Moisturisers are vital to every skin condition, and do more than just moisten dehydrated skin. Emollients (usually lipid substances) help lubricate skin whilst making it soft, pliable and smooth. Moisturisers also help to protect the skin’s natural defences against the environment while controlling moisture loss from the skin. This becomes more important as we age, when the Stratum Corneum’s protective lipid barrier layer may be compromised, or slower in replenishing itself.
Shanga has a moisturiser for every skin condition; from chronically dry and prematurely-ageing to skin with excess oil production and breakouts.
