What it is: α-Amino Acid Complex is a mix of amino acids that are similar in composition to the skin. It maintains stratum corneum water content and provides nutrients to the skin cells. It protects collagen and prevents the skin from ageing. It is ideal for anti-aging, moisturising and nourishing skincare products. Interestingly, research has shown that synthetic amino acids often have greater hydrating ability than animal- or plant-derived amino acids.
How it works:
- Moisturises: We already have amino acids in the top layers of our skin and are part of what’s called our natural moisturizing factors, they work to keep our skin hydrated by pushing moisture through and into the skin. Adding amino acids to our skin topically, helps to alleviate this strain and boost the moisture transportation.
- Anti-Ageing: α-Amino Acid Complex plays a role in repairing visible skin damage, has antioxidant ability and can soothe skin, neutralizes damaging substances before they can harm skin, helps visibly firm skin’s surface by reinforcing its supportive elements and diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
