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)

For more information about all things urea, please see our blog post on Simple Skincare Science.

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.

Love this product!
Just the right mix of moisturizing while not being too heavy. Doesn’t pill under my makeup either, which is obviously a fantastic thing.
The only note I’d have is about the packaging, I do find that the tube gets very pressurized during transport and you have to be careful when opening the first time because of this.
Have and will be buying again!

Everyday Moisturizer

I found this skincare brand when I was looking into fungal acne, after having a disappointing dermatologist appointment. I love the message and awareness this brand brings and their products are amazing. I have only tried the moisturizer but it is super hydrating and light at the same time i can't explain how much i love it. I recommended to try it if you are acne prone, fungal acne prone, or have dehydrated skin. Can't wait to try the other products :)


Amazing hydration and still super lightweight. Well done and is easy on my acne prone areas! A bit high price point for 1.7oz but worth it (: would love a 3oz under $50!

Half bottle full

I wanted to love Moisturizer but unfortunately, my experience was less than stellar. While the moisturizer itself was okay in terms of hydration, I was taken aback by the fact that the bottle was consistently only half full. It's frustrating to pay full price for a product and not receive the amount advertised.

Hello S.R.,

As stated on our FAQ, the tube is not half-full and accuratley reflects the net weight on the packaging. Please note we calibrate our pneumatic piston machines to dispense the exact amount stated, and they have an accuracy of 1-2%. We also periodically check them throughout the days we fill to ensure they’re working properly.

Per our aluminum tube manufacturer’s guidelines, a tube that contains 50 grams of product should have a length of approximately 5 inches — this is to allow enough room for two folds during crimping. If the tubes were filled any more than they currently are, product would leak from the top end during the first fold.

You can always verify the weight is as advertised by using a scale if there is one available. Thank you! :)

Moisturizer review

I found this brand when looking up information on fungal acne. While I don’t have fungal acne I suspect that a lot of things that can feed fungal acne also cause me to break out. So I decided to use fungal acne safe products as a way to cut down on ingredients. It has worked well and my breakouts have significantly decreased. This moisturizer has become a holy grail for me. I have very sensitive, acne-prone skin, that is also dry. So many moisturizer break me out or are too thin to provide much moisture. This moisturizer is lightweight and moisturizing at the same time. I have already ordered extras. It works better for me than the moisturizers I have paid 10x the price for.

My every day moisturizer

I live in a dry climate and this product still helps my skin feel lubricated without using heavier creams. I think it provides a youthful plump and glow. I use it on my chest and neck as well.

Feeling confident for the first time in a while!

Give yourself and this wonderful brand time to work! I have noticed I still get the occasional monthly breakout and probably will continue to do so (due to hormones), but I am so damn happy with my skin. I have not “completely” cleared out yet, but I consider this absolutelyyyyy clear.
I have been using the complete Malezia line (5 products) for about 3 months and I am so incredibly delighted.
After lots and lots of searching, crying and wanting to rip my skin off my face, I found f.c.’s blog and after implementing LOTS of dietary changes, some cod oil and using Malezia every single day without fail, I feel the same as when I was 17 and I could look in a mirror without crying.
Thank you team for your hard work and your dedication!!! I do hope you all know how heavily appreciated you are!!
You have made me feel like myself again and no amount of “thank you” will ever cover that but still, THANK YOU❤️

So far so good!

The struggle is real with fungal acne, especially when finding a moisturizer since almost everything else has oils, and other ingredients that trigger a huge breakout for me….this is light, smells good, and moisturizes too. I’m telling everyone I know about it, including my derm!

Burning and bumps

This is going to be long and I want to excuse my English as it's my third language. I've had FA on both sides of my nose, tiny itchy bumps for 3 years. They came and went and the rest of my skin was flawless. But since a few months, I struggled with more bumps on both sides of my cheeks and my chin. I took a test and turns out, I have very little protective and immunomodulating bacteria in my gut. So the Malassezia on my skin could be bc of that. I found f.c.'s blog, it helped me a lot and I was excited to try the Malezia products. I'm from Germany and the moisturizer and gel cost a lot, unfortunately, but I get it and support small businesses. I did a patch test first and had no bad reactions, I was very happy. So I applied the moisturizer first and the gel over it at night, did the same routine the next night and then in the morning for the first time. The same day, I cleansed my face and applied the moisturizer, but for the first time both sides of my nose started to burn and became red very quickly. I still applied the gel and went to bed but after 15mins I cleansed my face and did my usual routine. The next day, I still woke up with tiny bumps on both sides of my face and the area around my nose is now red. I again did my usual routine to calm my skin down. Just a FA safe hydrating serum and niacinamide serum that don't trigger the Malassezia and I've used for years. I'm very confused and so wanted the products to work the same way they did for a lot of people here. I don't get what happened, why it started burning after I re-applied the moisturizer. My skin normally wouldn't react that way. I mean, I had both products on my face the entire day. I never had such a bad reaction on any skincare product. I would be happy if you could tell me if I did something wrong. Or if someone had a similar reaction. I first thought that it was the phenoxyethanol in the moisturizer, but now I think it's the BP. I put pictures from the day before I had the bad reactions and the day after (which is today).

Hello E.Y.,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and sharing your experience with us. We appreciate your support and are glad to hear that our blog has been helpful for you. However, we are sorry to hear about the negative experience you had with our moisturizer and gel.

As mentioned in our regimen guide, we do not recommend using additional actives or products with the Malezia regimen as they can be contraindicated and may negatively impact the results.

Based on your review, it seems that you may have used our acne treatment gel too aggressively. Your skincare routine should never be irritating, and pushing past the point of discomfort is not beneficial for your skin. Given this, we recommend starting with contact therapy and taking a less is more approach.

Please reach out to our customer care team, so we can help you troubleshoot your skincare routine. They would be more than happy to provide more tips and specialized support with your regimen. Thank you!
