Features and benefits

Lipex SheaTris contains a high content of triterpene esters, renowned for their skin-protecting, soothing, and revitalizing properties.

Studies show that Lipex SheaTris:

  • Strengthens the skin barrier function to improve moisture retention and protect against environmental aggressors.

  • Protects skin against collagen degrading enzymes.

  • Reduces the activity of pro-inflammatory cytokines linked to premature aging.

  • The triterpenes in Lipex SheaTris also have the potential to reduce skin damage caused by urban pollution. Tests confirm Lipex SheaTris to be effective at protecting skin against different types of inflammatory mechanisms caused by exposure to urban dust, chemical, and UV stress.
