Saccharide Isomerate - Pentavitin
DESCRIPTION: Saccharide Isomerate (also known as Pentavitin, 72hr Moisture, Cellynkage, etc) is a bio-based carbohydrate complex derived from 100% plant sources. The carbohydrate complex is very similar to the carbohydrates found in human skin. Saccharide Isomerate is priced in skincare because of its long-lasting, hydrating and moisture-boosting properties. It can keep the skin hydrated for up to 72 hours.
Saccharide Isomerate binds well to skin cells and provides deep hydration. Dry skin inhibits the proper functioning of the skin. A well-hydrated skin enhances cell-to-cell communication (epidermal and dermal), which is an important aspect of cell growth, differentiation, and homeostasis. Saccharide Isomerate is also able to boost the production of hyaluronic acid within the skin - hyaluronic acid is a major component of the skin responsible for a supple appearance.
- In just 3 hours after a single application of saccharide isomerate, excessively dry skin areas were much better hydrated. Moreover, when used twice every day over a 28 day period, all facial areas benefited from better hydration and a calming or stressed urban skin.
- In another study, Saccharide Isomerate boosted hyaluronic acid production in the skin by up to 66%.
- A 28 day clinical trial on volunteers age 44 to 56 years showed that Saccharide Isomerate reduced the appearance of wrinkles by up to 79.3%
- A clinical study showed that within two weeks of daily application, Saccharide Isomerate improved skin smoothness and softness by 50% while also reduced the flakiness, itchiness and tightness commonly associated with dry skin by 50%.
Saccharide Isomerate is beneficial for the overall health and youthfulness of the skin. In hair care, it is able to relieve itchy and dry scalp and help in preventing flaky scalp.
Vegan and 100% natural, this sugar-based humectant is also suitable for all skin types. It can also reduce potential irritation of products, such as those with Hydroxy acids or surfactants.
