TIA Review by Nisha:
Avitalin's Time-Defense is an anti-aging daily hydrator billed as an "ultra-light" cream formulated for all skin types, and is included under Avitalin's "normal" skin type regimen. While I like this aloe-based moisturizer, I found it to be very rich and probably too heavy for certain skin types; thus, I likely would have slotted into the "dry" and/or "mature" skin type regimens. The moisturizer does take a few minutes to completely absorb; however, the long-lasting hydration and softness it provides, without feeling gooey or sticky, renders it worth the wait.
The richness and lasting hydration of this cream is due to the occlusive properties derived from sunflower seed oil, emulsifying wax and jojoba oil, which prevent trans-epidermal water loss. These ingredients are ideal for keeping moisture in dry, mature skin. Further, sunflower seed oil also has antibacterial properties. Meadowfoam seed oil is known not only for its moisturizing abilities, but also for providing ultra-violet protection.
I like the inclusion of phospholipids, as well as alpha lipoic acid (ALA). ALA is a universal antioxidant that fights future skin damage as well as repairs past damage by diminishing fine lines and boosting the efficacy of other antioxidants, such as vitamin C (ascorbyl palmitate) and vitamin E (tocopherol), which are also included in the formulation. Moreover, topical ALA reduces puffiness in the face and eye area and minimizes wrinkles and pore size.
Overall, I like Ms. Volod's approach (dubbed as "corneotherapy") which is to focus on maintaining the outermost layer of the skin, or the stratum corneum. Avitalin is free of skin irritants and pore cloggers like lanolin, synthetic perfume, petroleum, phthalates, formaldehyde, paraben preservatives, detergents, mineral oil and synthetic fillers.
