Product summary

Based on the ingredients included, "BABOR - ReVersive Pro Youth Eye Cream" works well for moisturizing the skin. This moisturizer uses a good combo of humectants and emollients. These both types of ingredients are essentials for improving the skin hydration and keeping the skin barrier healthy. Panthenol, biosaccharide gum-1, glycerin, mannitol and pantolactone 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 (caprylic/capric triglyceride, helianthus annuus seed oil, cetearyl alcohol, coco-caprylate and hydrogenated vegetable glycerides) 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

  • This moistruizer also contains peptides (acetyl tetrapeptide-9 0.05% - 0.15% and acetyl tetrapeptide-11 0.05% - 0.20%). Peptides is a very big group of ingredients. They all consist of a different combination of amino-acids. Our skin produces peptides naturally. Some of them work as natural anti-biotics, promote wound-healing and production of collagen. The scientists are still studying how effective the topical application of peptides is, but it is very likely that peptides in skincare are helpful. They might be able to support skin barrier restoration and even have an anti-aging benefit. At the very least, they certainly help attract water to the skin and support the hydration in this way.
  • This formulation also includes panthenol (pro-vitamin B5) at about 0.35% - 0.85% concentration. In this concentration, panthenol works effectively to improve the skin barrier and reduce inflammation.
