The Other Skincare Company
Dedicated to caring for problem skin, The Other Skincare Company's mission is to offer exquisite, natural, high performance skincare prioritizing long term results over short term fixes. The Other Skincare Company's philosophy is deeply rooted in the principles of Corneotherapy, which is a skincare methodology based on repair and maintenance of the skin barrier function and immune system instead of only treating separate symptoms.
An intact skin barrier and a healthy stratum corneum (outermost layer of the skin) are the 2 most important factors in problem free skin, regardless whether you suffer from acne, inflammation, redness, dryness, dermatitis or skin allergies. The skin barrier is what keeps our skin hydrated and protects our skin from harmful substances and microorganisms that can trigger all of the above skin problems.
The Other Skincare Company's unique skincare approach combines “skin-identical” ingredients with botanical actives for a long lasting, skin healing effect.
"Skin-identical" ingredients are naturally part of the structure of our skin (a few examples are ceramides, cholesterol, free fatty acids, hyaluronic acid, glycerol, squalane and proteins). Supplying “skin-identical” ingredients to the stratum corneum supports the skin immunity and barrier function, reduces trans epidermal water loss (TEWL), and restores epidermal homeostasis.
Adding pure, potent, botanical actives and high performance cosmeceuticals specific for a certain skin issue further delivers nourishing, bacteria balancing and anti-inflammatory properties to the formulas.
All of these skin barrier repair products are formulated without harsh, stripping or irritating ingredients to further ensure skin integrity that will support stronger, healthier and more resistant skin.
Essential oils are kept to a minimum and they are only used in the formulas when they function as scientifically proven active ingredients, not to scent the skin barrier products.
