Polyglutamic Acid

What does it do?

Polyglutamic Acid is a humectant (meaning it draws in moisture to the skin) that promotes healthy skin repair. It has excellent moisturising properties and provides double-ended hydration, drawing moisture into the skin and increasing the production of natural moisturising factors (NMF) for long-term hydration. Its polymer structure helps to create a hydrating film on the surface of the skin.

Where does it originate from?

Polyglutamic Acid is found naturally in jellyfish. However, we use a vegan alternative derived from bioferments.

When should I use it?

This ingredient can be used day and night.

What skin type is it best suited to?

Polyglutamic Acid is a universal ingredient suitable for all skin types.

What does it work well with?

Polyglutamic Acid pairs well with Hyaluronic Acid to help hydrate and repair dry and damaged skin.

What else do I need to know?

Polyglutamic was discovered in jellyfish to prevent dehydration in water as it can hold more water molecules than Hyaluronic Acid.
