HERBEA AQUA is formulated using the technology from Switzerland for hydrating and moisture retention up to 72 hours. Other than instant hydrating and moisture retention effects, HERBEA AQUA also gives you medium to long term benefits to your skin. Lets find out how.
Saccharide isomerate – the active worker of HERBEA AQUA
Saccharide isomerate has structure similar to human skin natural moisturizing factor (NMF). It can reproduces the effect of NMF in skin’s moisturization. This similarity in structure also allows it to bind strongly to free lysine amino acid in skin protein to ensure it is not wash away easily. This unique binding mechanism enable it to improve skin hydration continually until it is naturally removed from skin by desquamation.
This ingredient is 100% natural. It has been certified to ECOCERT Standards for Natural Organic Cosmetics, COSMOS Standards, and complies to NATURE criteria.
Short term benefit of HERBEA AQUA
You can expect an instant hydrating effects that reduce the dry skin signs (tightness, itchiness, flakiness, redness and sensitive etc.) by 20% after 4 weeks according to Kligman’s Clinical Grading. The effects was proven to last for 72 hours.
Medium term benefit of HERBEA AQUA

Long term benefit of HERBEA AQUA
HERBEA AQUA will regulate the genes expression in human keratinocytes to increase the production of filaggrin (which used to form NMF), cornified envelope, ceramide and hyaluronan (HA). All these are natural components in our skin involved in moisture retention. Which means, your skin will regain the moisture retention ability with these components produced by your skin naturally.
Besides, HERBEA AQUA also strengthen your skin barrier function over time. The graph below shown 20% reduction in Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL) before and after 28 days application.
