The famous "urea moisturizer" created by f.c. himself! This product underwent several dozen formulations before its current iteration.
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 a multi-functional ingredient with the ability to hydrate and mildly exfoliate. It's so effective as a hydrator, in fact, that it outperforms vaseline in some studies. (1)

Other key features!
- Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride: enhances skin's softness and hydration while providing a silky, non-greasy feel. Our Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride is meticulously sourced and contains no trace amount of C12-24 fatty acids, enhancing its microbial potency against Malassezia, a microorganism linked to acne and "fungal acne." (2)
- Hyaluronic acid: a moisture-binding powerhouse that can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water, delivering unparalleled hydration. By forming a protective barrier, it maintains optimal moisture levels and supports natural wound healing. This makes it a multi-benefit ingredient that enhances skin plumpness, radiance, and overall health, and is suitable for all skin types.
- Glycerin: a natural humectant, known for its ability to attract and lock in moisture, keeping skin soft and supple. It works synergistically with urea to create a "skin-smoothing" effect and boost hydration. (3)
- Allantoin: has soothing properties, stabilizes urea, and promotes skin softness and healing. Recognized for its ability to form a protective barrier, aid in retaining moisture, and help alleviate minor irritations. Gentle and nurturing for the skin.
- Dimethicone: creates a breathable protective barrier on the skin, locking in moisture and enhancing moisturization without a greasy feel. Our dimethicone was carefully crafted to offer smooth texture and stability for a luxurious and comfortable experience.
This moisturizer is MAGIC! I live in SD, USA and it is dryyyy AF in the winter! I've tried many moisturizers. Most broke me out or caused a fungal reaction. No moisturizer, until this tube of magic!, could keep the dry away AND not break me out NOR cause a reaction. This moisturizer is literally magic.
Great moisturizer for any skin
Wish it came with more product or a bigger size offering since I used it all in a month. Other than that very moisturizing and great!
I’m a total sucker for the creamy moisturizers in the blue jars with the gold tops. Any expensive French brand actually. But my skin hates them. Fungal acne that even my Derm didn’t know what to give me to fix. I was miserable and went down a full rabbit hole trying to find something that wouldn’t cause me to break out. After finding Malezia I won’t even walk into Sephora or Ulta and I gave away all my French creams. This is by far the best skincare brand out there and it’s affordable for everyone. And bonus points for sustainability and small biz.
I’ve tried a lot of moisturizers, but they never work for me, but what I love about this moisturizer is the ingredients list is really small, which is amazing and the moisturizer itself is very hydrating not too thick, but not too thin
the only thing I would change is the packaging, but the packaging isn’t even that bad and I think it’s just a Me problem
I live in the Eastern part of Washington state where it gets REALLY dry and my skin had been pretty dehydrated. On top of that, my dermo started me on tretinoin so I went ahead and bought this moisturizer because I trust FC and have been following his blog for years now. I’m so happy that I finally bought this because it has been a lifesaver. My skin feels like it’s finally getting back to normal and my dry spots are starting to heal. I wear this both day and night and I honestly don’t NEED to wear any other hydrating serum along with this unless I just want to. If you’re thinking of getting this, please do! It’s a great product and has surprisingly replaced my Hada Labo perfect gel moisturizer which I have used for years now.
Love the moisturizer. It’s so lightweight and it just WORKS.
I've been purchasing this product since it came out! As long as I apply it every time I get my skin wet, and I use my active once a week, I honestly don't get serious seborrheic dermatitis break-outs anymore! Occasionally I'll get rough or itchy patches because I fall down on my routine, but then I get back into my rhythm and they never develop any further than that. My face looks and feels so much better! Thank you!
Lightweight moisturizer perfection
Forget hiphop, FC you saved my life!! This is very literally the only moisturizer I can use that 1. actually moisturizes and hydrates my skin 2. doesn't make me break out 3. doesn't cause itchiness or redness. It is a godsend. I put a dollop on my palm after I use the Hyaluronic Acid Cleanser, and massage/rub it is gently for 60 seconds and my skin is perfect for the rest of the day. Please never ever change this recipe and never stop selling your products!
