Few beauty products start with a Nobel Prize but this humble moisturiser was inspired by the discovery of aquaporins: minute water-tunnels in the skin membrane that let moisture travel between cells. Enter gluco-glycerol,which is able to increase the number of aquaporin channels to distribute moisture more evenly throughout the skin. Skin is left smoother and more hydrated for up to 24 hours at a time.
Very much a cream/gel hybrid and such a contrast to the thick greasy creams that so many moisturisers seem to be. Made my skin look so much more alive and less sunken without make-up.
