Formulated using components of the skin’s natural moisturizing factor (NMF), this clinically proven blend combines antioxidants and humectants with biocompatible hydrators that effectively move through intracellular aquaporins (water channels) for superior hydration. The function and youthful appearance of all skin types is optimised by maintaining adequate hydration levels, significantly reducing transepidermal water loss (TEWL), resulting in soft, glowing healthy skin.
- Reduced transepidermal water loss
- All reactive, inflamed skin concerns

Aloe Vera Leaf Juice – best known for its softening and soothing benefits.
Glycerin – is a humectant and emollient that helps to bind water to the skin. Glycerin is one of the most effective topical hydrators as it is readily accepted through the aquaporins (water channels) in the skin cells. It also improves the appearance and function of the skin by assisting in the healthy maturation of keratinocytes.
Sodium Hyaluronate – is a form of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring glycosaminoglycan with exceptional lubricating and hydrating qualities. It can hold 1,000 times its weight in water.
Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B-5) – improves and increases the moisture-retention capacity of the skin.
Sodium PCA – naturally occurs in human skin and is an important ingredient for healthy skin function. It has been shown to hold 250 times its weight in water and significantly improves skin elasticity.
Niacinamide – is a form of the B vitamin that is required for proper circulation. Its demonstrated occlusive benefits help to reduce TEWL and improve the moisture content of the skin.
