Sensitive skin shield

Access resources


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.
