CosMedical is proud to introduce our latest product, 4-Defy Gel Cream. Light in application, this age-defying gel cream moisturizer gently delivers sheer, lasting hydration and calms redness. It’s formulated to balance the microbiome, fortify the skin’s natural barrier, support healthy collagen levels, and protect against environmental stressors for a comfortable, more youthful complexion.
Rebalancing Four Factors for Healthy, Hydrated Skin
4-Defy Gel Cream uses cutting-edge ingredients to simultaneously provide four skin health benefits and promotes hydration, resilience, and a more youthful complexion.
1. Balances Microbiome
What it is: The skin’s microbiome is part of its defense system. The microbiome contains symbiotic organisms that support skin’s overall health, moisture, and protection.
Why address it: Skin aging and environmental damage can cause the microbiome to become less diverse. Its supportive characteristics diminish, making skin more prone to blemishes, dehydration, and damage.
How 4-Defy helps: The postbiotic complex in 4-Defy Gel Cream balances and replenishes the skin microbiome to help restore its support. This complex is clinically proven to improve skin moisture and reduce redness, helping to support balanced, hydrated skin.
2. Fortify Skin Barrier
What it is: The skin barrier locks in moisture and prevents damaging external aggressors from getting in.
Why address it: The skin barrier becomes weaker with age and environmental damage, making skin more prone to dryness, irritation, and aging damage such as lines, wrinkles, blemishes, and hyperpigmentation.
How 4-Defy helps: The bioidentical ceramides in 4-Defy Gel Cream mimic the skin’s natural fatty acids to fortify the skin barrier, rejuvenating its hydrating and protecting functions.
While most commercial products use only one chain length of ceramides, 4-Defy Gel Cream uses multiple length ceramides that are better absorbed into the skin and provide superior hydration.
3. Support Collagen Levels
What it is: Collagen is a vital protein that provides structural support to skin, helping it maintain its firmness, hydration, and shape.
Why address it: As skin ages, collagen production decreases, making aging skin more vulnerable to lines, wrinkles, and dryness. Environmental aggressors can also damage collagen to accelerate these visible signs of aging.
How 4-Defy helps: The patented tripeptides in 4-Defy Gel Cream balance and support healthy collagen by restoring its building blocks, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while improving smoothness.
The tripeptides are clinically proven to improve the appearance of forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet, supporting firm, more youthful-looking skin.
4. Protection Against Environmental Aggressors
What it is: Environmental pollutants and UV rays cause free radicals to form in the skin, which are reactive chemicals that cause damage to cells, collagen, and the skin barrier.
Why address it: The skin becomes more vulnerable to environmental damage as it ages, causing lines, wrinkles, roughness, and dullness.
How 4-Defy helps: Antioxidants like ergothioneine, found in 4-Defy Gel Cream, remove free radicals before they can cause any harm, protecting the skin and reversing visible signs of aging. Ergothioneine also helps stabilize and preserve other antioxidants, like glutathione, to support the body’s overall antioxidant defense system.
Ergothioneine outperformed vitamin C, vitamin E, and CoQ10 on antioxidant strength assays. Clinical testing also showed that ergothioneine reduces redness and swelling in individuals with acne, and that it supports overall skin health and appearance.

Patients are sure to notice two things when they use 4-Defy Gel Cream:
First, the soft gel cream texture gently glides onto skin and is quickly absorbed for a weightless, fresh feeling. 4-Defy Gel Cream calms redness and is great for all skin types, especially those with oily, sensitive, or combination skin.

Few lightweight moisturizers can match 4-Defy Gel Cream’s synergistic benefits to skin health, from balancing microbiome and collagen to fortifying the skin barrier and protecting against visible signs of aging.
