  • Dry skin moisturizer in humid or Coastal region

    Iam trying to prepare a dry skin moisturizer for humid region. I am using Hyaluronic Acid along with silicones and elastomers. What other humectants can be used for this formulation or rather in place of HA for increasing its efficacy?

    about any humectant will be better than HA.

    The list is long…and I guess would normally be based on availability:


    Sodium PCA

    Sodium Lactate

    1,3 Propanediol




    Polyglutamic acid


    Most suppliers…will designate an entire category to humectants….there are many.

    Good luck.

    I’m an Aussie living in the tropics, so I come up against this issue constantly.

    Counter-intuitive to most, common sense to some – is that a good face oil blend can do wonders for dry skin. And I prefer these over lotions and creams.

    I have been formulating and manufacturing for 20 years, and a well-formulated face oil has done wonders for the sales of my Private Label customers. In recent times it has become a high-demand product, outselling lotions/creams full of preservatives and synthetics.

    And this is the prime advantage of a well-formulated face oil. You will not find fillers and other gunk that can complicate and aggravate your skin.

    And I will usually formulate a number of oils in the product, depending on my client’s requirements. A single oil often does not come up to the mark.

    A well-formulated face oil absorbs quickly and evenly into your skin, smoothing patchy skin. And when blending, and depending on my client’s requirements, I will formulate essential oils into the blend. For example, to convey a sense of well-being.

    Dry skin is happier with triglycerides and ceramides than a humectant.
