Meet PENTAVITIN®: Your Skin’s New BFF

We all love a skincare superhero, right? So when an exciting new discovery comes along, we can’t wait to give it a try. Meet PENTAVITIN®—aka, hydration’s hot new thing. So what is PENTAVITIN®? What’s the science behind the magic? And why should we seek it out in our skincare products? Time to find out.

So what is PENTAVITIN® exactly?

PENTAVITIN® (otherwise known as Saccharide Isomerate) is a 100% naturally-derived plant extract that’s bursting with hydrating properties, and gives improved skin protection against dehydration and sensitivity with every use. Its secret weapon? It binds deep within the outer layers of skin, meaning skin hydration continues long after application. This makes it a good moisturizer for dry skin. And unlike Hyaluronic Acid, it can’t be washed away.

How does PENTAVITIN® work?

Want to know a little more about the science behind the magic? Here’s how it works.

  • It mimics the natural hydration process, boosting the skin’s moisture retention capabilities
  • It’s a fraction of the size of most other hydrating ingredients, meaning it can penetrate deep into outer layers of skin
  • Its structure allows it to bind to the outer layers of skin, giving it instant and long-lasting hydration abilities
  • It can only be removed through the natural shedding of dead skin cells
