Ingredient Feature: Hydromanil

Have you ever heard of a tara tree? Most likely not, but the seeds of this plant, native to Peru, can actually play a big role in helping to bring moisture to your skin.

Hydromanil is an ingredient derived from the tara seed and it is known to be an innovative and potent moisturizer, which is why we made it a key ingredient in both our Obagi Hydrate™ and Obagi Hydrate Luxe moisturizers. This ultra-advanced moisturizing ingredient captures and retains water and assimilates it into the skin in an immediate and natural way to enhance your skin’s appearance and texture.1

How Does It Work?
Molecules extracted from the tara seed undergo a technologically innovative process to produce Hydromanil. As a skin care ingredient, Hydromanil is a revolutionary 2-in-1 moisturizer that delivers both immediate skin hydration and a sequential release of moisturizing active compounds for 8-hour moisture protection.1

The Science
The Hydromanil matrix molecules remain on the surface of the skin, holding in the moisture and thus preventing water loss. This technology enhances your skin’s appearance and texture by allowing the epidermis to remain hydrated and to retain moisture.1

What Does This Mean For You?
Next time you grab a moisturizer, remember not all moisturizers are alike. Advanced technology has allowed us to harness powerful, natural ingredients like Hydromanil for optimal hydration results. Unlike many other moisturizers on the market, those made with Hydromanil, like Obagi’s Hydrate products, can deliver moisture that lasts throughout the day.2

Whether you’re simply seeking extra moisturization for dry skin this winter or in need of enhanced skin hydration throughout your Nu-Derm transformation, our Hydrate Facial Moisturizer and Hydrate Luxe with Hydromanil may be able to help. Ask your skin care physician if either or both are right for you.
