10 Oct Ceramides: Volu-Lift Face Cream or Skinceuticals Triple Lipid Restore
Ceramides = fantastic for your skin!
I received an inquiry from a regular client the other day asking me if I could make a formula that has ceramides, cholesterol, and essential fatty lipids. She has used Skinceuticals Triple Restore 2:4:2 that sells for $128.00 for 1.6 oz. I was very happy to tell her that my Volu-Lift Recontouring Face Cream with Ceramides ($59.00 for 2 oz.) contains exactly what she’s looking for.
Ceramide Complex is also known as SK-INFLUX® V. This high end active restores the protective barrier of our skin, and provides exceptional moisturization and protection. Volu-Lift Recontouring Face Cream with Ceramides also contains Adifyline, which is another high end active that lifts the mid-face area.
Let’s compare the ingredients:
Ingredients: Ceramide 1, Ceramide 6 II, Ceramide 3, Resveratrol, Oat Beta Glucan, Adifyline (amino acid peptide that adds volume) and Hylauronic Acid added to: Water, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Shea Butter, Mango Seed Oil, Olive Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Avocado Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glycerine, Stearic Acid, Glyceryl Stearate, Cetyl Alcohol, Vitamin E (mixture of Tocopherols & Tocotrienols), Lavender Essential Oil, Optiphen.
