The Skincare Company Hydrating Moisturiser
This is it: Hydrating moisturiser.
What is it: A luxurious formula that excels in providing the essential nourishment demanded by mature, aged, dry and dehydrated skin. It is enriched with lanolin to penetrate the deeper epidermal layers, provide superior protection and create a moisture barrier.
The inclusion of Vitamin B3 (niacinamide) increases the biosynthesis of stratum corneum lipids including ceramide, decreasing TEWL (Transepidermal Water Loss) and subsequently improving skin barrier function. Vitamins A and E are also included to provide antioxidant protection.
Why we love it:
- Lanolin to provide a superior moisture barrier
- Vitamin B3 (niacinamide) improves skin barrier function
- Broad antioxidant protection through vitamin A and E
- Improves dehydrated skin
Mature, dry and dehydrated skins.
Recommended primarily for evening use, however some love this product so much they use it in the morning as well. Apply after your serums or cleansing. Apply SPF on top if wearing this product during the day.
Rich and creamy; leaves skin dewy and hydrated.
Niacinamide: (Vitamin B3) helps to visibly improve the appearance of enlarged pores, improve skin’s elasticity, address uneven skin tone, reduce fine lines and dullness, and strengthen skin's surface.
Panthenol: Attracts and holds moisture. Sometimes called pro-vitamin B5, panthenol mixes readily with many different types of ingredients, making it a versatile ingredient to be used in formulas because it improves the look and feel of skin. Fantastic in supporting wound healing, improving the regrowth of cells, essential for maintaining a healthy barrier function in the skin.
Tocopheryl Acetate: Not oxidised, Tocopheryl Acetate can penetrate through the skin to the living cells, where about 5% is converted to free Tocopheryl and provides beneficial antioxidant effects.
Retinyl Palmitate: Combination of retinol (pure vitamin A) and the fatty acid palmitic acid. Research has shown it to be an effective antioxidant when applied to skin. Retinyl palmitate is found naturally in skin, where it works as an antioxidant, particularly in regard to helping protect skin from UV light exposure, to some extent.
Allantoin: Allantoin is considered an effective skin-soothing and skin-conditioning agent. Allantoin occurs naturally in the body. Allantoin provides a natural protectant for healing skin and is believed to promote cell regeneration. By stimulating the natural rejuvenation process, allantoin can help reduce acne scars and create a more balanced skin tone.
