Product summary

Based on the ingredient list, "Dr. Barbara Sturm - Super Anti-Aging Eye Cream" 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. Fructose, glycerin, pantolactone, sodium hyaluronate and sucrose 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 np, helianthus annuus seed oil, squalane, brassica campestris sterols and cetyl alcohol) help to reduce the moisture loss from the skin. They also soften the skin surface and relieve the feeling of dryness and tightness.
