Frustrated with dry skin that you just can't seem to fix? You don't have to be. Once you understand the causes for dry skin, the solution is actually quite simple. Let us explain...
A lack of oil production and genetics. If your skin lacks oil production, it will also lack moisture. This is because your skin’s sebum, which contains lipids, helps seal in moisture.
Dry climate or environment. If you live in a dry climate, it’s likely your skin’s moisture is being depleted. Tip: A humidifier can help add moisture to your indoor living spaces, improving skin’s moisture retention.
Acne medications and retinol. These products can dry out skin. If you’re using them and experiencing dry skin, we recommend consulting with your dermatologist to see if you can get a more gentle prescription or if you can reduce treatments.
Hard water or long, hot showers. Hot water strips moisture from skin. Try lukewarm water instead.
Certain ingredients like sulfates and fragrance. These ingredients can irritate and dry out skin, so we recommend avoiding them completely.
Let's summarize that info above: natural oil is the key to moist skin. Water and harsh additives are the big problems. It's simple enough, which means for us, the solution was simple too: a truly clean moisturizer with all-natural ingredients and no added water or harsh chemicals, with the goal of supporting your skin's oil production.
Petitgrain Moisturizer IS:
Rich in lipids (i.e. healthy fats)
to help build and replenish the skin’s barrier and balance skin’s sebum (oil) production.
Since water dries out your skin, the #1 ingredient we use in the Petigrain Moisturizer is ethically sourced shea butter, an emollient and skin "superfood" that captures your skin's natural moisture to hydrate, condition and support skin elasticity.
