WIMJ summary

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

The first type is called “humectants”:

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: avena sativa kernel extract, colloidal oatmeal.

The following ingredients in this product are especially good for supporting the skin barrier and helping with the hydration level: avena sativa kernel extract, colloidal oatmeal
