What does this mean?

INCI: Saccharide Isomerate, Aqua, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate.

Short Description:

A natural deeply intensive moisturiser that has an instant effect along with a gradual longer term result. Suitable for use in skin and hair products.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A clear to slightly yellow to amber coloured, viscous liquid made from plant derived glucose and fructose whereby the atoms are so arranged as to be identical to the carbohydrate complex found in human skin. This means that it binds with the natural skin complex enabling deep and lasting hydration.

There are many humectants available that pull moisture to them but Saccharide Isomerate Plus is the first product we have that pulls moisture from the atmosphere and product rather than the skin, therefore ensuring deeper hydration. The carbohydrate complex that makes up Saccharide Isomerate Plus binds to the keratin layer (skin and hair) and transfers the property of restoring water to the keratin so that binding property can no longer be washed out. When this product is used on a regular basis, a cumulative effect exists that is only removed by exfoliation or natural shedding of the skin cells. This way, you not only get an immediate effect but a long lasting and substantial effect.

Tests showed that using just 1% of Saccharide Isomerate Plus in a skincare product reduced the signs of dry skin by 20% when used over a 4 week period.

The massive improvement stayed for 72 hours after the last application in that trial.

Central heating, frequent washing, swimming & sunbathing can all dehydrate the skin leading to itchy and tight feeling skin conditions. Saccharide Isomerate Plus is very desirable in a wide range of products as it counteracts these conditions.

It is 100% natural, plant derived with Ecocert approval and NaTrue certification.

Saccharide Isomerate Plus does not contain preservatives so you should take care not to contaminate it.

HOW TO USE IT

Skin Care

It boosts the Natural Moisturising Factor (NMF) of the skin and stimulates the synthesis of ceramides.

It improves and strengthens the skin barrier function and studies have shown that it gives deep hydration that lasts for 72 hours. In creams, lotions, gels and serums, it leaves the skin feeling soothed, hydrated and cared for, alleviating feelings of dryness, taut skin, itching and flaking. This is beneficial for all skin types but especially in products for dry skin, sensitive skin, mature skin and anti aging creams, lotions and serums.

In cleansers and treatment masks, it has a unique skin identical carbohydrate structure that allows it to bind with the skin so that even when the product has been rinsed off, the effects of Saccharide Isomerate Plus are still working in the skin keeping it hydrated, soothed and more resilient.

Reduces the potential for irritation in AHA peeling gels and face masks.

Excellent to use in hand creams for nurses and hairdressers who use soaps and detergents frequently.

Highly effective in foot creams as it binds to the hard skin to hydrate it.

Hair Care

Tests have shown that it imparts a soothing action for 72 hours even in a rinse off product. This is exceptional and will help alleviate itchy and taut feeling scalps.

It has a unique skin identical carbohydrate structure that allows it to bind with the scalp, even when the product has been rinsed off such as in a conditioner or treatment pack.

Other

Use 1% to 5%.

For skincare products, use 1% to 5%.

In a body wash, we suggest using 1% as it is a rinse off product.

For hair care products, use 1% in a shampoo and 1% in conditioners and treatment packs as they are both rinse off products.

Water soluble so cannot be used in oil only products.

Heat stable up to 60°C so we recommend adding it in Stage 3 (cool down stage) when making creams and lotions.

It is stable in a finished product pH range of 3 to 6.5.

As this product contains no preservative, it is prone to contamination if handled carelessly. Store it in the ‘fridge if you can and never leave the bottle open whilst you are working.

Adds an extremely elegant skin feel along with intense hydration in all creams and lotions.

Excellent to use in body washes to build up natural hydration of the skin.
