**Please note limited edition packaging with white pump dispensers for this batch - formulation is exactly the same as before though!**

Hydrated skin is crucial for optimal skin barrier function. This super lightweight, humectant-rich moisturiser which features components found in the skin’s own Natural Moisturising Factors (NMF) is formulated for normal-combination, dehydrated and oily skin types to hydrate and replenish the water content of the skin, supporting a healthy skin barrier. It leaves the skin feeling supple and comfortable whilst reducing tightness. If you dislike the feeling of heavy, cloying textures, this moisturiser is for you! Easily absorbed with a non-greasy feel.

Attracta Beauty Awards 2020 finalist.

Urea: Urea is part of the natural moisturising factor (NMF) of skin, it retains moisture and is essential for maintaining the health, function and hydration of the stratum corneum

Sodium PCA: another component of skin’s NMF which increases water content in the top layer of the skin and helps to maintain a healthy skin

Olive squalane: lightweight and easily absorbed, squalane softens and protects the skin and helping to seal in moisture - providing a degree of occlusion without feeling heavy

Skin replenishing ceramide complex: key components of your skin’s natural lipid mix that help to form a protective layer

Formulated without fragrance or essential oils & alcohol. Suitable for all skin types, especially for normal-combination and oily skin. It could also be layered under a heavier-weight moisturiser for drier skin types, who will also benefit from the humectants in this formulation.

pH: 5.5

Dispense around a pump of moisturiser onto the palm of your hand (with a couple of drops of face oil if needed) and gently massage into damp, clean skin after your other skincare steps. Can be used morning and night, and under the eye area. In the daytime, complete your routine with a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin after the moisturiser has fully dried down.

Store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight. For external use only. Keep out of reach of children. Shelf life unopened is 30 months. Once opened use within 12 months. As with all products, discontinue use if irritation occurs.
