Forget hyaluronic acid, there's a new humectant hero in town, and its name is Saccharide Isomerate. This plant-derived gem, found in our Aloe Hydrating Serum and Aloe Vitality Hydrating Toner, isn't just a trendy buzzword – it's a scientifically-backed powerhouse for skin hydration. So, strap on your lab coats, skincare nerds, because we're about to get technical.
Saccharide Isomerate isn't your average moisture magnet. Sure, it draws water like a champ, thanks to its unique hygroscopic properties, but its action goes beyond simple attraction. This complex carbohydrate complex mimics the skin's natural NMF (Natural Moisturizing Factors), mimicking their ability to bind and retain water within the stratum corneum. This translates to long-lasting, deep hydration that combats transepidermal water loss (TEWL), the fancy term for moisture evaporation.
But Saccharide Isomerate doesn't stop there. Studies have shown it possesses impressive film-forming abilities, creating a protective barrier on the skin's surface. This not only locks in moisture but also shields against environmental aggressors like pollution and harsh weather. The result? Smoother, plumper skin with a visible reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
Unlike some synthetic humectants that can sting sensitive skin, Saccharide Isomerate is a gentle giant. Its non-comedogenic nature means it won't clog pores, making it a dream ingredient for even the most delicate complexions. Plus, its plant-derived origins align perfectly with Aloderma's farm-to-skin philosophy.
Technical Specs for the Deep Divers:
- Obtained from corn starch through enzymatic isomerization.
- Composed of glucose, maltose, and maltotriose saccharides.
- Boasts a high water-binding capacity, exceeding even hyaluronic acid in some studies.
- Film-forming properties further enhance barrier function.
- Clinically proven to increase skin hydration by up to 200% and reduce TEWL by 25%.
Saccharide Isomerate isn't just a trendy ingredient – it's a science-backed powerhouse for long-lasting hydration, barrier protection, and visible skin improvement. So, why settle for anything less than the best? Let Aloderma's farm-to-skin magic, powered by nature's own humectant hero, take your skin to a whole new level of dewiness!
We hope this satisfies your thirst for technical details! Remember, Aloderma is all about bringing you science-backed, farm-to-skin care you can trust.
