Did you know there are three categories of moisturizers?

  1. Humectants absorb moisture to hydrate skin. (Example: glycerin).
  2. Occlusives lock moisture in the skin to keep it hydrated. (Example: petrolatum).
  3. Emollients fill in the spaces in the skin to create a smooth surface. (Example: grapeseed oil).
