Review

Results you may expect from using Pevonia Botanica RS2 Gentle Lotion:

Based on the ingredient analysis by CreamScan, these are the key benefits you can expect from using Pevonia Botanica RS2 Gentle Lotion:

  • Moderate moisturizing. It has a moisturizing rating of 5.0 out of 10.
  • Soothing: Pevonia Botanica RS2 Gentle Lotion contains a high concentration of soothing ingredients, which may help to reduce irritation and calm the skin.
  • Antioxidant protection.

How moisturizing is it?

Quite moisturizing: Pevonia Botanica RS2 Gentle Lotion has a moisturizing rating of 5.0 out of 10.

Is it more humectant or occlusive? It is purely humectant. It has zero occlusivity (we didn't find any occlusive ingredients on the ingredient list) and a maximum humectancy of 10 out of 10, primarily due to the high content of Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract (est. ≈6.0%), Sorbitol (est. ≈4.0%) and Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate (est. ≈2.0%).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.

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

Anti-wrinkle efficacy

According to CreamScan analysis, Pevonia Botanica RS2 Gentle Lotion has a zero anti-wrinkle rating.

It contains Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, an ingredient marketed as effective in reducing wrinkles. However, the studies supporting the anti-wrinkle claims of Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract provide insufficient evidence of its efficacy according to CreamScan Research Evaluation Standards. Therefore, this ingredient does 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 Pevonia Botanica RS2 Gentle Lotion is rich (> 3%) in antioxidants, specifically Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract (est. ≈6.0%).

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.

Skin soothing

Based on the ingredient list analysis, Pevonia Botanica RS2 Gentle Lotion is rich (> 5%) in soothing ingredients, particularly Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract (est. ≈6.0%), Anthemis Nobilis Flower Extract (est. ≈3.0%) and Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate (est. ≈2.0%).

When applied to the skin, compounds of soothing ingredients, such as triglycerides, phospholipids, fatty acids, phenolic compounds, and antioxidants, work together to soothe the skin through various mechanisms: reducing inflammation, promoting wound healing, repairing the skin barrier, and providing antimicrobial and antioxidant activities.

Ingredients explained

Water
Est. %80
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.
Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract
