PGA for Ultimate Hydration
The ingredient that holds even more moisture than Hyaluronic Acid!
Keeping skin properly hydrated is essential for maintaining a healthy, vibrant and more plump 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.
Skin that is hydrated and healthy ages less quickly
Dryness and dehydration, if not addressed, will turn into accelerated ageing and wrinkles
PGA (Polyglutamic Acid) is a peptide 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 by contributing to the maintenance and improvement in 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 and will absorb quickly.
Skin benefits of PGA.
A hydration wonder, this naturally occurring substance not only holds many times its weight in water, is also known to fight free radicals and improve the skin’s production of collagen to plump skin and also help with wound healing.
-Soothes and restructures the protective barrier of the skin.
-Keeps the skin hydrated.-Stimulates collagen and long term moisture retention.
-A natural humectant (water attracting, so draws water from the lower skin cell layers upwards) so assists 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.
How to introduce PGA into your skincare regime.
PGA in the form of a serum is most effective and concentrated
Combine PGA ingredient with other ingredients particularly hyaluronic acid for maximum hydration
