WHILE oil and water don’t mix, they can be made to blend into an emulsion—and become a way to nourish the delicate area around your eyes.
Most skin care creams are oil in water, but “our team of chemists chose a water-in-oil emulsion for Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado, as this texture provides longer-lasting, richer texture and bursts into water upon application,” explains Dr. Geoffrey Genesky, Head Chemist, Kiehl’s Research and Innovation Labs.
Ophthalmologist and dermatologist tested, Kiehl’s Since 1851 Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado is a rich preparation with a unique, concentrated texture and a burst of hydration upon application.
Facial moisturizers and other anti-aging products are typically too potent or not formulated for the delicate eye area. Avocado, with antioxidants, essential fatty acids and omega-3 oils, proved to be the right emollient to restore the skin’s natural moisture. In this cream, it’s mixed with shea butter, known for its hydrating properties, and beta-carotene, a naturally derived antioxidant.
