How Emollients Work
Nature Republic’s Super Aqua Max Cream contain emollients that help skin retain moisture and protect itself from pathogens
1. The outer layer of your skin is made of dead skin cells called corneocytes that are linked together by proteins
2. Proteins that link corneocytes break down when air becomes too dry, weakening your skin’s barrier function
3. Emollients get beneath the skin’s surface and fill in the gaps left by missing proteins
4. As a result, your skin is able to retain more moisture, which makes it more flexible and feel softer
