Active Ingredients
The lightweight moisturizer features a combination of active ingredients including mucopolysaccharides, azulene, allantoin, vitamin E and vitamin B5. Mucopolysaccharides provide intense oil-free hydration, while azulene, a chamomile derivative, and allantoin, an anti-irritant, help to calm and soothe your skin. Vitamin E protects your skin from environmental damage, and vitamin B5 works to promote cellular renewal and heal damaged skin.
The lightweight moisturizer's active ingredients include pure aloe vera, grapeseed extract and vitamins A, E and C. Aloe vera, hyaluronic acid and glycerin help to attract moisture to the skin, while squalene (a derivative of an emollient found in healthy skin) and dimethicone help to seal in that moisture. Meanwhile, grapeseed extract and vitamins A, C and E offer antioxidant protection against environmental damage and also nourish skin to improve its elasticity and tone.
