Plant-based Glycerin: A renowned skincare ingredient that works as a moisture magnet and pulls essential moisture into skin. It is highly compatible with skin and also creates a “reservoir effect”, enhancing the water-holding capacity of the skin and ultimately helping to provide skin elasticity and plumpness and facilitates epidermal barrier function. The glycerin used in this formula is plant-based and can be derived from sources including palm fruit, rapeseed and coconut. .


Panthenol is a penetrating moisturizer which absorbs into the skin and hair and is converted into Pantothenic Acid, a B complex vitamin. Assists skin care products in retaining water and also absorbs water from the air, aiding in skin and hair moisturization.

Wheat Germ Oil

Wheat Germ Oil, extracted from the germ of the wheat kernel, is an emollient with antioxidant properties due to its high, natural Vitamin E content. It also contains Lecithin and a high percentage of essential fatty acids that are vital for healthy skin. It is also used as a natural preservative.

Best Answer: Haven't tried the first but have the ultra. Not quite as emollient as I need for my dry skin but they are all great. Just my personal preference.

Can I use this product as a sun protection?
A shopper on Apr 11, 2015
Best Answer: I never did like this. And I don't think it can be used as a sun protection. But I do believe that this product is pretty good to make your face keep moisture. After used 2 month, my skin was greatly improved from dark face. I like it and will continue to use it.

Is this product good for combination skin?
Maeda S on Jan 26, 2015
Best Answer: Yes, be sure to thoroughly cleans your face. Then use a gentle astringent especially in oily areas. Then use plenty of Panthenol protein moisturing Face Cream all over your face and neck. I only use at night before bed. Use good moisturing sun block during daytime.

can men use this ?
A shopper on Oct 18, 2012
Best Answer: Absolutely!! I've been using this fantastic moisturizer for my dry, sensitive skin for over ten years and introduced it to my boyfriend about 6 months ago. He loves it so much that he keeps a spare on hand so that he never runs out!! It's best for a man or woman with somewhat to severe dry skin, or to be used at night as it does have a heavier consistency than most of the other face moisturizers.

Best Answer: I am 60 years old and also have dry skin. I use Kiehls protein pantheon every night after washing my face and it makes my skin very soft. I do not have many facial wrinkles yet and I attribute that to my use of Kiehls products and a good sunscreen.
