Alternative to Dermalogica Active Moist Moisturiser

Alternative to Dermalogica Active Moist Moisturiser

We know that the Dermalogica Active Moist Moisturiser is a popular product and we also know from the messages that we receive that some are looking for a more natural and more affordable alternative, and our Nakin Matt Formula Face Cream makes a nice option for this. The products are not exactly the same, but they share similar properties in that they are both for oilier skin types and they both help to control oil production, plus are made with lots of natural ingredients.

We have lots of customers that are switching from the bigger brands to Nakin, usually because our products are much more natural and affordable. Our closest match to the Active Moist Moisturiser is our Nakin Matt Formula Face Cream. One difference is that our Matt Formula Face Cream does contain some plant oils but ones that are suitable for oilier and combination skin types, and it is not oily.

You might be surprised to hear that plant oils are actually very balancing to oil production in our skin, and they have been used for centuries in skincare routines. They are known for their nourishing and hydrating properties, but also help to balance the oil production in our skin as they contribute to achieving a healthy balance of oil in our skin.

Before we can understand how plant oils help to balance oil production, it's important to first understand what sebum is and its role in our skin. Sebum is an oily substance produced by the sebaceous glands in our skin. It helps to keep our skin hydrated and protected from external factors such as bacteria and pollutants. However, when produced in excess, sebum can lead to oily skin and clogged pores.

Plant oils are rich in fatty acids, antioxidants, and other beneficial compounds which is another reason that we use them in our skincare products. These properties help to nourish and hydrate the skin while also providing protective benefits. When our skin is lacking in moisture, the sebaceous glands go into overdrive and produce more sebum to compensate. This can result in oily skin, and so applying the right plant oils topically helps to prevent this..

Our Matt Formula Face Cream is hydrating but without any greasiness. This is because we use high quality plant ingredients that are excellent skin hydrators, nourishers and protectors - like hyaluronic acid, cassia extract, argan, jojoba and baobab oil. It is for both day and night use as it does not contain SPF, which is usually not enough protection when in a face cream, plus it is filled with actives and extracts that benefit skin in both the day and night.

It can be found here along with the rest of our range Natural Anti-Ageing Skincare Collection | Nakin Skincare We have a full collection of cleansers, treatments, creams and lip balm which all make great alternatives to various Dermalogica products.

We often say to customers that are switching to Nakin that you might find that our products feel different to Dermalogica products, as we never use synthetic ingredients like silicones and glycols. These are all on our banned list as although they leave skin feeling silky soft and smooth, we believe that they have no beauty benefits. Instead, we fill our products with as many skin boosting plant ingredients as possible. Our products are also free of phenoxyethanol and synthetic fragrance, and they have a subtle 100% natural scent.
