Kiehl’s Since 1851’s #1 Moisturizer: Ultra Facial Cream, Now With SPF

Revered for its 24-hour hydration benefits and beloved by celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Cameron Diaz and Reese Witherspoon, Ultra Facial Cream is Kiehl’s Since 1851’s best-selling product worldwide. Now, Kiehl’s chemists continue to battle dry skin’s needs with the classic hydration formula, now with a new essential benefit: protection against UVA and UVB rays.

New Ultra Facial Cream Sunscreen SPF 30 imparts 24-hour hydration while helping to protect the skin with broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen filters, targeting a key environmental cause that leads to accelerated skin aging. This daily, light-textured cream leaves skin feeling comfortable even in harsh weather conditions. With continuous moisture replenishment throughout the day, skin looks and feels smoother and healthier. In fact, after 4 weeks of continued use, 91.4% of subjects felt that their skin looked healthier. Harnessing the power of Antarcticine, squalane and fountain plant, the formula helps boost skin hydration, improves skin barrier function and restores skin’s natural moisture balance to keep it feeling soft and supple.

To formulate Ultra Facial Cream Sunscreen SPF 30, Kiehl’s chemists used two signature Ultra Facial Cream ingredients, Antarcticine and squalane, coupled with hydration-boosting fountain plant and broad spectrum sunscreen filters.

Antarcticine: Purified from the microorganism Pseudoalteromonas antarctica, this glycoprotein originates in the very cold soil of Antarctica. Thanks to its physical characteristics, including anti-freezing properties, Antarcticine also protects the skin by stimulating the formation of elastin.

Squalane: A signature Kiehl’s ingredient derived from olives, squalane has emollient characteristics that allows it to coat the surface of the skin and help hold on to moisture.

Fountain Plant: Also known as Ophiopogon Japonicus Root Extract, this plant is native to Asia and is known to resist drought. The formula with Fountain Plant helps boost skin hydration and improve skin barrier function.

Clinical tests of the formula show that it provides 24-hour hydration to the skin, improves skin barrier functionality within one hour and helps protect skin from UVA and UVB rays.
