What is a face cream made of? The basis of a face cream is always the same: water and lipids - i.e. fats and oils - as well as emulsifiers. There are also special active ingredients and care ingredients.
Emulsifiers are needed to permanently maintain the mixture of water and fat and to produce a cream with a uniform texture. The fats in the creams make the skin slightly water-repellent, inhibit the release of water (evaporation) through the skin and protect it from drying out. A good moisturizer makes use of vegetable fats as well Natural oils, such as avocado oil, buriti oil, sesame oil or rosehip oil which are rich in fatty acids, nutrients and vitamins. The herbal extracts contained also provide minerals, trace elements, antioxidants and secondary plant substances such as betaines and flavonoids.
