Alyria’s HYDRATING COMPLEX blends petrolatum, shea butter and glycerin, all very effective moisturizers. It creates an invisible barrier against moisture loss to help replenish the skin's natural moisture and elasticity, eliminating the itchy, tight feeling of dehydrated skin.
The Experts Weigh In:
“A reduction in wrinkles and an improvement of skin suppleness [after shea butter application] was obtained for 75% of volunteers.” (Global Cosmetic Industry, April 1999)
“Topical application of petrolatum can help the skin’s outer layer recover from damage, reduce inflammation, and generally heal the skin.” (Acta Dermato-Venereologica, November- December 2000, p. 412-415)
“…presence of glycerin in the intercellular layer helps other skin lipids do their jobs better” (American Journal of Contact Dermatitis, September 2000, p. 165-169)
