what are those first 3 ingredients?

you ever read the first two or three ingredients on a label and think--- what????  you're not alone. 
skincare labels list all ingredients in order of concentration or descending order of predominance. In other words, the ingredient present at the highest percentage is listed first, the next highest percentage second, etc.  this fact makes it essential for consumers, especially those with sensitive skin, to understand what those ingredients are. 
other skincare products’ main ingredients tend to be compound-binding agents that can be problematic for sensitive skin & may dry you out.
glö's Vita C Primer’s main ingredients are moisturizing agents (humectants & emollients) to preserve the antioxidant complex’s consistency + strengthen skin barrier integrity. these work well for all skin types.
lets break that down:
  • known for their ability to retain moisture while also preserving the overall properties of the product at hand
  • pull water from the dermis (the second layer of skin) to the epidermis (the top layer of skin). this increases the level of moisture in the stratum corneum, the layer of dead cells that comprise the epidermis (top level)
    •  restores the skin barrier to soften skin texture
    • when the top layer of your skin gets dry, it cracks and flakes off. this leaves empty spaces the cells on your skin. emollients fill those spaces with fatty substances, called lipids, which make your skin smoother and softer.

    so lets break that down again:

    glo's main ingredients {aside from the vitamins & antioxidants listed on the front label} are skin-barrier-restoring, moisture-supporting agents.  that is something to feel good about!
