Product summary

"Kneipp - Soothing Calendula & Orange Foot Repair Butter" has a good moisturizing formula. To work well, any moisturizer needs to include a combination of water-binding and emollient ingredients. Kneipp - Soothing Calendula & Orange Foot Repair Butter ticks this box. Humectants in this product (panthenol, urea, glycerin and caprylyl 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). Butyrospermum parkii butter, myristyl myristate, cetearyl alcohol, prunus amygdalus dulcis oil and caprylyl 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.
