During the cold, winter months, our skin just needs a thick, moisture-rich balm that’s packed with barrier-repairing Ceramides and fortifying extracts to restore and strengthen it. When applied, this indulgent formula soothes and eases irritation caused by external aggressors at the surface while helping to stimulate collagen production within the lower layers to prevent scarring and speed up the healing process. Antioxidants and botanicals create a shield and provide further nourishment, restoring comfort and suppleness back to compromised skin.
