Why Your Skin Needs TrueLipids and TrueCider


Doctors traditionally recommend lotions and creams that layer on oils to treat the side effects, but don’t do anything for the underlying condition. They tell patients that they need to moisturize their dry skin and the problem will go away—even though the results almost always show this isn’t true.

You may have been prescribed medications loaded with chemicals that work for a while, but come with serious side effects—like thinner skin, folliculitis, and even addiction. We realized we needed a long-term solution. We approached the problem from a different angle. We took a step back to understand the CAUSE of the problem in eczema, psoriasis, aging skin, infected skin and other skin problems. What we found changed everything we thought we knew about skin care. And it all starts with the naturally occurring acids on your skin.

Healthy Ph Balance

Healthy skin has a pH that is moderately acidic—between 4.6 - 5.6. This moderately acidic pH naturally protects your skin against harmful bacteria and viruses and supports a healthy skin barrier that keeps moisture in and other harmful elements out. However, when you wash your skin with traditional soaps, you scrub away the skin’s natural acidity and make it alkaline. Even using pure water washes away your skin’s natural acids. Most lotions and moisture replacement therapies are very alkaline too, which makes the problem worse.

TrueLipids from CherylLee MD combines powerful and skin soothing ingredients to create the best possible solutions for a wide range of skin conditions. Every ingredient is scientifically backed and has passed rigorous analysis for toxicity and allergenicity. TrueLipids is safe for all skin types and all ages.


With countless research studies showing effectiveness in eczema, acne and rosacea, niacinamide also packs an amazing anti-inflammatory punch. Niacinamide also has DNA-reparative functionalities that are perfect for damaged, inflamed and infected skin. The TrueLipids combination of niacinamide and 18 ß-glycyrrhetinic acid is incredibly soothing to your skin.

Glycyrrhetinic Acid

Certain anti-inflammatory agents play a significant role in restoring a healthy skin barrier. The ingredient that is most helpful is called 18 ß-glycyrrhetinic acid. Despite its scientific sounding name, this compound is derived from licorice and has significant anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and DNA reparative qualities.

Scientists who have worked with 18 ß-glycyrrhetinic acid have noted that it fights staphylococcal and MRSA infections as well as viral infections like RSV and Candida. All three of these healthy skin secrets play an important role in relieving painful, dry, itchy red skin conditions. When you combine them together in the right concentrations, what you get is a powerful skin care product that helps support and restore healthy skin.

Healthy Lipid Replacement

TrueLipids help create a healthy skin barrier with a delicate balance of ceramides, phytosphingosine, very long chain fatty acids, and cholesterol esters. Too much of one or the other is what leads to multiple skin diseases. Too little of these important lipids and your skin dries out and cracks.

Many of the treatments recommended by doctors today are made with just one of these critical ingredients, like cholesterol. However, if you put cholesterol on your skin without the balance of other lipids, the result can lead to eczema, increased wrinkles, and dried-out skin and rashes. TrueLipids aids in replacing the right lipids in the right combination is a vital step toward healthier skin.

Free of the Top 88 Allergens

Perhaps most important of all, TrueLipids is made without any of the 88 top allergens commonly found in other skincare products—things like bees wax, parabens, PEGs, fragrances, dyes and 83 other potentially allergenic ingredients. TrueLipids is truly allergen free.
