Why Your Skin Needs It
If you have delicate, dry, sensitive skin that is easily irritated—red, stingy or itchy—cica can help calm you down. Cica, also known as Centella asiatica, is a leafy green herb rich in fatty acids, vitamins and amino acids. It’s been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine to treat redness and inflammation thanks to its effective healing and soothing properties.
The Clinique Expertise
Very dry skin is damaged skin, which means it not only needs to be soothed, but also repaired. Moisture Surge Intense 72H Lipid-Replenishing Hydrator combines cica with lipids, hyaluronic acid, and activated aloe water to repair, strengthen and balance your skin barrier. This makes your skin less reactive for more consistent great skin days.
Good To Know
Cica is also called Tiger Grass because tigers are known to rub it on their skin to help heal a wound.
