- The Natural Moisturizing Factor in Human Skin
Na-PCA with Aloe Vera is a Ph-balanced, concentrated solution of the sodium salt of pyrrolidone carboxylic acid (the natural moisturizing factor found in human skin), combined with the highest quality aloe vera gel.
Na-PCA is synthesized from glutamic acid, a nonessential amino acid. The skin contains natural moisturizers, the most important being Na-PCA. Old skin contains only about half the amount of Na-PCA as that found in young skin. The ability of skin to hold moisture is directly related to its Na-PCA content. It is water and not oil, that keeps skin soft and supple. Na-PCA keeps skin moisturized, improving its appearance, and giving it a moist and youthful glow. Na-PCA with Aloe Vera provides quick relief from dry and cracked skin, shaving irritations, detergent rash and other minor skin irritations.
After bath or shower, spray Na-PCA on the hands and apply to the face and other skin areas. It can be applied under makeup or skin cream or used under shaving cream for a more close, non-irritating and smooth shave. Na-PCA can be sprayed on live plants to enrich their moisture content.

iHerb Customer Reviews
Na-PCA is very easy to apply, it's refreshing, non-greasy, and it helps to really moisturize my skin. The downside is that unfortunately, I didn't read the ingredient description carefully before buying and using it for a while so I didn't realize it contains methyl paraben as a preservative. I avoid products that are not all natural or organic, so naturally, I will not be purchasing this again for myself.
I have been using this for years. It's a refreshing moisturizer that's been great for my oily skin since it's very light with no greasy or heavy feeling.
