Sodium PCA 50%
CAS No. 54571-67-4

Sodium PCA is the sodium salt of pyroglutamic acid (also known as PCA). PCA is a naturally occurring component of human skin and a part of the "natural moisturizing factors" (NMF) that maintain a healthy epidermis. Sodium PCA is very hygroscopic, attracting moisture from the air. It imparts a moist feeling to hair and skin. Sodium PCA applied to the skin is absorbed to a limited extent. It is non-comedogenic, nonirritating to the eye and skin -- even at concentrations up to 50%, and does not contribute to phototoxicity or sensitization. It is rapidly biodegradable. Soluble in water and ethanol and insoluble in oils, it is used for its powerful humectant properties in many skin and hair care products including gels, creams, lotions, shampoos, conditioners, lipsticks and foundations.

Our Customers Say...
I have to admit, the products are well packaged, but the adorableness of the little containers makes me go, "awwww," when I start to formulate.

All cute aside, I love LotionCrafter. I can get products here I have a hard time sourcing at rates I'm willing to pay. I don't want to buy huge amounts of anything when I'm making initial formulations. I want to use small amounts to decide if something should be in my line. I can go small, or huge and that makes me feel confident that I can source what I need in amounts I can purchase.

I can get silicones here I can't find anywhere else and I've made my own primer that's head and shoulders above anything else I've ever purchased for any amount of money.

I am in love and I have large orders planned over the next few months. Thank you.

Jen, I don't know how you do it- I order on Monday and my order is here on Wednesday, literally across the country! Your products are top notch,too.
Kim

Great Service! I recently placed my second order with you and I was really amazed at the speedy delivery and the professional customer service with processing my order. Will definitely order again! Thank You!
Julie B, (Safiya Botanicals)

Fastest and nicest service ever. Ordered the Shea nilotica yesterday and Jen wasn't kidding. This is some luxurious shea. Very rich and creamy, not grainy at all and hardly a scent compared to others I've used. Impressed that the delivery made it in a day and of the care and time taken to change and fix my order....the morning of! The measuring tools were just a bonus for a professional first purchase experience, thank you so much.
Angela

I love this company.Not only do they have a great selection, great prices and very reasonable and fast shipping. They gave me a price adjustment that I don't even know I had coming ! Not only did they adjust the price of the item, but they adjusted the shipping charges as well, AFTER I had already received the product ! If lotioncrafter had soaping supplies, I wouldn't go anywhere else. This company has Integrity. Love lotioncrafters !
