Moisturization in skin care formulations requires an understanding of clinical needs, relevant biological targets and the aesthetic preferences of consumers. The efficacy of moisturizers must be established in vivo due to consumer interest in both visual and instrumental validation. This review outlines the challenges of formulating moisturizing facial skin care products in line with such principles.
