Overview

How moisturizing is this?

Slightly moisturizing. Cellex-C Sensitive Skin Serum has a moisturizing rating of 0.5 out of 10.

Is it more humectant or occlusive?

This product is purely humectant, but with a low Humectancy of 1.0 out of 10. It has zero Occlusivity as we didn't find any occlusive ingredients on the ingredient list.
Tip: Studies suggest that humectants alone do not moisturize the skin. We recommend applying a product with some occlusive ingredients after the use of this one.

What else is good about it?

 Cellex-C Sensitive Skin Serum is rich in antioxidants. One of the many benefits of antioxidant ingredients is that they are believed to reduce the oxidative stress caused by free radicals, thus preventing accelerated skin aging.

Ingredients explained

Water
Est. %85.5
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.
Ascorbic Acid
Est. %7.5
Function
Origin
Also known as vitamin C, this extremely well-researched antioxidant is able to boost collagen production, prevent wrinkles, and treat pigmentation. It degrades easily when exposed to air and so requires careful packaging.
Acetyl Tyrosine
Est. %4
Function
Origin
Acetyl tyrosine is a derivative of the amino acid tyrosine. It is used as a tanning agent in skincare, helping pigment cells (melanosomes) to produce more dark skin pigment.
