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

Our Customers Say...
Great service!! Exceptional packing!! A++
Lynne

I have never been so moved to show appreciation as i am right now. i can't believe my order was so speedy; and with just the standard shipping too! i received it within 5d on the dot to Canada using USPS.

And if the service wasn't enough i must say i am completely in love with everything i ordered. I couldn't imagine the Shea Nilotica being much different from the standard shea you can get everywhere else but it's like night and day! i can't even look at my remaining shea anymore because it pales in comparison. the Shea Nilotica is so silky, never gets clumpy or grainy and goes on so smooth it felt like a spa treatment. My other favourite is the SheaAloe which at first seemed like a miss; i was expecting a thicker, more creamy feel but it's quite thin. What surprises me about it though is that even though it does not go on thick, it is incredibly incredibly moisturizing and is very readily absorbed into my thick african hair.

i'll be ordering more of the Shea Nilotica (the 5gallon bucket this time) and likely some product continers as well. Thank you once again for being awesome.

I just wanted to say how much I am liking my new Borosilicate Beaker, 2000ml & the large wire whip.
The wire whip is the best quality wire whip I have ever had..
I now want them all..
