"Ultra pigmented for 24 hours of intense colour and hydration"
WIMJ summary

This product can help improve hydration of the skin with the two types of ingredients.

The first type is called “humectants”:
these ingredients help attract water. When humectants are on the surface of the skin, they “pull in” the moisture from the outside environment, or from within deeper layers of the skin. The following ingredients in this product do the job: glycerin, butylene glycol.

This product also contains ingredients called “occlusives”. They help reduce the speed with which our skin loses moisture to the outside environment. These ingredients also help soften the upper layer of the skin, so it feels less tight and nicer to the touch. The following ingredients in this product do the job: dimethicone, hippophae rhamnoides oil.

The following ingredients in this product are especially good for supporting the skin barrier and helping with the hydration level: urea

45% - 55%
Used to create a nice product texture and help delivery of other ingredients. Might be somewhat helpful in attracting water to the upper layer of the skin
6.6% - 8.1%
An emollient that helps soften the skin. Could be comedogenic
4.4% - 5.4%
Helps to stabilize the product formulation while softening the upper layer of the skin. Can be irritating
3.2% - 3.9%
2.5% - 3%
Helps oil and water mix togehter and creates a nice product texture
2% - 2.5%
An emollient that softens the skin and forms a protective layer on its surface. Helps water and oil mix together
1.7% - 2%
A non-drying alcohol. Works as an emollient. Helps water and oil mix together and creates a nice product texture
1.5% - 1.8%

TBC
A silicone that helps to reduce water loss from the surface of the skin. Can temporarily "fill in" lines and wrinkles, absorb oil, and create a nice product finish
1.3% - 1.6%
Used to thicken the product's consistency
0.9% - 1.1%
An emollient that helps soften the upper layer of the skin. Might have some weak anti-oxidant properties
0.7% - 1%
An emollient that softens the skin
0.6% - 0.85%
An aromatic blend of unspecified and possibly irritating ingredients
0.45% - 0.7%
An exfoliating and moisturizing alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA). Typically causes less irritation than other AHAs, for example, glycolic acid. At high concentrations (about 15%), lactic acid can help reduce lines and wrinkles. Recent studies show that lactic acid can support the "good" bacteria living on skin's surface (healthy skin microbiom)
0.45% - 0.65%
Helps preserve products and creates a nice product texture
0.45% - 0.65%
One of the best moisturizing ingredients. Naturally present in skin. It attracts water to the upper layer of the skin working as a humectant
0.45% - 0.7%
An emollient that can also help water and oil mix together, as well as prevent bacteria growth in products
0.45% - 0.65%
Helps mask the smell of other ingredients and helps preserve the product formulation
0.3% - 0.55%
Used to thicken the product formulation and might help to add minerals to the surface of the skin. It is used in scrubs as a physical exfoliant. Can increase sensitivity to other ingredients if left on the skin or used in high concentration
0.3% - 0.55%
0.25% - 0.45%
Naturally present in skin (urea makes up about 7% of natural moisturizing factors in skin). Attracts water to the upper layer of the skin. Also has a positive effect on the skin barrier beyond the humectant action. Can enhance penetration of other ingredients. Is an exfoliating ingredient when used in high concentrations
0.25% - 0.4%
A good emollient. Contains various ingredients including vitamins and fatty acids that could work in the skin to neutralize free radicals and minimize moisture loss - if enough of these compounds is able to penetrate the skin in an active form.
0.25% - 0.5%
A preservative. Is a frequent allergen
0.00075% - 0.0015%
A more stable but less bio-available form of vitamin E compared to Tocopherol. Might help moisturize and protect the skin from free radicals, but mostly used in low concentrations to stabilize other ingredients.
0.2% - 0.35%
Traditionally used to treat sunburns, dermatitis and inflammation, but evidence for its effectiveness is lacking. The extract can contain humectants that help attract water into the skin
