Saccharide Isomerate

Saccharide Isomerate is a 100% plant-derived carbohydrate complex that functions as a water-binding agent (humectant), emollient, and skin replenisher.

It is an effective moisturiser containing natural carbohydrates found in the stratum corneum. It binds to the free amino groups of lysine which is present in keratin in the stratum corneum. Saccharide isomerate provides long-lasting moisturization for up to 72 hours.
