We love NaPCA and love that you can find it in several Sanitas Skincare products!
What the heck is it, you ask? NaPCA is a component of the skin that is (in part) responsible for moisture retention. This ingredient can easily absorb massive amounts of water like a sponge and reserves it for the skin cells to use as needed. NaPCA works by retaining the water already in your skin, and by attracting moisture from the atmosphere to your skin. It is completely non-toxic to boot!
Na (Sodium) PCA (pyrrolidone carboxylic acid) is naturally found in the skin and is responsible for keeping moisture content from dehydrating. It is naturally taken from the fermentation process of soybeans and mimics the existing NaPCA in the skin. Therefore, the ingredient is what you’d call Biogenic – a botanical copy of an ingredient naturally found in the human body.
