If you have sensitive skin like rosacea, psoriasis, and neurodermatitis, venturing into the world of anti-aging skincare can feel like you're stepping into a minefield. In addition to the products that under deliver, some show results but make use of harsh ingredients – such as retinol and AHAs – that can wreak havoc on easily-irritated skin. Thankfully, for all battling with skin that almost seems to react to everything, MBR’s Modukine™ Serum proves the existence of skincare formulas that take a gentler, more soothing approach to fighting signs of aging. Read on to discover why the Modukine™ Serum should be a staple in a sensitive skincare routine. 

Regenerates and Deeply Nourishes Skin

In place of harsh anti-aging ingredients like retinol and acids that carry a high risk of irritant contact dermatitis (characterized by redness, peeling, and sensitivity), Modukine™ Serum is formulated with Modukine™ to promote skin cell turnover for a bright, youthful complexion, while desensitizing the skin. But – what is Modukine™, and how does it work? Well, it’s a milk-derived active ingredient (polypeptide) that’s specifically designed to regenerate and nourish sensitive, dry, and troubled skin, such as acne-prone and atopic skin. It acts as an extremely potent biological cell response modifier. In addition to sloughing away dead skin cells, it also reduces inflammatory processes in the skin at a cellular level – thereby restoring healthy skin functionality and reducing redness and irritation, making it one of the best rosacea treatments available over the counter.

It’s not just the Modukine™ that nourishes your skin, too. Modukine™ Serum also contains hyaluronic acid; when applied, this HA, naturally occurring in your skin and body works as a magnet for moisture, helping your cells and tissue retain as much of it as possible so that your skin appears hydrated, firm, and plump. Surface lines are reduced – instantly. 

Neutralizes Damage Caused by Free Radicals

Every effective anti-inflammatory skincare product contains antioxidants, and Modukine™ Serum is no exception. The addition of three potent antioxidants, Sea Mayweed, Vitamin E, and Meadowfoam Oil, enables the serum to penetrate your skin, turning harmful free radicals that form in the body when you're exposed to UV rays and other environmental assaults – into harmless compounds, thereby helping to slow down and reduce the degradation of DNA, elastin, and collagen. And with their moisturizing effects, these powerful ingredients found in this anti-aging serum for sensitive skin work to result in calm, soft, and supple skin that resists skin aging. 

Strengthens Your Skin’s Defenses

You may not know this, but most skin sensitivity is related to the fatty outer layer, also known as the lipid-barrier, of your skin. The lipid-barrier performs two main functions: keeping moisture in and keeping potentially damaging things, like UV rays, wind, heat, and harsh chemicals, out. In individuals with sensitive skin, however, this barrier is typically weaker, thinner, and more easily damaged, making it easier for irritants to penetrate the skin and cause inflammation.

And this is where the Modukine™ Serum shines. Its addition of Acqua Cell (a combination of natural actives) and Crambe Abyssinian Oil (omega 3-6-9 fatty acids) help with lipid-barrier repair by increasing the critical components of your skin's protective barrier. The result? Improved skin resilience and reduced skin sensitivity: the two crucial factors you need in an anti-inflammatory and redness skincare product. For further protection against daily aggressors, the Modukine™ Serum is formulated with Fomblin, an ingredient that helps provide a smooth, external film over your skin that’s excellent for under makeup. And don’t worry, it’s noncomedogenic, so it won’t clog your pores and aggravate your skin.

Ultimately, the Modukine™ Serum’s combination of healing and anti-inflammatory ingredients balances and desensitizes even the most atopic, irritated, and uncomfortable skin – resulting in a visibly smoothed and silky-soft complexion.
