microbiome: the composition of microorganisms.
microbes: microorganisms in the form of bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
What is the
This is already a mouthful to say. So, let’s dial it back and introduce the enzyme in simpler terms. the hydrolytic enzyme is a powerful protein.
Hydrolytic enzyme = powerful protein = incredibly powerful possibilities for your skin.
The hydrolytic enzyme is activated by the condition of the skin such as pH and microbiome activity level on your skin (think gut health microbiome, but on the skin – the skin is the biggest organ we have, after all). it will do what’s best for your skin, to reach its most natural and balanced microbiome level.
To break it down,
the hydrolytic enzyme has
3 core competencies
& microbe deactivation
& microbe deactivation
Eczema, psoriasis, and acne can result from a microbiome imbalance. The enzyme works to restore your skin’s microbiome back to its most natural and healthy state. The enzyme also helps deactivate any excess microbes (viruses, bacteria, or fungi) that could be already on your skin or encountered during the day.
Basically, the enzyme helps other actives perform better. That means you’re getting the most out of all the other ingredients (e.g. peptides, collagen, hyaluronic acid) that the enzyme is paired with within each fjör product.
The hydrolytic enzyme is boosting the formulation to deeply hydrating from the outside application, as well as activating the skin to draw moisture from within. This creates an essential environment for your skin to feel nourished, all day long for that dewy deluxe feel.
How the serum works
The skin comprises of 2 key outer layers:
epidermis: The top outer-most layer of skin.
dermis: Below the epidermis, comprising of elastin and collagen, which over time get worn down resulting in aging skin.
fjör creates a protective film above the epidermis to smoothen and hydrate the epidermis and dermis layer from the outside, as well as hydrate the dermis from within.
before & after
4 weeks of using the serum
Volunteers sampled the hydrolytic serum for 6 weeks, AM + PM. This was their experience.
