Every time you touch your face, or use insufficiently cleansed makeup tools you transfer bacteria to your face which can disrupt the skin barrier and expose your skin to stress. Cleaning your makeup tools regularly, proper storage and good skin cleansing routine can maximise all the effort you put into your skincare regimen.
Our beautiful ECM Advanced Repair Nourishing Cleanser has been specially formulated to keep your skin barrier healthy. This soap and sulfate-free rinse off formula retains the balance of the skin’s pH leaving it nourished, hydrated, supple and soft, yet thoroughly cleansed. The condition of our skin barrier and the skin’s pH have a direct impact on our microbiome.
There is now little doubt that microbial exposure early in life is important for the development of competent immune function. While the dominant focus has been on the role of the gut , it is now being discovered that disruption of skin colonisation can also play a role in both local and systemic disruption of our immune system and chronic inflammation.
ALBIVA products contain many herbal extracts with anti-inflammatory properties, essential fatty acids and ceramides which keep the barrier healthy. Our airless containers prevent bacterial contamination and the products have been formulated within the pH range of the healthy skin to support the favourable environment of your microbiome.
