AcquaCell is a natural complex combining watermelon rind extract, Lens Esculenta (Lentil) Fruit Extract and apple extract in an optimized delivery system.
Watermelon rind is one of nature’s few materials to contain citrulline. Citrulline is essential to the functioning of filaggrin which forms a critical part of the skin’s own water based moisturizing complex. The lentil extract contains vitamin B5 and trisaccharides. The apple starch is a source of polysaccharides, sodium lactate and sodium PCA.
Tested on 20 subjects at 3%, AcquaCell provided 24 hours’ skin hydration with one simple application and significantly reduced fine lines after 2 hours. With one simple application, AcquaCell increased the cell membrane fluidity by 40%. AcquaCell upregulates filaggrin by 123% and AQP3 by 144%. In two weeks at 3%, applied twice daily, AcquaCell increased the water retained by corneocytes by 85%. Tested for 2 weeks, AcquaCell dramatically increased key elements in the skin: Citrulline by 440%, Sodium PCA by 180%, Sodium Lactate by 60%. Moisture in the skin increased by 35%, dryness decreased by 60% and skin cohesion increased by 50%
