Aryanveda Creams contain ingredients that work by forming a protective barrier over the skin, which helps to lock moisture in and keep irritants out. Unfortunately, the skin is constantly exposed to contaminants, such as those in cosmetics, cleaning products, and pollutants, all of which irritate the skin and increase the risk of contact dermatitis. Aryanveda Creams are the skin’s first line of defence against these contaminants.

They also work as an effective short-term shield against changing weather conditions that have a drying effect on the skin, such as prolonged exposure to the sun, cold winds and low temperatures. Good barrier ingredients to look out for include glycerine, silicones and dimethicone. Some creams also have anti-bacterial properties that leave the skin feeling protected.
