In Nigeria, Geek & Gorgeous Hydration Station 50ml
A refreshing, light gel cream textured moisturiser that goes beyond the basics, as it not only hydrates, but also protects and soothes the skin. A medium-amount of 5% Glycerin is enhanced by hydrators working in synergy with glycerin: a new-generation molecule called Isosorbide Dicaprylate and a sugar trio, trade named Aquaxyl, help the transportation of glycerin throughout the epidermis (by upregulating Aquaporin-3) and strengthen the skin barrier by stimulating the skin’s own ceramide production.
The 1% Ectoin in the formula hydrates & soothes the skin, while it also protects from all kinds of environmental stress, such as pollution, oxidative stress, blue & visible light. A good dose of two classic calming ingredients, Allantoin and Bisabolol further enhance the soothing ability of Hydration Station.
4.5-5.5 pH, 5% Glycerin, 1% Ectoin
Who is it for?
Pretty much anyone who is looking for a lightweight, soothing gel-cream for their normal, combination or oily skin. We especially recommend it if regular moisturisers tend to break you out, or you have a skin issue related to Malassezia fungi (malassezia folliculitis, aka fungal acne or seborrheic dermatitis).
Glycerin – A natural, water-binding moisturizer that’s also in our skin. It is the gold standard, most proven humectant that goes beyond simple hydration. It keeps the skin lipids between our skin cells in a healthy (liquid crystal) state, protects against irritation, and helps to restore the barrier. 5% of Glycerin counts as a medium amount, ideal for combination-oily skin.
Ectoin – An amazing, all-around skin protectant. This well-researched, multi-functional active has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, pollution & light protecting, skin hydrating, barrier repairing as well as anti-aging properties.
Isosorbide Dicaprylate – A modern skin hydrator and barrier builder molecule that works particularly well with Glycerin. It is known to upregulate Aquaporin-3, the important water & glycerin channels in the epidermis.
Xylitylglucoside + Anhydroxylitol + Xylitol – A sugar based humectant trio that works in synergy with glycerin to increase the skin’s water-binding capacity and strengthen the skin barrier.
Bisabolol + Allantoin – Two classic skincare ingredients known for their skin soothing abilities.
