Serra

The Serra range of products significantly improves dryness, sensitivity and atopic dermatitis. The ingredients mimic the structure and function of the lipid bi layer in the epidermis, while also calming and soothing inflammation and inhibiting inflammatory responses. All the ingredients used in this range have been tested and found safe and effective on both adults and children.

What you need to know:

  • No fragrances, colourants, preservatives or parabens.
  • Serra might tingle when applied initially – but don’t stop using the product. It’s fixing your pH which has become more alkaline because of extended periods of dryness – push through – it will settle down.

 

Serra Range

Serra Restore (50ml Tube – Non Oily Cream)

This light cream contains patented lipid bi-layer recovery ingredients and is formulated for the treatment of dry skin. In dry skin the lipid bi-layer – a structure of natural oils between the dry skin cells in the top layer of your skin – is generally damaged. This layer is critical to maintaining the integrity and immunity of your skin and is responsible for trapping water in your skin and keeping foreign molecules out.
Using a product rich in vegetable oil might feel like it’s relieving the problem, but it won’t fix the damaged layer. Serra Restore contains ingredients that replace this damaged lipid bi-layer. Your skin will trap water more effectively, resolving increase water loss and dryness of your skin. More than that, it will prevent the penetration of foreign particles that might cause irritation, inflammation and even allergic reactions.
The product will correct the pH of the acid mantle ensuring healthy skin with good immune protection. It also has a calming and soothing effect on dry skin and will hydrate with added lipid and essential fatty acids that have been lost through the damaged lipid bi-layer.

  • Ceramide-P
  • Oat Beta Glucan
  • Dexpanthenol
  • Essential Fatty acids
