These both types of ingredients are essentials for improving the skin hydration and keeping the skin barrier healthy.

Emollients in this formulation (cocos nucifera fruit extract, vitis vinifera seed oil, butyrospermum parkii butter, caprylic/capric triglyceride and cocos nucifera oil) help to reduce the moisture loss from the skin.
