Urea - Urea has incredible, hydrating properties which is why it is used in the very best moisturisers. It gently exfoliates and moisturises at the same time. Urea already makes up part of skin’s natural moisturising factor, but our natural supply of this i decreases with age. Decreases trans-epidermal water loss from environmental assault, but also has an extended effect on the inner workings of the skin. Can retain water in the skin as well as defending it.
Tocopheryl Acetate - This is a form of vitamin E that is good for moisturising and conditioning skin, whilst defending against free radicals.
Creatine - Simply put, creatine consists of 3 amino acids and it stimulates collagen production. Creatine gives your skin cells the power to regenerate. Creatine is produced in the liver, kidneys and pancreas and helps to supply energy to your cells all over the body. Found naturally in your skin, creatine acts as an energy reservoir and is important for the energy supply and function of your cells. Our body’s production of creatine declines as we age, but we can apply it manually thanks to wonderful eye creams like Payot’s Hydra 24+ Regard Glacon.
Sea salt - Sea salt is actually anti-inflammatory and holds properties to soothe skin and calm breakouts and irritation. Salt also helps to cleanse pores deeply as it sloughs off dead skin cells, to reveal fresh new ones.
Sodium Hyaluronate - This is a type of hyaluronic acid, which can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in moisture. Using hyaluronic acid results in smoother, softer skin, decreased wrinkles due to the fact that is water retaining.
