Based on the ingredient list, "Alchimie Forever - Skin Repair Gel" can work well for skin moisturization. To work well, any moisturizer needs to include a combination of water-binding and emollient ingredients. Alchimie Forever - Skin Repair Gel ticks this box. Panthenol, glycerin and polyglycerin-6 in this product (humectants) attract water molecules to the upper layer of the skin (the water comes from the outside air or from the deeper layers of the skin if the air is dry). Emollients in this formulation (isopropyl myristate) help to reduce the moisture loss from the skin. They also soften the skin surface and relieve the feeling of dryness and tightness.
- An effective concentration of Panthenol (pro-vitamin B5) - about 3.30% - 4.90%. Panthenol helps strengthen the skin barrier, improve hydration and reduce inflammation in skin.
