More than just skin hydration

Our skin is the largest organ in the human body. It plays a key role as a protective barrier for the body and is home to an ecosystem of microorganisms.

Although most of these microorganisms are beneficial to skin health, disturbances in the stratum corneum and the composition of the skin's microbiome can negatively affect the health of this important organ.

GENENCARE® XL is a moisturizer that supports the microbiome profile of skin.

Moisturizer that supports our skin microbiome profile

When it comes to combatting dry skin, both hydration and a balanced skin microbiome are essential.

Moisturizes

Provides skin hydration for up to 8 hours and improves the composition and organization of the lipid layer.

Supports skin microbiome profile

Helps to maintain the skin's microbiome diversity.

Provides a cooling effect

Can be used as a cooling agent in powder scrub formulations

Mode of Action

1. Lipidic layer composition and organization improvement

Accelerates the exocytosis of lamellar bodies (lipid release) and increases the lipid fluidity in the uppermost part of the Stratum Granulosum.

2. Humectancy

Attracts and retains water in the Stratum Corneum
