The clinically proven active ingredients in Hydr8 Body will hydrate skin where other creams simply cannot.
This is because in dry air, moisture from regular creams just evaporates in minutes following application. However, Hydr8 Body acts like an active moisture-magnet - actually binding water to skin cells keeping the moisture locked in and your skin feeling soft and supple.
Hydr8 Body locks water into the skin by connecting microscopic 'water-sponge molecules' to skin binding sites rather than just temporarily dampening cells, as ordinary moisturisers do. Unlike other moisture balance products, Hydr8 Body does not have a brief moisturising effect and does not inhibit the synthesis of lipid forming enzymes. In fact, Hydr8 Body actives are so effective, the binding is only released by the natural shedding of skin cells and not merely by washing.
Moisture Magnet's capacity for long-lasting moisture binding and retention makes Hydr8 Body effective in dry air under low relative humidities.
- Strong, long-lasting moisturisation
- Improves appearance of the skin after just 30 minutes of application
- Retains moisture, even in very dry conditions
- Contains anti-irritant properties
- Minimises itching and flakiness
- Works under a wide range of conditions that traditional moisturisers cannot
Hydr8 Body has been formulated with cocoa butter, offering excellent occlusive moisturising benefits - effectively 'sealing' skin to ensure that no additional moisture is lost and the skin is given adequate time to heal itself. Additionally, Medik8’s unique Moisture Magnet binds water to the epidermis, ensuring that skin stays hydrated and comfortable. It has a natural affinity with the skin's own moisture balance, ensuring that the epidermis' delicate equilibrium is not disrupted.
Skin must be kept hydrated to ensure that the body's barrier function is never compromised.
The graph on the left demonstrates the excellent performance of Hydr8 Body at low humidities when compared to known moisturising agents such as glycerin. Where Hydr8 Body really excels, though, is under difficult conditions, i.e. relative humidities of 20-50% and higher. It also moisturises more effectively for longer periods: in fact, it outperforms a host of occlusive barriers in comparative testing. So, with Hydr8 Body, moisture stays in the skin long after traditional moisturisers flash off.
