Moisturizing Cream or Lotion: What's in it?

Isabelle Afriat – Feb 8, 2016

MoisturizationIn both facial care and hand & body care, skin moisturization is a key feature. Many physiological aspects (strateum corneum hydration, reduced TEWL, smoother skin…) have to be covered as well as the skin type & skin concern when formulating a moisturizer.

To ease your next formulation work, let’s clarify:
  • Why moisturizing creams or lotions usually contain a combination of emollients, occlusive and humectants additives?

  • What ingredients will help achieve properties such as rapidly absorbed, non-sensitizing, non comedogenic and long lasting?

  • Why the regulation of aquaporins matter for good skin hydration?

  • How to well adapt your formulation strategy to skin concerns (oily skin, very dry skin…)?
