Product summary

Judging from the ingredient list, "Anua - Heartleaf Silky Moisture Sun Cream" works well for improving skin hydration The formulation is based on a combination of good humectants and emollients. Both are needed to increase the skin hydration level. Humectants in this product (biosaccharide gum-1, glycerin and butylene glycol) help to increase the water content in the upper layer of the skin. (These ingredients do so by "capturing" water molecules from the outside air or from within the deeper layers of the skin). Cetearyl alcohol, dibutyl adipate, glyceryl stearate, glyceryl stearate citrate and pentylene glycol in this product help decrease the water evoporation from the skin, so that it stays hydrated for longer. These ingredients also soften the skin and take away the feeling of tightness and dryness.
