Botanical Hyaluronic Acid (Cassia Angustifolia)
Cassia Angustifolia Seed Polysaccharide is a botanical ingredient retrieved from the Cassia Angustifolia (Senna), a native plant to India. Its high concentration of polysaccharides makes it a very effective skin moisturizing agent.
These polysaccharides mimic hyaluronic acid, a component of the skin which assists tissue repair and protection. When applied topically this plant-based hyaluronic acid penetrates the dermis to secure moisture and in turn support the skins elasticity and structure. Not only is hyaluronic acid directly correlated to increases in skin moisture, it can adjust its moisture absorption rate based on the humidity of the environment.
This natural extract also functions as an anti-inflammatory and a treatment for acne.
