An Ultra Hydrating Cream for Very Dry or Damaged Skin

DESCRIPTION
  • Designed to preserve and improve healthy skin barrier function
  • Nurtures and improves hydration of delicate, damaged and sensitive skin
  • Contains Natural Moisturising Factors like those found in normal, healthy skin
  • Innovative barrier technology, with emollient lipids and potent antioxidants
  • Suitable for all ages and skin types (including damaged skin from radiation therapy)
  • For use on the face and body, or anywhere your skin could use some extra TLC

We started working on the formula for this cream over 2 years ago and we’re so pleased with the result. It uses natural technology to help improve skin that is very dry or damaged. After lots and lots of formulating, we created this beautiful, rich hydrating cream and it’s not just for those that have skin health issues. The texture is lovely and it blends into the skin beautifully. As we age, our skin needs a bit more love. Supple and elastic skin resists lines and wrinkles so we recommend it to everyone when their skin is particularly dry.

Almost everyone agrees that barrier creams can be the best for dry or damaged skin as they help keep moisture in and irritants out. But barrier creams can feel thick, hot and oily. Kids, in particular, find them to be very uncomfortable. We were able to solve this issue. Cutting out all the chemistry lingo, the cream works by holding a water layer over the top of all the good stuff so when you rub it into the skin the water bond breaks and releases the moisturising ingredients. It’s a quite new, natural technology.

What is in it? Well, Ceramides for a start. They are the fats that are in the upper layer of skin that help the skin retain moisture. There are all sorts of Ceramides and we have chosen the best mix we can (they’re fantastically expensive by the way). We also included Magnesium, Aloe, Natural Vitamin E and much more to help keep skin as healthy as possible. As always, it doesn’t have Parabens, Phenoxyethanol, Glycols or a whole list of other things that we always avoid when making any product. This study found that skin hydration using a cream with Ceramides increased skin hydration. Read more about it here.

Who should be using it? Anyone who feels they have super dry skin or compromised skin barrier function, and want a beautiful, rich, natural cream to help improve it.

For patients going through radiation treatment or chemotherapy, this cream provides moisture and creates a protective barrier. It alleviates skin discomfort such as dryness, irritation, itchiness and stinging, as well as improves the visual appearance of inflamed skin including patches of whiteness, redness, rough texture and flakiness. The product has been designed to help normalise the structure and function of the skin by providing an emollient, lipid barrier to reduce moisture loss. This is achieved by including relevant Natural Moisturising Factors (NMF) like those found in normal, healthy skin and have been shown to be beneficial for mild to severe dryness, returning the skin to optimal functionality. The antioxidants in this formula assist in calming and soothing inflamed skin.

Here's how it works! A healthy skin barrier protects against moisture evaporation, irritants and allergens. Our Double Cream has been designed to help repair and maintain a healthy skin barrier using natural oils and Ceramides, as demonstrated in the diagrams below: Trans-Epidermal Water Loss

Here’s why a healthy skin barrier important:

FAQs

Who is Double Cream with Ceramides best for?

We always make our products suitable for all skin types, and this one is no exception! It's made for absolutely every-body. This means all ages, shapes, sizes and genders, from your face to your feet. But it's particularly suitable for those with hypersensitive, dry, thin, damaged and fragile skin, or those going through chemotherapy or radiation treatment. It was designed to help normalise the structure and function of the skin by providing an emollient, lipid barrier to reduce moisture loss. This is achieved by including relevant Natural Moisturising Factors (NMF) like those found in normal, healthy skin and have been shown to be beneficial for mild to severe dryness, returning the skin to optimal functionality. The antioxidants in this formula assist in calming and soothing inflamed skin.

What are Ceramides, and how are they beneficial?

Ceramides are fats (lipids) that exist in high concentrations in the skin, particularly when it’s healthy. Not only do they make up more than 50% of the skin’s composition, but they assist in retaining water and protecting the skin barrier from irritants. Think of them as protectants that hold the skin together. Those that suffer from skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, acne etc., may have a Ceramide deficiency, so for those we recommend supplementing with our topical cream.

Over time, factors like sun damage, aging and other irritants can decrease Ceramide content in the skin. The skin barrier is more susceptible to weakening when Ceramides are depleted, causing the skin to become drier, more easily irritated and show signs of ageing. By topping up Ceramide levels in the skin, they can help rebuild skin strength and improve skin barrier function. They also work wonders to help the skin maintain moisture, your best defence against ageing.

What type of Ceramides do you use?

We use Ceramides 3 and 3B as they are the types that are most similar to the skin. Ceramide 3 is a skin-identical barrier lipid that works to strengthen the skin’s barrier function. Essentially, as they are identical molecules to the ones found in our skin, they are easily absorbed and you’ll receive long-term protection and support.

Why is the Double Cream so expensive?

Our Double Cream with Ceramides is more expensive than our other moisturising products as it includes Ceramides, which is a very costly ingredient.

Are your moisturisers made of milk?

We aren’t called MooGoo because our moisturisers are made of milk. If you think about it, putting any meaningful amount of fresh milk into a cream and putting it on a shelf in a store for a while would not end well – yuck! We do use ethically and sustainably sourced Milk Protein from a credible Australian supplier in some of our skincare products because research has found that it helps to increase skin elasticity by up to 20%.

Are your moisturisers suitable to use on the face?

In general, most generic body moisturisers are made with very average ingredients to make skin feel smooth and cover a large area (skin is the largest organ). They can also be quite heavy and greasy, so not the most ideal to wear on your face or under makeup. Many body moisturisers are also made with powerful penetration enhancers based on Glycols and PEGs (essentially solvents) that help the cream penetrate the top layers of the skin, so they don’t feel as greasy. We suggest not using any creams that fall into this category, but especially not on your face and the delicate skin around your eyes. BUT, if your body moisturiser is made with high-quality, skin-friendly, natural ingredients like ours are, then YES, they’re absolutely suitable for use on the face, in fact, we recommend it! The natural, skin-friendly oils we use will sink into the skin to quench deep down dehydration, also making them non-comedogenic, meaning they won’t block your pores either.

**Is this product pH balanced? What does that mean? **

Yes, it sure is! The pH level of our moisturisers is balanced to 5.5, which is similar to human skin. Essentially, pH can be measured from 0 to 14 depending on how acidic or alkaline a substance is. Since our skin sits at a pH of about 5.5, it’s slightly acidic. Healthy skin can retain moisture, maintain a robust microbiome and keep irritants away. We of course want to support this, so using creams that are pH balanced to match our skin is one of the best ways to do this.

What does "Dermatologically Tested" mean?

You may have seen the term “Dermatologically Tested” on lots of products before, but did you know there’s not an actual definition or regulation for this term? Because that didn’t sit right with us, and because our aim is to make products for people with very sensitive skin, we decided to send a bunch of them off to be tested in an independent lab on 54 people who reported having sensitive skin. The results were given on a scale of 0 to 5 with 0 being no irritation or redness and 5 being a reaction. We’re happy to report that other than one person who had a reaction to the adhesive on the patch and another who found the patches painful to remove, all subjects reported 0 for redness and irritation for all the products we sent for testing. To check out the full report and summary of the test we did on this product, click here.

    Possibly my favourite from moogoo

    This stuff is intensely thick, soothing, and creates a nice barrier on the skin. I recently used it after some laser treatment on my face and it worked a treat. When my skin is crying for help I use this.

    Great! But more info on ceramides please :)

    Feels so good on my hands and body. It’s nourishing and leaves skin plump for at least a few hours - but I like to put it on my wrinkles hands more often. Would like to know what kind of ceramides are used in the ingredient list!

    Hay Germaine,
    Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate your positive comments about the nourishing effects on your skin.

    Regarding the ceramides used in the ingredient list, we are using Ceramides 1 and III. The ingredient label has been reviewed by a regulatory consultant to ensure INCI compliance. While the INCI name is simply "Ceramides," we appreciate your suggestion to include clarification in brackets, which we will consider for future updates.

    If you have any further questions or feedback, please feel free to reach out!

    Great for use during radiation

    I love this cream! I have used it during and after my radiation treatment to support my skin and it has been brilliant. My skin still has its elasticity and the cream helps to moisturise and calm any redness. It’s particularly great when kept in the fridge. Couldn’t recommend it more highly
