Moisturizing creams used to add water and soften the skin, have a limited action because the water applied will quickly evaporate, therefore the moisturizing effect will last for a short period of time.
MOST researchers have developed an ointment that uses the water (hydration) already in the skin by effectively retaining it on the outermost layer of the skin.
The prolonged self-hydrating action of the ointment helps preventing wrinkles by maintaining a constant moisture content and relaxing the skin.
A moisturizing cream is a product that contains a great amount of water and will provide water once applied. However, water that is applied form outside contributes very little to the hydrating process, in fact it does not bind with the skin structure and evaporates very quickly.
Our skin has already an abundant reservoir of water, our body biggest percentage element is water and the skin have an unlimited supply. Dry skin is not the result of lack of water but rather the inability of the skin to retain the water.
The concept of self-hydration from the MOST research
The skin hydration process is made up of two processes: the first one is the transfer of the water from the deeper layers of the skin to the outermost layer and the second is the retention of the water in the top layer.
For the first process MOST researchers are using a plant base polymers (polyglycerol) that are used by plants to carry the sap from the ground to the foliage. For the second process another polymer that retains the water slowing down the evaporation.
From the balance and synergy of these polymeric molecules was born the Emollient Ointment Extreme.
MOST Emollient Ointment Extreme
- Long lasting moisturizing action
- Non comedogenic (do not penetrate the skin) ingredients
- Maximum softening and relaxing of the skin
- Minimizing and prevention of wrinkles
Because Emollient Ointment Extreme does not contain water there is no need for preservatives, therefore leave intact the skin microbiota (the collection of microorganisms that live on our skin).
