Natural moisturizing factor (NMF) is a combination of substances that regulate the moisture level of the skin by binding and holding water molecules. It`s naturally produced by the cells of stratum corneum.
In our formulas, we use a variety of these substances to ensure proper hydration of the skin layers.
Why is it important?
-Maintains skin smoothness and elasticity
-Supports the barrier function of the skin
- Activates hydrolytic enzymes which are necessary for natural dead skin shedding (desquamation).
