Emollient is a wax-like, lubricating, thickening substance that reduces water loss and softens and soothes the skin.
What are the benefits?
Moisturisers usually include a mixture of humectants, occlusives, and emollients.
Humectants function by drawing water molecules from the air to the skin's surface.
Occlusives function as a physical shield, preventing water leakage from the skin's surface and shielding the skin from potential irritants.
