It’s time to take a deep dive into skincare science. A group of Kiehl’s researchers were in the Galapagos when they discovered abyssine, a molecule that thrives in the darkest depths of the ocean. Upon inspection in their lab, they found that this molecule’s ability to protect itself translated into a host of skin benefits—from fading wrinkles to neutralizing free radicals. They turned these findings into this all-time bestselling cream. The lush, quick-absorbing formula gives you all the benefits of its miraculous marine ingredient, and is suitable for even the most sensitive skin types.
How it Works
Sourced from microscopic algae, abyssine is a polysaccharide (read: natural moisturizer) found in hypothermal ocean vents that helps organisms survive extreme environments. When you use it on your skin, it delays the cellular aging process, softens stubborn lines, and helps protect against future damage. In addition to the star active, the formula is packed with vitamin-rich apricot kernel oil.
How to Use
Smooth a thin layer of this cream onto the clean skin of your face, neck, and décolleté. Use morning and night.
