Today, expert dermo-cosmetic formulas take a multi-pronged approach to hydrating skin:


• Emollient agents make skin softer and more pliable by filling the gaps between the dead cells at skin’s surface.
• Humectants act like sponge molecules to capture water and rebalance skin’s protective hydrolipidic film.
• Occlusive substances create a sealed barrier to stop moisture evaporating off the epidermis.
• Prebiotic agents replenish skin’s microbiome to create a further layer of natural defenses.
