Do you use a Water-Based Cream or an Oil Based Cream?
Our Skins’ natural protective layer (the acid mantle) is an oil-based mixture of sebum, natural moisture factor, sweat, free fatty acids and ceramides to maintain suppleness and comfort whilst water-proofing the skin’s surface.
So why is it that most skincare ranges are either water-based or oil-based? Yet Dr Spiller Biocosmetic is neither.
Let’s Explore the Difference between Water Based, Oil Based and the Unique Hydratain® Formula from Dr Spiller
Your Creams Explained
Most skincare creams on the market are either water-based or oil-based. In this article, we will explain the difference between these creams
The water-based creams are light, easy to apply and feel good on the skin. However, these creams often require higher levels of chemicals such as emulsifiers and preservatives to stabilize them yet they generally do not maintain the skin’s hydration levels for long. In fact, studies have shown that the water starts to evaporate from the cream the instant it is applied to the skin. And within 30 minutes the majority of the moisture contained in the cream has evaporated.
Oil Based Cream:
Oil-based creams are scientifically proven to maintain moisture levels in the skin much longer. They have also been found to deliver active ingredients into the skin far more effectively than water-based creams. Oil-based creams are not very popular because they traditionally have a very high oil content (around 50%) This gives your skin an unpleasant heavy and greasy consistency.
Dr Spiller Hydratain®
Dr Spiller’s revolutionary new process combining the hydrating benefits of an oil-based cream with the lightweight feel of water-based cream. This unique HYDRATAIN® formula is essentially a combination of what’s best in both; a special molecule which forms a ‘net’ over your skin. This cream feels light and fresh, enabling it to breathe and at the same time penetrating your water-proof skin.
This cream provides long-lasting hydration and delivery of active ingredients and results in plump, younger-looking skin.
