Composition, properties and application features
Innovative moisturizer that restores skin’s moisture reservoirs, as it protects it from harmful UVA and UVB radiation. Enjoy extended moisture and anti-aging benefits with a light, refreshing formula that absorbs quickly into the skin.
This cream is formulated for combination – oily skin. Another version of this cream is available for normal – dry skin (DEEP MOISTURE cream).
Restoring Moisture Reservoirs
This cream was developed to provide a solution for consistent moisture deficiency in the epidermis, and not just treat its symptoms. Young, healthy skin has natural reservoirs of moisturizing factors, such as Hyaluronic acid, Urea, lactate and amino acids. This cream is unique because it provides the essential building blocks for restoring the natural reservoirs that deteriorated with time, unlike common moisturizers that only moisturize externally or create a layer that prevents loss of moisture.
Directions: Apply onto cleansed face every morning.
Recommendations: For best results, apply HYDRA THERAPY serum first, and use HYDRA BOOSTER MASK several times a week. For extended sun exposure, apply SUNBLOCK SPF50 Cream as well.
What Is SPF?
Sun Protection Factor is a measure of sunscreens’ ability to protect the skin from UVB rays that damage skin, cause sunburns and can contribute to skin cancer. SPF 15 means the sunscreen protects skin from burning for 15 times longer than without it. For example, if it takes 20 minutes for unprotected skin to start reddening, using an SPF 15 sunscreen theoretically prevents reddening for 300 minutes (5 hours).
However, this is only a rough estimate for ideal circumstances. In reality, sunscreen shouldn’t be expected to stay effective for longer than two hours without reapplication. Moreover, two types of ultraviolet radiation damage the skin (UVB and UVA), but SPF only refers to UVB. Nowadays we know that UVA rays are extremely harmful and can contribute to skin cancer as well, but most beauty products don’t protect against UVA properly. In the beginning of 2014 the Israeli Ministry of Health determined the legal guidelines for UVA protection.
Glucoronic acid – Produced in controlled biotechnological techniques, this acid stimulates skin to produce Hyaluronic acid, glycosaminoglycans and other moisturizing factorsand improves the skin’s moisture preservation mechanisms.
Hyaluronic acid – Mole: 1.3M Da.
Filling Spheres – Tiny absorbing spheres made of encapsulated hyaluronic acid and seaweeds. When penetrated into skin, they absorb water and swell up to diligently sustain high moisture balance and dramatically diminish fine lines.
Tinosorb S – UVA absorber. Highly durable and colorless.
Parsol MCX – Strong UVB absorber. Highly durable (water resistant as well) and colorless.
