Amino Acids in Skincare
These are what make up peptides and they work to maintain hydration and make the skin more supple and strong. Amino acids are naturally present in skin and help to encourage the skin to produce collagen and its own antioxidants. They work to heal the skin and strengthen the skin’s natural defense system.
Amino Acids also help to conduct water through the skin to keep it smooth and hydrated. There are lots of different types of Amino Acids so it will be really exciting to see which ones will be included in the formula.
B5 in Skincare
So B5 is also known as panthenol, and is used to hydrate, soothe and soften the skin. It also has a great anti-inflammatory benefit. Interestingly, B5 actually absorbs moisture from the air helping keep your skin even more hydrated.
