Product summary

Based on the ingredients included, "Augustinus Bader - The Body Lotion" works well for moisturizing the skin. The formulation is based on a combination of good humectants and emollients. Both are needed to increase the skin hydration level. Panthenol, alanyl glutamine, anhydroxylitol, arginine and glycerin 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 (ceramide ng, ceramide np, cholesterol, arginine and caprylic/capric triglyceride) help to reduce the moisture loss from the skin. They also soften the skin surface and relieve the feeling of dryness and tightness.

Ingredient callouts

  • As a plus, this moisturizer also contains ceramides (ceramide np 0.30% - 0.50% and ceramide ng 0.30% - 0.55%). Ceramides are a type of lipids that our skin produces itself. They are a building block of the skin's barrier. Ceramides used in skincare are synthetic or extracted from plants. They work well for softening the skin surface and "patch holes" in the skin's barrier.
  • This formulation also uses an effective concentration of panthenol (pro-vitamin B5) - about 1.60% - 2.00%. Panthenol helps strengthen the skin barrier, improve hydration and reduce inflammation in skin.
