Hydration Station Moisturiser 50ml
This refreshing, light gel cream textured moisturiser hydrates, protects and soothes the skin leaving it dewy, plump and healthy.
🤓 Geek info: It contains a medium-amount of 5% Glycerin which is enhanced by hydrators working in synergy with glycerin: a new-generation molecule called Isosorbide Dicaprylate and a sugar trio, named Aquaxyl, help the transportation of glycerin throughout the epidermis (by upregulating Aquaporin-3) and strengthen the skin barrier by stimulating the skin’s own ceramide production.
The 1% Ectoin in the formula hydrates and soothes the skin, while protecting from environmental stress; pollution, oxidative stress, blue & visible light.
The calming ingredients, Allantoin and Bisabolol enhance the soothing ability of the Hydration Station cream.
💡 Interesting fact: This moisturiser does not contain three very common ingredient groups that are found in almost all moisturisers: fatty alcohols, fatty acids and silicones. (There is nothing wrong with these ingredients) however there are some skin types that cannot tolerate them - that is why this moisturiser was created as it is difficult to find creams without these ingredients.
If you find that most “normal” moisturisers sensitize/give you pimples, or you have a skin issue related to Malassezia fungi (malassezia folliculitis, aka fungal acne or seborrheic dermatitis), Hydration Station can be your perfect day/ night cream!
Perfect for: anyone who is looking for a lightweight, soothing gel-cream for their normal, combination or oily skin. Recommend specifically for skin that regular moisturisers tend to cause break out, skin issues related to Malassezia fungi (malassezia folliculitis, aka fungal acne or seborrheic dermatitis)

Glycerin: A natural, water-binding moisturizer that’s also in our skin. It is the gold standard, most proven humectant that goes beyond simple hydration. It keeps the skin lipids between our skin cells in a healthy (liquid crystal) state, protects against irritation, and helps to restore the barrier. 5% of Glycerin counts as a medium amount, ideal for combination-oily skin.
Ectoin: An amazing, all-around skin protectant. This well-researched, multi-functional active has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, pollution & light protecting, skin hydrating, barrier repairing as well as anti-aging properties.
Isosorbide Dicaprylate: A modern skin hydrator and barrier builder molecule that works particularly well with Glycerin. It is known to upregulate Aquaporin-3, the important water & glycerin channels in the epidermis.
Xylitylglucoside + Anhydroxylitol + Xylitol: A sugar based humectant trio that works in synergy with glycerin to increase the skin’s water-binding capacity and strengthen the skin barrier.
Bisabolol + Allantoin: Two classic skincare ingredients known for their skin soothing abilities.
