Top Moisturizing Ingredients:

Ordinarily, dry skin isn't serious, but it can be uncomfortable and unsightly, turning plump cells into shriveled ones and creating fine lines and wrinkles. Serious dry skin conditions — an inherited group of disorders called ichthyosis can sometimes be disfiguring, causing psychological distress. Fortunately, most dry skin results from environmental factors that can be wholly or partially controlled. Moisturizing ingredients not only increase the skin's water content, but they also protect the skin and encourage an orderly desquamation (shedding) process that makes the skin appear more smooth. What ingredients should consumers look for to help maintain high moisture levels?

1. Sodium Hyaluronate

Sodium hyaluronate, also known as hyaluronic acid (HA), is a natural-occurring substance in our own bodies. Widely present in the human skin dermis and synovial fluid, HA has water retaining effect, lubrication and other important physiological functions. Since the beginning of 80s of 20 century, the excellent moisturizing function of HA has attracted wide attention from the international cosmetics industry. HA is regarded as a kind of ideal natural moisturizing and is widely used in cosmetics and made suitable for different skin types, climate and environment. Both low and high MW HA transfer to the skin and affect the fibroblast cells to promote HA synthesis and cell proliferation, which contribute to moisturizing the skin. As we age, however, it slows down its production, causing our skin to lose that plumped, youthful-looking appearance. HA is certainly one of the most buzzed about ingredients in skin care, often dubbed a hydration powerhouse thanks to its supernatural ability to hold 1000 times its weight in water.

In addition to its hydration benefits, incorporating products formulated with hyaluronic acid into our skin care routine can be useful to help combat the signs of aging skin. Couple hyaluronic with ingredients such as botanical butter, like mango butter, shea butter, and cupuacu butter to help retain the moisture.

2. Oat Beta-Glucan

Oat Beta-Glucan is a singularly remarkable complex carbohydrate isolated from the cell wall of oats that has a profound impact on wound healing. Throughout the ages, it has been viewed as possessing numerous health benefits including relieving dry, itchy and irritated skin (oat meal bath), moisturizing and soothing dry skin and soothing and minimizing the discomfort of sunburn. Oat Beta-glucan 1% liquid functions well as a moisturizing ingredient.

3. Aloe Vera extract

Aloe Vera extract contains amino acids, organic acid, polysaccharides and trace elements, which are components of natural moisturizing factor. With special hydrophilic interaction, Aloe Vera can absorb moisture from the air, so as to get a good moisturizing effect. Meanwhile, it has a good film reforming property when the large amounts of hydroxyl groups in its structure bonding with water. “Lock water” can be formed on the surface of the skin to prevent skin water loss and achieve lasting moisturizing effect.

4. Jojoba Oil. This helps to repair the skin’s protective barrier and is similar in nature to skin’s own natural oils.

5. Ceramides

Ceramides are long chains of skin lipids that are part of the skin's outer layers. For this reason, ceramides are vital for helping to maintain and reinforce the skin’s natural moisture barrier. Slathering your skin with a product formulated with ceramides may help ensure that water and hydration stay on skin’s surface and environmental irritants and pollutants stay off. The body does contain ceramides but the levels decrease as we age. Dry skin can be attributed to this loss. Ceramides in your skincare products will help to protect the skin barrier as well as attract moisture to it.

6. Glycolic Acid.

Glycolic Acid, an AHA, has the smallest molecular structure and can absorb deeper within the skin. This helps to dissolve surface dry skin cells to encourage a stronger, more intact protective barrier to allow the skin to retain moisture.

7. Green Tea Extract

Tea polyphenol has the effect of inhibiting the activity of hyaluronidase. Through inhibiting the activity of hyaluronidase, reducing degradation of hyaluronic acid, tea polyphenol ensures the content of hyaluronic acid in dermis, in order to improve the skin's moisture.

8. Vitamin C

Vitamin C is one of those vitamins that your body can’t create or store on its own but is essential for numerous functions. One of those functions is for the production of collagen, which helps to make the skin firm, flexible and healthy. Vitamin C is essential for collagen biosynthesis, while collagen is beneficial to skin structure and moisturizing. It has been proposed that vitamin C influences quantitative collagen synthesis in addition to stimulating qualitative changes in the collagen molecule. Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (SAP), Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (MAP), and L-Ascorbyl 2-Glucoside (AA2G) are naturally occurring water-soluble derivatives of Vitamin C. They are stable forms of Vitamin C, meaning they won’t oxidize and go bad within shelf life, making them preferable choices for cosmetic formulations.

9. Peptides.

These are used for anti-aging to smooth wrinkles and reduce the visual effects of aging. Peptides are a portion of larger protein molecules used in the body to communicate with and direct skin cells to behave in certain beneficial ways, such as producing more collagen or thickening the support structure of the skin, which are all essential for dry skin.

10. Vitamin E

Vitamin E is the most important fat-soluble antioxidant. Due to its anti-inflammatory effects on the skin, it is contained in many cosmetic products. It will improve the skin’s elasticity and suppleness. While it can be used on all skin types, it is especially beneficial to dry skin. D-alpha-Tocopheryl Acetate, a form of natural Vitamin E, can be used in cosmetics.
