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.

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)

As a maker of high quality oils and incenses, sachets and other scented goodies, I cannot speak highly enough of how satisfied I am to be able to come here, find exactly what I need, put in my order and its in my mailbox so swiftly I wonder if you are sleeping on cots waiting for us to hit that order button. (just kidding). It *is* nice to know when I am running low on a product, I can place my order and know I have no worries; my goods will arrive swiftly, and undamaged and exactly what I ordered; every time. I am so glad I found your site; you have a customer for as long as I can continue to make all the goodies I make. Thank you so much!
Mrs. Cindy Lamprecht, (Harvest Moon Haven)

I have been buying products from lotioncrafter since 2012 (I think? maybe longer?).

Why?

Because they run a fantastic business, one.

Two, because they are some of the friendliest people in the cosmetic supply business.

Three, because they sell everything at a fair price, which is important when you are sourcing things for a boutique beauty brand like mine.

Four, because they have things I cannot get in small quantities anywhere else.

They are friendly, efficient, sell ethical products and just run a great business. I'm proud to be a customer, I'm glad they are one of my suppliers, and I don't forsee that changing anytime soon. Thanks for being awesome, LotionCrafter!
