Why Medik8 Hydr8 B5 Intense?

Hydr8 B is a superior version of the Medik8 Hydr8 serum. In addition to Hyaluronic Acid, it contains Panthenol (Vitamin B5) and Natural Moisturising Factors, which triple the hydration effects.

It uses Multi-Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid technology to deliver immediate hydration to different layers of the skin, while also improving longer term hydration.

Your skin’s internal moisture reserves will be recharged, helping to smooth out those fine lines and wrinkles from within. It will also strengthen the skin barrier and enable it to better hold onto moisture. Healthy, hydrated skin is a more resilient, and better able to fight stressors and aggressors.

This serum also contains ingredients to prevent the loss of the skin’s naturally occurring Hyaluronic Acid.

Key ingredients

Medik8 Hydr8 B5 Intense is boosted with Multi-Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid, Panthenol and Natural Moisturising Factors for the intensified and lasting hydration. It also contains other active ingredients to nourish the skin and promote a dewy glow.

Multi-Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid has the ability to penetrate different layers of the skin. Hyaluronic Acid has the unique ability to attract and retain more than 1000 times its own weight in water. It draws moisture from the atmosphere into the skin to leave the skin feeling and looking supple.

Natural Moisturising Factors are naturally part of the topmost layer of skin and are integral to maintaining hydration. They’re able to grab onto moisture to quench the skin. NMFs are made up of a number of elements that are essential to skin health, including Amino Acids, Lactate, Urea and Pyrrolidone Carboxylic Acid (PCA). NMFs play a key role in the hydration of the skin, enabling it to remain bouncy and resilient.

Panthenol, or Vitamin B5, is a soothing ingredient that supports the regeneration of skin cells and helps skin retain moisture.

Saskatoon Berry Extract contains specific antioxidants known as anthocyanins. This super active is able to block the enzyme that breaks down Hyaluronic Acid in the upper layers of skin, thereby protecting the natural reservoir of this youth element. It helps to promote supple skin from inside.

Soy Extract is another natural antioxidant that protects the skin. Soy is able stimulate the skin’s natural production of Hyaluronic Acid, as well as enhance collagen production so that it looks younger.

Biosaccharide Gum is a natural sugar that’s able to form a breathable film over the skin. It replenishes elements in the skin and helps to retain moisture and build a reservoir of Hyaluronic Acid in the skin.

Glyceryl Glucoside stimulates the skin’s aquaporin channels. These are hydration tunnels in the skin. They enable water and glycerin to circulate, thereby maintaining the correct water balance in the skin.
