This gentle serum contains ceramides in addition to glycerin. Ceramides help protect the skin from moisture loss and support the skin’s barrier. Dr. Marchbein is a partner with Unilever, Pond’s parent company on several projects.

Both gambir and chlorella extracts, which reduce wrinkle formation, made it through the process. Hydrating hyaluronic acids also made it through.
