LOTION & CREAM vs SERUM & SALVE

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE!!

.

When people think “occlusive” they think breakouts and pimples …. 

.

Actually …. that’s somewhat true …. DEPENDING ON YOUR SKIN TYPE!!

.

Occlusive products specially formulated and dedicated to your skin type contain the necessary occlusive protection barrier for that skin type, like our Couxcoux Collections for oily, combination, sensitive, dry and damaged skin.

.

In this sense occlusive means protective and strong.

.

This protective layer keeps good things in the skin, releases bad things when needed, and keeps bad stuff from penetrating. Some level of occlusive barrier is absolutely necessary for most all skin types.

.

Conventional lotions & creams usually leave this protective occlusive barrier or, there’s not enough of it or, it’s in the product via a thin, watery, highly processed, unnatural, nutritionless oil containing residual hazardous chemicals …. Mostly, this is so you’re forced to use more of the product, more often.
.
Contemporary Moisturizers also often leave out the highly concentrated, active vitamins & minerals needed to replenish & repair skin OR, there’s too little of them to be effective OR the other ingredients are so dehydrating as to cancel out any moisturizing effects OR, the nutrition is dead (oxidized, processed, or inert due to their processing or the preservatives for the product itself).
.
Additionally, most conventional moisturizers (and many conventional serums) are blended with mostly WATER, tiny amounts of UNNATURAL oil and PERFUME. That’s it!!!  …. outside the ingredients needed to preserve, stabilize and emulsify the water.
.
All products containing water require a preservative. Most of them are considered hazardous and can be extremely harsh on skin!
.
ALL creams/lotions/moisturizers contain an oil and water blend. This requires, not only a preservative, but almost always highly processed, synthetic stabilizers and emulsifiers too, or the oil and water will separate in the container.
.
So …. GET RID OF THE WATER!!!

.

If you’re looking for a good hydrator that will actually help skin, instead of irritate, dehydrate and suffocate …. almost any natural oil, from the oil aisle at the grocery store, like coconut oil, applied to damp skin will work well.

.

If  you’re looking for a good hydrator WITH tons of concentrated, active compounds & nutrients specially selected to address the skin problems that you’re facing …. and no water …. any Couxcoux Serum for your skin type will work wonders.
