Summary analysis Hydrabio Cream from Bioderma
In the formula I see too many silicones (and in a high proportion), an ingredient that is very present in moisturizers, but it does not really hydrate.
There are also a couple of irritating ingredients (one in a fairly high proportion) and an alcohol, something that does not benefit sensitive skin at all.
There are many emollients, but really hydrating actives like squalane, hyaluronic acid, or apple seed extract, are way down the list.
Be careful with salicylic acid, as it increases sensitivity to the sun and can cause irritation. So I recommend that you always use sunscreen, right after applying the cream.
It is true that you will notice a softer, more pleasant and comfortable skin, but everything is the work of silicones. Make no mistake, she won’t be really hydrated.
To hydrate from within, you must use moisturizing actives, not masking. One of the best is hyaluronic acid, present in this cream, but in too low a proportion to be noticed.
However, in Nezeni Cosmetics Collagen cream, Organic Silicon is present in a high concentration, and its effect is to help synthesize both collagen and hyaluronic acid. It is also a cream suitable for sensitive and dry skin. It does not have silicones, so its effect will be long-lasting.
