WHAT’S NEW AND IMPROVED
Imagine a moisturizer that not only understands your skin but also the conditions it experiences. In today’s fast-paced world, we are on the go for longer hours and exposed to many climate changes. Whether it is harsh weather, dry or humid, indoors or out, new hydration technologies in Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief allow skin to adapt and adjust to these varying changes. Skin experiences a new level of hydration from the very first application and this moisture continues on throughout the day or night. This lightweight gel dramatically improves skin’s natural moisture retention ability for longer lasting hydration. It addresses the cause and effects of skin dehydration, penetrating deeper into the stratum corneum with a quick and faster release of prolonged moisturization.

WHAT MAKES IT WORK
Trehalose and Sorbitol are sugar derived ingredients that penetrate deep into the stratum corneum to help maximize the skin’s natural ability to attract moisture from the environment, even during drastic changes in temperature and humidity. Both ingredients counter the osmotic shock effect, when skin is dehydrated due to a moisture imbalance. Skin’s natural moisture system is improved.
Thermus Thermophillus Ferment helps skin withstand the change in indoor and outdoor temperatures and retain and bind moisture to maintain skin integrity. This key ingredient is water-binding and acts as a protective “coat” to defend the skin against fluctuations in changing humidity conditions that affect moisture levels. Coupled with the trehalose and sorbitol, it allows the skin to adjust to shifts in humidity so that moisture levels are optimally maintained.
In skin, hyaluronic acid is a jelly-like substance that fills the spaces between the skin’s essential support structures and is known to hydrate the skin by holding in water and act as a cushioning and lubricating agent against damage. These small Hyaluronic Acid Fragments effectively penetrate the epidermis to provide a more potent water retention capacity, creating a “moisture reservoir” to continually bind water molecules.
This new botanical blend of Betula Alba Extract and Lady’s Thistle (Silybum Marianum) Fruit Extract improves skin’s natural moisture retention ability by helping to prevent the loss of skin’s natural hyaluronic acid and improving skin’s strength. Improvement in moisture maintenance results in skin that locks in and holds onto hydration better and longer.
Hydroxyethyl Urea, a new potent moisturizing agent, coupled with the strong humectant, Glycerin, synergistically enhances immediate and prolonged hydration. Hydroxyethyl urea diffuses into the stratum corneum to intensely hydrate it, leaving it comfortable and supple while glycerin boosts the skin’s ability to extract water from the air, extending moisturization.
Activated (+/-) Water made with Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Water is specially charged water that delivers intense hydration by increasing skin’s affinity to water. The delivery of moisture is maximized and maintained at equilibrium. Infused aloe provides soothing and calming benefits.
Tocopheryl Acetate, Green Tea and Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate form a potent blend of antioxidants that helps deliver free radical protection from environmental stress and deters the effects of dehydration.
Liposomes are a delivery system made of hydrogenated lecithin, a composition that mimics the natural lipids found in the skin. Bursts of Trehalose and Tocopheryl Acetate are released to replenish the skin’s barrier to lock in moisture.
Dimethicone is a highly recognized skin conditioner that helps maintain surface hydration. It provides slip and cushion for an effortless application.
Suitable for all skin types, Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief can be used as often as needed all over the face. It can be used as a facial moisturizer twice a day, as a moisture enhancer applied over regular moisturizer or as a midday moisturizer applied over makeup or moisturizer. Tap on face when using it over other products. It can also be used as a 5-minute facial mask, spread liberally on clean skin then either blotted off with a tissue or gently massaged into skin for added moisture.
