Our ultimate guide to the balanced blends of actives in your formula for healthy skin.



Ceramides are naturally occurring, skin-identical lipids that make up of approximately 50% of our skin’s protective outer layer. Coats Gentle Hydrating Cleanser contains 3 types of essential Ceramides: Ceramide AP, Ceramide NP and Ceramide EOP. All of which work together to help improve the strength of the skin barrier, boost skin elasticity and improve skin texture resulting in healthier looking skin.



Glycerin is a skin-identical natural moisturiser and humectant that keeps the lipids between skin cells in a healthy state, drawing hydration deep within the upper layers of the skin, protecting the skin moisture barrier, preventing irritation and providing lasting moisturization.


Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid is a natural moisturiser that is found naturally in skin and works as a sponge to bind and hold moisture. It provides surface hydration and forms a protective barrier on the skin. Hyaluronic Acid can bind up to 1000X its weight in water.
