Discover an innovative approach to effective moisturisation with Croda’s scientifically balanced moisturising complex, DuraQuench IQ SA. By forming an intelligent structural bilayer on the skin’s surface, DuraQuench IQ SA helps to reinforce the skin’s natural barrier and delivers up to 72 hours of moisturisation from leave-on applications. Capable of adapting to the surrounding environment, DuraQuench IQ SA optimises skin hydration by regulating water loss from the skin at different temperatures and humidities.
