Sodium Lactate is a stronger humectant than glycerin with over twice the water holding capacity. It can also act as a keratolytic and buffering agent in cosmetics and skin care.
Humectants are very effective skin-hydrators. They attract water and bind water from the atmosphere and the deeper layers of the skin. This helps prevent water loss from the skin and gives a feeling of elasticity.
As a humectant this product helps keep the skin hydrated and there has been reports that it helps improve the moisture content of the skin by up to 84%
Derived from the natural fermentation of sugars found in corn and beets, sodium lactate is the sodium salt of lactic acid.
This product is rich in electrolytes, so it doesn’t work well with electrolyte-sensitive emulsifiers and thickeners.
