What ingredients help with hydration?
Keeping your skin well hydrated is one of the best ways to improve its elasticity, tone and firmness. Natural Instinct’s body care products are full of powerful botanic ingredients which increase hydration and help to give your skin a supple, youthful appearance.
Glycerin is present in all our body products and works at a cellular level to help maintain hydration balance. Glycerin also acts as an emollient on the skin which is important for moisture retention.
Many ingredients in the body care range are high in antioxidants which help hydration.
Found in our Vitalise Body Wash, Kakadu Plum has the highest known content of Vitamin C and is a powerful antioxidant delivering vitamins, boosting collagen and infusing moisture deep into the dermis. This fruit is native to Australia and contains phytochemicals Gallic Acid and Ellagic Acid, known for their anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. It is well known for its ability to protect the skin’s barrier and restore elasticity.
Rosehip Oil, found in our Relax Body Wash, is a powerhouse of vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids, all important contributors to maintaining good skin hydration. Omega-3 and Omega-6 along with vitamins A, C and E improve hydration, plumping the skin and preventing dry, scaly skin. Jojoba Oil, also found in our Relax Body Wash, follows up with a protective moisturising layer to lock in moisture and suppleness.
Avocado Oil, found in the Uplift Body Wash hydrates intensely and softens the skin infusing it with antioxidants, essential fatty acids, minerals and vitamins.

Washing your hands with our Botanic Hand Wash is the first step to clean, nourished and moisturised hands.

Lavender has anti-ageing benefits whilst calming the senses and leaves your hands smelling divine. Aloe Leaf Juice, rich in Vitamin A, B12 and C, works to soften, tighten and soothe the skin. Sage Oil, rich in antioxidants, has purifying properties leaving your skin feeling fresh.
The second step is to regularly apply our Softening Hand and Nail Cream which will provide a smooth, protective barrier helping to retain moisture and prevent dry, damaged, ageing skin. Our Softening Hand and Nail Cream contains Shea Butter which is derived from the Karite fruit, renowned for its ability to restore elasticity and suppleness to dry, damaged skin. It also contains Sweet Almond Oil which is easily absorbed providing a deep level of hydration further strengthening the skin’s defensive barrier.
When drying your hands, choose a hand towel or paper towel to wipe your hands instead of using a hand dryer.
Lastly, pop on a pair of gloves when washing dishes or laundry to avoid damage caused by detergents.
