A Rich and Caring Cholesterol Body Butter that contains ingredients to moisturize and re-enforce the natural skin barrier.

This formulation features TEGO Sterol KCS which is a skin-identical cholesterol derivative. Cholesterol and cholesterol derivatives are a major component of the extracellular lipid matrix through their function in the lamellar structure formation. These natural, bio-identical products stabilize emulsions and enhance penetration of active ingredients in the lipid matrix.

TEGO Care 450 MB is incorporated into the formulation to provide emulsion stabilization, moisturizing properties, and caring skin feel.
