We believe that hydrated skin is healthy skin, and Quench fills that gap.
The skin contains between 15–20% water, but if this level drops, your skin quickly becomes dehydrated – characterised by a rough texture, dryness, flakiness, and fine lines; inflammation may also be present, which can impair both the acid mantle and protective barrier function, which is why keeping your skin hydrated is vitally important.
Our skin has a Natural Moisturising Factor (NMF), made up of urea, lactic acid, pyrrolidone carboxylic acid (sodium PCA), hyaluronic acid, and Lipids all of which can deplete as a result of trauma or ageing. When this occurs, surface dehydration becomes apparent. Humectants are compounds that attract and bind water; they help hydrate your skin by drawing water from the deeper layers or the air when the humidity is greater than 75%
Quench has been intelligently formulated with these ingredients to replenish what is missing, clarifying, and boosting your skin’s natural processes to bring it back into balance; so it is less reactive – think of it as an intense treatment for dry and dehydrated skin. The addition of hibiscus and rose gently lightens and brightens, smoothing the appearance of fine lines for supple, younger-looking skin.
In addition to restoring hydration and moisture levels in your skin, Quench is formulated at the ideal pH of 5.7 to balance oily skin. Overproduction of oil on the surface of the skin can often result from dehydration.
Tip: Use alone or layer on top of your H2O to use as a luxurious, plumping, overnight mask. You’ll wake up to hydrated, bouncy, baby-soft skin.
