"With Cocoa Butter, a rich, natural moisturizer that leaves skin soft and silky, transforming even the roughest, driest areas into buttery soft skin, and Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and imperfections on the skin, giving a more even and toned appearance, this unique formula melts into skin on contact, creating a protective moisture barrier that locks in moisture."

WIMJ summary

This product can help soften the skin and reduce its moisture loss with emollients and occlusives: dimethicone, isopropyl myristate.

Keep in mind that this product does not contain effective ingredients to attract water to the upper layer of the skin. This is why an additional product with humectants like glycerin or hyaluronic acid can be helpful (apply it before this product for the best results).

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