What is a Moisturizer?

Moisturizer is a skincare cosmetic product that protects, hydrates and moisturizes skin. They work to make skin soft and smooth.

The moisturizer acts the same way sebum produced by skin works. It performs all the same functions, but with so much dirt and pollution, sebum becomes insufficient for properly moisturizing the skin, which is why moisturizers are added in skincare routines.

Below are some natural ingredients that should be a part of the moisturizer you apply. Read labels before buying to make sure you choose the best daily moisturizer.

It is the base of the moisturizer and helps keep all other ingredients mixed homogeneously.

Humectants

Agents such as urea and glycerin attract moisture from the environment and keep it locked it to prevent skin from getting dehydrated.

Emollients

Petrolatum and mineral oils lubricate dry and dehydrated skin and fill the gaps between cells and skin. They are responsible for softening skin.

Occlusive

They role of occlusive agents is to prevent the water from evaporating from the moisturizer and the skin once applied.

Natural fragrances

The ingredients of a moisturizer do not have a good odor. Natural fragrances are added to make the product smell pleasant.

Natural preservatives

These are added to make sure that the moisturizer stays safe and bacteria-free during application as water-based products are prone to bacterial growth quickly.

Aloe vera and licorice root are added to produce a fresh and soothing feeling when the moisturizer is applied. They also reduce irritation caused by dry and dehydrated skin.

What is a Face Moisturizer and the Difference Between a Face and Body Moisturizer?

A face moisturizer is slightly different from a body moisturizer. The main difference lies in the concentration of ingredients. Face moisturizers are formulated with a lesser concentration of ingredients and are mainly water based.

The reason behind this is that the facial skin is thin and the sensitive skin pores get clogged easily. That is why the concentration of the ingredients is kept low.

The water-base of the moisturizer helps to get absorbed easily and quickly through the thin skin layers. Moisturizers for the body have a higher concentration of ingredients as the skin of the rest of the body is thick and would require a lot of ingredients for proper and complete nourishment.
