Lamellar Technology: How Does It Work?

When a new brand lands on our desks, we can't wait to share it with our customers. When skinSense arrived at Face the Future, it was no different but this time, we wanted to know more about the brand and its incredible active ingredients. We're taking a closer look at Lamellar Technology and how it works

skinSense was founded by Abi Cleeve, who is best known for launching Swiss sun-care brand Ultrasun in the UK and steering it to its current position as one of the leading professional sun protection brands.Abi was passionate about creating a range that continued to deliver hydrating, anti-ageing and precious active ingredients throughout the day and night and that's where Lamellar technology comes in!When we apply skincare, we expect the effects to last all day or night. Whether it's an antioxidant serum in the morning or a hydrating moisturiser in the evening, we want our skincare to work hard. With Lamellar technology, it does exactly that!

What is Lamellar Technology?

Lamellar structure technology is composed of fine, alternating layers that form an even bond with the skin. Lamellar gel structures emulsify cosmetic oils and form an invisible film around the active ingredient. This 'suit of armour' not only protects the ingredients but it supports the penetration and action of the active ingredients into the skin.skinSense's patented lamellar technology delivers antioxidants that the skin needs to fight external aggressors. The antioxidants are delivered deep into the skin, helping to fight against free radicals all day. These structures enable the high-quality and healthy ingredients to remain within the skin's layers for up to 10 hours.

How does Lamellar Technology work?

Lamellar Gel Structures have a high affinity to the natural structure of ceramides found in the skin. This allows them to bind and interact with the skin in a way that no other product can.This technology takes ingredients deep into the skin and delivers benefits more effectively.

What makes skinSense different?

skinSense uses a patented lamellar technology that locks ingredients into the skin so that they continue to work longer and better. Marrying the perfect and potent mix of powerful, proven anti-ageing ingredients in a simple and easy to use formulation.skinSense have developed a strengthened lamellar network with the combination of an alpha-gel and the amino acid L-Argenine which can hold huge concentrations of actives in a completely stable format.This stable format allows the strength of active ingredients to be increased ten fold compared with any other base formula on the market.
