The electrolytes in this quenching formula work with natural hydrators to draw the right amount of moisture into skin and hold it there. A blend of natural antioxidants, ceramides, B vitamins and prebiotic sugars work throughout skin’s uppermost layers, optimizing its ability to stay moisturized over time.

Mineral electrolytes calcium, potassium, and magnesium are linked with skin-identical PCA (pyrrolidone carboxylic acid, part of skin’s natural moisturizing factor), allowing them to work within skin’s water channels (aquaporins) to deliver vital hydrators like ceramides and glycerin. These enhanced minerals also train skin to maintain its moisture balance, strengthen its barrier, and create a healthier, more energized appearance.
Once or twice daily, apply a small amount to face and neck. For daytime, always follow with a sunscreen.
