Sodium PCA 50%
CAS No. 28874-51-3

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.
 

Recommended Usage Rate: 0.2 - 4%
Appearance: Clear, syrupy liquid

Preservative:  None, product as supplied is unpreserved

Julie B, (Safiya Botanicals)

Jen, I have been wanting to say thank you in a very special way for a long time. I have been trying to switch as much of my business over to your shop as possible. Everyone talks about your fabulous customer service. But what I am most impressed about it how smart you are and the wide variety or products you have available for the small business, The quality of research you have posted on your site is not available anywhere else. Whenever I have a very difficult formulating problem to solve I come to your site. None of my other suppliers (many of whom I spend 100's of dollar a month with) can answer even simple questions. You have gotten back to me within minutes with very educated answers and suggestions. I feel like you have given me tools, resources, and base ingredients to really blossom. I am so grateful.

I've used Lotioncrafter on a number of occasions, and always found the products to be top quality and good value for money. Jen has always provided great support and helped me to straighten out problems with credit cards and delivery (I live outside the USA). I would recommend Lotioncrafter wholeheartedly to anyone seeking top quality cosmetic ingredients at affordable (and very competitive) prices. Thanks again Jen!
