The Other Skincare Company specializes in compromised skin prone to acne, inflammation, redness and dehydration.
Their philosophy is deeply rooted in the principles of Corneotherapy, which is a skincare methodology based on repair and maintenance of the skin barrier defense systems and overall boosting the skin’s innate immune system.
An intact skin barrier and a healthy stratum corneum (outermost layer of the skin) are the 2 most important factors for a problem free skin, regardless whether you suffer from acne, inflammation, redness, dryness, dermatitis or skin allergies. The skin barrier is what protects our skin from harmful substances and microorganisms that can trigger all of the above skin problems.
To accomplish this The Other Skincare Company uses “skin-identical” ingredients. These are ingredients that are naturally part of the structure of our skin like ceramides, cholesterol, free fatty acids, hyaluronic acid, glycerol, proteins just to name a few. Supplying skin-identical ingredients to the stratum corneum supports the skin barrier function reducing trans epidermal water loss (TEWL) and restoring epidermal homeostasis.
All their products are formulated without harsh, stripping or irritating ingredients to further ensure the skin barrier function and lipid barrier of the stratum corneum stay intact resulting in a stronger, healthier and more resistantskin.
