African Botanics Cloudburst Micro-Emulsion Balancing Moisturizer is an ultra effective radiance-boosting anti-aging, antioxidant-rich moisturizer, with the texture and weight of a fast absorbing serum, that is formulated to deeply hydrate, balance, calm, heal, detoxify, plump, firm and nourish the skin. It is particularly effective to treat and heal skin that is lackluster, oily, congested, acne-prone, blemished, sensitive, unbalanced and inflamed. The potent humectants bind moisture to the skin, and the advanced water-in-oil emulsion technology, employed by African Botanics, ensures that this emulsion immediately melts into the skin offering deep hydration and calming and soothing properties to heal inflammation. Furthermore, fruit enzymes gently exfoliate dead skin cells helping to detoxify the skin allowing it to breathe unencumbered by dead skin cells that trap in toxins beneath the dead skin.

It can be used all over the face, neck and décolleté, or as a spot treatment on specific areas such as an the t-zone, areas of impacted by inflammation, blemishes, acne or sensitivity. It has a light earthy aroma that fades soon after it is absorbed by the skin.

Directions: Apply daily to face, neck and décolletage after Rose Treatment Essence and/or any treatment serum. Add additional layers to plump and prime the skin for makeup.

*The unique ability of Laminaria Algae molecules is to protect and repair cells. Living in the Iroise Sea, this Algae have developed a defense system enabling it to resist the extreme conditions such as storms, ocean currents and very high tides. The fucoidan structure in the cell walls of the Laminaria plays a protective and restorative role in rebuilding the tissues after a storm.

In-Vitro testing demonstrated that Laminaria Algae stimulates Type 1 Collagen synthesis and fibroblast proliferation. The fucoidans blocking the enzymes responsible for the deterioration of the extracellular matrix as well as the pro-inflammatory cytokines which damage the collagen.
