Introducing, Dr. Jart+ – the Korean skincare company that is taking the beauty and health world by storm. Riding on the bandwagon of Korean skincare that seems to be just about everywhere at the moment, is the icky, but truly effective anti-aging skincare brand from Seoul.
Dr. Jart+ was created in 2004 by Lee Jin-wook with dermatologist Dr. Jung Sung-jae. The brand’s name is a creative abbreviation of “Doctor Joins Art”, which reflects with the company’s philosophy of “a fusion of dermatological science and art.”
Fun fact! Dr. Jart+ is actually one of the pioneering brands to introduce BB Creams to the United States.
Dr. Jart+ Skincare: The Key Ingredients
This is one of the common names for Centella asiatica, a perennial plant native to the wetlands in Asia. It is an excellent source of natural bioactive substances, such as triterpenoid saponins, flavonoids, phenolic acids, amino acids, and sugars.
According to trusted research, these substances can cause an increase in collagen production and cell layer fibrocentin. Aside from that, it can also improve the strength of newly-formed skin and restoring or maintaining the skin’s youthful appearance.
Jartbiome is the brand’s proprietary microbiome complex and is one of the key ingredients that can be found in a few Dr. Jart+ products. According to the thedermreview, “The microbiome is a population of many types of bacteria (over 10,000 different species) that live on the skin. There are good bacteria that help to protect the skin, but sometimes bad bacteria can begin to populate, which may lead to acne, redness, and dryness. Jartbiome is intended to balance the microbiome by supporting the good bacteria and helping to eliminate the bad bacteria, thereby strengthening the skin and improving skin’s defenses against dryness.”
Despite being found as the last ingredient in the list, Ceramides are considered as the a key ingredient that can be found in Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Cream. According to thedermreview, “Ceramides are a family of waxy lipid molecules that are naturally produced by the skin and are vital in supporting the stratum corneum. The stratum corneum is the outer layer of skin, which can be thought of as a “brick and mortar” system. The bricks are the corneocytes (dead skin cells) and the intercellular lipids (ceramides) represent the mortar. Without ceramides, the skin barrier is weakened, just like without mortar a brick wall would be weak and unstable. The result is skin that can easily become dry, itchy, or irritated. A properly functioning stratum corneum is essential for healthy skin as it maintains epidermal hydration and serves as a barrier
The result is skin that can easily become dry, itchy, or irritated. A properly functioning stratum corneum is essential for healthy skin as it maintains epidermal hydration and serves as a barrier that responds to environmental stressors, infections, irritants, and allergens. Topical application of ceramides can help to replenish ceramide levels, thus restoring the skin’s natural barrier.
