ÚNA

169 kn

Úna is a universal, neutral cream suitable for dry to very dry, flaky, sensitive and atopic skin of both adults and children. It is rich in gentle emollients (triglycerides and fatty acids which simulate our skin’s natural lipid film), ceramide precursors which repair the skin’s compromised barrier function, beta glucan and panthenol which soothe inflammation (redness and itchiness) and canola oil which contains balancing omega 3 and 6 fatty acids.

Úna has undergone in vivo testing under dermatologist supervision on individuals with a history of allergies and diagnosed atopic dermatitis.

In such skin (just as in skin affected by psoriasis) the hydrolipidic barrier, whose function is to guard the skin’s integrity, is severely compromised and leads to the skin’s surface becoming dried out, cracked and flaky and prone to infections. Ceramides, lipids that healthy skin produces naturally, are an extremely important component of the hydrolipidic barrier and atopic skin is characterised by a great deficiency of this natural skin lubricant.

Úna contains sphingolipids and phospholipids that generate crucial, biologically active ceramides, sphingosine (which regulates the skin’s microbiome, often compromised in case of atopic dermatitis) and signalling pathways that participate in cell communication. These ingredients help skin with a compromised hydrolipidic barrier to once again fulfil its natural defensive function.

Apart from ceramide precursors, the second important ingredient is the immunomodulator carboxymethyl beta-glucan (CM beta glucan). This is a polysaccharide that has multiple functions in topical applications:

  • it regenerates cells in charge of collagen production,
  • it promotes adequate immunological functioning of skin cells,
  • it acts as an anti-oxidant and has been proven to repair cellular damage created by UVA radiation,
  • in challenge tests involving detergent, it exhibits significant protection of the hydrolipidic barrier,
  • it stimulates healing of small wounds by prompting re-epithelisation, mobilisation of macrophages (leukocytes) and collagen deposit on the spot where the skin’s been damaged.

In our universal, neutral cream (pH 5.5) beta glucan has been paired with a soothing ingredient trio made up of betaine, panthenol and bisabolol that reduce inflammatory processes and canola oil which is a natural source of omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids and vitamin E.

Úna has been tested on heavy metals, including nickel. It is suitable for local application on children’s skin above the age of 4 months.

Úna is formulated without the addition of parabens, perfumes, alcohol, synthetic dyes and other irritants and is packaged in a hygienic airless container. In the case of extremely dry skin, it should be combined with an occlusive product such as Naro.

My skin is very dry. How to combine ÚNA with other products?

If the skin is both dry and sensitive (in case of atopic skin), we recommend that you try mixing ÚNA with our squalane booster Naro. Squalane is a naturally occurring substance. As we age, our own sebum becomes deficient in squalane so compensating for it could be very beneficial in alleviating uncomfortable, tight skin.  You can also boost your anti-oxidant content by layering Spectra underneath ÚNA. Spectra is a gentle serum emulsion perfect for sensitive skin. 

My skin is sensitive to heavy metals in products. Can I use ÚNA?

If your skin is intolerant to heavy metal contamination, ÚNA could be just the right product for you. 

Can children use ÚNA? Could this be a ‘universal’ moisturiser for the whole family?

Yes. ÚNA can be used on adult facial skin with atopic tendencies, but because the formula is extremely gentle and minimalistic, you can use it on dry facial skin of children above the age of 4 month.
