Regimen's Take

Cassia Angustofolia Seed Polysaccharide is a plant-derived polysaccharide particularly effective at "plumping" skin. As Cassia is a polysaccharide with strong hygroscopic properties it is compared with Hyaluronic Acid. The problem with Hyaluronic Acid is that at concentrations above 1% it is extremely sticky. In our tests, even at 1.5%, HA was nearly impossible to apply on the face! In skincare, using humectants like Cassia allows high overall concentrations of hydration without becoming sticky. This is a great hydration ingredient for all skin types and is highly skin compatible.


We are big fans of Cassia Angustofolia Seed Polysaccharide, especially as it is effective in high concentrations!
