Occlusives are a type of moisturiser, often lipid based, that work to lock moisture into the skin. These work best on dry skins as they offer intense hydration but can block the pores, so oily skins should avoid products that contain Occlusives.

Lanolin, Shea Butter, Silicone and plant oils are all Occlusives and can be found in skin moisturisers such as creams, oils and serums.
