Based on the ingredient list, "CeraVe - Moisturising Cream Pot with Ceramides for Dry to Very Dry Skin" can work well for skin moisturization. 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 (glycerin and sodium hyaluronate) 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). Ceramide eop, ceramide np, phytosphingosine, cholesterol and caprylic/capric triglyceride 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.
- As a plus, this moisturizer also contains Ceramides (phytosphingosine 0.10% - 0.45%, ceramide eop 0.50% - 1.20%, ceramide ap 0.80% - 1.20% and ceramide np 1.10% - 1.60%). 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.
