Skingredients Skin Good Fats 45ml (Mix + Match)
Ditch dryness, kick the itch + bring balance to skin anarchy with Skingredients Skin Good Fats (45ml) – a butter soft barrier balm that melts into skin and doubles as a rich moisturiser + night cream in one.
A nourishing + comforting hug to skin that’s irritated or sensitive, Skin Good Fats is brimming with just that: good fats. Containing skin-native ceramide NP (a fatty molecule) to fortify the skin barrier + retain moisture within the skin, as well as shea butter glycerides to moisturise and a clinically-proven, patented anti-irritation ingredient to soothe + calm those itchy sensations – kudos to oat kernel extract! Of course, potent antioxidants in the form of niacinamide (vitamin B3) and vitamin E aren’t to be forgotten – combating those pesky free radicals is an all-important task.
Skin Good Fats is part of our Match + Mix® range of skincare. They’re “add-ons” to your Skingredients core recipe – that's the KeyFour – which work to address your individual skin concerns + help you reach your skin goals. Incorporate our Match + Mix products, into your AM + PM skincare routine when your skin needs it.
Healing + hydrating with anti-inflammatory properties to boot, our ceramide-rich barrier balm gives back to the skin when you're using acids or retinols. Replenishing your skin with essential fats, vitamins and goodness, Skin Good Fats restores equilibrium to sensitive and reactive skin.
