Your skin craves moisture. The skin cells and deeper tissues need an appropriate level of hydration in order to function efficiently, grow new cells, resist disease and maintain its defense of your body against exterior environmental stresses. A sufficient level of moisture also prevents the development of dry, flaky skin, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and provides a smooth, youthful, glowing appearance to your skin. MD Formulations Hydrate Products are designed to furnish moisture to skin cells whatever the condition and special needs of your skin.
There is often confusion about moisturizers, that they are necessarily oily and greasy; for most people, particularly those who already have oily or blemish-prone skin, this is the last thing they think they need. MD Formulations Hydrate Products are non-oily. Instead, they use the power of alpha hydroxyl acids (AHAs), a class of organic compounds which improve the cell barrier function of skin, allowing the cells to more readily accept and retain moisture. The AHAs in MD Formulations Hydrate Products also improve cell turnover, naturally encouraging exfoliation to clear the skin of old, dead skin cells.

Additional MD Formulations Products Information
Since the alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) in MD Formulations Hydrate Products are easily absorbed into the skin, they are able to travel into the lower vascular dermis layer where most skin aging occurs. This means that, in addition to their moisturizing and skin cell turnover benefits, AHAs are also able to provide direct antioxidant and anti-aging action to where they are most needed. Your skin not only looks more youthful, but is actually protected against potential side effects associated with premature aging.
By rehydrating skin cells, MD Formulations Moisture Defense Antioxidant Crème immediately restores suppleness and smoothness to skin, while strengthening its defense against environmental stresses. In addition to the AHAs, the crème also includes Camellia oleifera (Chinese tea oil) to provide a botanical moisturizing mechanism. Oil free and with a pH 4.4 level, it matches your skin’s natural acid mantle level.
A companion product, MD Formulations Moisture Defense Antioxidant Lotion, performs the same functions, but is also excellent for use after shaving. The eye zone is notorious for the thinness of the skin and it tendency to show lines, wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles.
MD Formulations Moisture Defense Antioxidant Eye Crème uses AHAs and caffeine to counteract these conditions. It is also oil-free, non-comedogenic, allergy tested and fragrance free, with a pH 3.8 to maintain the proper skin balance.
For even stronger antioxidant benefits, MD Formulations Moisture Defense Antioxidant Hydrating Gel uses Camellia oleifera (green tea) and Glycyrrhiza glabra (licorice root) extracts for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory actions. This gel is idea for oily and blemish-prone skin types.
