The association of Xylitylglucoside / Anhydroxylitol / Xylitol is sold by Seppic under the tradename Aquaxyl. It is patented by Seppic, and claimed to “reinforce the synthesis of essential lipids and proteins involved in the organisation of the corneus layer”. This leaded Seppic to emphasize the 2 following benefits of its active ingredient in moisturization :
- it “increases reserves and circulation of water” in skin dermis / epidermis
- it “reinforces skin barrieres” for “anti-dehydration power” in epidermis
These benefits are claimed by Seppic to be visible within 8 and 24 hours.
