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
Highly recommend these products. The moisturizer is literally the only moisturizer I can use on my fave without breaking out. Definitely give their products a try!
I found this product through an article posted on MSN news where a woman wrote about problems she was having with her skin on her face. I noticed I had similar issues (fungal acne) and nothing else has worked for me. This product seems to have turned things around and really helps clear up my skin. I'm very grateful that this exists.
Honestly has been life changing for my skincare routine. I don’t have fungal acne but I do have very sensitive skin and this product has been perfect for keeping my skin clear and hydrated. Would absolutely recommend giving it a try, I use it at night and in the morning under my spf.
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 !
