THE ULTIMATE among Moisturizers, this is our new Moisturizing Cream, and we are in love.
The Cream includes Sodium Hyaluronate the sodium salt form of Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid is touted as a miracle ingredient as it has a great capacity to draw and retain moisture to the skin, creating a plumping effect, thus reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
We've never included Hyaluronic Acid in our products since with its large molecular size it was unlikely to be absorbed into deeper layers of the skin. Sodium Hyaluronate - the sodium salt form of Hyaluronic Acid, has molecules that are more water-soluble, allowing it to penetrate deeper into the skin. It’s also more stable and less prone to oxidation.
Both Hyaluronic Acid and Sodium Hyaluronate are used for similar skincare purposes, primarily hydrating, firming, and promoting a youthful look.
Recently through advanced bio-fermentation processes of non-GMO plant resources, Sodium Hyaluronate can now be found in various molecular sizes and weights, each demonstrating different penetrative abilities and benefits to the skin. In this Moisturizer and in two new serums we're releasing soon we are using a mixture of low and high molecular weights.
The smaller the molecule size the more readily it's able to penetrate the skin to replenish its moisture barrier and promote a firmer, more plump appearance while reducing the skin’s moisture evaporation. The larger molecular sized Sodium Hyaluronate does not penetrate, but rather forms a protective film on the skin's surface, where it draws in moisture to boost hydration and rapidly enhance skin texture. Its used in products where a more instant hydration and plumping effect is desired.
Including a Botanical source of Hyaluronic Acid as well as Sodium Hyalyuronate of different molecular sizes makes this Moisturizer a high impact product that achieves both fast acting and intensive results.
Of-course in addition to Sodium Hyaluronate we're still relying on our highly nourishing and deep penetrating Vegetable Oils, Nut Butters, Aloe-Vera Gel and floral Hydrosols to achieve the creamy texture our Moisturizing creams have always been prized for.
This cream has been well received by our original testers, and we were inspired to expand and create three distinct versions:
- THE Original: The scent of a spicy bark; some would call it exotic, others would consider the scent more medicinal.
- Citrus Fresh: A lighter version of THE Original Cream with a delicate and refreshing citrus scent.
- Sweet Almond (Unscented): The Unscented version of this Cream has the lavish scent of pure ingredients--Cocoa Butter, Coconut Oil, Sweet Almond and Apricot Kernel Oils. It is slightly heavier and thicker in texture than the previous two versions.
DESIGNED FOR: Dry Skin, Sensitive Skin and Mature skin with fine lines or deep wrinkles. It is a very rich Cream, so it is not for those with Oily or Combination/Oily skin.
BENEFITS: Moisturizing, Firming, Hydrating, Plumping and Enhancing Retexturing of Uneven Skin.
HOW TO USE: Apply this cream at night, after cleansing and toning and over your treatment Serum. Apply a small amount to fingertips and massage gently. If it's the only cream you use it can be used effectively both day and night. When the weather is particularly dry re-apply throughout the day following a Hydrating Toner.
NOTE: Refrigerate this cream ONLY if you do not intend to use it daily. For that purpose we've included a smaller jar as a gift. Fill the smaller jar if you intend to keep the cream for a prolonged period of time and keep the larger jar in the refrigerator.
