A deficiency of natural gamma linoleic acid can allow too much water to be lost through the skin. When this happens, the face may rapidly lose its firm, youthful contours.
Cellex-C G.L.A. Extra Moist Skin Cream is an almond-colored, extra rich moisturizer for hydrating very dry skin. The formulation contains optimal levels of Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) from Evening Primrose Oil, along with skin benefitting vitamin E and herbal extracts to soothe chapped and irritated skin. The luxuriously rich moisturizer instantly make the driest skin feel moist and velvety. The formulation encourages formation of a lipid moisture-barrier film to help prevent water loss from the surface of the skin.
G.L.A. (gamma linoleic acid), derived from evening primrose flowers, is known to increase the permeability and flexibility of cell membranes and helps regulate water loss. By ensuring that the skinís surface moisture level remains optimal, G.L.A. Extra Moist also helps
to prevent dehydration and other visible signs of premature aging of the skin. Experiments have shown that dry, scaly, aging skin results when linoleic acid (which is synthesized in the body to G.L.A.) is absent from the diet.Suitable for very dry skin and skin prone to eczema and psoriasis.Note:
G.L.A. Extra Moist contains a higher percentage of the G.L.A. and other skin emolients than the G.L.A. Dry Skin Cream.
