DIFINSA53™ Barrier Repair
DIFINSA53™ Barrier Repair with Silybin was developed by physicians and scientists to help defend your beautiful skin. Use it daily to help repair and restore your skin’s natural protective barrier, while combating the effects of aging.
Your First Line of Defense
Pollution, radiation and other environmental irritants can cause harmful oxidizing molecules called free radicals to be released in the skin cells, damaging them, so your skin sags, wrinkles and becomes rough. In a world dangerous to beautiful skin, defend yourself with the natural antioxidant protection of Silybin, an extract of the milk thistle plant, which has been used safely for centuries to treat inflammation and other health conditions.
Doctors and scientists at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Center have focused on basic Silybin research for many years. Supported by 40 published studies so far, our researchers continue to investigate new skin therapies using this powerful natural substance.

Five Supporting Ingredients
Bolstering Silybin’s properties for protection and repair are these five key ingredients, uniquely formulated to add further benefits to DIFINSA53™ Barrier Repair:
Niacinamide – to improve elasticity, tone and texture.
Niacinamide is a form of niacin, better known as vitamin B3, which is found naturally in vegetables, milk, eggs, and many other foods. Its main medicinal use is to treat niacin deficiency due to illness or poor diet, and high cholesterol. Used topically on the skin, niacin has been shown to bolster the epidermis, helping the skin to retain its water content. In addition, niacinamide is thought to play a role in improving the skin’s elasticity, reducing skin discoloration, and reviving skin tone and texture.
Hyaluronic Acid – to keep skin firm and supple.
Hyaluronic acid is actually not an acid, but a carbohydrate compound that occurs naturally in the human body, mostly in the eyes, skin and joint cartilage. In the skin, it forms a kind of natural gel in the spaces between the cells. It cushions the skin cells, helping to protect them, and also stores water, helping keep the skin hydrated. Among its many medical uses, it adds firmness, suppleness and moisture to damaged or aging skin.
Vitamin E – to combat free radicals and promote healing.
Acclaimed in skincare for its anti-aging properties, vitamin E (Tocopherol) provides a range of benefits that mostly entail the prevention of cell damage. Vitamin E enables natural antioxidant protection to combat the aging effects of free radicals. Studies also show that small amounts of vitamin E can help to repair and restore damaged skin.
Aloe Vera -- to retain soothing, refreshing moisture.
One of the most ancient skin remedies known, aloe vera is the inner gel extracted from the leaves of the aloe barbadensis plant. Aloe vera remains a foundational natural ingredient in modern skin care formulations. Its strongest benefits may be its ability to hold moisture in the skin, keep pores clear and provide a refreshing sensation on the skin.
Dimethicone 1% -- to add a protective surface.
Dimethicone 1% is a silicone fluid derived from silicon, an abundant earth element. When applied on your skin, it forms a new surface that not only helps your skin barrier protect from chaffing, chapping and other irritation, but also keeps your skin from losing moisture and drying out. The widely spaced molecules of its chemical structure prevent moisture loss, while allowing the skin to breathe and not feel blocked off or plugged up.
