The outermost layer of our skin is a barrier, designed to protect and repel water and other environmental influences. This is best illustrated in the shower, or when splashing water on the face. In these daily activities, water beads up on layers of healthy skin preventing it from entering our system in massive quantities.
This same illustration applies to moisturizers and other products applied to our skin surfaces - the skin surface is designed to repel most of these products.
Many desire the feeling of moisture sitting on the surface of their skin, often after a facial or special application of multiple moisturizers and serums. The thick, rich feel of such products on the skin appears to offer the skin many nutrients to absorb and enrich the skin. However, this is most often not the case. As stated earlier, our skin is a barrier designed to prevent things from being absorbed in excess. Unfortunately most of these products are simply wasted.
In parched circumstances, and especially when the sun is involved, unprotected skin can turn dry resulting in cracks and fissures that may invite infection and inflammation.
Choosing products that are able to protect against damaging environmental forces (like the sun) is important. Equally important is cleansing with products that don't break down the skin layers so they can continue to be strong for years and years to come.

Hyaluronic Acid is a natural ingredient and one of the most powerful moisturizers available. Hylauronic Acid can hold 1,000 times its weight in water, making it an ideal humectant that can plump skin and minimize the appearance of wrinkles and because of the unique formulation, helps give the entire face a tighter and more lifted appearance.
Vitamin C helps improve the appearance of pigment irregularities caused by aging and sun damage. Vitamin C is an ascorbic acid that is a powerful antioxidant that helps promote elasticity and suppleness.
Sun Protection: Zinc Oxide is considered the safest and most protective ingredient available in guarding the skin from the harmful effect of ultraviolet (UV) rays. SPF 30 blocks out 97% of UVB rays. An advanced organic chemical agent acts as the second line of defense, absorbing any rays that penetrate the Zinc Oxide. A precise combination of antioxidants is also added. The unique formulation helps to prevent the formation of free radicals caused by UV exposure that can also damage cells. Additional benefits are the temporary delay in premature aging and assistance in preventing further age spots.
Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A) belongs to the family of chemical compounds known as Retinoids and is one of the most important ingredients known for the appearance of the skin. These powerful molecules in combination with Vitamin B3, improves the appearance of aging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines.
Benefits last with continued and regular use.
