Science behind this product:
A good moisturizer primarily consist of 3 components - 1. Humectants / Hydrators, 2. Emollients, and 3. Occlusives.
Humectants ensure your skin gets the boost of hydration, hence reducing dryness. Emollients moisturize the skin and reduce itching and flaking. Lastly, Occlusives reduce transepidermal water loss (TEWL) hence holding the moisture inside.
This moisturizer contains an optimum blend of all these humectants - Sodium Polyglutamate (holds 4 times more water than hyaluronic acid), Vitamin B5, Xylitylglucoside, Glycerine and Amino acids to hydrate skin from within. Squalane and Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride as emollients for long term moisturization, soft & supple skin, without making skin oily.
It also contains Shea Butter which is an excellent occlusive and locks the moisture inside our skin.
The product is infused with 3% Sepicalm, which combines amino acids (building blocks of proteins) with minerals (Magnesium & Potassium) to soothe the irritation, calm the redness, and relieve the stinging sensation. It's tested to reduce redness after UV stress by about 25% and -90% reduction of stinging intensity of Lactic Acid within 1 minute. Performance of Sepicalm is further boosted by adding Oat in 2 forms; Oat Extract and Colloidal Oat to further calm the skin.
These properties make this moisturizer suitable for all skin types and especially suitable for normal to oily skin or sensitized & irritated skin.

8. Is this face moisturizer fungal acne safe?
Based on available researches in this field, yes. We have carefully selected ingredients to ensure the product is acne safe. Two ingredients around which we got most questions are Glycerin & Shea Butter. Glycerin is known to be safe & not contribute in growth of Malassezia (Ref: https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2FBF02141109). For Shea Butter, there are no studies on it’s role in fungal acne or activity of Malassezia, but there are few studies that claim Shea Butter to have fungistatic activities and some where use of shea butter reduced Seborrheic dermatitis, which again is caused by Malassezia (Ref: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3100109/). However, if you are facing persistent fungal acne, please consult your dermatologist before using the product.

Sepicalm 3% + Oat Moisturizer
Sepicalm 3% + Oat Moisturizer
The moisturiser is light and easy to apply owing to its gel like touch. Once applied, it is quickly retained by the skin and then feels like a nice oil free creme protecting the skin. Minimal to no scent is an added benefit.
It would be nice to see the quantity a little more in the packaging. All and all a good pick!
