Kristina Holey line - the concept of this Marie Veronique line (in collaboration with celebrated skin care specialist Kristina Holey) is to boost the skin's natural ability to heal itself. The products are cutting-edge and make use of microceutical co-enzymes that kick-start biosynthetic processes, and take care to follow nature’s lipid management systems as closely as possible while at the same time avoiding ingredients like essential oils and microcidal preservatives that can interfere with healthy skin function. The result is products that leave the skin feeling soothed, nourished, and ultimately, healthy.
Oil cleansers do double duty—the oils penetrate to break up congestion deep within the hair follicle while the low-suds surfactants get rid of grime, debris and makeup. This pure oil cleanser goes even further—it supports proper barrier function by protecting the lipid barrier with antioxidants that inhibit lipid peroxidation, and maintains microfloral balance with both a pre/probiotic complex and the elimination of microcidal preservatives and/or essential oils. Excellent for all skin types, from the most sensitive to the most resilient.
Microbiome-friendly + essential oil-free, this cleanser efectively removes debris, sunscreen and makeup without stripping the skin of its protective oils.
- It reconceptualizes the meaning of deep cleansing.
- Rather than scrubbing at the surface, which merely dries the skin, it uses Omega-6 rich oils to penetrate to the origin of congestion, deep within the follicle.
- Utilizing the principle of “oils dissolve oils,” oil-based cleansers are the gentlest and most effective way to clean skin deeply and thoroughly.
- Low-suds surfactants are capable of effectively removing surface grime, debris and makeup, without robbing the skin of its surface protective oils.
- It supports proper barrier function by protecting the lipid barrier with antioxidants that inhibit lipid peroxidation, while the pre/ probiotic complex maintains micro oral balance.
This cleanser is free of ingredients that could impede the skin’s ability to maintain its own lipid, essential fatty acid and microbial balances. Biomimetic in design, it contains no essential oils, microcidal preservatives, or ethoxylated compounds. Client trials show that previously irritated skin returns to normal, and all skin types exhibit a smoother, softer surface.
- Deep cleans without drying—gentle enough for all skin types.
- Reduces congestion, controls oil and refines the complexion.
- Supports barrier function and microbiome integrity.
