Judging from the ingredient list, "Kwailnara - Moisturizing Milk Ceramide Cream" works well for improving skin hydration 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. Humectants in this product (arginine, glycerin, glyceryl acrylate/acrylic acid copolymer, glucose and honey extract) 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). Emollients in this formulation (ceramide np, arginine, butyrospermum parkii butter, caprylic/capric triglyceride and butylene glycol dicaprylate/dicaprate) help to reduce the moisture loss from the skin. They also soften the skin surface and relieve the feeling of dryness and tightness.
As a plus, this moisturizer also contains Ceramides (ceramide np 0.10% - 0.35%). 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.
