To make an effective moisturizer, everything depends on combining high amounts of two ingredients—glycerin and a powerful moisture barrier.
However, adding glycerin makes a lotion heavier and stickier. Adding a moisture barrier makes a lotion feel greasier. As a result, many moisturizer brands simply use less of each ingredient. They achieve a lighter, creamier lotion, but without the strong moisturizing powers of a truly beneficial lotion.
When Melaleuca scientists set out to create Renew, they found a different solution—a breakthrough technology that made it possible to mix glycerin and a moisture barrier in high amounts in a lotion that was still light and pleasant-feeling. It's the world's absolute best long-term solution for chronic dry skin.
