PGA, a hydration hero for all skin types

The peptide that holds even more moisture than Hyaluronic Acid!

Keeping skin properly hydrated is essential for maintaining a healthy, vibrant complexion. As ageing occurs, the skin loses key structural components and protective barrier properties. This results in dryness, irritation and the creation of fine lines and wrinkles.

In summary,
Skin that is hydrated and healthy ages less quickly
Dryness and dehydration, if not addressed, will turn into accelerated ageing and wrinkles

PGA is sourced from NATTO (a fermented soya bean), this powerhouse ingredient captures and retains moisture by enhancing and extending critical Hyaluronic Acid functionalities by increasing the levels of natural moisturising factors, contributing to maintaining and improving the structural integrity of the skin.

Pga holds 5000 x its weight in water – 5 x more than Hyaluronic Acid

All skin types can feel the effects of dehydration, whether you are dry, combination or oily. When choosing a product with PGA generally they will suit all these skin types, especially if in a serum formulation as they tend to be water based so the texture is perfect (with smaller molecules) for quick and deep absorption.

Skin benefits of PGA

Soothes and restructures the protective barrier of the skin
Keeps the skin hydrated
Stimulates collagen and long-term moisture retention
Natural humectant (water attracting, so draws water from the lower skin cell layers upwards), assisting skin to stay hydrated particularly in extreme climates such as Winter air and heated environments
PGA forms a film on the skin that stops water from evaporating, so not only is it a humectant that draws more water into the cells, it holds it there too

A hydration powerhouse, the naturally occurring substance is known to hold 5,000 times its weight in water, fight free radicals and improve the skin’s production of collagen to plump skin and also help with wound healing.

How to introduce PGA into your skincare regime:

PGA in the form of a water-based serum is most effective and concentrated
Combine PGA with other ingredients particularly Hyaluronic Acid for maximum hydration

organicspa biohydra+ serum used regularly to address dehydrated skin and support mature complexions will infuse concentrated PGA and Hyaluronic Acid into the deeper layers of the skin. This will act as a preventative and rejuvenating booster. This is suitable for all skin types use daily 1 or 2 x under moisturiser.

Results - Fresh, plump, hydrated, smooth and more resilient skin. A hydration superhero!
