Do you know what your body’s largest organ is? It’s our skin.

One of the main skin issue skin conditions is caused due to lack of hydration. Your skin is waterproof… What do you think would happen if you placed a water base cream on the surface?

It wouldn’t do anything, the water would evaporate leaving the preservatives on the surface of the skin. This results in irritation, causing conditions such as acne, sensitivity and dryness. When searching for a suitable skin care range to treat your skin, it is important to study up on the delivery system of the cream –  meaning water in oil emulsion or oil in water emulsion. It is vital to note what the actual ingredients that are formulated in the product are, and what active ingredient are present to correct your conditions.

Just by following a basic skin care regime it is possible to protect your largest living organ (the skin) and assist in combating environmental stresses that can trigger skin distress, such as pollution, sun and wind, exposure, lack of sleep, poor diet choices and work or lifestyle pressures.

So how does our skin function, and what can be done to maintain, correct or perfect this amazing, hard-working organ?

Scientific research into the skin and its function indicates that there is an abundance of cell-to-cell communication. If we can deliver active ingredients to the deeper layers of the epidermis (stratum spinosum) we are in turn supplying these cells with all the nutrients they require to function in optimal health and to make their return journey to the outer most layer of our skin (stratum corneum) easier, thus providing you with a balanced, healthy and glowing complexion.

Unique Develivery System

The MBK serums and moisturizers are developed and encapsulated in liposomal membranes, which merge with the barrier layers of the skin and allow for transportation of actives through the stratum corneum (skin barrier). This results in the release of active agents through the skin barrier, providing a deep and effective delivery system.

Unlike conventional creams, MBK Cosmecueticals possess neither oil-in-water (O/W) nor water-in-oil (W/O) properties. Due to their special bilayer structure, they integrate with ease within the skins lipids.

Usually creams based on either O/W or W/O emulsions are homogenised and stabilised with the help of emulsifiers. Emulsifiers may build up within the skin and dissolve skin lipids when skin comes into contact with water (wash out effect). This in turn counteracts or even ruins the desired effects of the original emulsion. Hence the importance of correct skin care choice is vital when nourishing your skin.
