The INCI list of All Day Dreamer, day cream.

Because such an INCI list is not easy to read, I like the one of our bestseller, the All Day Dreamer moisturizer overflowing! It is not an endlessly long list of ingredients. But it does not completely and certainly define whether a product is good or bad! It mainly concerns the active substances and their percentage! I just prefer to have as few ingredients as possible, with each having a high percentage!

Aqua = very simple, this is water!
