Review

Results you may expect from using Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Moisture Cream:

Based on the ingredient analysis by CreamScan, these are the key benefits you can expect from using Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Moisture Cream:

  • Intense moisturizing. It has a moisturizing rating of 8.2 out of 10.
  • Antioxidant protection.

How moisturizing is it?

Intensely moisturizing: Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Moisture Cream has a moisturizing rating of 8.2 out of 10.

Is it more humectant or occlusive? This product has relatively comparable levels of humectancy and occlusivity: a very high humectancy of 8.2 out of 10, primarily due to the substantial concentration of Butylene Glycol (est. ≈6.0%), and a very high occlusivity of 8.3 out of 10, mainly due to the significant content of Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter (est. ≈9.0%) and Caprylic/Capric/Myristic/Stearic Triglyceride (est. ≈3.0%).

Please refer to the Ratings section below for details of the moisturizing rating calculation.

Anti-wrinkle efficacy

According to CreamScan analysis, Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Moisture Cream has a zero anti-wrinkle rating.

It contains some ingredients marketed as effective in reducing wrinkles, specifically Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Extract, Acetyl Glucosamine, Caffeine, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, and Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate. However, the studies supporting the anti-wrinkle claims of these ingredients provide insufficient evidence of efficacy according to CreamScan Research Evaluation Standards. Therefore, these ingredients do not generate the anti-wrinkle rating.

Please refer to the Ratings section below for details of the anti-wrinkle rating calculation.

Antioxidant benefits

We estimate that Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Moisture Cream is rich (> 3%) in antioxidants, specifically Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Extract (est. ≈0.3%), Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract (est. ≈0.3%), Citrus Grandis Peel Oil (est. ≈0.3%), and others.

A key benefit of antioxidants is their ability to reduce oxidative stress caused by free radicals and therefore prevent accelerated skin aging. Studies also show that antioxidants can protect against environmental damage such as UV radiation and pollution, and help reduce inflammation and skin redness.

Ingredients explained

Water
Est. %55
Function
Origin
The most used ingredient in skincare. Its concentration defines the product texture: rich creams may have about 50% of water while a light jelly about 90%. Water doesn’t moisturize the skin by itself and is used in skincare as a solvent for other ingredients.
Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter
Est. %9
Function
Origin
A semi-solid, buttery fat extracted from the seeds of the Shea tree that is a wonderful occlusive and emollient ingredient mainly comprised of fatty acids. Shea butter contains a large amount of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds.
Butylene Glycol
Est. %6
Function
Origin
A clear, colorless liquid humectant that draws moisture to the skin. The humectancy of butylene glycol, owed to its two hydroxyl groups, is quite considerable, although not as powerful as glycerin, which contains three hydroxyl groups.
Hydrogenated Polyisobutene
Est. %4
Function
Origin
A viscous liquid that makes a great oil base due to its smooth sensorial profile. It has emollient features, including good spreadability and little tack upon application. It also has the added benefit of being able to thicken products.
Caprylic/Capric/Myristic/Stearic Triglyceride
Est. %3
Function
Origin
Description is coming soon
Cetyl Alcohol
Est. %2.5
Function
Origin
A waxy solid fatty alcohol derived from palm oil. It is most commonly used as a co-emulsifier and affects the final aesthetic of the product, leaving a soft and silky feeling on the skin. Cetyl alcohol is also used as a viscosity controlling agent.
Ethylhexyl Stearate
Est. %2
Function
Origin
A palm-derived emollient ester with good lubricity that leaves a smooth after-feel on the skin.
Glyceryl Stearate
Est. %1.5
Function
Origin
An emollient and emulsifier typically derived from vegetable sources through a chemical reaction with glycerin. It provides stability, texture, and consistency to formulations. Its main function is to allow oil and water to mix.
PEG-40 Stearate
Est. %1.3
Function
Origin
This PEG, or polyethylene glycol, is excellent at emulsifying water and oil together to form oil-in-water emulsions. Due to its water-loving nature, PEG-40 stearate can also act as a cleansing agent.
Glycerin
Est. %1
Function
Origin

The most popular moisturizing ingredient in the world. It is a powerful humectant – cheap yet very effective.

Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Extract
Est. %0.3
Function
Origin
An antioxidant extract derived from olives. It contains promising anti-aging Oleuropein and prospective anti-pigment Cornoside.
Salvia Sclarea (Clary) Extract
