The term “skin-replenishing ingredients” refers to the substances that help keep skin looking and feeling healthy, smooth and soft.
When these elements of skin are damaged, water loss, flakiness, and inflexible, stiff, uncomfortable-feeling skin is the result.
These substances that keep skin intact are what we refer to as skin-replenishing ingredients. Antioxidants are one group of skin-replenishing ingredients but skin-replenishing ingredients also encompass an additional assortment of substances, such as ceramides, lecithin, glycerin, polysaccharides, hyaluronic acid, sodium hyaluronate, sodium PCA, amino acids, cholesterol, glycerol, phospholipids, glycosphingolipids, glycosaminoglycans, glycerides, fatty acids, and many, many more.
When a moisturizer contains a combination of these, it can help reinforce the skin’s natural ability to function normally, improve skin’s texture, fight environmental stress, and, along with antioxidants and restorative, improve dry skin with regular use.
