Emollients In Skincare
What are emollients? They are an ingredient in moisturizers that help soften and smooth the skin by repairing cracks in the skin barrier. Emollients also help prevent water loss and cover a broad category of many different ingredients and products like oils, lipids, butters, and fatty acids. These ingredients can either be natural or synthetically derived, and they work the same way by filling out spaces in your cells to smooth out your skin.
