We use soy lecithin in our creations.
Moisturising: Stearic acid in lecithin helps improve moisture retention and increase skin's flexibility. It also contains lovely linoleic acid which offering great moisturising effect and can help restore a damaged skin barrier.
Hydrating: Choline in lecithin has been shown to increase skin hydration, so it can act as a natural humectant, pulling moisture from the air and trapping it close to the skins tissues.
Protective: In one study, the application of lecithin to skin increased water retention by 40% and it lasted about 2.5 hours! Another ingredient in lecithin - inositol - has been shown to decrease trans-epidermal water loss in animal studies. It's also been shown to increase moisture retention in our hair.
