Sensitivity, fragility, dryness and inability to repair are problems intrinsic to skin weakened from normal aging, environmental stressors, the challenges of illness as well as hormones. INTRINSIC FACE LOTION counters these challenges with ingredients essential to intrinsically healthy, strong and vibrant skin.
This hydrating, yet ultra light lotion moisturizes and plumps the skin with the legendary water hoarding ingredient, Hyaluronic Acid.
Potent fractions (the key component), from Magnolia and Licorice Extracts; inhibit neurosensory discomfort, soothe redness and stinging and are free-radical scavengers. Oat Beta-Glucan (D), D-alpha Bisabolol and Allantoin give additional anti- irritation power.
One of the revolutionary components of INTRINSIC FACE LOTION is a “Chronopeptide” which mimics the effect of sun exposure on circadian genes expression. Why is this ingredient revolutionary? It is important to have optimal cell renewal and regeneration that happens best with restful nighttime sleep; This peptide optimizes Vitamin D activity and helps with too little sleep, too much stress...even jet lag. It stimulates natural cutaneous defenses that restful sleep bring. Additionally, Carnosine (L) Benfotiamine, a patent-pending complex, helps protect cells against “glycation”. Glycation is the process in the skin, where reactions between sugars and proteins cause the collagen to break down...something that frequently happens in aging and diabetic skin. Both of these ingredients help protect Mitochondria, the ultimate and critical source of cellular energy.
INTRINSIC FACE LOTION will improve skin health and vibrancy, with revolutionary ingredients, while reducing the signs of aging and sensitivities.

The harmful effects of outdoor and indoor environments (air pollution, UVA/UVB, chemicals, etc.) are extensive. People that live in areas where there is more or less exposure to sun can affect their Circadian Rhythm of cell renewal. Effects on the skin include dryness, premature aging, skin rashes, eczema, poor/slow healing, and acne.
A skin condition that results from a sensitivity due to a likely a combination of factors, one being the over-application of topicals containing irritants, usually on a daily basis. Regular exfoliation using acids or manual means can disrupt or thin the skin barrier and allow for deeper penetration of these irritants, accelerating this process even more.
