In nature, Gluco-glycerol (also known as Glyceryl Glucoside) is utilised by organisms such as blue-green algae to help them survive in extreme conditions of dehydration. Scientific tests proved that Gluco-glycerol could penetrate into the deeper epidermal layers of the skin and stimulate the production of AQP3. As Wolber adds: “We now needed to formulate Gluco-glycerol and develop effective and appealing products.”
The result is the unique Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE range of face and body moisturisers. Demanding clinical and dermatological studies on volunteers with dry and dehydrated skin have demonstrated the moisturising benefits of the products.
Wolber highlights the fact that results are: “immediate and intense. Just 24 hours after first use we saw an impressive increase in skin moisture levels.” These benefits increase over time, with results demonstrating improved moisturisation after regular use and, importantly, “the results are long-lasting. Skin continues to be well moisturised for a while even after the volunteers stopped using the products.”
