Use Moisturizers with Good Emollients and Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF).

tick-greenNatural Moisturizing Factor (NMF) refers to different substances that draw water into the skin from the environment.

tick-greenNMF is naturally found in the skin – in fact it makes up 20% to 30% of the dry weight of the stratum corneum (outermost layer of the epidermis).

tick-greenNMF is made up primarily of amino acids (40%). It also contains 12% of both sodium PCA and lactate.  Urea, ions, sugars and some minor components make up the remaining 34%

tick-greenThe components of NMF therefore help maintain a healthy and moist outer skin layer. They also prevent or decrease cracking, scaling, flaking and tightness of the skin.

tick-greenWhen the amino acids (proteins) interact with other skin components, NMF also improves the skins elasticity and skin barrier.
