- Petroleum jelly
- Vitamin E
The ingredient glycerin helps to keep the skin supple and soft by attracting moisture to the skin. Vitamin E offers oxidative support and anti-aging properties. Petroleum jelly is believed to help to heal the skin, while locking in moisture. However, petroleum jelly and dimethicone, according to current research, could interfere with the natural hydration process, creating a dependency on these products to maintain the moisture levels of the skin. Another issue with this product’s formula is that this product contains stabilizers and thickeners, for instance, sodium carbomer, and ceteareth-20. Another inactive ingredient, benzyl alcohol, could further dry the skin. Of greater concern is that this product lacks key ingredients such as glucare or argireline, both tested and patented ingredients, proven to be effective in minimizing the signs of aging. This product is animal-friendly and cruelty-free.

Our Final Review of Sebamed Moisturizing Face Cream
This skin-care product seems acceptable. It is backed by a guarantee, and there is a discount offered. However, the guarantee does not allow the consumer a refund, merely store credit. In addition, the discount is only applicable if the consumer is willing to be locked into a subscription service, which is notoriously difficult to cancel. In addition, this product contains fillers and other ingredients that do not add value to the product’s formula. This product also contains ingredients that could lead to rashes, and even dry the skin out, amounting to being counterproductive. There are many similar products on the market, offering better quality ingredients and better customer care. It might be better to investigate one of those products as an alternative to this skin care product.
