What is Polyglutamic Acid?

Discover what Polyglutamic Acid is and its benefits in Charlotte’s supercharged skincare icons, Super Radiance Resurfacing Facial and Charlotte’s Magic Serum Crystal Elixir…

WHAT IS POLYGLUTAMIC ACID?

Polyglutamic acid is a humectant – a substance used to reduce the loss of moisture - derived from soybeans, and is a supercharged, powerful skincare ingredient with 4 X the HYDRATING POWER of hyaluronic acid.

Unlike hyaluronic acid, Polyglutamic Acid is made up of larger molecules which help to form a water-locking film over the skin when used in skincare, preventing waterloss and helping to retain moisture.

WHAT EXPERTS ARE SAYING ABOUT POLYGLUTAMIC ACID

GEORGIA LOUISE VASSANELLI

Globally-Renowned Aesthetician and Founder of the GEORGIA LOUISE Brand of Skincare and Skincare Technology

From a skincare standpoint, it is essential to have a product which hydrates over time. Charlotte’s Magic Serum Crystal Elixir contains Polyglutamic Acid which acts like pure water being constantly fed into the skin. After using Charlotte’s Magic Serum Crystal Elixir, my clients will touch their skin after 5-6 hours and still find it feeling plump, hydrated and soft to the touch. I personally have been amazed to find my skin still feels hydrated and dewy when I wake up in the morning after using Charlotte’s Magic Serum Crystal Elixir at night.

“Charlotte’s Magic Serum Crystal Elixir contains POLYGLUTAMIC ACID – an incredibly powerful natural moisturising agent derived from soy beans, which is proven to provide skin with FOUR TIMES the moisturising benefit of Hyaluronic Acid – within just 1 hour of applying the serum we can see a boost in skin’s moisture levels.”

As well as its moisturising benefits, due to the ingredient’s molecular structure also containing some larger molecules which do not penetrate the skin’s surface, Polyglutamic Acid creates an invisible ‘film’ around the skin which seals in moisture and causes skin to appear visibly plumper and firmer.”
