Ingredient Description

Compound part of the Aquaxyl complex. It is the result of two plant sugars (glucose and xylitol) that are able to absorb and hold water.

The complex has been found to moisturize and restructure the skin, leaving a stronger Stratum Corneum able to combat harsh external conditions. It does so by boosting certain NMF components in the skin. Additionally, it limits water loss by improving the skin barrier with increased lipid and protein synthesis.
