Emulium® Dermolea MB

Sensitive skin shield

Exposed to environmental stress, the skin’s barrier function is altered, facilitating the penetration of irritants, and increasing Trans Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL). As a result, the skin becomes dry and presents sensitivity, associated with redness and a stinging sensation. There is a growing need for mild, soothing texture ingredients that reduce skin sensitivity to aggression and enable the use of skincare and make-up products without reaction and discomfort.

Emulium® Dermolea MB, an O/W emulsifier, reduces skin stress and brings long-term soothing thanks to its unique lipidic composition rich in sterols and triterpenes. Highly moisturizing and protective, it is shown to reinforce the skin barrier function. Used at up to 4%, it is suitable for all skin types, in both humid and dry climates.

Emulium® Dermolea MB was obtained using Gattefossé’s proprietary knowledge on the wax butter technology. Candelilla wax, rice bran wax, and jojoba wax have been selected for their complementary properties and functionalized with polyglycerol-3.
