Zinc NMF

L-PCA
Active Ingredients:
Zinc
L-PCA
(L-pyrrolidone carboxylic acid)

Zinc has a critical role in the metabolism of one of the most important proteins in the epidermis called Filaggrin (filament aggregating protein). Metabolites of Filaggrin are NMFs (natural moisturizing factors) attracting water molecules and improving skin hydration.

The list of NMFs produced by the degradation of filament aggregating protein:

  • Amino acids including Glutamine, Arginine, and Histidine
  • Urocanic acid (UCA) also absorbs UV radiation, maintains skin pH
  • Pyrrolidine carboxylic acid (PCA) a potent humectant
