What Makes Our Must-Have Moisturiser So Deeply Hydrating

The Deep Hydration Moisture Cream deeply hydrates, soothes and softens thanks to its plethora of skin barrier supporting ingredients. Thoroughly researched with truck loads of clinical data to back them up, our formulator chose only the best, most universally tolerable components to create this cream. Let’s dive into why they were chosen.

What's in the Deep Hydration Moisture Cream


Ceramides are the main component of the skin barrier and an impaired skin barrier is usually associated with an insufficient amount of them. Did you know: Most cases of acne, blemishes and dermatitis corresponds to an insufficient level of ceramides - further strengthening the importance of using ceramides in your skincare.

You can’t turn a corner without hearing of the miraculous benefits of skin-repairing ceramides. To name a few of their benefits: they restore the skin barrier, lock in moisture, and reduce visible signs of ageing.

Ceramides are lipids (fat molecules) that naturally exist in your body and make up part of your skin barrier, so why do I need them in my skincare? Ceramide numbers start going down with age (or if we use too many actives!) and so supplementation via our skincare is essential. Using products rich in ceramides will ensure your skin barrier functions efficiently, increased hydration, skin is resilient, healthy, smooth and soft. 


Hyaluronic acid, as you know, holds 1,000 times its weight in water and helps retain moisture, making skin supple and smooth. What you might not know is that there are different kinds of Hyaluronic Acid, for example:

Zinc Hyaluronate - traditionally used to treat “hard-to-heal” wounds such as diabetic ulcers. Zinc Hyaluronate facilitates healing and demonstrates a reduction in the healing time of wounds.

Hyalorepair - a patented hyaluronic acid targeting skin barrier function and recovery.

Sodium Hyaluronate (HAbooster) - penetrates the skin to deliver hydration to deeper levels and signalling fibroblast and collagen production.



A superstar ingredient due to its multi-tasking nature: boosts production of skin barrier components such as ceramides, clinically proven to brighten, regulate sebum and assist in anti-ageing as well as reduce the appearance of pores. It also helps restore the surface of the skin through elevating hydration and moisture levels..


While Hyaluronic Acid might be the most buzz-worthy hydrating ingredient, Glycerin also does an excellent job of it too. Not as glamorous as HA, however it deserves just as much praise. In fact, ​​studies show that glycerin can penetrate the skin barrier and remain within the skin for continuous hydration for several days. Particularly effective to treat extreme dryness and repair skin elasticity.


A relatively unknown ingredient until recently, oat beta glucan is a beta glucan (a type of complex sugar) derived from oat. An excellent ingredient for sensitive and angry skin as it works twofold to:

  1. Soothe and calm irritation, helping minimise redness and inflammation, 
  2. As an effective anti-ageing ingredient to firm and plump fine lines and wrinkles. 

It also has antioxidant properties, helping protect the skin from further damage.


Once only popular in K-beauty, now it is becoming more popular around the world. Effectively soothes and moisturises the skin, can also help alleviate the skin’s response to active ingredients and is often included in formulas to help buffer any potential adverse effects. As with all the skin barrier supporting products, it is sensitive skin friendly.


Years ago, a rumour was spread that any ingredient ending in ‘ol’, was drying and bad for your skin. Not true! Pantheol attracts and retains moisture, which is essential for the skin barrier and that supple, bouncy skin we all crave. Panthenol also helps the skin retain this water, preventing TransEpidermal Water Loss (TEWL). A skin protectant with anti-inflammatory properties. It helps improve skin's hydration, firmness, and smooth appearance. Another calming, soothing ingredient it helps reduce red skin and inflammation.
