How to improve skin barrier function, elasticity and firmness


Enbacci’s latest product, the Complete Body Firming Lotion has been on my wish list ever since I heard about it.

Here’s why.

Our elasticity changes as we get older, and the texture of our skin is not what it used to be. So, when I was asked to try the Complete Body Firming Lotion by Enbacci, I was definitely keen. Because let’s face it, when it comes to skincare, it’s easy to forget what’s happening below the neck when we’re in pursuit of a clear and radiant complexion.

Sometimes we are so focused on the face, we forget our lower half. However, many of the ingredients we slap on our face are actually beneficial on other areas of skin, providing an exciting new era for active bodycare.

Enbacci Complete Body Firming Lotion

Pioneering the use of stem cell technology in Australia, luxury skincare brand, Enbacci, unveils the science behind their revolutionary Complete Body Firming Lotion, crediting the stem cells of a 11,700 year old plant, the Saponaria Pumila, for its firming and toning abilities.

Native to the alpine mountains during the Pleistocene period, the pink and fleshy Saponaria Pumila plant survived the last ice age by developing protective repair mechanisms to withstand extreme weather conditions. Preserved in the plant’s DNA and harnessed through stem cell extraction, the plant is scientifically proven to protect dermal skin cells from UV radiation, improve human stem cell activity, and fortify the skin’s natural defense system by improving skin barrier function, elasticity and firmness.

As the first all-over body treatment in Australia to contain Saponaria Pumila stem cells, the Complete Body Firming Lotion by Enbacci combines a host of natural ingredients, such as Sunflower Seed Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Macadamia Oil, Shea Butter and Lecithin, to energise dermal skin cell activity, improve moisture retention and re-densify sagging, tired and mature-looking skin.

The must-have body lotion in your bathroom

According to a study conducted by PhytoCellTec, a mere 0.5% concentration of Saponaria Pumila stem cells can protect the dermis from UV irradiation by 35% and improve skin density and firmness by 14% over a 28-day period.

Rich in essential fatty acids, minerals and vitamins C, E and K, the Complete Body Firming Lotion is non-greasy and vegan-friendly and ideal for all ages, skin types and genders. Pregnancy and breastfeeding safe, the Complete Body Firming retails for $80 and is available globally at
