Mimic the skin’s protective system
The idea that facial or body lotions mimic the skin’s own protective function is truly a soothing idea. In addition to its excellent skin-friendliness, this system really strengthens the barrier function by replacing lost fragments.

The skin’s natural lipid barrier
Together with water, the skin's own barrier lipids form an almost impermeable and thus extremely efficient and sealing hydro-lipid layer. Healthy skin is characterized by an intact lipid barrier, combined with a well-balanced transepidermal water loss (TEWL).
Irritations through wrong care
Emulsifiers and sufactants that are included in many cosmetic products can wash out the intercellular lipids. This weakens the skin’s natural barrier layer and the transepidermal water loss increases - the skin loses its moisture. Furthermore, the loss of water increases the risk of foreign substances penetrating the skin. This is a phenomenon that often goes hand in hand with infections or irritations.
Bimiol BSC® is different: Care and skin become one
Bimiol BSC® does without classic emulsifying agents for a reason: Our cosmetics base is a lamellar system that resembles the skin's own lamellar lipid layer. With its lamellar structure, Bimiol BSC® is the perfect basis for cosmetic and dermatological products. Electron microscope images have shown this layered structure of Bimiol BSC® that gives the skin what it needs.
