Moisture Balance Restorative Night Crème provides overnight rejuvenation for environmentally stressed or fatigued skin that looks older than it should. It is an ultra-rich (but non-greasy) liposome complex, designed to work while your skin is its most relaxed and receptive.
Mature skin and environmentally stressed skin need extra moisturizing attention at night. Moisture Balance Restorative Night Crème is formulated with a higher concentration of humectants, and special lipids that strengthen cells' defenses as you sleep. (See Best Defense Facial Moisturizer for a definition of humectants and lipids.)
In addition to Saccharide Isomerate (a humectant that holds moisture in low humidity), Moisture Balance Restorative Night Crème contains Sodium PCA (a moisture-holding amino acid that occurs naturally in the body), Tocopheryl Linoleate (a long-lasting moisturizer), and Sodium Hyaluronate, one of the body's most important moisturizing agents, present in the living part of the skin. Sodium Hyaluronate infuses hundreds of times its weight in water into dry skin cells, more than any other material known to science.
In addition to Sphingolipids, which are present in the skin, Moisture Balance Restorative Night Crème contains several natural vegetable lipids, which simulate the body's vital oils. These include avocado oil, jojoba oil, shea butter, and evening primrose oil. Evening primrose is rich in polyunsaturates, a critical component of the skin's natural lipid protection against moisture loss. These ingredients work overnight to help your skin strengthen its lipid barrier, while they soften and condition your skin.
Moisture Balance Restorative Night Crème also contains Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), essential to the development of healthy skin. It is non-comedogenic (won't clog skin pores), and is dermatologist tested and approved.
