Basic Cream

The new Basic Creme 

1. The new cream base – Continuation 1

The Basic-cream is solely composed of the components of the skin lipids like:
- Phospholipids
- Triglycerides
- Squalanes
- Phytosteroles
- Ceramides
The Basic-Creme was developed to gain a neutral skin care cream that causes no irritations on skin and enables by its lipids an optimal release of the active agents.

2. The natural permeability boundary

Understanding the structure of the DMS-concentrate means understanding the evolution and the factor of the natural permeability-boundary of the skin:

Millions of years ago during the evolution process, when animal left water and went on land, their skin had to adapt to a completely new biochemical aspect, namely: 
how to keep the biological balance between the water within the body and the dry, rough environment outside.

A mechanism had to be developed in order to regulate the balance of exchange of water-evaporation.

Moreover, provisions had to be developed that no foreign substances would enter the body.
Even though the human skin is extremely thin,
- only a few millimetres divide the outer atmosphere from the blood capillaries 
- the skin is remarkably resistant against unrequired foreign substances.

 

3. The natural permeability – boundary

If you have a look at this lipid-layer filling the space between the corneacytes like mortar in a brick-wall, you will find parallel lamellar lipid-structures.

Electron microscopic photographs furnish proof that these lamellar lipid-structures really exist.
Chemical analyses showed that these membranes mainly consist of the socalled
• phospholipids
• ceramides
• cholesterols.

Whereas, the surface skin-lipids consist of 
• triglycerides
• squalanes.

 

Laboratory experiments showed that the membrane structure of the lipid matrix is of enormous importance to the function boundary protection.

 

The special structure provides a 100 to 10.000 times better protection than the same lipids not naturally structured in a lamellar way.
