The Inkey List Polyglutamic Acid
Also known as ‘Your Beauty Translator’, THE INKEY LIST’s aim is simple: break through beauty jargon to deliver a straightforward take on skin care’s most-wanted ingredients (at astoundingly reasonable, ‘give-it-a-go’ prices). If your skin leans on the dry side, chances are you’ve tried hyaluronic acid – but what if we told you that there’s a magical molecule that can hold four times as much moisture? This mind-blowing phenomenon is called (you guessed it…) polyglutamic acid – and chances are you’ll be seeing a lot more of it as the beauty realm catches wind of its ultra-hydrating abilities. This incredible formula is quickly absorbed into skin, granting ultra-soft and supple skin instantly.
Once you’re done trying to pronounce it, THE INKEY LIST’s Polyglutamic Acid is the dryness-banishing formula that all dehydrated skin types should add to their #shelfie. Holding four times more moisture than hyaluronic acid (*gasp*), polyglutamic acid is a hydration powerhouse – and then some. Unlike hyaluronic acid, the magical ingredient has large molecules, allowing it to form a thin film on the skin’s surface to prevent water loss, while plumping the appearance of fine lines and brightening lacklustre or uneven complexions. With a 3% polyglutamic acid complex, THE INKEY LIST’s formula leaves skin smooth, supple and oh-so hydrated – you can even combine it with their Hyaluronic Acid for a mega dose of moisturising goodness.
