Caring for skin will always be a topic of conversation. This month's formulary focuses on next-gen solutions for skin health, well-being and the psyche.

Moisture Rescue Eco-conscious Body Cream


This delightfully fresh gel-cream has a light texture and is designed to soften the entire body. Instead of low-spreading mineral oil, it is formulated with our highly stable, rapeseed-based Lipex Bassol C.

Consumers can use it in the morning to kick-start their day or to re-balance skin after a workout. Best of all, it’s as kind to the planet as it is to skin.

It leaves even the driest hands looking and feeling soothed, softened and restored; natural ingredients (CPAI) = 97%.
