StriVectin Instant Moisture Repair claims that losing moisture in your skin is like losing youth. The skin looks deflated and limp, more prone to the signs of the aging process – wrinkles, fine lines, bags, et cetera. This cream, they say, works instantly to hydrate the skin now, and then goes deeper to keep the skin moisturized later. It infuses water into the layers of the skin, making the skin appear young and full. Studies showed that the overall moisture in the skin increased by 30% within an hour of applying this cream. We are interested in seeing that the ingredients are.

What do these ingredients mean?
Osmolytes are contained in this product. Little is known about these compounds, only that they aid in osmosis and promote cell fluid balance. This is the agent that StriVectin claims is responsible for the layer by layer moisture that the product promised. There are also peptides. Peptides are a good ingredient for anti-aging because they stimulate collagen production, reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
We found that this product has the potential to be a very effective moisturizer. We would recommend it.
