AM MOISTURE is now AM Rose Moisture
Dry Skin Ages Faster Than Other Skin Types
Your skin needs a moisturizing cocktail composed of lipids and water. Why? Well, your dermis is about 79% soluble collagen when you are young. By the time you are 30, most have lost 25% of that. Add to that, a lack of moisture, and collagen becomes insoluble, cross-linking together in a taut, rigid formation known as WRINKLES.
THE GOAL of HGC's Dry Skin Formulas is to: 1) stimulate collagen formation with our unique 200% Aloe Vera Base (increases collagen formation up to 8 times) along with the fabulous Alpine Rose Stem Cell technology that increases skin stem cell vitality and boots epidermal regeneration and protection.
2) keep dry skin sufficiently hydrated with both Lipid (light, oily compound) and Water moisture so that collagen fibers will remain plump and elastic.
SUPER HYDRATING DUO : Sodium Hyaluronate (also called Hyaluronic Acid) is known as the "water reservoir" holding up to 40,000 times its weight in water. It is the "goo" that protects cells. As skin ages, the amount of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) decreases from 70% to 30%, so it is imperative to restore it. Glycosaminoglycans (GAG's) found in connective tissue promote the ability of collagen fibers to retain water and bind moisture throughout the epidermis. HA and GAG's are essential to fight the war on aging and are included in HGC's dry skin formulas.
LIPIDS TO THE RESCUE: Yes, moisture loss causes premature aging, but lack of sufficient lipid (oil) production does too! Skin loses plumpness and flexibility.
HGC has included: 1) Squalane, a strong antioxidant that penetrates deeply to pump up the volume to diminish fine lines and wrinkles,
2) Essential Fatty Acids, an important component of cell walls, insures cells flexibility, smoothness, and longevity,
3) Evening Primrose Oil improves skins elasticity and firmness, reduces epidermal moisture, and fights inflammation,
4) Coconut Derived Emulsifiers mimic the skins own natural lipid barrier to improve moisturization,
5) Rosehip Seed Oil is high in antioxidants, tightens pores, and brightens skin. It is the only plant oil to contain Retinol, known to be an anti-aging superstar.

I think is’t a great moisturizer but I think I have an allergy to roses. I would still recommend this moisture cream as long as you don’t have allergies to roses.
