Skin Quenching light moisturiser
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 and oily skin types - especially dehydrated skin, 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.

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

Dispense around a pump of moisturiser (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. Complete your daytime routine with a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin after the moisturiser has fully dried down.
