Antarcticine, sourced from Antarctica, is a glycoprotein that helps to hydrate dry skin and provide it with a noticeably smoother appearance while offering superb protection from the damaging effects of free radicals. The cryoprotective (protection against freezing) properties of these glacial proteins help to protect and moisturize skin in extremely cold temperatures by facilitating the retention of natural water reserves.
Imperata Cylindrica’s roots contain high concentrations of potassium which provides immediate and lasting hydration for dry skin. Native to many of Earth’s deserts, this plant is especially prolific in the Australian Outback and is believed to have been used as a substitute for salt by indigenous Australians of centuries past.
A signature Kiehl’s ingredient, Squalane is a botanical lipid that is similar in molecular structure to natural skin lipids. Squalane has an exceptional affinity to skin and absorbs easily to help restore skin’s moisture balance and to keep it soft and supple.
