Urea: is a substance with humectant properties and part of the natural skin moisturizing factor (NMF), a group of organic substances lying beneath the stratum corneum, having the task of binding and retaining water in the extreme superficial layers of the epidermis. Since in the various dry skin situations its concentration tends to decrease, with the possibility of dehydration and further cracking occurring, topical application is useful for providing continuous hydration. Moreover, even in low concentrations, urea allows for a keratolytic reaction of the stratum corneum, loosening the adherence of the corneocytes, encouraging exfoliation and the exposure of the underlying, more hydrated, softer and smoother cell layer. This process contributes to cell renewal and helps in the healing process of the skin.
Hyaluronic Acid: is a polysaccharide belonging to the glycosaminoglycans group and is a major component of the connective tissue. It acts as a humectant in the skin: thanks to its high hydrophilicity, it binds and retains a large number of water molecules, ensuring the natural moisturizing of the skin. It is useful in topical products as it forms a thin film that keeps the skin smooth and moisturized. Since it plays an important structural role together with collagen and elastin, when applied to the skin, its smaller molecules are able to penetrate, giving structure and firmness to the tissues.
Panthenol: applied locally is absorbed by the skin and converted into pantothenic acid. It
seeps easily into the epidermis, helps maintain the proper function of the skin barrier and, thanks to its hygroscopic property, improves cell moisturizing, elasticity and re-epithelization.
Saccharide Isomerate: is a natural carbohydrate complex having a composition quite similar to the carbohydrates present in the stratum corneum, the extreme superficial layer of the human skin, consisting of keratin. Saccharide Isomerate binds strictly to keratin of chondrocytes, which has barrier function and plays hydrating role, thus preventing skin desquamation. Moreover, it acts as a regulator of skin moisture, promoting effective and long-lasting effect of water retention in the epidermis.
