Product summary

Judging from the ingredient list, "Tatcha - Indigo Soothing Hand Cream - Japanese Hand Cream | Tatcha" works well for improving skin hydration To work well, any moisturizer needs to include a combination of water-binding and emollient ingredients. Tatcha - Indigo Soothing Hand Cream - Japanese Hand Cream | Tatcha ticks this box. Algae extract, glycerin and inositol in this product (humectants) attract water molecules to the upper layer of the skin (the water comes from the outside air or from the deeper layers of the skin if the air is dry). Petrolatum, algae extract, myristyl myristate, squalane and cyclopentasiloxane 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.
