About our Science

Zerafite was created by top skin barrier scientists and dermatologists from S. Korea and the USA who worked together to bring the latest technologies from both countries. These barrier repair moisturizers are very advanced. Watch the video to learn more about the maltese cross pattern and see below how it is used to test the strength of barrier repair moisturizers in the market.

Zerafite products were developed by an expert in skin barrier repair and specifically designed to match the skin's natural protective lipid barrier.
