A targeted heavy hitter that delivers clinically proven 24-hour moisture to chronically dry skin, a compromised barrier, or mature skin.
The reparative formula nourishes skin with glucosyl ceramides, beta-sitosterols, and zinc and copper salt minerals to encourage the natural synthesis of healthy collagen, vital lipids, and hyaluronic acid in skin, promoting elasticity, soothing skin, and supporting healthy barrier function. Bora Barrier™ delivers powerful, deep moisture, firming skin and reducing visible redness while returning your skin barrier to a healthy state.
Your skin barrier, aka your acid mantle, is the protective, outermost layer on the surface of the skin. Made up of lipids, fatty acids, cholesterol, and ceramides, it maintains moisture and hydration levels in skin and keeps bacteria, pollution, and other harmful substances out. A compromised skin barrier may result from the overuse of actives, sun damage, aging, etc. Bora Barrier™ feeds your skin the essential components it needs to restore it to a healthy state.
100% free of essential oils, silicones, and fragrance.
Apply one pump morning and night to clean, dry skin. Use daily or in rotation with other Drunk Elephant moisturizers. May be mixed with any Drunk Elephant serum, treatment, or cream.
Glucosyl Ceramides: Aka super ceramides, these occur naturally in skin and help trigger skin's own production of healthy ceramides, strengthening skin’s barrier while simultaneously boosting and protecting its water content. While glucosyl ceramides are beneficial for all skin, they are especially helpful for skin that is compromised due to age, sun damage, or irritation.
Glycosphingolipids: Aka super moisturizers. These sugar lipids composed of glucosyl ceramides help improve elasticity and barrier strength and lock moisture into the outermost layer of skin.
Beta-sitosterol: Powerful skin-soothing ingredient that can help boost and support skin’s synthesis of hyaluronic acid.
Zinc Gluconate: The salt mineral of zinc oxide and gluconic acid has anti-redness benefits and powerful antioxidant properties.
Copper Gluconate: The salt mineral of copper and gluconic acid provides potent antioxidant properties and has the potential to encourage healthy collagen production as well as defend against its loss.
Alpha Glucan: Derived from rice and used for its soothing, hydration-boosting benefits.
Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate: Water-soluble form of vitamin C. Converts to ascorbic acid in skin. Increases collagen synthesis and helps improve the look of hyperpigmentation.
Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate: Powerful form of vitamin C that has the potential to improve multiple signs of aging and uneven skin tone (particularly when combined with other brightening ingredients and a broad-spectrum sunscreen).
3-Ceramide Blend: Plant-derived ceramides AP, NP, and EOP are identical to the wax-like moisturizing ceramides that occur naturally in skin. Ceramides help fill in the spaces between skin cells, giving them elasticity, and play a critical role in strengthening the skin barrier by helping to maintain the moisture balance of skin while protecting against water loss.
Linolenic and Linoleic Acids (Vitamin F): Soothing fatty acids that play a key role in maintaining hydration levels, improving skin texture and suppleness while improving acid-mantle strength.
