Biosaccharide gum-4 is a derivative of sorbitol, a natural sugar alcohol extracted from a plant source. Produced through a patented biotech process, it forms a non-occlusive film to protect skin from pollution and UV rays.
Studies have shown that pollution and UV rays cause oxidation, inflammation, and DNA damage in skin cells. The overall effect is irritation and premature aging. It’s difficult to fight these with any one skincare product because there are so many different pollutants involved in atmospheric and domestic pollution, each with their own properties and chemical compositions.
Biosaccharide gum-4 provides global protection against pollution by forming a “breathing” matrix on skin that prevents pollutants from penetrating the epidermis. It is the only skin active to protect against such a wide range of pollutants and fine particles while letting skin breathe.
