Clinically effective AHA and Retinoid treatments can sometimes cause sensitivity and irritation. High active ingredients give great results but need to be supplemented with formulas designed to soothe, calm and repair the skin. Intensive Recovery Cream works synergistically with all of Brand MD’s best treatments to do precisely that. Specially formulated with cactus and yeast extracts with special low molecular weight peptides to significantly reduce irritation caused by AHA’s and Retinoids. This formula works by down regulates the most important signaling molecules enzymes in inflammation including:COX2, IL-1α and IL8. This down regulation soothes the skin, removes irritation and reduces redness. Intensive Recovery Cream is further enhanced with a concentrated coconut extract rich in Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) to restore skin barrier function which helps the skin maintain its natural structure. Maintaining this structure decreases water loss and increases natural moisturizing factors, which hydrates and protects the skin and significantly aids the skin in recovering after exposure to stress.
