The Medik8 Moisturization Strategy
H.E.O. Balm is built on three principal moisturization elements: humectants (H), emollients (E) and occlusives (O). These are crafted into an optimized ratio to deliver exactly what extremely dry skin needs; high occlusivity and emolliency to provide a protective barrier across the skin's surface to keep moisture locked in tight.
Perfect for Dry Skin
Designed specifically for very dry or post-treatment skin, this ultra-rich cream works to provide all-day moisture and comfort. Perfect for those with very dry skin and for use after aesthetic procedures such as chemical peels, skin needling, lasers and microdermabrasion.
The gentle formula can be applied onto localized areas of extreme dryness or flaking, or massaged over the entire complexion for a deep moisturization treat.
How It Works
Post-treatment or extremely dry skin is exceptionally delicate and needs special attention. This is how H.E.O. Balm works, by replenishing the skin with primarily occlusives and emollients to help support the natural skin barrier.
Humectants work to draw water to the skin, to keep the surface infused with hydration, smoothing the appearance of the complexion.
Emollients work to support the natural skin barrier, leaving the skin feeling nourished and cared for.
Occlusives provide a protective barrier over the surface of the skin, to help to prevent excess water loss.
Overall, H.E.O. Balm leaves the skin feeling soft, supple and thoroughly moisturized.
How To Use
After cleansing in the morning and evening, apply a small amount of H.E.O. Balm where necessary.
Leave to absorb before applying sunscreen. Use more often if required.
Patch testing prior to use is advised. Refer to medik8.co/patch for an in-depth guide to patch testing.

The Science Behind
"H.E.O. Balm encompasses Medik8’s ultimate strategy to moisturization - combining humectants, emollients and occlusives in a moisture locking cream. Focussing primarily on emollients and occlusives, H.E.O. Balm aims to support the natural skin barrier. Emollients are made from long chains of fatty acids which can use their lipid properties to form a waterproof barrier on the skin surface. This helps to retain water. Occlusives are mainly oil-based, and are made up of large molecules which are too big to penetrate the skin. Instead they sit on the top of the skin surface and help to reduce transepidermal water loss (TEWL)."
