Face Cream with Coconut Oil
This silicone-free facial moisturizer is created from premium, mild, skin-nourishing ingredients to maintain healthy skin by providing lightweight, buildable moisture without greasy residue. This cream features a combination of naturally-derived emulsifiers to produce an emulsion that is thick and creamy, yet has a lightweight invisible feel. Cola®Fax CPE provides a dry, silky rub-out, while phospholipid-based Cola®Lipid ST adds a creamier body and acts as a skin conditioner to smooth and soften. Also included is Cola®Moist BE 200 MB for long-lasting hydration, promoting healthy, hydrated skin. Gentle enough for daily use on all skin types.
