We recently experiencedÂ BeautyStat Universal C Skin Refiner, a patented Stable C cream. Â The other half of the BeautyStat dynamic duo is the BeautyStat Universal Pro-Bio Moisture Boost Cream. It hydrates, buffers and boosts Vitamin C tolerance. Buffering actives is mandatory for sensitive skin types. Â But we findÂ BeautyStat Universal Pro-Bio Moisture Boost Cream stands on its’ own beauty merit with a host of skin-enhancing ingredients.
Itâ€™s Not Easy Being The Moisturizing SideKick
The moisturizer product of many treating topical/moisturizer duos is typically the Robin, who pales in comparison to the superheroÂ Batman product. Robin is a perfectly respectable sidekick that does his part. But you’re primarily interested in Batman. You just wouldn’t watch Robin alone. But know this:Â BeautyStat Universal Pro-Bio Moisture Boost Cream is no Robin the sidekick within this dynamic duo. This cream stands on its’ own merit with a host of skin-enhancing ingredients, each with their own superpowers.
So, let’s just skip to the good stuff and examine why this cream merits your attention: the ingredients.
Pomegranate Sterols is a safe, natural pomegranate based skincare ingredient. Those juicy, jewel-like seeds are arils. Arils are packed with antioxidants, minerals, vitamins A, C, K, and E plus folic acid. Pomegranates contain three times the antioxidants of wine or green tea. 
Pomegranate SterolÂ is made by extracting the arils juice. Â It increases skin barrier formation and improves skin hydration. Â Testing showsÂ Pomegranate Sterols holds double itsâ€™ weight in water. Meanwhile, it packs an amazing collagen-building punch.
Ceramide-2 is one of the ceramides that hold the lipid barrier which protects the skin. We are born with enough ceramides but lose them with age or sometimes with overly harsh facial washing. Ceramide-2 is used for its’ ability to moisturize and hold moisture in the skin.
GANODERMA LUCIDUM EXTRACT
Ganoderma is also called Asian Mushroom Extract,Â reishiÂ orÂ lingzhi. This mushroom has been used for centuries in traditional medicinal practice and is known asÂ “mushroom of immortality”.Â Â Ganoderma Lucidum Extract comes from a mushroom with polysaccharides. These are responsible for the skinâ€™s natural ability to hydrate and retain water. It promotes cell regeneration while reducing skin inflammation, puffiness, and wrinkles.
Bifida Extract or Bifida Ferment Lysate is a probiotic in the kombucha family. It reduces skin sensitivity and kick starts the skin into healing itself.  It is an important ingredient in the BeautyStat duo because it enables more sensitive skin to tolerate the potential irritation of transformative topicals, like Vitamin C.
BETULA ALBA BARK EXTRACT
Betula Alba Bark Extract comes from the White Birch tree. ItÂ contains vitamins B1, B2, A, C, and E. It is known for skin healing, conditioning, and anti-inflammatory properties. Research indicates thatÂ that birch bark extract can improve the skin barrier, increase skin hydration and reduce trans-epidermal water loss .
Glycerin a non-toxic natural humectant and hydrator that helps skin attract and maintain moisture.
Cetearyl olivate isÂ an emulsifier. It is a natural and safe alternative to PEG. It is made of a “goodâ€ alcohol & olive fatty acids.
Olives giveÂ Cetearyl olivate hydrating superpowers. The olive fatty acids give deep hydration, smooth skin and give the product a silky texture.Â
It is a gel-like cream that absorbs quickly without being greasy. Vitamin C serum, makeup and sunscreen donâ€™t pill on top. No chalky residue. Takes a minute to dry down, but it dries down smooth and leaves skin soft.
We love that it is fragrance-free, just a dab goes a long way, and it complements and supports the BeautyStat Universal C.
With several ingredients that boost the skin’s ability to tolerate and buffer a potentially drying active like Vitamin C, this moisturizer is a real find for those with sensitive skin.
Would this cream protect my skin if I overapplied topicals with potent actives? Â I had to over-apply Vitamin C and find out.
I deliberately slathered my face with BeautyStat Universal C Skin Refiner. I slathered the under eyes, throat, near my mouth, under the nostrils, all those sensitive areas in a deliberate attempt to see if I COULD get irritated with the BeautyStat Universal Pro-Bio Moisture Boost Cream on top. I really slathered. Then I applied the Boost Cream.
At first, I felt a bit tight but there was no redness no peeling or dryness, and skin looked really good the next day with no hint of my overzealous application. I typically apply Vitamin C gingerly, but with the BeautyStat Universal Pro-Bio Moisture Boost Cream, I’ve applied more generously. That really helps treat problematic areas.
We find this cream to be highly useful with other actives such as Retin-A, Alpha Lipoic Acid, or post AHA peels. If you find your skin too sensitive to tolerate these or other actives, this boost cream could change the game for your skin.
We even suggest using the Boost cream a few days BEFORE starting the active topical to get it in optimal shape and hydration to maximize your chances of successfully tolerating Vitamin C or other creams.
