PolyFructol Plus: 48h hydration and more

Published: 15-Feb-2023

Natural health promoting moisturiser

PolyFructol Plus is a highly concentrated solution of the plant-based oligosaccharide inulin which is combined with lecithin derived liposomes that efficiently improve skin hydration.

Inulin is a natural sugar extracted from the chicory root that is known as being a great prebiotic ingredient within skincare: it helps to preserve the healthy appearance of the skin by balancing the skin’s microbiota. This oligosaccharide keeps the skin nourished and moist.

Placebo-controlled clinical studies have shown that PolyFructol Plus:

  • increases the skin hydration after only a single application in a shower product formulation and hydrates the skin, even after rinsing
  • protects the skin from repeated washing stress by improving skin moisture, firmness, smoothness, and elasticity
  • significantly improves the skin barrier, moisturisation, firmness, elasticity, and smoothness in a long-lasting manner, even two days after treatment has been stopped.

PolyFructol Plus is therefore an ideal addition to moisturizing leave-on as well as rinse-off formulations.
