"Mio ’s Boob Tube Bust Cream is back with a new and improved, 100% vegan-friendly formula, supercharged with powerful firming ingredients that hydrate and support the skin on our necks, décolletage and chest, an area of our bodies that’s often neglected."
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, sodium hyaluronate.

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: chondrus crispus extract, cocos nucifera oil.
