Despite a lightweight, silky texture, this moisturizer contains enough alcohol to make it a problem for all skin types. Alcohol causes dryness and free-radical damage, and impairs healthy collagen production. Please see More Info for additional facts on why irritation is so bad for your skin.
Even without the alcohol, this is a lackluster formula that falls short of providing your skin with what it needs to look and act younger. The tiny amount of plant extracts (which do not have documented benefit for skin, but are not known to be harmful) will not remain stable due to the jar packaging. Check out More Info for details on why jar packaging is a problem.
- Silky, lightweight texture will make those with oily skin happy.
- Alcohol is the third ingredient, which is bad news for all skin types because alcohol causes irritation that hurts skin’s ability to look and act younger.
- Jar packaging won’t keep the plant extracts stable during use and also presents a hygiene issue because you dip your fingers into the jar each time you apply it.
- Lacks the range of state-of-the-art ingredients that all skin types need to improve and become healthier.
Irritation, whether you see it on the surface of your skin or not, causes inflammation, which impairs healing, damages collagen, and depletes the vital substances your skin needs to stay young. For this reason, it is best to minimize or eliminate as much as possible your exposure to known skin irritants, especially when there are brilliant formulas available that do not include these types of problematic ingredients.
Jar packaging is a problem because all plant extracts, vitamins, antioxidants, and other state-of-the-art ingredients break down in the presence of air, so once a jar is opened and lets the air in, these important ingredients begin to deteriorate. Jars also are unsanitary because you’re dipping your fingers into them with each use, adding bacteria, which further deteriorate the beneficial ingredients.
