Described by scientists as the new anti-aging superstar!
Polyglutamic acid (PGA) is a fascinating molecule, a peptide derived from the polymerization of glutamic acid discovered in the 1930s in the marine jellyfish.
Hailed today as a true revolution in the cosmetic industry for its exceptional moisturizing properties, especially for dull, dry or dehydrated skin.
This ingredient is capable of restoring hydration and plumping the skin, while improving its elasticity, but also very effective in reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, or crow’s feet around the eyes.
A great ally for the driest skin, especially when exposed to low temperatures or when the weather is drier, bringing uneven hydration to the skin.
Obtained from the fermentation of soybeans, polyglutamic acid works by forming a protective film on the skin’s surface, increasing the production of natural moisturizing factors and improving water retention for naturally hydrated, smoother, brighter and fuller skin.
More hydrating than hyaluronic acid?
In fact, polyglutamic acid is about 5 times more effective than hyaluronic acid. While hyaluronic acid can retain up to 1,000 times its weight in water, polyglutamic acid is able to retain up to 5,000 times.
Thanks to its exceptional moisturizing properties, polyglutamic acid is today on the podium of the most powerful moisturizing actives on the market.
In conclusion, polyglutamic acid (PGA) is a versatile ingredient with numerous benefits for the skin and hair.
Used in a wide variety of anti-aging cosmetic products such as moisturizers, masks, serums, lotions, body milks and sunscreens for its moisturizing and anti-aging properties.
In addition, polyglutamic acid is also used in hair care formulas, such as shampoos, hair serums and masks, to improve hair texture and suppleness.
