    Ingredient Insights
    Squalane: Naturally-occurring lipid derived from olives protects against moisture loss, makes skin more elastic and pliant, thereby improving the barrier structure of the natural lipid film.

    Biotin: Enhances the overall organizational structure of the skin, increases flexibility and smoothness of skin by promoting the synthesis of lipids.

    Ceramides – Ceramide NP, Ceramide NS, Ceramide EOS, Ceramide EOP, Ceramide AP: Provides protection by correction and repair of membrane defects of the stratum corneum lipid barrier. Increases the water transport mechanism known as aquaporin-3, amplifying hydration.

    Tocopherol: Natural form of vitamin E with excellent bioavailability to the skin. Lipid soluble, potent antioxidant reduces free radicals to help diminish visible signs of aging.

    Caprooyl Phytosphingosine, Caprooyl Sphingosine: Unique short-chain ceramides that function as signaling sphingolipids for keratinocyte differentiation. This leads to strengthening, densifying and smoothing effects of the stratum corneum.

    Enzymes – Ficin, Actinidin, Bromelain: Proteolytic enzyme blend minimizes inflammation and soothes dry, itchy and compromised skin.

    How to activate pump:

    1. With the cap cover in place over the pump, invert the container upside down and tap firmly 4‐5 times. (This will force the liquid up into the actuator and create a vacuum).
    2. Return the container to its upright position.
    3. Remove the cap, and with the nozzle away from your face, press the pump to dispense the product into your hand. It may take several pumps to completely prime the pump to allow the actuator to deliver product.
    4. If pump continues to fail, try steps again.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from May not work for sensitive skins I love all Elta products, especially the moisturizers and foaming cleanser. I thought I would try the Barrier Renewal Complex. I am a red head with sensitive skin. I tried a number of times to use the Barrier Renewal and expereinced burning within 5 minutes of application. I was not using Retin A or Benzoyl peroxide at the time. I think if you have sensitive skin you may want to do test applications to see if you react. Elta products are excellent and every skin is different.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from See and feel the difference! I first tried this Barrier moisturizer as a physician sample. I always wear sunscreen, but my 50+ y/o skin needed an extra moisture boost during the winter. This product is sheer and nongreasy and makes my face feel so silky and smooth. I already see that my skin looks better.... those ceramides (count'em...there are 5!) and enzymes are working. Absorbs quicky and is great under makeup.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from More breakouts I was so excited to try this moisturiser, but unfortunately after weeks of using it my skin still hasn’t got used to it. I started to have more breakouts, even at places I usually don’t have..I was hoping that it would help with the redness but it seems that my oily skin is more inflamed, the cream just sits on the top. Anyways I love elta md sunscreen for sensitive skin, it’s still one of the best for people with skin problems, like acne, roscea. But this one may work better for more mature dry skin, not for acneic skin.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product for dry skin I've been using Barrier Renewal for about a year at night and in dry areas and my neck in the morning. It takes care of all dryness, is soothing, and makes my skin look hydrated. My neck looks much more like it used to now!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG. I have tried soooo many things to help my skin get back to normal after going too fast with retinol usage. My skin was super tight, dry, and peeling. This was going on for about a week and a half and it was very uncomfortable. I’ve tried balms, other creams, oils, but couldn’t find anything I could use during the day that would help with my dryness. That all changed when this came along. It really does what it claims-renew your skins barrier. When you use a ton of harsh products your skin barrier gets compromised which causes the super dry and sensitive skin. This truly helped with that and I can honestly say that I no longer have a sensitive flaky face!!! The only con I would say is the price but it is worth it!
