The next most common ingredient is something called Glycerin . It is also a moisturizer and acts as a humectant, which means that it attracts water from the upper layers of the skin down into the deeper layers to restore the water levels to your skin. In summary, Petrolatum, Dimethicone and Glycerin, or similar closely related ingredients, form the primary foundation of most skin care products to which other compatible agents are added to perform different functions. Think of them as a vehicle to deliver other products to the skin. For example, almost all sunscreens contain these same three basic ingredients. This “skin care vehicle” also carries other products used in the battle against aging and wrinkling skin. “Antioxidants” have been proven to protect skin against photo damage and premature aging.
