When I formulated the Système 41 Moisturizing Hand & Body Crème, I tried to include as many nutrient dense, beneficial ingredients as possible to maximize its efficacy — and minimize the amount of time you have to spend applying the product. One ingredient I knew I had to include was coconut oil. Coconut oil has been increasing in popularity lately, and for good reason. It's great for your skin, especially since it helps it retain water.
In fact, a study published in the International Journal of Dermatology found that coconut oil is so powerful, it can even help improve the skin of people suffering from atopic dermatitis. In this inflammatory skin condition, the skin isn't able to hold water well, so it's hard to keep it moisturized. The study found that using coconut oil improved participants' ability to hold water in the skin by 20 points. Those using mineral oil as a moisturizer saw only a 10-point improvement. Even better, those using the coconut oil saw a 68% reduction in their atopic dermatitis over the course of two months, compared to only 38% for the mineral oil group.

Some people use coconut oil as a moisturizer, in conjunction with several other products. But if you use Système 41, you get all the benefits of coconut oil plus many other great ingredients. One of those is pea extract, an active botanical extract from seeds of the pea plant. This extract keeps protease enzymes from degrading skin proteins such as collagen and elastin (responsible for our skin's firmness and elasticity).
Pea extract naturally protects our skin from UV light and chemical abuse. One study demonstrated significant improvement in skin elasticity — as much as 15% after just three weeks of application. Another found that the seed coating of pea plants is full of powerful antioxidants. With all the attacks our skin has to fight off from the sun and polluted environments, I wanted to give it every weapon I could to mop up free radicals and keep skin healthy and vibrant.
The combination of coconut oil and pea extract means that your skin will stay both protected and moisturized. You don't have to use multiple products to get these separate benefits — they're all packaged together for you. And of course, these are just two of the many powerful ingredients found in the Système 41 Moisturizing Hand & Body Crème. I'll tell you more about some of the other ingredients in future alerts.
