Sodium PCA

I’m a humectant and moisturiser that helps keep skin hydrated and healthy.

Technical Term
Sodium Pyroglutamic Acid
Ingredient Class
Sidekick Ingredients

I’m a sidekick: I help assist active ingredients by enriching different formulas to make them even more awesome.

I help skin retain moisture to keep it hydrated, soothed, and smooth.

How I'm made

I’m a naturally hydrating agent derived from the sugarcane plant.

How I work

Don’t let my complicated name fool you: I’m just a simple, powerful moisturiser that works has a humectant, which means I help your skin hold moisture in, so you feel smooth and soothed. I can absorb water up to 70% of my weight! I help maintain hydration over time and I help reduce dryness and irritation—I’m gentle and effective for sensitive skin too, BTW.

Fun fact

I’m naturally occurring in your own body: PCA is something you can find in human skin and is considered part of the "natural moisturizing factors" (NMF) that maintain a healthy epidermis.
