Why normal moisturizers don’t work properly in an airplane.

Dehydrated skin is a normal side effect of airplane travel. This is simply a result of the extremely dry air. The air in the plane is literally drier than in the Sahara desert, where the annual average humidity is just under 25%. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the air humidity in an airplane is only 20% compared to the 50 to 70% in which our skin feels good.


Under these conditions alone a commercial moisturizer has a hard time, if you take other factors like the low air pressure, the UVA-radiation and germ as well as bacterial load you can quickly understand where the problem lies.


A normal moisturizer unfortunately has no chance to work properly, as the moisture is usually already extracted from the air before it has penetrated the top layer of skin.

The right cream must be very moisture-intensive, long-lasting and quickly absorbed to work properly in an airplane. 


Exactly these 3 criteria are covered when using the Avionox Serums. Due to very moisture-intensive ingredients such as shea butter, the dried skin is immediately provided with the required hydration. In order to prevent the moisture from being extracted directly from the dry air, water-binding ingredients such as hyaluronic acid seal in the boost of moisture in the skin.
