Saccharide Isomerate

* An emollient

* Also known as Pentavitin

Functions:

Saccharide Isomerate, which is marketed under the trademark name Pentavitin, is a water-binding agent and emollient, according to CosmeticsInfo.org. It is an effective moisturizer containing natural carbohydrates found in the stratum corneum of human skin. It binds to the free amino groups of lysine in the keratin of the stratum corneum, and cannot be washed off easily, leading to long-lasting moisturization (SkinInfo.com). It is also effective in dry hair and low humidity.

In tests done by CenterChem, producers of Pentavitin, in a 2 week study, 32% improvement was seen on the forearm and 40% improvement on the calf was seen after using test creams containing 1.5% concentration Pentavitin.

Safety Measures/Side Effects:

The Cosmetics Database finds Saccharide Isomerate to be a 100% safe ingredient, and no other studies were found that listed any negative side effects regarding this emollient, or Pentavitin.
