Moisturiser is an essential part of every skincare routine, even the most simple, uncomplicated ones. Why? In a nutshell, it keeps your skin hydrated — and healthy, hydrated skin not only feels good, but it functions better. Find out what to look for in a moisturiser and browse the best face moisturisers.
The main job of face moisturiser is to help the outer layer of the skin to hold onto water. By doing that, moisturiser rehydrates the skin when it’s dry and prevents it from drying out again. If you’ve ever heard beauty experts say they switch to richer, more nourishing moisturisers in the cooler months, that’s why!
That’s not all. Moisturiser creates a barrier on top of your skin that seals in all the goodness from your other skincare products and locks in much-needed hydration. That barrier also stops your skin’s natural oils from evaporating, and protects your skin from harmful environmental elements, such as pollution. In simple terms, the best natural face moisturisers keep the good stuff in, and the bad stuff out. That’s why we always apply moisturiser last, after toners, mists, serums and face oils.
At INIKA, we believe that healthy ingredients are the key to clear, beautiful skin. Our products are infused with 100% natural and vegan ingredients that have proven benefits — and our moisturisers are no exception!
Like the rest of our organic skincare line, our natural moisturisers are made up of powerful plant-based extracts that soothe, calm and hydrate the skin. The star ingredient is Phytofuse Renew (aka Rose Jericho). Packed with antioxidants, it’s clinically proven to regenerate the skin and reduce the signs of ageing, such as dullness and fine lines. It also shields the skin from free radicals, and boosts its moisture levels.
Many of our hydrating moisturisers also contain Viniderm (aka Resveratrol or Grape Juice Extract), With the trifecta of antioxidant, anti=inflammatory and antibacterial properties, this ingredient reduces redness and brightens dull skin. Then there’s squalane, a skincare ingredient that’s buzzy for a reason! A hydration heavy-hitter, it strengthens the skin’s barrier and works to plump the skin. Maca Root adds radiance, and Lime Pearl (Caviar Lime) speeds up collagen production for smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
We’re clean beauty advocates, and our moisturisers are free from silicones, chemicals and nasties that can dry out and irritate the skin.
Moisturisers aren’t one-size-fits-all. The right one for you is based on your skin type and what it’s craving.

A natural moisturiser uses skin-loving ingredients to soothe and boost your overall skin health. With carefully designed formulas made up of enriching, natural ingredients, organic moisturisers can promote skin cell renewal and regeneration. This will not only soften the skin but brighten and rejuvenate your complexion.
Moisturising your face is one of the most important steps in any beauty routine. From helping maintain a balanced complexion to reducing the signs of aging, moisturising not only feels incredible but can also have long-lasting benefits. By keeping your skin hydrated, smooth, and clear, the use of a natural face moisturiser each day can prevent the development of wrinkles, blemishes, and fine lines in the future.
If you struggle with dry skin, there is a solution. Choosing a natural face moisturiser infused with hydrating ingredients like Aloe Vera and Hyaluronic Acid can help counteract the effects of dry skin. Also, investing in organic moisturisers, like our Phytofuse Renew Day Cream, allows you to benefit from a variety of skin-loving ingredients, carefully selected for their moisture retention and hydrating properties.
Moisturiser should be applied every time after cleansing your face, and applying any toner or serums. Take a pea-sized amount of moisturiser and gently massage into the skin using your fingertips. Continue this until it has all been absorbed.
To feel the full effect of a natural face moisturiser, you should use the product when your face is cleansed and prepped. That way the combination of natural ingredients will be fully absorbed, penetrating the deepest layers of the skin, and making sure to use an organic moisturiser both in the morning and at night will provide hits of hydration all day long.
