This type of cream was designed to help remove makeup and its buildup while giving skin a smooth appearance. Typical ingredients found in cold creams include mineral oil, borax, emulsion of water, etc. Many cold creams are known to be incredibly rich, thick, and ultra-hydrating. Despite their richness, cold creams that are hypoallergenic and do not clog pores are available. This kind of cream is often recommended for those who are prone to drier skin, because it is such a heavy and moisturizing cream.
