womb). Due to the fact that the womb has to be the most protective environment for a baby to grow and thrive, Vernix would likely be known as the most perfect product to comfort highly delicate skin...just as a mother comforts their newborn with a tender embrace.
The composition of Vernix has been analyzed by scientists as composed of: 10% Lipid + 10% Protein + 80% Water. It may not seem difficult to capture the essence of Vernix's structure...but EMBRYOL MOISTURE has managed to successfully emulate Mother Nature's blueprint into a skin nurturing and barrier defense moisturizer.
The moisture-balancing lipids in EMBRYOL MOISTURE includes Organic Cupuacu (Theobroma Grandiflorum) Seed Butter which is cold-pressed, refined and filtered from the Cupuacu Tree (sustainable) in Brazil. It is power packed with Oleic, Stearic, Palmitic, Arachidic and Linoleic Acids. Organic Murumuru (Astrocaryum) Seed Butter is also cold-pressed and comes from the Murumuru Tree (sustainable) in Brazil. It contains high amounts of Oleic and Linoleic Acids in addition to the beauty marvel, Vitamin A. Both of these exceptional seed oils are anti-inflammatory, moisturizing and overly protective...which our skin requires in order to improve its health.
EMBRYOL MOISTURE has an extra protective barrier thanks to simple, but complicated, Beeswax. It is the delicate substance of Beeswax that protects the cells in a beehive, where young bees are raised. It is a pure, light ingredient that helps lock in water to reinforce the lipid barrier. Ceramides, found in high concentrations in the cell membrane, are critical lipids whose function is cellular signaling of cell differentiation and proliferation. Sodium Hyaluronate (L) is the primo humectant that holds life-giving water in the skin, up to 1,000 times its weight in water...proving that it is a true 'body builder' that helps plump up and improve skin's appearance.
EMBRYOL MOISTURE is comprised of an exclusive Amino Acid combination that provides the purest protein and nutrition, similar to the gentlest of Growth Factors, to help restore cellular health. A baby's skin is extremely delicate, yet it has the determination to grow. Therefore, along with the protective barrier, a baby's skin needs the tools to gently build and thrive. This is where Amino Acids work their magic...they are critical to life as the building blocks of proteins and the key that unlocks skin's healthy renewal.
Daily use of EMBRYOL MOISTURE will improve skin health and vibrancy, with optimal cell protection and nutrition, while reducing skin discomfort and sensitivities.

Those dealing with health challenges frequently have very sensitive skin, from both the condition itself and the medications to treat it. Whether Viral (ex: Shingles or Roseola); Gastric(ex: Celiac or Crohn’s); Motor Neuron(ex: Lou Gehrig’s or Parkinson’s); Metabolic(ex:Thyroid or Diabetes); Cancer; Auto-immune(ex: Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Scleroderma)--- all of these can cause the skin to experience one or more of the following conditions: dry, itchy, inflamed, irritated, neuropathy, hyper-pigmented, photosensitive, rashes, blisters and sores.
I wanted to let you know that I received the samples over the weekend. Even though I figured these products would be too occlusive for my skin, I wanted to try them all just to get a feel for how they work and feel on the skin. I used the Plantae wash Sunday night, and I put the Restore serum on overnight (I usually can’t stand to have anything on my skin overnight, but this wasn’t bad at all). This morning, I cleansed with my usual cleanser, used the Joy spray (smells amazing), and used the Embryol moisturizer.
When I tell you that I am touching my face right now and am in complete disbelief – I am not being dramatic. I don’t know when the last time my skin felt of this texture – but it’s been long before I entered the skin care industry. There is literally NO roughness, no poor texture, my makeup went on absolutely beautifully – I am in awe.
I don’t have particularly bad skin, but I do have my challenges. As a low Fitzpatrick, I’m cursed with skin that likes to have redness behind the scenes – capillaries dilate easily, and I tend to be moderately oily (especially in warm months) but always battle dehydration and skin that likes to flake easily despite the oil. I don’t know what took place exactly in my face – but my makeup didn’t have to do nearly the work today.
Please send me over whatever forms you need to me to complete. I’m in! This is the line I’d like to provide for my oncology patients – and I believe it will also be suitable for a number of my other guests. I am impressed by your ingredient profile and have literally read over every single product information sheet and protocol page.
Thank you so very much, and I am thrilled to know I’ll soon be working with these products!
I was at the dermatologist today and got the BEST compliment from a patient in the waiting room...that my skin is so pretty and smooth ( and of course she was surprised to hear I turn 44 next month!!) ..I couldn't stop telling her all about your products and how happy I am since I started using them over a year ago.

Wanted to tell you how excited I am about your new product. I'm sure it is wonderful for people with skin ravaged from cancer treatments as it has been remarkable for my skin that has been stressed by my constant but necessary use of anti-rejection and anti-viral drugs. What a difference I've noticed! I've recently had some lessening of my kidney function, which causes itching and other issues with the skin in general and the Embryol Moisture you sent me has been amazingly soothing, besides the improved appearance. (This sounds like a commercial, I know, but this is my honest experience.) kidney transplant, skin cancer.
Last night I did a facial on a client who had just gotten over a bad cold. Although she was over the worst of it, she said her nose had been running and running for days and was so sore and painful that it hurt even without touching it. I said "I'll just stay away from that area". I immediately looked at her nose under the mag lamp and indeed it was extremely red, chapped, chaffed and raw as were the lower nostril openings, part of the upper lip corners and lower marionette area. I told her that after a very gentle cleansing, I was going to apply a generous coating of Embryol Moisturizer with a Q-tip and would re-apply as many times as I thought I needed to during the facial, which I did. I knew there was going to be some improvement but the results were amazing, even better than I expected. The redness was about 90% gone by the end of the two hour facial.
I was given a small sample of Tecniche products. The Plantae Foaming Wash and Jojoba Polish are awesome. They leave the skin feeling fresh, moist and smooth. The next step was using the Tecniche Restore Serum and Embryol Moisture. I love the way it goes on the skin and it was very hydrating.
I’ve been using Efudex (generic form of it anyway) and my face is still pretty sensitive and gross. My face is currently in the peeling stage. I should have taken a picture of my face two days after I quit using this stuff. It was horrible, but I couldn’t bring myself to take a picture. I want you to know that once I was done applying the Efudex, I was supposed to apply cortisone cream to my face to help with the itching and swelling. The cortisone cream burned. I was looking through my creams to see what I might have that I could use that wouldn’t burn. I found some of the Embryol Moisture that someone had given me. This has been wonderful. I can put that on my face and there is no burning; it eases the itching and burning and makes it bearable. I really appreciate having that cream.
I have never been loyal to any one facial product and have tried the most expensive to baby bottom cream! Over the years I'm not sure if I've even noticed any significant difference in how my skin looks. Of late however, my eyes have become very sensitive to any skin or makeup products I put on my face. My eyes are red all the time and any kind of perfume in the products is especially problematic. I have no idea what else in the products triggers the inflammation. Then I met one of your advisors and we spoke of your skin care line - Tecniche. She told me to give it a try in case it helps alleviate the irritation to my eyes. Well finally I HAVE noted a difference. I love the face cream "Embryol Moisture". It soothes my dry skin, spreads smoothly and evenly without have to rub in, and most importantly my eyes don't seem to react to the ingredients. My eyes haven't been this clear in years. I also love the jojoba polish to cleanse and the joy mist during the day when my skin feels dry and I feel tired. It has a way of waking me up AND gives my skin a glow!
