Our Approach to Designing Moisturizers
Hydrate, nourish and protect. Every Bella Des moisturizer is built on the foundation of these three principals. By varying the levels of hydrating, nourishing and protective ingredients, we have created a range of moisturizers from light to intensive that suit the specific needs of different types of skin.
Hydrate Skin needs water to be healthy and look good. Dry skin is starving for water. Glycerin and sodium lactate are excellent hydrators because they bind to water and hold it in your skin. They are both key ingredients in our body moisturizers. Protein is added for more intensive hydration in products designed for very dry skin.
Nourish Vitamin E, allantoin, and niacinamide nourish skin and help it heal and repair. They are so good for everyone’s skin that we have put them in every body moisturizer. We also add other specific natural nutrients, like herbal extracts, based on the product’s intended use.
Protect Healthy skin has a protective barrier that protects against moisture loss and toxin entry. Dry skin has a “leaky” protective barrier. The oils in our moisturizers help repair skin’s barrier so it can retain the water and nutrients it needs to be healthy. We use lighter oils to absorb quickly and rich butters to linger on skin for more intensive moisturization.
