Product summary

Based on the ingredients included, "The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA" works well for moisturizing the skin. The formulation is based on a combination of good humectants and emollients. Both are needed to increase the skin hydration level. Humectants in this product (urea, alanine, arginine, aspartic acid and fructose) 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). Emollients in this formulation (arginine, caprylic/capric triglyceride, cetyl alcohol, oleic acid and palmitic acid) help to reduce the moisture loss from the skin. They also soften the skin surface and relieve the feeling of dryness and tightness.

This product contains ingredients that could be beneficial, but their concentrations are too low in this formulation: vitamin e, stearic acid, lecithin and allantoin
