A plant based natural carbohydrate complex otherwise known as Saccharide Isomerate and found in stratum corneum. It is highly substantive to skin, binding itself to keratin like a magnet. It stimulates key genes to improve skin barrier function, and a variety of in vivo studies confirm its ability to strengthen the skin barrier and maintain deep hydration for 72 hours. This imparts a soothing action that, due to its unique binding mechanism, is not lost when contained in rinse-off products.
PENTAVITIN® is a highly effective moisture regulator that functions under the driest conditions where traditional moisturising agents and humectants lose their effectiveness and has shown to reduce dryness and irritation caused by the use of AHAs.
