Skincando’s first product, Combat-Ready Balm, was made to soothe the irritated skin of soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, so you know founder Sara Damelio takes moisturizing seriously.

That’s apparent in her newest launch, a Vegan Miracle Cream made with apricot kernel oil, coconut oil, and a slew of other clean, nourishing ingredients—and collodial silver, a skin-tamer. It’s the only thing I put on my chapped face and hands since winter started that made my skin noticeably softer and more hydrated, almost immediately. (And I’ve tried a lot) And now that the thaw is coming, I realize my skin’s not a disaster. I only wish I knew about it before the first Polar Vortex.

Damelio has had a similar Miracle Cream for a while, but this new launch makes the luxe-feeling ultra-hydration available to those who aren’t cool with the fish oil in the original. (Although hardcore vegans be aware: it does contain beeswax.) —Lisa Elaine Held
