Btw, Xanthan gum is all natural, a chain of sugar molecules (polysaccharide) produced from individual sugar molecules (glucose and sucrose) via fermentation. It’s approved by Ecocert and also used in the food industry (E415).

Once inside the skin, it hydrates, but not from the outside – putting pure water on the skin (hello long baths!) is drying.

Good old water, aka H2O. The most common skincare ingredient of all. You can usually find it right in the very first spot of the ingredient list, meaning it’s the biggest thing out of all the stuff that makes up the product.

A big sugar molecule (polysaccharide) that is used as a natural thickening and gelling agent. It is similar to more commonly used Xanthan Gum, and the two are also often combined to create gel formulas or to stabilize emulsions.

It occurs naturally in certain fish and plant oils (e.g. olive), and in the sebum (the oily stuff our skin produces) of the human skin. As f.c. puts it in his awesome blog post, squalane's main things are "emolliency, surface occlusion, and TEWL prevention all with extreme cosmetic elegance". In other words, it's a superb moisturizer that makes your skin nice and smooth, without being heavy or greasy.

It’s not something new: it was introduced around 1950 and today it can be used up to 1% worldwide. It can be found in nature – in green tea – but the version used in cosmetics is synthetic.

On a global level, for every Doctor Babor CLEANFORMANCE product sold, BABOR plants a tree in the Babor Forest near the company headquarters in Aachen, Germany. Every. Product. Sold.

BABOR has always been super deluxe. It’s excellence as Europe’s No.1 beauty brand has been providing skin magic via plants and science since 1956. But the still family-owned company started long before they were official launched.

Here’s a beauty truism: The more raw and potent one gets when it comes to skincare ingredients, the more science and money it takes to extract them and, more importantly, sustainits actives throughout a serum or cream’s life.

One of their newest launches is Doctor Babor’s CLEANFORMANCE line with Phyto CBD Serum and Phyto CBD Cream ($64.95 ea.), containing potent doses of Phyto CBD, pre- and probiotics and hemp seed oil, pummeling our dermis with more than 95% naturally derived vegan ingredients. Real plants that penetrate at a cellular level for soothing, regenerating, aged-reversed skin. Amazing. Yes, it’s luxurious, but it’s priced nice and feels like it cost a fortune. You’ll totally get it at the very first application.


So, whether you were being retrofitted at a luxury alpine spa way back in the 1950s or just getting on board with plant-based skin treatments today, BABOR has always been eons ahead of the curve. TIP: Skincare junkies might enjoy the website’s “about us” with some terrific milestone anecdotes of firsts, including the brand’s renowned HY-ÖL two-step oil cleanse.

Where everything is somewhat new in the CBD beauty world, the trusted legacy brand BABOR removes the investigative guesswork with comfort and reliability in a perpetually crowded market.
