At Aloderma, we firmly believe in harnessing the power of nature's potent botanicals. But we also recognize that science can be a valuable ally in crafting truly exceptional skincare. That's where Polyisobutene comes in – a plant-derived, high-tech ingredient playing a key role in several of our most beloved moisturizing formulas.
Here's a deeper dive into the science behind Polyisobutene's magic:
Nature's Silky Shield:
Polyisobutene is a naturally occurring hydrocarbon polymer found in specific plants. We use a highly purified, hydrogenated form in our products. This unique molecule forms a thin, flexible film on the skin's surface, acting like a breathable, non-occlusive barrier. Its key properties include:
- Occlusivity: Polyisobutene impedes Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL), effectively trapping moisture within the stratum corneum, leading to increased skin hydration and improved elasticity.
- Film Forming: This film acts as a protective shield, deflecting environmental aggressors like pollutants and irritants, keeping your skin safe and healthy.
- Lubricity: Polyisobutene's smooth texture helps to reduce friction and prevent transepidermal water loss, contributing to a soft, supple feel.
Science Meets Nature:
The hydrogenation process of Polyisobutene enhances its stability and compatibility with other skincare ingredients. This allows us to formulate effective, lightweight, and non-greasy textures, ideal for all skin types, even sensitive ones.
The Aloderma Advantage:
At Aloderma, we believe in transparency and responsible sourcing. Our Polyisobutene is derived from renewable plant sources, aligning perfectly with our commitment to farm-to-skin practices. We further ensure its purity and safety through rigorous testing and adherence to strict ethical standards.
