Why We Love This Redwin Lotion With Sorbolene Cream

Have you heard about Sorbolene Cream? I never actually paid attention to it, until Nopai, who uses Redwin Sorbolene Moisturizer pointed out to me about it. She said that when she used to travel to Australia regularly, she would stock up on body lotions or creams from Australia because most of them will contain sorbolene cream. She finds it to be really moisturizing and keeping the skin hydrated for the whole day. Upon hearing this, being confined in an air conditioned room for the whole day, we couldn’t resist to give it a try and see what miracle it will give our dehydrated skin.

First thing that I noticed is that the smell. Iis a slight turn off – a combination of petroleum jelly and something else which reminds me of the chemist. It turns out that this lotion is fragrance-free, which is safer for sensitive skin. It feels that I have a thin moisturizing film surrounding my skin after application. But, throughout the day, my skin is indeed happily hydrated.

As I am reading more about sorbolene cream (which there isn’t much  information out there explaining what this ingredient is), I learned that it has special properties that would be able to moisturize the skin, while at the same time ,act as a protective barrier that blocks irritants. Sorbolene cream is a derivative of petro-chemicals; mineral oils and paraffin.

So, all in all, despite the odd feel of the scent, I definitely love this product cause it is very hydrating and leaves my skin feeling very soft and moist.

Next time I am buying a lotion, I’ll definitely keep an eye for those with  a sorbolene cream ingredient. I spotted this Redwin Sorbolene Moisturizer at the supermarkets that usually stock imported products such as Ranch Market and Kem Chicks.

Have you tried products containing sorbolene cream and what do you think about it?
