Sufficient water content in the stratum corneum is the prerequisite for healthy, appealing and non-irritated skin. The most effective strategies to reduce water loss are improving the skin’s barrier function and enhancing the skin’s water-holding capacity.
Hydro-Gain is Lipoid Kosmetik’s powerful,100% natural, COSMOS-approved moisturizing cocktail that strives for optimal water retention. Hydro-Gain combines moisturizing lipophilic extracts from birch bark and barbary fig oil with regenerating hydrogenated lecithin. Based on this unique combination of active substances, Hydro-Gain strengthens the skin barrier, improves water retention, provides short- and long-term moisturization and shows deep-down hydration efficacy.
In essence, Hydro-Gain simultaneously improves both, the tightness of the lipid- and protein-based permeability barrier as well as the amount of water-binding molecules, and thereby minimizes water loss and increases skin hydration. This holistic approach to overcome dry skin makes Hydro-Gain the idea ingredient for innovative moisturizers, said the company.
