With more hand washing, excessive showering with harsh products, usage of sanitisers for hands or disinfectant home cleaning products, the skin might become dry and itchy.
The skin has a natural skin barrier that protects from harmful bacteria and regulates the moisture content. This protective structure, similar to a brick wall, is formed together with the linoleic acid and other lipids (fats).
Gaps in the protective skin barrier affect that skin loses moisture and lipids. The consequence is dry, itchy, and chapped skin.
Linola contains essential linoleic acids (fatty acid) which help to restore the skin's natural protective barrier.
