Defend IQ is specifically formulated with cactus and yeast extracts with special low molecular weight peptides to significantly reduce irritation caused by AHAs and retinoids. This formula works by down regulating the most important signaling molecule enzymes in inflammation, including COX2, IL-1a and IL8. This down regulation soothes the skin, removes irritation and reduces redness.
Defend IQ is further enhanced with a concentrated coconut extract rich in Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) to restore skin barrier function with 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.
