Skär Gel is comprised of a polymer that forms a layer of protection over skin that allows injured tissue to heal while remaining hydrated, oxygenated, and protected from harmful bacterial infection. The silicone-family ingredients in this formulation create an elastic layer much like an invisible bandage to protect a wound or scar during the healing process. This occlusive layer will also help to keep a scar or injured tissue moist for optimal healing. It is important to seal in moisturization while a wound or scar is healing so that the injury can heal properly and not leave a raised mark on the skin. Skär Gel will help to soften and flatten the appearance of a scar by providing an optimal environment for the injury to heal itself, minimizing the over-production of collagen that can lead to a raised scar or keloid.
- Silicone – a mineral used in cosmetic formulations to enable the product to glide on the skin without causing irritation, which is important for application to traumatized skin. Cyclopentasiloxane used in this formula is a silicone polymer that forms a protective barrier on the skin while it is healing.
- Dimethicone – a form of silicone used to protect the skin against moisture loss and provide a comforting, non-greasy feel for sensitive skin.
