Lightweight Moisturizer with pHrotect™
Formulated for eczema and the most sensitive of skin.
While other skincare products claim to be "pH-balanced", they only temporarily correct skin-surface pH. Irritated skin, and especially skin with eczema, naturally reverts to pH levels that are detrimental to the health of the skin barrier over time. Our products feature pHrotect™, our pH-locking technology, which SETS skin surface pH at a level that is proven to be therapeutic for sensitive skin, and KEEPS it there.
When your skin barrier is allowed to heal, it becomes more effective at keeping moisture in and irritants out. This aids in breaking the cycle of flare ups and amplifies the positive effects of other skin-boosting ingredients.
In addition to pHrotect, his formulation is chock-full of thoughtfully-curated powerhouse ingredients that are known to be beneficial to sensitive skin. These support skin hydration, resilience, and evening out skin tone (including but not limited to our special, skin-mimicking ceramide complex, niacinamide, phytosphingosine, and hyaluronic acid).

Lightweight Moisturizer with pHrotect™
What it means to "lock in" skin surface pH
Skin surface pH fluctuates throughout daily life
Your skin handles a lot. Daily activities such as washing your hands, applying makeup, or going to the gym can all lead skin surface pH to shift to levels that are increase skin sensitivity. All of this happens without us ever noticing - largely because healthy skin is able to regulate skin surface pH and bring it back to the ideal pH over time.
Without Soteri, it can take hours for skin to recover ideal pH levels after pH-altering events such as a shower or washing your hands. This process has been shown to taken even longer for eczema and irritated skin, meaning that skin spends longer at the wrong pH, making it more prone to irritation, contributing to the cycle of irritation and flare-ups.
WITH Soteri, skin surface pH is immediately corrected upon application and pHrotect™ technology locks skin in at that therapeutic pH (unlike other "pH-balanced" products which only temporarily correct skin-surface pH).
How to use
Apply in daily, in the mornings, after any topical medications but before makeup or heavy moisturizers.
Reapply each time you wash the area of application (ie washing your hands with soap and water, taking a shower)
While many users see results within the first 1-2 weeks, this depends on the state of your skin barrier. Soteri works best with long term, regular use.
Skin irritation and stinging
Depending on how irritated your skin is, skin may sting upon initial application. However, the ingredients in our formulation are safe to use, and the stinging should be temporary and harmless. As your skin heals, the sensation should fade. Stick with it! Good things come to those who wait.
I don't have eczema, but I've always had flaky, sensitive skin that stings in cold weather or when I apply certain skincare products. I tried a bunch of expensive products that were recommended to me at Sephora, but nothing helped and most of the products would be stingy even after months of use. I received a free sample of Soteri, which I have been using for a few months now. I'm not a skincare guy - I don't like having a complicated routine (anything over 3 steps is too much), but this stuff has helped a lot! It used to sting when I first applied it, but I know it was supposed to and it was a feedback signal that it was working. After about 4-5 days, the stinging stopped and now, my redness and flakiness is gone.
I just do one quick pump after my daily shower, and my skin is happy. My wife has commented that my skin looked dewy and smooth. I've even had coworkers notice my new glow over Zoom meetings, so whatever voodoo magic is happening, I'm loving it!
I have been using Soteri Skin Barrier on the backs of my hands, which have gotten rough and inflamed from a year-and-a-half of hand sanitizer, heavy hand washing, and stress. It's been slow going using Soteri twice or three times a day for a couple of months now, but the improvement has been steady. My hands look and feel so different now.
I have had eczema for 15 years, trying several products, but without the expected results. Soteri was a game-changer. After one week, the red patches on my hand disappeared by using the moisturizer twice per day. Now, I used it after taking showers, and I have never experienced eczema again. 100% recommended.
I have been using Soteri for several months. I can tell my skin has improved as I have fewer flare-ups and I have stopped using hydrocortisone cream for the past few months. I feel my skin gets thinner when I use hydrocortisone and it doesn't look healthy. This is the only product I have tried that allows me to stay away from using hydrocortisone and my skin doesn't get ridiculously itchy anymore that wake me up in the middle of the night. I'm using it as a daily moisturizer on my face and hands.
Within a week of using the product, the area on my skin that was prone to eczema flare ups significantly reduced in redness and was no longer irritated. I was amazed at how quickly it cleared up my skin and left it feeling soft and smooth! The product feels very cool, airy, and light on the skin and it's enough to keep my skin hydrated throughout the day. I have been using for a little more than a month and it has helped reduced the severity of my flare-up and I'm able to slowly pull myself away from using my prescribed steroid cream. Soteri is now a part of my daily skincare routine :)
So happy to hear this! Thank you for the kind words, Wendy!
