Skin Care Article: Skin Hydration. How Moisturizers Work
Issued February 15, 2014

Skin Hydration
how softening agents and moisturizers work

Near the surface of the skin the content of water is only 10% of the cell weight

Water concentration gradient in the skin is conditioned by constant moisture loss from the surface of the skin. Content of water in viable epidermal cells makes up to 70% of cell weight, in lower corneal layer it is 30% and near the surface of the skin the content of water is only 10% of the cell weight.

This is how softening agents and moisturizers work

Skin's natural moisturising ingredients are: urea, phospholipids as well as lactic, malonic, Glycosaminoglycans, Hyaluronic Acid and pyrrolic carboxylic acids.

Natural moisturizing ingredients retain water on the skin surface, connecting it, or affect cell protein configuration which results in water retention in the cells.

Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) are produced by the body to maintain structural integrity in tissues and to maintain fluid balance.
Hyaluronic acid is a type of GAG that promotes collagen synthesis, repair, and hydration.
GAGs serve as a natural moisturizer and lubricant between epidermal cells to inhibit the production of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs).
Topical Glycosaminoglycans supplements can help to provide temporary restoration of enzyme balance to slow or prevent matrix breakdown and consequent onset of wrinkle formation.

The Award Winning Anti Aging Facial Mask: "Glycosaminoglycans' Boom" may be used as an intensive rejuvenating course, as a one-off treatment to improve the skin's appearance, or before special occasions as desired.
