Overview

How moisturizing is this?

Quite moisturizing. Pacifica After Sun Body Spray Coconut Vanilla has a moisturizing rating of 4.9 out of 10.

Is it more humectant or occlusive?

Purely humectant. It has a very high Humectancy of 9.8 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.

What else is good about it?

 Pacifica After Sun Body Spray Coconut Vanilla 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.
