Product summary

"StriVectin - Re-Quench Water Cream" has a good moisturizing formula. To work well, any moisturizer needs to include a combination of water-binding and emollient ingredients. StriVectin - Re-Quench Water Cream ticks this box. Humectants in this product (betaine, fructooligosaccharides, glycerin, hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid and saccharide isomerate) help to increase the water content in the upper layer of the skin. (These ingredients do so by "capturing" water molecules from the outside air or from within the deeper layers of the skin). Isosorbide dicaprylate, dimethicone, caprylyl glycol and ethylhexyl isononanoate in this product help decrease the water evoporation from the skin, so that it stays hydrated for longer. These ingredients also soften the skin and take away the feeling of tightness and dryness.
