Dual action moisturisation

July 2012

Croda announces the launch of DuraQuench IQ SA, an innovative moisturising complex that Croda says delivers superior moisturisation via dual action technology.

It optimises skin moisturisation by the formation of an intelligent structural layer on the surface of the skin, while regulating water loss from within by reinforcing the skin’s natural barrier. DuraQuench IQ SA is temperature and humidity responsive, providing durable hydration irrespective of seasonal variations or alternating exposure to air-conditioned spaces and humid outdoors typical in warm tropical climates. It also protects against the drying effects of soaps and detergents and provides clearly visible improvement in skin condition with daily use. DuraQuench IQ SA meets regulatory requirements globally, including JSQI and Chinese cosmetic regulations.
