Hydration and Moisturization have similar meanings, but when it comes to skincare...think "sisters not twins."

Don't worry, we'll make it make sense.

Hydration

Is the process of getting water into your skin, which is done with ingredients called humectants like Hyaluronic Acid + Glycerin

Moisturization

Is the process of keeping that water in your skin. Ingredients like emollients + oils work to lock that moisture in.

GOOD NEWS! Most of our products work double duty to hydrate + moisturize your skin.
