Moisture Locking Body Lotion

When healthy, our skin naturally repairs itself. But many factors - from the environment to heredity - can negatively affect this ability, leading to severe dryness. Vaseline Intensive Rescue Moisture Locking Body Lotion increases moisture reserves instantly, then fills the gaps in the skin to lock moisture in all day, promoting the proper environment dry skin needs to repair itself.

*Compared to E45 Lotion, Vaseline Intensive Rescue Lotion is specially formulated to deliver two times the moisture.

Key ingredients:

Petrolatum – acts as an occlusive and locks moisture in
Glycerin – acts as a humectant helping skin repair itself
Dimethicone – works as an emollient ingredient and softens skin

How it Works

Very dry skin requires daily maintenance to keep hydrated and supple, and to prevent it from becoming drier. When skin is well-moisturised, its normal cellular functions operate smoothly, enabling the skin's ability to repair itself.

The effectiveness of Vaseline Intensive Rescue Moisture Locking Body Lotion can be found in its balance of key ingredients – specifically humectants and occlusives. Glycerin binds and locks individual water molecules to the skin, while occlusives fill the void of lost lipids and provide a physical barrier to prevent further water loss. The end result is that this combination of ingredients provides both instant relief and long-lasting care to the skin.

Long-Term Repair

Additional research confirms that within five to ten minutes of Vaseline Intensive Rescue Moisture Locking Body Lotion's application, the skin's moisture reserves are tripled, and remain at that level. What this means is that moisture stays in very dry skin, enhancing the skin's ability to repair itself.

Additional research shows that repeated daily use of Vaseline Intensive Rescue Moisture Locking Body Lotion significantly increases the level of moisture in skin over several days, further helping to promote the ideal environment that very dry skin needs to repair itself. Vaseline Intensive Rescue Moisture Locking Body Lotion helps skin lock in and hold moisture over time, so that all of its elements – from lipids, to desmosomes, to brand new skin cells – begin to function in unison to keep the skin healthy.

Performance

Vaseline scientists utilised Corneometer and SKICON Skin Hygrometer to compare skin moisture levels 24 hours after lotion application of Vaseline Intensive Rescue Moisture Locking Body Lotion to the moisture levels found 24 hours after application of a competitor lotion*. Over the course of a day only skin treated with Vaseline Intensive Rescue Moisture Locking Body Lotion maintained the higher levels of moisture. More importantly, at the end of a 24-hour period very dry skin treated with Vaseline Intensive Rescue Moisture Locking Body Lotion had the highest moisture levels compared to the competition and untreated skin.

Vaseline scientists also examined the visual appearance of dryness in skin 24 hours after the application of lotion. Skin treated with Vaseline Intensive Rescue Moisture Locking Body Lotion improved in terms of visual skin condition (essentially, the skin looked less dry and therefore healthier). Vaseline Intensive Rescue Moisture Locking Body Lotion improves dry skin's visual appearance.

Vaseline Intensive Rescue Moisture Locking Body Lotion is made with the right balance of key ingredients to instantly increase skin moisture and lock it in all day, promoting the proper environment for skin to repair itself.
