A moisturiser should contain emollients that work to moisturise the skin by increasing the amount of water held in the stratum corneum. Depending on the ingredients of the emollients, they work either by occlusion, trapping moisture into the skin thereby slowing the evaporation of water, or in an active way by drawing moisture into the stratum corneum. All skin moisturisers should contain an ingredient with emollient properties to ensure intensive moisture balance is maintained and in turn the skins protective barrier is restored.
