Rapid Repair

Powerful surface-active molecules assist in rapid skin absorption of beneficial molecules, giving an immediate effect of supplementing skin lipids, assisting in strengthening the dermis, preventing loss of elasticity and firmness, and repairing damage.
null

Rapid Rebuild

AvenaPLex contains phospholipids which trigger gene pathways to physiologically increase production of ceramides, thereby improving the integrity of the skin barrier.
