For the longest time, night time moisturisers have been thick. Its texture alone was a differentiating factor from day time creams. In fact, the concept of thick night creams hasn't changed for 100 years. The primary purpose of thick night creams has always been to prevent the excess loss of hydration through the skin at night time. And that is an important function, but there is more to skin than hydration at night.


Circadian pattern of the skin


The body has a 24-hour automatic clock that works with sunrise and sunset. Based on these sunlight signals, the body produces several hormones that regulate our hunger, sleep, digestion, alertness, happiness, repair, and many more. The skin is part of the same system, so it is affected by the internal clock too. At night, the skin carries out specific functions that are different from daytime

During the night, the skin enters the mode of cellular repair, regeneration and detoxification. There are other changes too, such as the acidity level of the skin, the pH, and the increase in body temperature that directly increases the skin's water loss (TEWL - Transepidermal Water Loss).


The problem with thick moisturisers 


The reasons why thick moisturisers can be damaging for the skin are numerous. Thick night moisturisers can suffocate the skin, prevent dead skin cells from shedding, decrease cell regeneration, inhibit barrier restoration, prevent skin lipid production and even increase wrinkles. Essentially, thick night creams prevent skin cells from performing their functions. 

The skin sheds more dead skin cells at night, so thick creams can sandwich those dead skin cells on to your skin, worsening the occlusivity, thereby hindering its cellular process. 

And although thick night creams can prevent water loss, in the long term, they can perpetuate skin dryness. Thick creams signal to the skin not to produce its own protective oils, encouraging your skin cells to become lazy and eventually dryer. This is the exact opposite of improving skin conditions like dryness. 

Because the skin loses more hydration at night, it is important to use a night moisturiser, but never thick


Light moisturiser


Exosome Advanced Night Cream is Skin Diligent’s solution to the above problems. It is a revolutionary light night cream. Light, but loaded with cutting-edge ingredients to support the functions of the skin overnight. The cream targets the regulation of cell hydration as well as the lipid components of the skin, therefore providing your skin with the hydration and moisturisation that you want from a night cream. However it does more than that. Its revolutionary ingredients ensure that the cell’s night functions of repairing, detoxifying, and regenerating are carried out, that new skin cells are created ‘fitter’ and that cells’ lives are extended. All this with 99.98% natural ingredients.


Exosomes, Epigenetics & Longevity... in a jar

Exosome Advanced Night Cream contains 2 ground-breaking epigenetic ingredients: exosomes, and a botanical biotech ingredient. Exosomes are the most sophisticated delivery systems ever discovered. Until not long ago, they were considered cellular debris. But recent advances in technology allowed for the discovery of their highly valuable cargoes. The exosomes in our cream carry RNAs that target the skin’s tight junctions, which are the proteins that ensure impermeability and skin barrier integrity. 

The other pioneering ingredient is a biotech botanical ingredient that promotes telomerase, which are enzymes responsible for the lengthening of telomeres (the best marker for cell longevity). Simultaneously, it targets several other hallmarks of ageing, such as inflammation, homeostasis of protein building, and the ability to promote gene expressions.

This light night cream boosts skin cell longevity, cell regeneration, and makes the cells more robust as they are created. All of this, while you sleep.
