Apply a thin layer to your face as the last step in your routine to semi-occlude your skin.
Mix 1-2 drops into your favorite moisturizer as a barrier booster.
Fun fact: you can mix Super Saturated and Buffer Jelly together to create a custom moisturizer perfectly tailored for your skin. Oily? Use more Super Saturated. Dry? Use more Buffer Jelly.
This gold standard occlusive - and dermatologist favorite - forms a barrier on the surface of the skin, immediately preventing moisture loss and locking juicy hydration in. We’re using it in a semi-occlusive “microdose”, making it appropriate for daily use, for any skin type.
0.5% EPIDERMAL LIPID COMPLEX
Ceramide NP, Free Fatty Acids, and Acai Sterols are blended to mimic the golden ratio found in your skin, which has been clinically proven to help accelerate barrier recovery. While petrolatum works immediately, this complex works overtime to repair the skin barrier long term.
80% BIO-LIPID BLEND
A blend of non-comedogenic oils (Jojoba Oil, Squalane, Safflower Oil) mimic the natural triglycerides, squalane, wax esters, and free fatty acids found in the sebum.
1.6% SKIN SOOTHERS
A comforting combo of oat oil, panthenyl triacetate, and green tea wax that reduces redness and irritation for skin that not only feels better, but also heals better.
This product is vegan and does not contain any animal derived ingredients.
In a study of 33 people, Buffer Jelly was a clinically proven barrier breakthrough.

Every purchase of Buffer Jelly generates 54% LESS WASTE and 67% LESS EMISSIONS when compared to a typical face oil.
How we achieved this:
— 50% recycled plastic content in our packaging– we’ll avoid using the equivalent of 28,000 virgin plastic water bottles this year.*
— The lightweight product design avoids up to 54% of waste and 67% of emissions compared to a typical facial oil.
Is this product lightweight?
The best way to describe the texture of Buffer Jelly is between a facial oil and a balm… but we not-so-secretly think it’s a little jelly-like. So it’s going to feel a teeny bit heavier than a traditional oil, but much lighter than a balm! Plus, the finish is soft, emollient, and glowy, without feeling greasy, sticky, or thick like traditional slugging ointments.
Is it suitable for oily, acne-prone skin? How about on top of my acne treatments?
Buffer Jelly was created specifically to relieve dry, sensitive, compromised skin, but we kept all skin types in mind when formulating. All ingredients were screened for comedogenicity, but it’s always safe to patch test if you’re unsure!
Because Buffer Jelly is semi-occlusive, it doesn’t completely ‘trap’ actives and enhance penetration/irritation like pure petrolatum. However, everyone’s skin is different so again, we recommend patch testing if you have particularly sensitive skin.
Do I need to use a moisturizer with Buffer Jelly?
Nope! Buffer Jelly can be used directly after application of toners/serums. But you can also DIY a custom moisturizer by mixing it into your fave hydrating serum, like Super Saturated. So experiment freely and get your goo on!
WHAT IS MICRO-SLUGGING?
Using petrolatum to seal in your skin’s moisture, aka “slugging”, has been a cult classic practice for centuries for good reason– it works! But it isn’t exactly for everyone… so we invented “micro-slugging”! A “microdose” of petrolatum in a barrier boosting product to semi-occlude your skin, lightly sealing in moisture. It’s a daily ritual for better barrier repair that keeps the heft and mess of traditional slugging off your pillowcase and out of your hair.
After 2 weeks of using Buffer Jelly:
REPLENISH: 63% reduction in skin dryness
SMOOTH: 38% reduction in skin roughness
GLOW: 31% increase in skin radiance
