Calcium PCA is the calcium salt of PCA (pyrrolidone carboxylic acid), which is a vital element of the skin’s natural moisturizing factor (NMF). It strengthens and repairs the skin’s barrier by protecting skin collagen. When applied topically, calcium PCA works to replenish skin’s barrier and to attract moisture to skin’s uppermost layers and help retain it there.
1. Hydrates skin
As a key component of the skin’s NMF, calcium PCA works as a humectant to hydrate and plump the skin.
2. Replenishes skin
Calcium PCA can encourage cellular cohesion, thus reinforcing the epidermis and improving skin barrier function to prevent trans-epidermal water loss and provide lasting hydration.
Calcium PCA is beneficial for all skin types, including dry and sensitive skin, as it boosts hydration and strengthens the skin barrier.
Calcium PCA can be safely incorporated into your current skincare routine. It can increase skin hydration when used with other moisture replenishing ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid and glycerin.
Calcium PCA can be used up to twice per day.
