HOW IT WORKS
The Problem:
The natural skin lipid structure is responsible for protecting the skin against external aggressors while simultaneously sealing in hydration for proper moisture levels. When this lipid structure becomes compromised due to genetics, illness, or external damage - the skin is unable to properly protect and hydrate itself. The result? Dry, sensitive and unhealthy skin.

Our Solution:
If you look at our formula under a microscope, you would see a special cross pattern that is identical to the pattern of the natural lipid layer of healthy skin. That’s our patented Maltese Formula, platform skin barrier technology, designed to flawlessly mimic healthy skin’s natural lamellar lipid.

Original Maltese Formula; MLE
Once applied, our ingredient’s cross pattern actually takes the place of the damaged lipid layer “tricking” the skin into thinking the healthy lipid layer has been naturally restored. This begins the natural process of your skin self protecting and hydrating - resulting in clearer, healthier, brighter skin. Scientifically, it has single hexagonal gel structure for skin barrier recovery.


2nd generation Maltese Formula; Crystal Lamella MES
Crystal lamella MES showed orthorhombic crystal lamella structure which is the strongest skin barrier formula. This is because of MES’s patented NEUROMIDE, ceramides and phytosterol, which the body recognizes as its own structure. On top of helping the skin protect and hydrate itself once again, crystal lamella MES also aids dry, sensitive skin that is mild and safe enough for babies but powerful and effective for even the most severe skin conditions.
