Humectant

Humectants attract water and bind water in skin layers, increasing the water holding capacity of the skin’s top layer, stratum corneum. By doing so, humectants are powerful hydrating agents. The best natural humectants are glycerine, honey, olive squalene, Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), and sodium hyaluronate (better known as Hyaluronic Acid).
