Sanctuary Barrier Balm
What is it? Sanctuary Balm is a soft, whipped essential oil free balm designed to create a breathable seal and protect the skin barrier.
Notes from the Curator: Made with nutrient-dense Amazonian butters, ceramide-rich plant-based waxes, sterol and phospholipds, this sinks in to provide a dewy finish. It was featured in our Beauty Box because it is that good!
Let’s get Nerdy: When this balm is used as a final layer ondamp skin, the organic phospholipids interact with the water-based serum or moisturizer layered underneath, to form a skin identical layer. This supports the natural skin processes that strengthen the lipid barrier!

- How to Use
Apply as the final layer in your skincare routine. For best results, ensure the skin is damp/hydrated to improve moisture function. It can also be used as a restorative night mask by applying a thicker layer, allowing a slow absorption while you sleep.
During warmer months or when not as dry, mix in your palm with a hydrating serum to create a day cream for a lighter application.
