How moisturizing is it? Slightly moisturizing. Credentials Glycolic Facial Lotion has a moisturizing rating of 2.4 out of 10.
Is it more humectant or occlusive? Purely humectant. It has a moderate Humectancy of 4.8 out of 10 and zero Occlusivity (we didn't find any occlusives 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.
