Hydrating Skincare Ingredients

Hydrating Skincare Ingredients

For many of us hydrating skincare is something that is an absolute must and when we use a good product like those in Nakin Natural Anti-Ageing Face Care range our skin looks and feels better. Good hydration in skincare is all about the ingredients and at Nakin we believe in this being from natural sources. There are so many popular ingredients that are around at the moment, but the sad truth is that many of them are synthetic. At Nakin we believe that hydration for skin should come about from natural sources, and this is the best way to hydrate and plump our skin. Read on to find out more about the hydrating skincare ingredients that we use.

When we formulate our natural anti-ageing skincare, we use the best ingredients that stand out for their hydrating powers. Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, draws moisture into the skin, providing intense hydration and plumping out fine lines. Oils such as jojoba and argan, which are rich in essential fatty acids and vitamins, help to reinforce the skin's moisture barrier, ensuring it stays hydrated and resilient. Glycerin, another humectant, attracts water from the air and the deeper layers of the skin to hydrate the stratum corneum.

Hyaluronic Acid:

  • Hyaluronic acid is in most of our Nakin Face Products because is has superb hydrating properties. It is a naturally occurring substance in the body that plays a crucial role in keeping the skin hydrated and supple.
  • It has the unique ability to hold up to one thousand times its weight in water, making it an excellent ingredient for hydration.
  • As we age, our natural levels of hyaluronic acid decline, leading to dryness and loss of elasticity in the skin.
  • Using skincare products containing hyaluronic acid can help replenish the skin's moisture levels, resulting in a plumper and more youthful appearance.
  • It is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive and acne-prone skin, as it is non-comedogenic and non-irritating.

Ceramides from Plant Oils:

  • At Nakin we love plant oils as they are super nutritious, but they are also really hydrating due to the ceramides they contain, which are a type of lipid (fat) and are also found naturally in the stratum corneum of the skin.
  • They play a crucial role in maintaining the skin's barrier function, keeping it hydrated and protected from external irritants.
  • As we age, our natural levels of ceramides decrease, leading to dryness, wrinkles, and other signs of ageing.
  • Skincare products containing ceramides can help replenish the skin's barrier and improve its moisture retention capabilities.
  • They are great for all skin types and especially for those with dry or sensitive skin and can be found in the plant oils of our cleansing milk, eye cream, moisturisers, serum and face oil.


  • Glycerin, is an ingredient that we also use a lot as it is a humectant that helps to attract and retain moisture in the skin.
  • Ours is always derived from plant sources and we love the natural hydrating properties.
  • Glycerin works by drawing water from the air and keeping the stratum corneum (outermost layer of the skin) hydrated.
  • This ingredient is suitable for all skin types and can be used in both dry and humid climates to maintain the skin's moisture levels.
  • It also has emollient properties, making it an effective ingredient for softening and smoothing dry, rough skin.
