Sodium pyroglutamate is naturally produced by our bodies as one of the components that helps slow down water loss. Sodium PCA can be used to add moisture to a variety of formulations.
How to use it
Beginner: Add up to 1 tube to 4 oz of your favorite base cream or water-based serum.
Advanced: This ingredient is recommended for use between 1-4% in formulations with a final pH of 4-6. This ingredient can work in creams, lotions, serums, and other products but is best tolerated by formulas thickened with gums like xanthan or sclerotium. It can also work with polyacrylamide, acrylates, and carbomer based thickeners when used at lower concentrations. Sodium PCA can cause precipitation or loss of viscosity depending on the formulation it is being added to. For best results, this ingredient should be added during the cool down phase of formulation.
Store in a cool, dark environment for best results.
