INCI: Glycine

Glycine is an amino acid that is essential for health and can be found in a variety of food sources. Amino acids can effectively penetrate the skin due to their low molecular weight. Glycine can act as a buffering agent to alter and maintain the pH of a formulation and forms part of the skins own natural moisturising factor.

Glycine is also used in anti-ageing preparations due to its ability to increase collagen synthesis in the skin.

Amino acids can also function as anti-statics in hair care formulations due to their affinity for the surface of the hair.

Up to 3%  Add to the aqueous phase below 55°C

Good For Skin Care

This product is an amino acid which is necessary for the skin.

Glycine is an amino acid that is really useful in anti aging products because of its ability to improve moisture retention, increase collagen production, and promote skin repair and regeneration.

This particular Glycine is working very well in my DIY skin products,, I am more than pleased although I am still in the experimental stage.
