This New Kiehl’s Cica Cream Is Perfect for Sensitive Skin Types
Having dry, sensitive skin can lead to a lot of unpredictability when it comes to skin care products. One wrong ingredient can send your skin into a tailspin and it’s downhill from there. That’s why when brands formulate products especially for sensitive skin we can’t help but be ecstatic. And not just any product, but a cica cream.
Don’t know what a cica cream is? Stick around. Ahead, we’re sharing everything there is to know about cica creams including a new formulation that just launched by Kiehl’s called Dermatologist Solutions Centella Cica Cream!
WHAT IS CICA CREAM?
Cica cream is first and foremost a moisturizer. Its name is derived from centella asiatica—also known as tiger grass—which is an ingredient found in all cica creams. Centella asiatica is an herb, and has been used for centuries in Chinese medicine. If you spot a cica cream that doesn’t have centella asiatica—or a derivative of it—in its ingredients list, it’s simply not a cica cream. Plain and simple.
Cica creams are on the rise with many of our favorite brands releasing iterations of them. Now Kiehl’s can join the ranks with its Dermatologist Solutions Centella Cica Cream.
