Colour And Texture
Bioderma Atoderm Intensive Baume is white in colour.
It does not have any fragrance in it.
The texture is quite creamy but not too thick like a balm either. It spreads without effort. But it does not get absorbed to a matte finish.
There is certainly a slight greasiness and sticky feel to it.
I usually rub half a pea size of the cream between my finger tips and then, pat the skin rather than massage the cream in.
Bioderma Atoderm Intensive Baume has many ingredients that are carefully selected so that it does suit irritated and sensitive skin.
These ingredients soothe and calm irritations while also, encouraging cell repair.
Glycerine And Mannitol
Glycerine helps moisturise the skin by pulling moisture from the surrounding to your skin.
Mannitol and hyaluronic acid are used together to hydrate the skin and improve skin quality. They latch on to the water molecules and prevent it from escaping.
Mannitol is used for conditioning the skin as well as to moisturise dry skin.
Cosmetic mineral oil helps seal water molecules and thus prevents drying of the skin. This helps hydrate the skin for longer duration.
Note – Cosmetic grade mineral oil is not the same as the petroleum by-product.
They are made in the lab and is considered as one of the most safe moisturisers especially for dry skin.
Zinc gluconate is anti bacterial which helps prevent acne breakouts.
This ingredient helps treat itching and irritation on our skin and promotes skin repair and healing.
It also has the ability to control excess sebum production which certainly helps with those struggling with acne.
Consistent use of zinc gluconate encourages cell regeneration and thus improves skin quality and texture.
Tocopherol (Vitamin E)
An antioxidant that also works as a great moisturiser.
It helps protect the skin against the free radical damage caused by the UVB rays of the sun.
Anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties shown by this ingredient is good for acne prone skin as it inhibits acne causing bacteria from wrecking havoc on the skin.
Works to improve the defence mechanism of the outer layer of the skin.
Ceramides prevents moisture from escaping the skin’s surface.
These molecules not only keeps our skin hydrated but also repairs the skin’s barrier.
Ceramides are naturally prevent in our skin But, due to various reasons or even aging we tend to lose ceramides. This decrease in ceramides does result in dryness of the skin.
Provides moisturising as well as anti-aging benefits
Half a pea size amount is enough for your face
Provides instant relief for dry itchy skin
Makes skin soft and supple
Deep moisturises the skin
Hydrates for long duration
Moisturises dry patches
Works great for sensitive skin
Best suited for winter season
Heals flaky skin, redness, dry patches and scaly skin
Suitable for face and body
Price is on the higher side BUT it is worth every penny 🙂
At times, this feels heavy on my skin. Maybe the mineral oil and glycerine just sits o top of my skin. So less is more in this case OR your skin may feel suffocating and uncomfortable.
Honestly It does leave bit of stickiness and a greasy layer behind.
