She cute.... and long awaited. The infamous "urea moisturizer" created by f.c. himself! This product underwent several dozen formulations before its current iteration. *Cue this isn't my final form meme. 😏
Its star ingredient is urea, a molecule found in the skin's natural moisturizing factor (NMF) that plays an integral role in improving skin barrier function.
Urea is one of those magical unicorn ingredients with the ability to both hydrate AND mildly exfoliate. It's so effective as a hydrator, in fact, that it outperforms vaseline in some studies. (1)
For more information about all things urea, please see our blog post on Simple Skincare Science.
Other key features!
- Glycerin: works synergistically with urea for added hydration and smoothing effect. (2)
- Dimethicone: creates a protective barrier and locks in moisture.
- Hyaluronic acid: hydrates skin by attracting 1000 times its weight in water.
- Allantoin: skin-soothing and stabilizes urea.
- Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride: an emollient that softens skin. It took us months to find, but we're happy to report that our caprylic/capric triglyceride is as pure as it gets and contains no trace amount of C12-24 fatty acids :)
INCI: Water, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Urea, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Sodium Polyacrylate, Cyclopentasiloxane, Trideceth-6, PEG/PPG-18/18 Dimethicone, Phenoxyethanol, Allantoin, Hyaluronic Acid, Ethylhexylglycerin
76 years old and I have acne since I was 21. My dermatologist told me I was just going to deal with because as I got older, I would still have it. I went through every treatment available with no startlingly changes. I’ve been using these products for two weeks and my best friend came over yesterday and asked me what I was doing as my skin looked good! Unbelievable, 2 weeks!! I still have some bumps but no inflamed skin. Thank you for this miracle!
For the longest time I thought I had acne but it turns out it’s dermatitis. This stuff is awesome and helps keep my skin looking better than it has in years. It’s lightweight and absorbs quickly.
didn't do anything for my skin. very expensive when you factor in the shipping(from Canada). the eucerin face repair 5% urea cream was wayy better. cleared all my bumps and dehydration. go for a more trusted brand guys, trust me
i have extremely sensitive skin + eczema, living in a dry climate i struggle trying so many different products and can be skeptical but now i cant live without this moisturizer. ive been using malezia for over a year now, tried to even go back to cerave but switched right back because nothing is as good as this. calms my redness, dryness, prevents flaking and is so soothing <3 forever my one and only that i even came to leave a review, which i never do.
This moisturizer made my skin soft, it goes on light, doesn't feel thick on my face, and helped my oily skin not feel greasy.
I saw this brand in a random advertisement... but was familiar with the ingredients so thought I would give it a try. I am SO glad I did. The acne treatment is the best I have ever tried. Blemishes are gone within a day or so. The moisturizer is absolutely fabulous. It is so soft and has a smoothing effect on my skin. It does not clog pores nor does it cause irritation. I have already ordered an additional tube of each (after my original order) and will be keeping these products on hand for daily use.
I’ve loved the moisturizer and benzoyl peroxide cream! Thank y’all so much. I don’t have my skin yet where it needs to be but I have faith in these products. Also this is a must for everyone with skincare issues— read the simple science website !
Their moisturizer gave me an allergic reaction and they won’t accept returns! For an online company it’s pretty bad customer service, I’ve never experienced purchasing a skincare product from a company and not being able to return it if I had an issue with the product. I highly suggest looking elsewhere for any product unless you know it 100% works for you, otherwise you’re just giving them your money for nothing. This company clearly only cares about making a profit and not the well being of the customers purchasing from them.
Hello Bridget, your comments are a bit misleading so we want to clarify a few things. First of all, here is the message you sent our support team:
“Hi, I recently purchased this moisturizer and it gave me an allergic reaction. My order number is #48323. I think I already threw away the box, is there anyway I can still return the product?”
As stated in our FAQ, we cannot accept returns on opened products. Doing so would be extremely unhygienic and go against cGMP practices. Secondly, you stated in your email you threw the product away. How would you return the product if you no longer have it?
Regarding just “giving money for nothing,” you could have easily requested a refund instead, and we would be happy to provide you one. Your e-mail however, was not very clear and never outlined that request. To receive a refund, we recommend emailing our customer care team with that info.
A bout of shingles attacked my liver and left me with some awful skin issues. I have rosacea and treat it off and on - with some success - with Soolantra. Unfortunately my insurance plan changed so the $618 per tube of Soolantra is no longer a treatment option. I was desperate to find relief from my liver induced skin issues - pustules, redness, puffiness, and patchiness. While surfing on the web I saw a testimonial for Malezia and figured I had nothing to lose. The product is so reasonably priced. I ordered the BP and the moisturizer. Now less than 3 weeks later, my face is a miracle! NO pustules! NO puffiness! Still a little redness and patchiness. But my skin is SO smooth, a little makeup evens it all out. I don’t have to hide behind my long hair or sunglasses or baseball hats. I have a good feeling that continued use of Malezia will further reduce the redness and patchiness. I really can’t believe how effective these products have been for me. It’s like a miracle. I’ve got my own inventory of product - I don’t *ever* want to run out!
I recently had a break out of fungal acne and this product and their benzoyl peroxide have really saved my skin and help me maintain it. Will definitely repurchase!
