Like Dessert for the Skin: Meet Ultra-Rich Cream

It’s finally here! Meet our Ultra-Rich Cream, the newest addition to our woods_ family of skin-optimizing products.

Specifically formulated to comfort and restore dry skin while strengthening a compromised skin barrier, this dense formula of yumminess for the skin works its magic to leave your skin visibly changed. 

Read along to discover all the benefits that can now become part of your daily regimen.

The formula your skin has been craving

Your skin works hard every day to protect you, so you should do your best to return the favor. A compromised barrier will leave the skin more vulnerable to extraneous threats and therefore also the harsh effects they can promote, like dryness, irritation, and painful cracks.

Our Ultra-Rich Cream is multipowered by 3% niacinamide, 2% vitamin C, and hyaluronic acid to support the skin’s barrier and enhance hydration to improve the skin’s overall health. Let’s dive into the ingredients that make it work:

Niacinamide is a powerhouse of an ingredient that offers the skin multiple benefits, from visibly reducing the appearance of enlarged pores to improving uneven skin tone and elasticity to boosting the skin’s barrier strength. 

Vitamin C brightens dark spots and uneven skin tone, accelerates the skin’s natural collagen production and neutralizes skin-damaging free radicals to preserve and strengthen the skin’s barrier.

Hyaluronic acid is a powerful, moisture-binding ingredient renowned for its ability to deliver and retain water in the skin’s deepest layers, leaving a plump appearance and buttery-soft feel. 

Natural blueberry oil and lipids from microalgae form a protective mantle to help prevent the effects of stress and pollution from settling on the skin.

Essential fatty acids hydrate and help soothe and regenerate the skin while protecting it from external stressors to prevent premature signs of aging and maintain skin health.

With its creamy consistency and deeply nourishing formula, it’s safe to say our Ultra-Rich Cream will be like dessert for the skin after your daily rituals, leaving your complexion satisfied inside out. If dry and cracked skin is a typical concern of yours, this cream might just be what your skin has been craving. Use it in your AM or PM routine – or both.

Ultra-Rich Cream, ultra-satisfied skin

With its highly potent formula, a little goes a long way with this wonderworker. The size of a blueberry – that’s the amount that it takes to obtain the comforting effects and silky-soft results. And at woods_, you’re allowed to demand some extra benefits from your daily moisturizer.

Therefore, our Ultra-Rich Cream not only delivers a nourishing dose of replenishing hydration, but the combination of antioxidative and collagen-stimulating ingredients will also work to keep your skin protected, soothed, and preserve its youthful glow. All in all? Everything our skin adores – bottled up.

The purpose of our Ultra-Rich Cream is to retain the nourishing oils deep within the skin to prevent them from resting on the skin’s surface topically and thus oxidate throughout the day. When oils oxidate, they contribute to free radicals, which accelerate the skin’s aging process as well as its sensitivity. Therefore, you shouldn’t be surprised when the cream doesn’t provide a glazed look from it laying superficially on the skin’s surface – but instead dives deep into the skin layers to leave a matte, silky appearance.

Quick Q&A: All you need to know about our new arrival

We’re always prepared for a pop quiz on our products, as transparency and honesty forms the best foundation for choosing just the right products for your skin. So, let’s delve into it!

What does it mean that the formula is highly potent?

When a formula is highly potent, it means that it contains a high concentration of active ingredients. Active ingredients are the ingredients that perform in your skin and cause your skin to change (for the better). In other words, these will have a strong and effective impact on the skin or the condition, the formula is designed to address. In this instance, they’ll help prevent dry, flaky, and cracked skin and enhance a smooth and luminous complexion.

Does Ultra-Rich Cream contain fragrance?

No – our Ultra-Rich Cream is completely fragrance-free.

Is Ultra-Rich Cream suitable for combined and oily skin?

If you have combined skin, some areas of the skin (often the T-zone) will be oily, while you’ll experience dry patches here and there on your skin. Our Ultra-Rich Cream contains a non-comedogenic formula, meaning it won’t clog pores and, therefore, won’t be a disturbance to oily areas.

In short, this cream is suitable for all skin types – but particularly good for dry to very dry skin. If you have oily and breakout-prone skin, but prefer a more lightweight consistency, our 24-Hour Hydra Gel, Daily Hydra Cream (Sensitive), or Daily Mineral Gel are also perfect for the job. It’s all about preference!

Should I shift to Ultra-Rich Cream during winter?

Again, this is a matter of preference and your unique skin type. However, it can be highly beneficial to opt for a richer cream during the colder months, as harsh weather can worsen existing concerns like dryness. Ultra-Rich Cream can serve as a pivotal part of your routine all year round, especially if you have dry skin, but can be particularly enriching during winter, when our skin tends to long for an extra boost.

What are the benefits of Ultra-Rich Cream – summed up?

In short, Ultra-Rich Cream can help fend off premature signs of aging, defend the skin against stress and pollution, strengthen and comfort a compromised barrier, and apply intense hydration to leave softer, smoother skin with every application – with a matte finish.

But that's not all! Because of its enriching oil composition, this cream also provides potent nourishment for lashes and eyebrows, as the oils dive deep into hair follicles to optimize the quality of hair strands and strengthen their resilience.
