What is waterless skincare?
Water is essential to life. Usually, when we think of water, we think of hydration. In fact, many skincare products list water first in their formulations. Why? For one reason, water is a natural solvent that is used to blend ingredients together. If you’ve ever made lemonade, you’ve probably seen how adding sugar to water and stirring it will cause the sugar to dissolve. Water is great for lemonade, but what about your skin? The fact is that skincare products made with water can actually cause more harm than good? Why?

How so? Our skin produces natural oils that serve as a protective barrier. When water is used in skincare, it takes that protection away as it evaporates, leaving your skin dry. You’ve probably experienced this after taking a shower or bath.
Instead of using water, many skincare brands have discovered the wisdom of using oils like olive and almond as a primary ingredient. These oils are natural moisturizers that protect and strengthen the skin. For instance, olive oil is loaded with antioxidants that helps to heal the skin
