y-PGA essence (Gamma-Poly-Glutamic Acid)
As is well known, Natto is a part of regular diet of many Japanese. Natto, a superfood, contains many vitamins, easily digestible proteins and various digestive enzymes, etc.. Further, it contains gamma-glutamic-acid (y-PGA), a.k.a. natto gum, which is the major component of the mucilage of natto.
The y-PGA is a strong moisturizing agent. With its special molecular structure, it has triple moisturizing effect - capturing, locking and retaining the moisture, and increasing natural moisturizing factors through boosting the production of filaggrin. All this together helps to restore the natural rehydrating ability of skin. It is important to keep the skin moist as only moist skin surface can efficiently absorb oxygen from the atmosphere. Under normal conditions, a substantial part of the upper skin is supplied by direct oxygen uptake from the atmosphere. Insufficient oxygen supply significantly reduces skin’s natural moisturizing ability. Eventually visual signs of dry and ageing skin appear.
The γ-PGA also brightens the skin, reduces the fine lines and smoothens wrinkles, leaving your skin radiant and moist.
